Visited for a lunchtime buffet. This is an endless supply of starters followed by a main course. First rate service with excellent food. The restaurant was very clean and friendly.

Last went to this restaurant in 2014. Since then we have been back and forwards to Hospitals due to my wifes illness. On arriving back in England from Italy, to again visited a hospital, my wife said "let's go to the Kachina." Well, I walked through the restaurant door and was greeted by Nick who remembered us from over 2... More

Just been for the 2nd time and the food is delicious, the all you can eat option is fantastic value for money and is all cooked fresh to order and not sat around buffet style. The staff are friendly but can be a little too over attentive asking if you want the next course when my partner was still eating... More

We went out for a family meal having never visited before. It looked better on the inside than the outside as it looked a bit shabby in our opinion. We were welcomed and given a table by the door. We thought the service was attentive and friendly . The starters came out ten minutes after we ordered them and were... More

Staff were excellent,food was out of this world.Decor is a little dated though.Drink were a little on the expensive side but this was made up with the food quality.I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.5*****

I wouldn't decide to go in this restaurant just by walking past as the decor isn't great and it looks run down but looking at reviews we thought we'd give it a go. Food was absolutely amazing and piping hot. Decor isn't great inside either, could do with a facelift. Service is good and everyone was polite.
