I love the food, it is such good value for money. Chinese food is one of my favorites and I think buffet city is the best place to have it in Exeter. Obviously it isn't in the same league as places in China town in London or some of the ace Chinese's I've had in Birmingham but I live in Exeter and its the best one here. Chicken Satay is ace and the dessert selection is surprisingly large for a chinese restaurant including a chocolate fountain and ice cream machine. My only two faults are bad service (but you get over that cause its a buffet so its only annoying getting drinks) and the tables are all ridiculously close together that you feel like your eating with the total strangers on the next table. For such a huge place its a shame they do that but its clearly for money reasons - more tables, more people eating, more money. Shame though. The waiters/waitresses move around so quickly and really hate making eye contact. They try to serve you for as little time as possible like its uncomfortable talking to you. It's near impossible to order another drink unless you run after someone and they are rarely friendly. It's actually the worst service I've ever had in a restaurant but the Chinese buffet down the road is the same thing so because I love the food, and the cost is good I just try and ignore the negatives. When there's little choice for Chinese food in Exeter and when you love the food just have to either not go or put up with it. The service doesn't ruin my mood, so I still love going with friends and family. I have never been charged for food waste either if you leave food, its only for people who stupidly pile their plate sky high to save the amount of times they go up and leave a lot of it. I would recommend going, I go with family and friends, and its great for big groups.
