Food is average but the place is scruffy. Dirty floor skirtings and ceiling. Staff friendly and reasonably priced

We've been here a lot of times,and every time we go we say we're not going again, because of all the times we've been we've probably only had 3 good meals.We can't understand why they still let people in to eat, when more than half of the food containers are nearly empty.So eat as much as you can !!! Is... More

Food ok. Place clean, staff polite. You get a lot of children left to their own devices getting their food with no supervision. Don't think this should be allowed. Personally I think it's dangerous when there is hot food about. Won't go back any time soon.

Ate here tonight, party of 6. We have visited regularly over the years & have always enjoyed the food. I think that tonight may be our last visit. There were flies in the entrance, the toilets are worn out, not particularly clean & only 1 handryer in the ladies. The table we were at had loose trim which kept catching... More

Thought this would be as good as Wings in Hull, very disappointed. Tiny selection, overcooked and wierd tasting noodles, rather shabby interior.

Ate here with my husband earlier this week and we were both really disappointed. It's a self service restaurant and you pay at the entrance and are given your drinks to take them to your table, the staff were pleasant enough but didn't make any attempts to help us find a table with room for my little boys pram. There... More

I've been here a few times in the past and don't really rate this place whatsoever. I much prefer to go over the bridge and go to Wings in Hull. On the many times I have been here, the staff have been rude and not interested in the customers. The only thing the manager is interested in is hurrying people... More

Possibly one of the worst 'dining' experiences I have ever had. The standard of food is quite frankly disgusting. The beef is like steak Canadian, and the chicken is rubbery. As for the restaurant, it's run down and dirty. In fact it's like a cattle market. What an absolute waste of money. KFC or McDonalds would have been better, and... More

Went here with my 18month old son who loved it. Absolutely gorgeous better than any of our local Chinese and Indian restaurants. Without a doubt will return
