We came here last year while on holiday. Lovely food English for my fussy son. Plenty of Chinese variety to chooses from and also some nice Indian curries. Good value for money we came at lunch time, it cost £45 for 6 of us. This included starters, main and pudding. Large choice of dishes with plenty of meat in them.... More

Nice view over the boating lake, the food was average, though if your after a Chinese all you can eat then I'd recommend. We enjoyed ourselves and it wasn't overly priced. We will go again in the future

Excellent variety for families. Very reasonably priced. Only disappointment was that there was no banana fritters.

Popped in for a bite to eat and was pretty busy. We got served fast and food was hot, also it was being topped up quickly. I would recommend for family's groups and even for solo visits. The view from the boating lake is great too a must try place!

I usually love going to oriental express and the staff are always nice and polite. And i also notice that they always keep foods and SOUPS stocked up nicely so that you don't see the bottom of the tray. On my visit there with my boss i strolled over to the soup section and there was no soup the bowls/... More

Gorge yourself on cheap, poor quality nasty tasting food, surrounded by dirty tables, floor, cutlery, plates and seats. Uninterested staff who are probably poorly paid. What more is there to say.
