“Good Food reasonable prices , drinks a little pricey, but good freindly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

Having been refused a meal due to alarge party by the neighbouring Turtle Bay restuarant on 10th dec 2013, myself and 7 friends literally piled in the restaruant at no notice at all and we all accomodated instantly with drinks and a fantastic welcome for a buffet meal.

Nothing was too much trouble for the lady that served us. we got to try differing starters and mains and swopped about between us. we were made to feel very welcome and were well looked after.
Our server was informative and friendly about which dishes were good and not so good ie spicy or hot. 7 buffet main meals with a starter was really good value at £15.95 per head, Some of our party found the soft drinks a little expensive, but the beer drinkers in our party found the beer and lager just right so swings and roundabouts on the drinks side.

Even when the restaurant started to get really busy , we were not hurried out or rushed. Such a lovely team of waiting staff, we wiil be back food soon.

Tip buffet meal very tasty and presented well.

“Lovely People”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

We went to the restaurant for the first time and loved it as the staff were so friendly and helpful as it is rare for us to go to a Chinese and they gave us such a lot of information about the food and the best choices to make.It was very early in the evening so things were not to busy and there was time to chat which was good. I was impressed by the cleanliness and the quality of the food. Worth a visit if you are around in that area

“Great food, poor everything else”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

The food is great, however, make sure you have three hours, turn up at twelve, as we arrived at 1225 and it started to get very busy, only two staff, under pressure. We have been 5 times this was the worst and I won't be returning or recommending because! We was argued with about how long we was there, no apologies made until we complained, however we was asked if we like to buy more expensive drinks ;-). I spent over £45 for four people, grab any menu, your get plenty from your local anyway, we did leave not trying other dishes that we wanted, it's a real shame

“fab food, drinks expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Had a lovely buffet meal here at a very good price. Only criticism is expensive drinks. £3 for a large coke seemed a bit excessive.
