“Lots of choice . Go before 5. ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Go before 5 to get the best value for money. Any later and you are paying dearer for the same food. Range of food. Tasty and worth the money. All you can eat and the food is sitting ready and at peak times it is replenished frequently so is never cold. Worth a visit. A favourite spot while living in the uni area.

“Winter food!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

Called in for a Boxing Day meal with the family as we heard from friends it was very good!
Well for a winters day outside the food wasn't much warmer inside! Upon arrival we were seated upstairs and after we got comfortable we started looking for our food choices! Nearly everything on the upstairs selection was cold!! The curry and gravey sauces had a thicker skin than your average elephant. The noodles were stiff AND cold! All in all a pretty poor experience! After my wife complained we were told the food downstairs was warmer! And after being re-seated down stairs and another selection, we found that was nearly the case! Still cold, but fair is fair, it wasn't as cold! Merely
Luke warm as compared to stone cold!
I'd honestly say a horrible experience as compared to other Chinese buffets we have been to!

“quantity not quality”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

I heard a lot of people talking about it here although following my personal experience i think it might just be due to the fact that there's not many all you can eat places around belfast. The food was mediocre. Not a huge aray of choice and everything seemed quite stodgy. There was a huge lack of dessert and atmosphere in general.

“Good value for budget food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

This is the sort of place you go when your starving not for a romantic meal, probably ideal for students. Basically you get what you pay for I would recommend it staff are very nice and you wont leave hungry.

“Rat in building!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

Me my partner and 2 kids were parked up out side waiting for the restaurant to open to go in for our lunch when we saw a massive rat wonder from the side of the building, a delivery van just arrived with produce for the restaurant as the man walked in the rat walked in in front of him , in shock I shouted to the man to tell him
And he just watch it run in and laughed, a worker ( I think manager ) the the manager came and stood at the door and I told him also and he just said we r going to try catch it and when the delivery man left the manager turned the open sign on and welcomed customers in to eat!! Safe to say we did not go there for our lunch! Disgusted!!
