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

This place has been around for about a decade and has at some points been closed down! I gave it a try at lunch time with my parents and partner, and unlike my previous visits (over five years ago) it only has several different food dishes on offer. Battered chicken balls tasted brilliant but was unsure of one as to... More

Food just ok, but the service of staff was appalling when we went there. soft drinks really expensive, more like a canteen experience

Avoided this place a few times as I have always been put off as it doesn't look very apertising from outside, however after the Wales v Scotland game, my scottish friends wanted to go here for food so we popped in late on a Saturday night. The buffett was finished but we were told that we could order from the... More
