This I a fast food Chinese restaurant and the staff are very polite and always helpful, clean and reasonably priced, I would rather have a long sit down and order from a menu but you cannot win them all, I might go back again.

If you like sitting in a works canteen, you'll love this place. Food is Luke warm as its set out in trays. Staff are friendly but nothing else good to say about this place.

The food if you can call it that was shocking you can see why they take your money of which the person taking it was ignorant before you sit down.we got one plate of food which we didn't eat and would not recommend it to anyone.

This was okay as far as buffet style restaurants go. Food was tasty but I would definitely go for the vegetable dishes instead of meat. Shame about clientele, crass behaviour from locals I'm presuming grimsby (think along the lines of the shocking program 'skint'...)

Worst buffet I've ever been to. The dishes were quite empty with no signs of getting filled up, the ones that had food in them were all dried up and didn't taste good. The staff didn't acknowledge us or any other customers apart from the woman who took payment for the meal before we sat down. They never cleared our... More

I have been here many times over the past few years for various occasions and this time was for Mother's Day. We rang a few days before to see if we could book a table as suspected it would be busy at lunchtime, when we wanted to go. We were told we could only book for a minimum of 7... More

After going there for a second time, food tastes different from our first visit, curries watered down. Chicken slightly pink and undercooked with a rubbery texture. Chips are dry and overcooked, only got scraps of chips, they are frozen chips not proper potato chips. Makes me wonder whether all the food is cooked from frozen or reheated from frozen. The...
