“Pleasant staff and an enjoyable experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

This a help yourself buffet restaurant with a variety of Asian dishes, and although the selection available is considerably less than listed on the menu, it does state clearly that any preferences would be cooked on request. The food was tasty and plentiful with helpful and friendly staff to ensure an enjoyable evening.

“Great Value Buffet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Great Value Buffet. Duck and pancakes, salad, chicken balls with sweet and sour and noddles selected for starters. Lamb Madras and pilau rice along with Gurkha pork curry for main all excellent, Lamb was v hot just the way I like it one chewy chunk that I left on the side of my plate, this is not unusual in many resaurants ive ever eaten in and paid alot more. Agree Korma and Tikka Masala looked pale but I cannot comment on them as did not try them, people who say the food is bland did not try what I did. Hubby liked Sagg Aloo and Aloo Chana would eat here again when in Ilfracombe.
