“Really worth a visit if you like chinese”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

We went here with a friend on the first night of our holiday in Bournemouth, we had a voucher from Your Meal Ticket that enabled us to eat for £8.95 each if seated before 7pm. The normal price is £13.95 Sunday to Thursday, and £15.95 Friday and Saturday, and even those prices are very reasonable for what you get

We didn't quite know what to expect, but you have a menu, and can choose as much as you like from it. The portions are like tapas, and there is enough for each of your party to have a bit, if you want more of anything, just order it again. They did everything including duck with pancakes and king prawn dishes.

The place was packed, and the poor waitress was rushed off her feet, but she managed very well, when we are next in Bournemouth we will most defiantly return

“Great formula and it works”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

This restaurant has a great simple formula which works and ensures that it is very popular. Good atmosphere, food, service and value.
We had the 'buffet' which means that you can try as many dishes as you like (within reason of course). Food was good and service was very quick and efficient. The portions were small but sufficient. The waitresses were friendly and welcoming.
Good value for money and I would certainly go again.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012 via mobile

Have been here twice in the past 10 days. The food is excellent. We ate the buffet menu both times..... The food is awesome and then cooked fresh - very tasty! The only down side is that when it is busy the drinks orders are VERY slow. But we lived with that :) food was well worth it! The best all you can eat buffet in the eastern part of Dorset
