“First Meal at Buffet Style Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

I liked the food, the setting and service. My daughter ate here some days earlier. It was a birthday meal with friends: they all loved the food and atmosphere.

I found the staff very helpful, courteous and polite. The food was varied: Asian, some Pizza and European but I stuck to the Asian cuisine. I have to state the food was very tasty indeed and the coconut rice was excellent...light and fluffy. Some of the tureens needed to be replenished but overall, this was an excellent experience.

A bit pricey as I had just the one main course but I noted others were having a bit more, so maybe it is fair charge. This is the only reason not to give five stars.

Toilets were so clean - spotless.

Enjoy eating here and take your time - you will enjoy food and atmosphere.

“Yum Yum Yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

We have now been to this restaurant for the 5th time. It is just wonderful. There is a great range of food and it is all freshly prepared - you can even choose your own ingrediants and a chef will cook them fresh for you in front of you adding just what you when it comes to spicy heat! The staff are all polite and welcoming and do not at anytime harrass you. I would say it is one of the best buffet restaurants I have ever been to, so much so that we can't keep away and are going again next week with friends.

“"The best in Leicester”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

Yesterday we went to Chef & Spice, the venue is absolutely wonderful and it is perfect. I take my hats off to the creator. The menu is extensive with plenty of excellent choices. The food was amazing, also they cook stir fry fresh from the ingredients you choose. The deserts were a huge hit. The staff were incredibly polite making recommendations that were spot on. The choice and quality of the food is fabulous, everyone catered for. The interior is really beautiful and I certainly did not see any venue like this before and the price is so reasonable. Loved it and will be back very soon
