Well, for 4.95 Euro we expected a limited choice of dishes but were surprised - around 25-30 trays were set out before us! The quality ranged from OK to good, but nothing I had was 'restaurant quality' but then I'm not expecting too much at that price. You need to buy a drink with every meal so a small Coke... More

Nice choice of food. Not very clearly labelled so weren't entirely sure of what I was eating but, always hot and tasty.

The overall meal was nice, it's buffet style, all you can eat priced at 4.95 euros for adults which let's be honest is great value, yes it's not 5 star but it's cheap and cheerful with some really nice elements of it, I would go back and I would recommend it. The service was really good although only the ladies... More

A choice of buffets - and I would pick the more expensive every time. You choose the raw ingredients and get it either grilled or wok-cooked there and then - so you know you're getting freshly prepared food. and only 9 Euro each.

We went in a large group with 2 vegetarians and they found the menu very limited (only one or two options) and were told we could all only choose 1 of the two buffets, or sit on separate tables. One member of the group thought her drink was totally substandard (she ordered fresh orange juice and they gave her orange... More

This place is great value with friendly staff and at €4.95 a head you cant go wrong, and they never stoped filling the buffet up. Plus the drinks were normal price . Bonus

Used to eat at Jumbos during past holidays, Jumbos no longer exists and we found the Golden City to be absolutely excellent, great food, friendly helpful staff, restaurant is spotlessly clean, immaculate toilet facilities also, thoroughly recommended. John and Marcia

Not one of the best Chinese buffets ever experienced. It was adequate and at E5.95 the quality & choice fell far below the standard of 21st Century over the road. Not all that busy incidentally!

We ate here again and were not disappointed, great freshly prepared food, fast turnover, tasty and good value. Watch out for the extras............. You MUST order drinks here in order to eat here......... A bottle of water costs 2.20 Euros (beer or wine might be cheaper) as a small bottle of water is only 35 cents in the local shops.... More

If you are vegetarian or pescatarian, forget a visit here. Vegetable chow mein was tasteless and resembled nothing you get in the UK. Fried potatoes soggy, too. There was nothing decent to eat, for me and a waste of time and money. Might be ok, if you have more of a choice than I did.
