I've never been to a restaurant like this, with such contradictory impressions...it's weird! All you can eat for £8 in a large space that feels like a school hall decorated for Chinese New Year, with customers (and their children) in a constant rush to refill their plates doing battle with the waiting staff who are on a permanent mission to re-stock the serving trays.
The food isn't bad, and the amount of choice is amazing, so it seems a bit disingenuous to critisise, but restful it is not! The serving tables are situated around the room and customers pick a plate and queue to "graze" from dozens of dishes. The plates aren't hot, and by the time you've waited for others to choose their food and returned to your table your food isn't either.
The tables are certainly packed in and unfortunately we had a table next to the food and were
surrounded by a constant rush of people carrying plates of food, many with a string of noodles hanging off that dragged across the back of our coats. The waiting staff, whilst not overly friendly, worked hard and cleared tables efficiently.
I think this is a restaurant for a specific set of circumstances. If you're very hungry and need to eat in a rush, this may be the place for you. I certainly wouldn't go to Day's if I was trying to impress on a first date...even on the tightest of budgets! However, for the cost of a MacDonalds this makes a very good alternative and I might eat here again.
