We went to China china quite regularly and we enjoyed the food and the relaxing atmosphere, especially after church on Sunday. There are plenty of choices and always fresh and warm, from starters, mains, salads and desserts, the pancakes are absolutely beautiful!

On arrival we were left at the reception desk because there were no tables available even though we had booked . Grotty looking inside and very cramped around the self service area . The food was very bland and cold . The chicken and sweetcorn soup was tasteless and the prawn crackers were like cardboard . Service was poor too... More

Great value in the early bird before 7pm but be careful, it's the time you leave not arrive that you're charged on. Great selection and meat quality good. Great selection of ice cream sweets etc. It's a buffet so don't expect amazing quality food. Defo be back.

lets be fair and honest, the surroundings, the food, the service, and most importantly - the value for money, no any other restaurants can beat this little gem, which has been our family and many of other family's favorites. there are so many things kids love here. they deserve this 5 stars!

On entering the restaurant the food serving area was very cramped, busy and not much room to move. Decent selection of food, but tables, floor etc very dirty I left mid eating. Grubby. Not recommended

Visited with our three teenagers for the happy hour buffet and we were not disappointed. Staff were exceptionally friendly and attentive. Good was fresh and great quality and great value. Our teenagers are their body weight in food as usual. Five out of five, well done China China.

Last evening myself and my wife had the opportunity to dine at your restaurant for the quality of food we had and the warm welcoming, the price is reasonable. We were impressed with the entire experienced from the food, desserts, atmosphere and your associates as your assets. The recommendation they provide us is the live cooking teppanyaki station.

We went to China China this Sunday as we have been doing for the last two years. Our whole family enjoyed our meal a lot as usual. There are plenty of choices, hot dishes and cold salads, icecream and pancakes. Everything is just perfect. Staff are friendly. It got a bit too busy when a group of Chinese tourists coming... More

i want to keep this short because i felt that china china has wasted enough of my time already. Staff were horrible, treated when asking for a drinks order as a personal insult instead of a simple request. Food was basic fried and as far away from traditional chinese food as humanly possible. Place also needs a good clean. Price... More
