My son chose to come here but was slightly dubious having read previous reviews however there was nothing to be worried about. The food was hot, plentiful and constantly replenished.

Visited after over six months and thought that it has gone downhill. Quality of food not the same. Took them ages to refill some of the dishes. Some weren't even refilled during our visit evem though they essentially empty. Not good value for money.

We have passed this buffet style restaurant on many occasions and decided to go in for a look before we committed our selves to a meal. All the food looked good and there was a good variety, so we decided to give it a go. This was a mistake as everything was equally bland and tasteless. The hot and sour... More
