“Value for Money All You Can Eat Buffet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

Went last eve for a family get together complete with local vouchers, excellent service, attentive, good variety of piping hot buffet food from poppodoms through to sweet. Eat as much as you like and drinks usual prices, not extortionate. Highly recommend and no experience of any of the negative comments from others listed on here.

“don't bother if you have purchased a local radio fine dining voucher”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

booked the table advising that we were going to be using the voucher purchase through local radio and they said this would be ok. When we got there the person on the phone had not booked us our table so again advised that were using voucher which was part of the terms on purchasing voucher. We ordered our starter which came fairly quickly and whilst we were eating it the chef came over to our table to ask if we were ready for our main meal. We advised him that we were still eating our starter and wouldn't want it for a while, He returned to the kitchen and straight away the waiter came with our main meal. We advised him that we were not ready for it and said that we had already advised the chef of this. He apologised for the mistake and took the meal back. However when we were ready for the meal, the meal was bought to us in dribs and drabs and was getting colder by the minute, on eating the meal it was very very clear that it was the same meal that had been bought to us earlier. The rice was hard and tasteless the curry was cold and tasteless and consisted mainly of onions. The meal was the worst meal I have ever had. Thier only saving grace was the sweet girl behind the counter. On hindsight I should have refused to pay for the main meals and only paid for the starters and drinks but after complaining to the young girl behind the counter, who was full apologises, I never had the heart to refused to pay. However, I WILL NOT BE DOING A REPEAT VISIT TO THE RESTAURANT.

“Great Nepalese/Indian food at reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

We enjoyed the set-price Sunday evening buffet. Plenty to choose from, with diverse flavors, including appetizers and entrees of many types. Cordial, friendly staff too.

“Fantastic flavours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

Have been twice and the food is excellent, the atmosphere is calm and endearing. The tradition costume and staff are very friendly. You can watch the chefs cooking and the smells are amazing. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.
