Every time I come here it never fails. So much choice, food is lovely both for lunch and evening. I personally prefer the evening sitting but I hadn't any complaints when we went a couple of Sundays ago when I was able to enjoy a Sunday lunch and/or Chinese foods. Will of course keep going back

10 family members visited for a get-together ranging in age from 8 to 70. Great selection of dishes and as we arrived for the 7pm banquet session, the food had just been put out from the kitchens. All our family members thoroughly enjoyed the experience and our food bill was just over £80 - so, fantastic value too! Will we... More
