“Cheap and cheerful grub!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Enjoyed this Chinese buffet for the price paid for it (£5.50 per person for food and £1.30 for a can of Pepsi). Although there isn't a massive selection of different dishes, they do have a good variety of some key Chinese dishes and to me there was sufficient choice. The food was hot and constantly being replenished with fresh bowls. It was tasty and the dishes worked well together, and the staff were efficient yet still friendly. Lots of other tables of people just dropped in for a quick buffet lunch, but we were there for about an hour or so and managed a couple of decent sized plates of food. Doesn't necessarily look like much from the outside but I would definitely recommend this place and return there myself when I'm next in London!

“Pay more and go somewhere decent”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Tempted here by the cheap prices but wished we'd spent a bit more. The food was poor-average. We ate upstairs and had to keep going downstairs to the buffet and then up again. Upstairs was more like a waiting room than a restaurant, very sparsely furnished and cramped. No service except for drinks which weren't cold.

“Pretty good - especially for the price.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

After a birthday trip to see Jersey Boys, followed by a few drinks in the Admiral Duncan, my wife and I saw that this place was open, and we thought that we would give it a try. We were very surprised, both by the quality and by the price. The food was fresh and tasty, and our bill, including a Chinese beer, came to under £19! The only drawback was that the food was not that hot. Still it was passable, and we would both definitely come here again.

“What do you expect for under a tenner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Cheap and cheerful, no service but food hot and tasty perhaps a little greasy. Ideal if you are on your way out somewhere of need a quick bite to eat, but certainly not a venue in itself. Take it in that context and it serves its purpose.

“Cheap and cheerful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

I think the title sums this place up very cheap at £5.50 a head and £1 for chinese tea. Buffet consists of Soup, noodles,rice, chick wings,spring rolls, chick curry, a beef dish, sweet and sour chicken and prawn crackers. Where else can you get all of this for this price all fresh and hot. Staff are cheerful and polite give me this over McDs any day.
