Decent Chinese buffet food good variety and very nice desserts. Visited at lunch time very reasonably priced. Nice relaxed surroundings. Much nicer insider than it looks from the outside

Nothing special about this place; it's just another Chinese Buffet. Typical decor, typical food, typical service, typical price. If you've been to one, you know what to expect. Good spot to go in a pinch, or if you're looking to stuff yourself.

Visited this place with family as we had a small child with us and a Chinese buffet seemed easier with finding food for everybody. The food was greasy and bland and tasted like it was full of additives. The vegetables in the stir fry were overdone and limp. The "spicy" chicken sauce was not spicy in the least. There was...

We've been coming here for around ten years and we've never had a bad time! Fabulous food, especially for lunch and very family friendly. The prawns and mussels are the best for miles around.

We have been going in here for a number of years and it was getting a bit tired but they have done some refurbishment and increased the range of meals offered. As with most buffets there is a better choice in the evenings but daytime is still good. Good value for money and the new range of desserts is really... More

I have visited here a few times and found it a decent place to eat at. The food is reasonably good and is not expensive. The service is efficient and pleasant which is always good. For me the best thing is the selection of desserts which is plentyful. Worth visiting.
