For the money, I would say its average. Yoh get what you pay for, it never looks clean, tablets always look messy. It was alright, neither here or there.

This used to be my favourite chinese buffet, but in recent years , it seems to have declined dramatically! The overall eating experience is awful, it's like being in a school canteen , the food is okay but areas around it look dirty. The staff don't seem to be interested in there customers, and the price you pay for this... More

Haven't been for a while and decided we would go before going to the cinema. Paid for 2 but before I even finished getting my money out the lady snatched the money out of my hand. No please no thanks or anything. It was a good job we have been before so we knew what we was doing as she... More

Honestly I've eaten at some dodgy places working all over but this place is horrific. Went in, no welcome from staff wasn't overly busy. She barked "what drinks do you want" and just demanded the money and to sit where we wanted and walked off. Horrible staff. Food was absolutely shocking. It tasted left overs from a sub standard Chinese... More

Reasonably priced fast paced restaurant. Go in to fill up on various food, with numerous choices. Some of the dishes can be similar but it isn't a la carte. Ideal for when you have a large appetite due to all the fresh sea air. Busy and staff rush round clearing away plates and serving drinks ideal for groups, families but... More

We have occasionally used this fast food outlet. It is very busy but sometimes the replenishing of the food does not keep up. It is used by families. Unfortunately the outside space is getting very tired and could do with some tender loving care to make it more attractive to visitors.

This is all you can eat & there's lots to choice from. You can have ice cream as well (included). It's also very cheap.

Went in for a Sunday tea and was quite shocked how miserable every member of staff was. We went to pay before being seated and was growled at "sit on any table", mmmmm I thought. We found a table and went to get some food, looking around the serving area it was really quite dirty, food all over and nearly... More

Visited today with my family, now I will admit this isn't the best place I have visited but it's definitely up there. The food is very tasty not bland like some all you can eats, there is also a very large choice of food including Indian which is a nice addition. The ice cream is also tasty with the nice... More
