Took partner here (Bournemouth) for birthday treat. Amazed at size of venue & choice of food, however were kept waiting for rice dishes. Also found the music too loud. Ideal venue for children to eat as has plain food eg chips, nuggets etc.

This has to be currently THE best 'buffet' type restaurant in the Bournemouth / Poole / Christchurch area. You cant go wrong with what they have on offer as they cater for all tastes with various Far Eastern / Asian sub continent dishes.......and for the slightly less adventurous they also have more Western / European type food, so there is always something for everyone.

The staff are attentive and keep the food hall clean and tidy throughout whichever sitting you decide to choose. The Sushi dishes are great as is are the live cooking points (Which includes a Teppanyaki bar), you could also re-live a childhood dream and go all out on the sweets section - BE WARNED THOUGH - Your eyes are bigger than your belly!!

The food is tasty, in fact very tasty so you need to work out a strategy on how to get maximum choice and flavours before you burst in a Monty Python Mr Creosote style.

The drink prices are also fairly reasonable for the center of town and have the average range to choose from.

Best advice for either sitting i.e - afternoon or evening is to get a table early on or at least 1 hour before the end of service as the dishes are naturally allowed to run down and you could miss out on some of the more popular foods. However, the evening sittings (especially Fri / Sat) get very busy so always best to book either by phone or email to be sure of not standing around in the foyer area.

Note that as this is popular at the weekends you do occasionally get stag and hen nights grabbing a bite to eat before hitting the town but i've never known it to get too loud or rowdy and as there are so many staff im sure they would be ushered towards the doormen very quickly.

well i have been to days a few times now, it is what it is, its an all you can eat for 8 quid lunch, 15 quit at night time, i am quite fussy and i have found things i like with no trouble at all , but i do go to each section and take little bits at a time so you can taste what you are eating , at the weekend we called in for lunch it was just fine and dandy .we saw people with food piled up it was like the slop bin on a plate ... how can they taste it ?????? the staff cleared plates as we used then no worries i saw them filling things as they emptied .......its a self serve cheap restaurant .

I agree with the previous reviewers comments. My wife I also went on that same evening. Excellent choice of food, plentiful and we were expressed by the standard of quality. I would add that be prepared for a bit of a of a smash and grab culture on a bad all inclusive holiday in Benidorm. Be well advised to go early, we arrived at 6.30pm and left at 8pm(2hr time limit) queing out of the door. Great value for money.
