Phoned up and they managed to squeeze us in after only booking 30 minutes before arrival. Very busy but luckily staff managed to move us anyways as at first we ended up next to a very noisy hen party. Not the hens fault its just the acoustics of the room so if there is a large party, ask to be sat in the quieter area overlooking the canal.

Food was fab and again, even though its a buffet, food was cooked fresh to order. Would really recommend the prawn toast and curry samosas but the duck parcels are very oily. Prices have been raised recently though so watch this.

If going, definitely go Friday or Sat for the buffet as this is much better value for money. If going midweek and ordering from the main menu, this is still very expensive and not good value. As long as they don't raise the prices of the buffet further, this will continue to be one of our fave places to eat out.

The best Chinese I have experienced. Extensive menu and tastes amazing. The all you can eat menu was great, each course is cooked freshly and brought to your table separately and at any point you can order more, not like these buffet restaurants, you are given a menu and order whatever you like from it. Not sure what the previous reviewer meant by buffet, they don't do buffet at this restaurant and the price is more than reasonable for the quality and freshness if the food. Will definitely be back.

Too much cost for what it is. Basic Buffet is £19.

£12 should be what they charge as that is fair.

Will not come again

Went here after Chester races, it was heaving. The starters are not the best and main courses had quite a bit of fat contents within the dish. Yes they were busy the manager was a pleasant.
At £22.90 each there is no way I would return........
