Go here often for a buffet. Food is lovely and is made fresh every time. Service is good and all staff are very friendly. Our favourite Chinese restaurant. We will continue going here for a long time

Went with my wife for an Evening Buffet. Great service, greeted at the door and shown straight to a table. Ordered from the buffet menu and all food was cooked fresh to order and arrived at our table very promptly. The dishes we sampled were all delicious and went home feeling very full. Wouldnt hesitate to visit again. Highly recommend.

Have always loved kachina. Small little Chinese that does all you can eat starters for £16.90. What I like about kachina is that you just order a little bit at a time which means you can make the evening last so much longer. The food is some of the best Chinese I've tasted in ages and it comes out piping... More

I arrived solo as on a business trip. Was made immediately welcome. Good choice of drinks and extensive menu which includes English dishes. I am a vegetarian so can sometimes struggle to find quality Chinese food but no problems here. I had a delicious bean curd and vegetable noodles. Absolutely delicious and plenty of it. I'll definitely return.

We regularly visit Kachina and would say it's one of the best buffets in Southampton. The staff are friendly and the food is always excellent!

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.

On arriving back in England from Italy, to again visited a hospital, my wife said "let's go to the Kachina."

This was a really nice lunchtime buffet went with wife and was advised to start with 4 or 5 starters which were very nice perhaps a dip of some sort for spring rolls would be nice.The starters were plenty but when we had finished the gentleman member of staff asked if we like some more so we had two 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
