Unless you are chinese do not expect your plares cleared or any other level of service. Oh and watch in case you get knocked over by the chinese hoards in their rush to ensure they get the last grain of rice. Hilarious

Staff really good, inattentive. Reasonably priced, you get what you pay for. This is probably one of the better restuartants of this type.

Delicious freshly cooked buffet here last Friday. We were tourists in Belfast so was our first time visiting this China China. All the staff were friendly and helpful and the food was delicious and reasonably priced. Would recommend to other buffet fans.

Well it was cheap £9.99 for as much as you can eat. Not much interaction from staff - shown to your table and no guidance as to the lay out. Food rather dried and could have been hotter. Very disappointing as it had been recommended...More

Went before 5 and thought it would be 6.99 as we were there well before 5, ended up paying 9.99 because we left after 5. Food was rubbery and tasted like it had been sitting for several hours. Charged us for two large cokes instead...More

Frequented by lots of students who came in & packed the takeaway boxes for £4. Advise arrive before school lunch time. Food was fine, lots of chicken based dishes and some beef. Couldn’t complain as fair price
