Nice simple Chinese buffet the dumplings are fab the rest is just simple nothing fancy, a little expensive at £14.99 when the puddings are from Iceland and are served frozen but it's ok.

If a standard 'All you can eat' buffet is what you are after then this is just as good a place as any other. The food is broadly in line with similar chinese buffets.
I wouldn't say it is anything exceptional - but rather middle of the road.

We saw kitchen staff take boxes of Iceland frozen cakes and Chinese food, spring rolls ect, through the restaurant and into the kitchen. At 14.99 this is extremely expensive for what is essentially Iceland food. We were also told upon entering that we had a 1 hour time limit to eat our food and get out, which isn't ideal if your a large group of friends celebrating a birthday or work night out.

I am not surprised to learn they scored extremely badly on their last visit from food hygiene officers and were heavily fined. Dirty place. Would not eat there again.

I love Chinese food, it has to be pretty bad for me not to eat it but this place was just awful. Tough meat, dry over cooked rice and very dubious hygiene. Stay away.

This restaurant is just outside John Lewis at High Cross Center, Leicester. Great location amongst several eateries. Good choice and friendly attentive staff. Unneeded plates and glasses removed promptly which keeps table clear and conversation moving on. Variety is not as wide as the Chinese in Nottingham. We will continue going back due to food, environment and location.
