Worst Chinese restaurant I have ever stepped football in. myself and partner sat down at 5.25 and basically had a menu chucked at us by a very rude member of staff. We were told no buffet and had to pay £12.95 each instead. Food was an absolute joke tiny portions presented on very old chipped saucers. Waited around 20 mins... More

Ordered from here tonight as an impulse as was hungry and couldn't decide between Chinese or pizza. After deciding on pizza, the choice was endless online, ordered the chicken balls and fried rice with bbq sauce, prawn crackers, sesame toast and sweet honey ribs. I wasn't disappointed, there was plenty to eat and was pleasantly surprised at the quick delivery... More

Visited here for a sit down meal last night. The reception was awful, the staff were awful - they were not very welcoming nor friendly. In a nut shell; they are charging £12.95 per person for 'all you can eat'. There is no buffet in the evening, you order off the menu. When it comes to ordering they limit the... More

Food is just bland. I suppose for the price it's OK. But if you don't like chicken, I really wouldn't bother.

Both myself and my partner had a very hard day in work today and couldn't be bothered cooking, we've gone to the restaurant itself and loved it. Food is really nice and service has always been pleasant but recently we've started ordering take away which has been good up until this time. We ordered the delivery for 7:25 as we... More

We visited the Oriental Buffet at 5.15pm just after the evening service started at 5 so the cost of our All you can eat was £12.95 each, we were informed that as the buffet selection was not available we could order from the menu and our selections would be cooked to order. Not exactly what we had planned on but... More

Look, you get what you pay for. It's OK. A good choice of hot tasty food. Service was good. You can't expect a lot for £8 per head and eat as much as you can. Desserts were disappointing not alot of choice. Overall it's not bad. I would go again.

We have been using this buffet on and off over the last 8/9 years and it has always been good. For £6.95 there is not a huge choice of dishes it suits me as nearly all of them I like, the only thing I'm not too fussed on is the rice is too stodgy it was all stuck together. Would... More
