We visited at 3pm on a Saturday Afternoon. The food was lovely. The service area is very clean and the choices are very good, there's something for everyone. For the price of £6.90 you can't beat it. The waitresses are attentive and friendly. I would recommend this place to anyone for the price and choice.

In some restaurants, they offer you a guide to highlight meals you can't have, and you just have to have what's available.

The beef was like a rubber sole, dumplings were like bouncy balls, the prawns had a chalky texture once bitten into, prawn crackers were stale and bendy and the carrot cake was like eating dry sand. Please remember... More

Everytime I have visited there it has... More

This is definitely the best chinese buffet in the Newcastle/North Tyneside area. Much better than any in China town! A lot of choice, well cooked. And kids seem to love helping themselves :) I haven't tried the Sunday Lunches yet, nut keen to try.

My friends and I went on the night time and it was very busy so I'd advise you to book first. There was a great selection of foods... something for everyone and it was all excellent.
