Firstly, the decor, cleanliness and hygiene are first class. The staff are very capable and accommodating. We have been many times, once with my mother, who needed the lift, and even though it is not usually in use, they were very helpful. Sunday lunch is good value, but restaurant almost empty. The main courses from evening menu are very good.... More

Have eaten here a few times. The service was excellent and the staff very attentive and pleasant. The buffet dishes were varied and fresh. In general the ambience is good. Would recommend to book for Thursday night buffet as can get very busy..

Ngai's is an "oriental" restaurant, that has a Thai section in it's menu. They really need to get a Thai Chef in to show them how it is done, or remove the Thai items from the menu altogether. My partner ordered a Thai Red Curry, a dish we have enjoyed both at home and in Thailand. Oh my God! What... More
