“standard chinese buffet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

We stopped at Xin buffet on a sunday with wife and 2 kids. Staff was extremely friendly and treated us like if we were very regular customers. There is a great variety of starters : from oysters to sushi and classical dim sum. Everything was ok, but nothing came out as being very good. Also a good variety of main courses including a "choose it yourself" wok where you chose your ingredients and a cook will cook them in front of you. Dessert buffet was pretty poor with a couple of fresh fruits (not tasting much), and some canned a frozen desserts. All in all nothing bad, but nothing great either. It is an all inclusive buffet, so soft drinks, wine, beer etc..are all unlimited.

“Pretty bad chinese buffet near Bruxelles”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

We stopped in this restaurant on our way to the suburbs of Bruxelles. The restaurant is big and it was pretty crowded which is usually a good sign.Unfortunately it was not the case. Pretty poor choice. Sushi was very average and so were the dim sum. The main dishes were greasy and pretty bland.
Drinks were included. But frankly not worth the money.

“The good and the bad of a buffet.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012

It's a buffet. With all the qualities and the inconveniences this implies.

According to the moment, you pay € 14 or € 28.

It always is good value for money.

Side service (it's a buffet, remember) and welcome are outstanding.

We tried the € 28 buffet an Sunday night. You have a large choice of soups, Seafood, starters including Suchi, main dishes including show cooking and dessert (fruit, pastry and ice cream).

A lot of dishes offered does not correspond to my perception of Chinese cooking (French fries, ousters, Suchis and more). Nobody care, everybody seems to enjoy the buffet.

As expected, it is somewhat crowded and noisy. With a lot of movement going on. Not the right place for a quiet or romantic evening.... Kids of poorly mannered parents run and shout in the restaurant and sometimes make a mess of the buffet....

Still, excellent value for money and a good place to go with friends, a sports club or the like.

“14€ Lunch Buffet Good Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

I would recommend this restaurant for large groups of friends and families wishing to experience cheap but good value food of a reasonable quality. The lunch time buffet during the week is just 14€ which includes all food and drinks. The white wine I tried was palatable I have tasted much worse, there is also rose, red, coke, water and beer. The restaurant is clean and the staff offer a very friendly service. The evening buffet during the week and weekends rises to 28€. My lunch time menu consisted of prawn crackers, sushi starter, spring rolls, chicken with rice with bamboo shoots on the side. Fresh melon and tinned pineapple fruit for desert. To drink white wine and green tea. For the price it was not too bad I had expected a lot worse and was pleasantly surprised. Will definitely go again!
