Always a good buffet

We often use this place for a buffet lunch. The food is always good and tasty if a little limited in choice. Staff are great fun and very helpful. We love the banana fritters and cream! Reasonably priced but a few drinks can push the bill up somewhat. I recommend it :)

Excellent value lunch - £7.50 all you can eat buffet. Plenty of choice. Friendly staff. Clean toilets. I particularly liked the salt and pepper aubergine. All 3 generations of my family enjoyed it. We will return.

Service was slow, good selection of dishes on the menu for £8-£9 but then noticed right at the back of the menu it states there is a minimum charge of £15 per head. I ordered a small coke which they openly poured out of a 99p 1.5ltr bottle of coke and charged me £1.89 for !!!!! Expensive and I won't... More

nothing good: all the meats tasted old or rotten, shrimp just ok, noodle absolutely dry, no soup available, sad desserts. The waiters were polite. Go somewhere else!

A nice place to unwind after a very long week. Food was excellent service good & staff very friendly although the heating could have been turned up a little.

We had a couple of take-aways delivered and always disappointed as you pay the restaurant prices but it just isn't as good (we maintain Master Chef in Kettering is the best for takeaway Chinese.

I've eaten here a few times. The food is always excellent. However, it's the take out service we use the most. I'l almost embarressed to admit we eat out from this place most weeks! We've tried all the local chinese restaurants, as this definitely isn't the cheapest, however we keep returning to Lee Garden. The delivery service is very efficient,... More
