One and only visit back in the autumn of 2014. My mate who lives in Bristol and who's birthday I went up there for raved about the place. I must say his raving was justified. The amount of food on offer is immense and the variety from different parts of the culinary globe is fab. I had concerns re the... More

Single price for a huge variety of dishes. Mostly Asian or Indian but also Italian dishes making up a large buffet. Some of the dishes are very good and the service for wine orders etc is friendly and efficient. For what it is hard to fault and deservedly popular

Book here for an 18th Birthday meal, i can honestly say the food was better than most All you can eat restaurants. The food was topped up regularly and there was a wide range of dishes to choose from, fresh sea food cooked, steak house, grill all cooked fresh. The desert area was extremely over crowed with kids and decimated... More

Went here as a group of adults on a Friday evening for a 6.30 reservation and was really surprised at the number of children in the restaurant having birthday parties. But have been at least 60. The quantity of the food can not be argued with as there is lots!! I thought the fresh seafood was really food and was... More

Went here on a Sunday, having booked the place for 2 and a baby I was told that I should have booked the table for three although I had mentioned in my comments while booking that I have a baby and had also personally called two days before to clarify that I need a high chair. Anyways, we were crammed... More

The prices were not too bad when we visited a couple of times. No wonder that it attracts quite a lot of students from Bristol University. Cuisine from all around the world, lots of it. We thoroughly enjoyed our visits.

OK, so this place is never going to win awards for the quality of it's food, but it does serve an amazing variety of decent food at a reasonable price. This is the ideal place to go with a large group of friends as you are guaranteed that everyone will find something they like. My Asian friends also approve of... More
