“Deep Fried ...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2010

Not great at all... all deep fried gloop and each dish tasted exactly the same ...
If you are after a bargain buffet this really is not the place!

“The worst Chinese buffet I have ever been to!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2009

There are a number of decent, good value Chinese buffets around most towns and cities and Leeds has its share...this is most definatley NOT one of them!!
The food was basic, cheap quality and tasteless with very little chioce.
The starters consisted of Spring rolls, soup, chips, ribs and thats about it!! Just a load of deep fried and re-heated crap!
Avoid!

“Cheap, but not worth it”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2009

This is the serve-your-own version of Maxi's restaurant; the chinese buffet, all you can eat for £10.

The only things that taste reasonable with the satay chicken for the starters, the remaining food was luke warm and pretty tasteless.
The atmosphere is like a big canteen so not the best. Service was quick and friendly but then again that is just for your drinks as the rest you do have to do yourself.
