Visited with my partner on Friday night in January. Arrived at about 6.30pm got seated straight away was a little busy but still manageable round the buffet. Great selection of starters mains and desserts. As the night got on it started to get busier but with it being a Friday night totally understandable. I think anyone going as a family... More

The food was of a good quality considering it is a buffet. It is best to get there at the start of the sitting which we didnt realise as we just called in so we had only 30mins to eat our meal and then we had to be out. Unsure whether we would go back

Went here with a friend to celebrate a late birthday, after seeing that it was a pretty highly rated Chinese buffet in comparison to other local buffets such as Lau's (gross). Were a tad suspicious of the quality at first based off it still looking exactly like a pub on the outside, but not phased we went in anyway to... More

After recommendations we finally gave it a try today. There was plenty of choice and overall it was very tasty, although the food could be a bit warmer. The restaurant itself wasn't warm enough to take our coats off so we left sooner than we would've liked! Staff were quiet and not particularly friendly, although one of the girls was... More

Took both my children here for a birthday meal and arrived just after 5. Didn't realise that you had to be out by 6.20 otherwise you had to pay the next buffet price up. Felt really rushed. There is a good selection of food, but a lot of it is deep fried. Would have liked to have seen some crispy... More

Went here as a family of 5 at around 6pm, restaurant was fairly busy but we were seated straight away. Tucked into starters which were delicious! There is a great selection, spring rolls, chicken balls, ribs and soup etc. food seems to be continuously changed to fresh which I like too see. Then moved onto mains which were also delicious,...

Visited on a Sunday afternoon, had to wait about 5 mins for table which was fine. Good selection of Chinese food and they also had a carvery on which I never tried. The Chinese food was lovely and hot and fresh, not the usual bland watered down stuff you get at other all you can eat buffets, this tastes just... More
