We've been fairly regular customers here since it first opened. I think ownership may have changed in the last 6 mths as the frontline staff have changed, as well as the menu. Having said that, the quality has not. There have been changes to the menu, but for the better. Eat as much as you like, over 3-courses, for just... More

Good standard of buffet type food at a reasonable price. The variety of dishes is what you would expect at this type of restaurant.

Have been to this restaurant many times for lunch & a few times for the evening meal. Service has always been good and so is the food. Always a good selection

Whats with all the negative reviews?! I have been a regular customer here and have witnessed the change of ownerships. What is the big deal? The food is still delicious with slightly changed but improved flavours, but isn't that normal? Food was cooked to order and delicious. Yes table cloths, finger bowls, folded napkins have gone but what is the... More

We visited Chopsticks for lunch. We had originally attempted to go along for the "all you can eat" the previous evening, but unfortunately the restaurant was full. After driving all the way over, we were greeted with an abrupt "No, sorry!" and were turned away. Upon arriving the following day for lunch, we were shown to a seat in the... More

We have used this restaurant for special occasions, the odd lunch and takeaways for years. It has now changed hands and I can honestly say it was the worse Chinese we have ever had. The spring onions served with the crispy duck were mouldy, and when they were replaced the duck was cold. The main courses were tasteless and the... More

They have a set price for eat as much as you can so value wise it is a bargain but the flavours are not there. Quite bland and staff could do with being a little happier. Look miserable a lot of the time

Really not impressed. The food was tasty but make no mistake this IS NOT eat as much as you like buffet as is claims. You are restricted. Very restricted. The portions are very small and your controlled in what you have. For instance, 3 main meals between 2 people. which may be OK if they were big sizes. They are... More

I don't know if this has changed hands but the whole visit was a disaster, the cokes ordered to drink were flat, the service was appalling no smiles no chatting, we ordered starters the spare ribs were fatty and had loads of bones in them the other starters were tasteless and lukewarm, my husband ordered sizzling beef they delivered beef...
