The service was slow, we had to keep asking for things that we ordered which had not arrived. Some of us ate our mains had different times because of the poor service, the... More

Went in there for a leaving do for one of my managers tonight with about 15 other work colleagues. We all enjoyed our meals. Generous portions of Chinese food for starters and mains. Also enjoyed the apple fritters and ice cream for desert. Stall very friendly and service very efficient.

Visited on a busy Sunday evening. There was quite a wait inbetween seating us and ordering/receiving drinks however once the food came out, it was soon forgotten. Food was hot, good quality and plentiful.

(Not bragging but) we've been to some 2* Michelin restaurants but this is still our favourite! Have been going here for years and the price (£16.95, slightly more on New Year's Eve) is excellent, as is the service and food. The crispy lamb and the smoked chicken are to die for. All you can eat but they bring the dishes... More

A lovely meal with friendly staff. As the title suggests, we went for the all you can eat buffet. A really wide choice of starters and mains. Sensible restrictions on ordering to prevent waste. Will definitely go back for more.

Thank GarryH17
