Canny little place

I have been put right off all you can eat buffet restaurants after a few horrible experiences this past year. However the food seemed to be of good quality for an all you can eat buffet. Our group was happy with the food, service and decor overall! Recommended!

Nice food, it is what it is in that you get the typical Chinese buffet selection. When going to these places you expect your fill and not fine dining, so with that in mind you can't go wrong.

Most of the staff are inviting and friendly. I thought for food was limited choice. No duck with pancakes. What food I did have was hot and tasty. The times are set and I did feel like your are aware watching the time throughout your meal. It's like some of the staff can't wait to get you out to clean... More

Ate here as a party of 6 and we all really enjoyed the experience. The problem with buffets or should I say my problem is that there is so much choice and my eyes are bigger than my belly so I over indulge and before I know it I feel a bit full and slightly nauseous and although I have... More

Chinese buffets are never going to offer fine dining so you get what you pay for and what I had at lunchtime recently would have been more than acceptable from any local Chinese takeaway. It was all tasty and hot and although it's best to avoid the food right on top of the serving dishes. £20 quid for two with... More

Never been before but would most definitely go back. The food was lush and the staff were polite and made us feel welcome. Good choice of food and the desert were lovely. Give it a go you will not be disappointed.

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
