The place looked a complete mess, and at that point we should've just left. However, we gave it a shot because we were hungry. Food wasn't appealing and didn't look fresh and also looked congealed. The crispy duck, wasn't crispy, it was dry and the hoisin sauce was in some grimy bottle. I didn't say anything as it doesn't seem... More

We sometimes go to this restaurant and find the food quite good and varied but the only problem is that the plates are cold (which cools your food) and some of the dishes that are under the heat lights are barely warm. This could be rectified as I really dislike eating COLD food. 'My Shanghai, please keep yr food hotter... More

Prompt Service, good choice of Asian or traditional British Sunday Lunch. Staff polite & helpful. Easy to locate & plenty of car parking. Reasonable prices considering you can eat as much or as little as you wish.

Food, decoration, cleanliness, staff etc all very average. Price is a little steep for this level of average.

You can pay for your trip by overdosing on duck and pancakes. The choice is pretty good. The quality is OK. Drinks are reasonable. Some of the Japanese food is unrecognisable as such and I was mightily disappointed. Mind, the last time I had Teppanyaki, I was in Nagano Prefecture so perhaps my standards are too high. Like others, I... More

Masses and masses of food for a lot of customers... not best quality not the worst.. the place is clean.. staff are very nice.. reception is very good.. not my typical restaurant I go to.. not somewhere you go for a romantic meal or somewhere to take someone special... it's a place where a lot of fat people go to...

My family and I have been to this place lots of times, the food is delicious, hot and plentiful, Ive got to be honest and say Im not too keen on some of the staff they parade around with a miserable face and are not very welcoming, watching you all of the time, some were ok though.

Yes it's predictable, the meals rarely change but there's plenty of choice and it's definitely one of the better Chinese buffets. Clean and tidy, it gets busy at weekends so book to avoid disappointment. I would happily eat nothing other than the duck and pancakes and I love the battered King Prawn. Definitely value for money
