“Good value, awful service.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014 via mobile

Went in with my housemate and the food was very good considering how little we paid. However, staff were horrendously rude and behaved as though serving customers was a complete hassle.

“Decent enough”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

I ate here while working in Inverness. The food is of a decent standard, and the staff are all pleasent enough. A solo diners bill coming in at £12 including one pint of orange juice is good value in my opinion. the restaurant has a great view of the River Ness. A decent Chinese buffet all in all.

“Does what it says on the tin”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

Efficient clearing service of this fairly well stocked Chinese buffet. Cheap and cheerful is the name of the game, but there were some surprising dishes in there as well if you can take the time to find them. Worth a try for the hungry traveller as long as you don't expect anything too much?!

“Night out to suit all family”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

Had evening with my daughter and friends, with a view of the river Ness.
The staff were scarce and had to try and get someone to pay, as they were in another room eating. The food was nice, but wouldn't want to go again

“Worst service ever experienced”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

Having been to a number of Jimmy Chung's restaurants, I know that the service I experienced here is not the norm. The staff were extremely unfriendly, glum looking and rarely came near us. One waiter who showed us to our table and gave us our drinks was on his phone and sitting at another table chatting; another waiter was eating his dinner at another table in between serving customers. Our dirty plates were not taken away and I had to stare out the waiter to get a fresh water. Just before dinner was served (half4ish) all the chefs came out the kitchen and were sitting eating what appeared to be their dinner! This was while customers were still finishing lunch/ beginning dinner. During this time our plates were stacking up. It also clearly stated to pay at your table. However as no staff were about, we waited and then went to the bar. The staff member did not look very impressed and somewhat threw our bill down at us. My partner took out his card to pay and the waiter tutted! They also charged us for tap water as 'soft drinks' but of course we did not pay. Genuinely the worst service I have ever experienced, which is a shame because our local Jimmy Chung's in Dundee is always friendly and quick.
