Spacious buffet with an average food

Husband and I had meals here now and then. Food is not bad but I would say it's a bit pricey for the quality and the variety they offer.

Went in Feb with son planning to go here for lunch but it's closed down. Doesn't look like a refurbishment closure. All signs gone from the windows. It had gone downhill from when it first opened. Shame.

Have been a few times before but chairs uncomfortable and food OK. Went a few weeks ago in the lunch time and the chairs had been changed to more comfortable ones. Food was tastier and hotter. The containers contained smaller amounts but replenished more often. The food was much tastier and the staff were far more attentive. Would definitely go... More

This place should not be allowed to serve food, it's absolutely disgusting. Me and my family came out here to eat for a birthday and we were all very disappointed. There service was also terrible, as the staff members and management were so rude. The food was not fresh but actually tasted like it had been there a few days,... More

Went here with a friend and our two 3 year olds. On entering told the waitress the children wouldn't eat except for a couple of prawn crackers....she said that was fine they wouldn't be charged. The food was ok, nothing special, not much choice and lots of empty spaces at the food area where dishes weren't served. Drinks were poured... More

Good variety of dishes, some could have been a bit hotter. Enjoyed the atmosphere. Staff were attentive and cleared dishes regularly. Shame the chocolate fountain was broken but nice to see they had an alternative so we could still enjoy our dessert. Overall a lovely evening.

Bit slow on clearing tables and sweeping up dropped food but what we had was surprisingly good quality for an "all you can eat" Chinese. Would go again.

Me and my husband went for a quick lunch but the food was more than bad. Everything's seemed old, cooked and reheated several times. Nothing tasted nice, I've tried to eat something but after trying most of the dishes and desserts I felt ill leaving the restaurant. Will never go back there.
