There's other world buffets In Manchester that are quality and quantity for around the same price and sometimes less. One I would reccomend is tops. But I would not waste money here as... More

Had to queue up for a while for a table and it definitelt wasn't worth it. Much nicer places to eat around Manchester and if you want a buffet,... More

The staff were all very friendly and helpful. There was a wide selection of food available that was constantly replaced and replenished so was hot. Service was good and very reasonably priced for what you get.
