Good value

Good quality buffet for the price. Full range of starters also duck and pancakes and sushi. Main courses a good variety including some freshly cooked for you. Wide range of deserts including fresh fruit. Efficient service.

Nice place to visit for something cheap and cheerful. Some of the dishes are delicious some are bland and boring. The desserts are very small and some are in little plastic shot glasses which you can't even fit a teaspoon into so you burn off all the food you've consumed at dinner by trying to actually get your dessert out...

Went yesterday for my Birthday and food was ok but not somewhere I would be in a hurry to go back to, The place itself was lovely and staff very friendly but the food was average.

2 out of 10 is all I can give this place, Very disappointed, food quality not good. But I guess if you are one of the local riff raff then you would enjoy place.

We arrived as two couples separately and were very quickly re-united and served. Drinks came quickly. The food was self service and of a good quality. Any selctions that were running down were replaced very quickly. A wide range of dishes across the range of starters, main courses and dessrts are available.

Came with family as we had heard it being good quality food and good value and when we arrived you could tell it was just that. There was plenty of different Chinese dishes more then I expected actually. However, they could improve by adding more desserts to their dessert section. All in all nice food and nice quality!

Recently visited this restaurant with family for my birthday and had a lovely time. I have coeliac disease and the last time I was there I had to be taken round the food by a member of staff and be told what food was ok for me to eat. This was difficult to remember because there is so much choice!... More

We have tried my buffets for chinese around the area and we find this is as good as some of the more pricey ones in town. The kids love it and we do to as if the kids can find something to enjoy it makes life easier for us.! The lunches are good for only £5.90 and the night time... More

We had not been for a while because the quality and variety of food had really deteriorated but I am more than pleased to say it is back to it's best. The food was absolutely delicious and of excellent quality. We will definitely be back soon.
