Upside Very good value - large selection of delicious dishes at not much more than the price of a takeaway. Popular, with customers taking full advantage of 'eat all you want'. Downside - tables close together, difficult to get more than one glass of tap water.

Having had a few bad experiences a few months back I decided to give this one last try..the usual warning on arrival at 5.30pm that we must vacate before the price increase at 7.00pm..which was fine by us. Despite ordering beers, a bottle of wine and several soft drinks for 2 adults and three children..when we asked for a glass... More

Great range of Chinese food in a help yourself to all you want buffet. What more could you want? It's all here - with a car park as well. Great value, especially at lunch time.

Plenty of choice and variety of foods - something for everyone. Price quite reasonable too - only problem is they do rush you to finish when the price goes up so customers paying more can be served. Understandable I suppose !

This is an all you can eat buffet,. If you go after, I think, 7 pm it is more expensive but there are a few extras on the menu. I have been a few times on the more expensive menu and it was ok but on the cheaper menu I was not impressed.

Went recently a little apprehensively after reading mixed reviews. Pleased I decided to try out myself. Went for evening session and range of food was excellent and nice and hot. Only downside was that drinks were pricey, but overall good value for money.

Just came back from this awful restaurant. Booked table for 21 and was only given enough seats for 18. Then I went flying on the greasy slippery floor and nearly took my 6 year old with me. Complained to the "manager" and was offered a free coke for the trouble. When I went for food the last next to me... More

Means food is constantly refreshed by friendly helpfull staff. In about 20 visits never even had to wait for a table. Have even... More

Decided to drop in Saturday lunch time with the family but didn't get very far.! Ordered soft drinks for all of us but as I have a medical issue I always need water when eating. Never had a problem with this at any restaurant anywhere but when I asked for a pint of tap water I was told I'd need... More

Dear Reviewer First of all, we are sorry to hear that you had an unsatisfactory visit to our restaurant. We do give two standard glasses in place of a pint and you can have as much as you like. There is also no charge for tap water We hope you can see past this and come into the restaurant and... More
