This is a restaurant that's been around for years and years. Recently had a remodelling and revamping that makes it look better, and a place to delight patrons. The food is Chinese, buffet style and all you can eat for £7. Dinner price after 5 pm is £12 per person. Drinks are a separate cost. Still, it's all very affordable... More

The Big Wok is one of the best Chinese buffets you'll find in Birmingham. I eat here every time someone comes to visit me and sometimes I just go on my own. Their Mongolian lamb is fab...crispy on the outside and soft and tender on the inside. Lots to choose from, starts to desserts. There are two near-by car parks.... More

IT is probably 12 years since I last visited. I seem to recall it was one of the first buffet style places I ever visited. incredibly little has changed and the price seems even better value than it was then. THere is a huge range of food and the quality seems no worse than any Chinese restaurant and take away.... More

I came here because I wanted a good value Chinese Buffet. This place was quite a bit cheaper than the Ming Moon across the road. I found the decor quite basic and dated, and although I didn't see anything that indicated poor food hygiene I had a feeling about the place enough to check out the hygiene rating afterwards. To...

We haven't been here for a while, but for what you actually pay the food isn't bad. There is a good variety of food to choose from, was all hot when we ate there, just wouldn't say it was top quality produce......but we wasn't paying top quality prices either. The restaurant has a bit of a school canteen feel to... More

A few of us met here the night before a work conference for the all you can eat Chinese buffet. The food was good but not great enough to ensure I go there again with so many other Chinese restaurants nearby. The staff were very sweet but did forget to bring water to our table after asking. The dim sum... More
