“A good eat all you can restaurant”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

One of the better eat all you can restaurants as the food is cooked as you order, and is not sitting about on hot plates. Good variety of food and friendly service.

“Very poor service left standing at the door for 40 mins not even to be greeted having booked a table.”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

Poor service. Even when we booked a table we still were left standing at the door for 40 mins and not even greeted.

“Terrible service”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

Party of 15 booked for 8 asked to wait outside in the cold for over half an hour. Took at least another half an hour once seated for drink. Food arrived sporadically.

“Worst service I've ever received in a restaurant”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

Booked a table for 8pm and didn't get a table for 45 minutes after booking time. Drinks came after half an hour of being seated and after some of the food - staff took some orders but not others, and were rude and dismissive. Manager seems to have no idea what she's doing!

“Very good for hungry people...”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

'All you can eat' for £15.50 (slightly more at weekends) is what is offered, and that's exactly what you get. There is a caveat that any dishes not consumed will be charged additionally, but this doesn't apply if the food is partially eaten. The quality of the food is good without being excellent, although I did think the prawn crackers had a strange taste.

For £31, we had prawn crackers, the or'deuvres for two, a quarter of duck with an enormous number of pancakes, three meat/fish dishes, noodles and fried vegetables. Desserts are available at extra cost.

I've read the recent negative reviews on this restaurant and I don't understand them. The service was good without being over the top, and the decorative order of the restaurant is again good. What do people expect for this price?
