Sunday Lunch.

We love to go on a Sunday as we can get a bit of English dinner and Chinese. Our family love it and will continue to go back. Food is always lovely.

I visited this place last night as part of a work night out and we had booked for at least 40 guests.

My family and I were due to meet a friend at another restaurant for a meal and catch up. Although originally from the area my friend no longer lived here so he didn't know of many places.

This place is a weird one. Sometimes the foods brilliant but mostly its the usual over heat lamped dried out food. The grand buffet serving more choice is a little better but i feel too pricey for the quality. Much prefer other places. Always works out expensive . and food .... Mediocre at best

My first, and last, visit here. Average food, but not good value at all. First time in my life I have been charged for tap water! Plenty of other places to go at are better Han this.
