Now called Full House not Buffet Island.
I'd previously visited about 18 months ago when it was Buffet Island and had a nice visit so decided to visit again as Days were closed for refurbishment.
The format has changed to a menu buffet style and not a help yourself style buffet. Pay attention to the menu if you are ordering on the menu buffet night as there are strict rules on the front page, for instance you can order as much starter as you want but once you have a main you can't return to starters, you can't have your main unless you eat all your starters (which is fair enough if I were 7 years old and eating at my grandma's) and you may incurr a charge if you waste food.
The starters we had were super tasty, though a little oily but that's how I like my greasy Chinese food. Recommend the seaweed and prawn toast.
For main I had pork fried rice but were so full from gorging on starters I didn't fancy much else. Got an odd look from the waiter for ordering just a rice dish though.
For a Saturday night the place was packed to the rafters with Chinese students, so must be a sign the food is at least authentic. Cost us £38 for two people with a large coke each, so I would say middle market for expense.
Staff are nice, friendly and welcoming but we were sat in the condensation window with a mouldy ceiling above us which really was off putting.
Overall maybe two and a half stars.
