A buffet restaurant which had little food left when we visited, despite this being at only 8.15- ish on a Friday night. Individual dishes were cooked to compensate from a limited selection; these were rubbery, boiled (?) pieces of meat in Chinese sauces, yuk! On leaving I attempted to pay with a credit card, which the machine strangely wouldn't process, despite never before having had a problem. We were hurriedly signposted to the nearest cashpoint to pay by cash, but we rustled up enough to pay without this being necessary. On paying however no receipt was given....Hmm, not the best and not recommended.

We go here once a month when going shopping to Lincoln, please ignore all bad reviews cause they are all clearly deluded, food is really good with a great selection, staff very helpful, food hot. Some reviews on here are just daft, where can u eat as much chinese as u want for £9. We will still continue to eat here every month

First time dining here and I am in no rush to go back. My boyfriend and I went in the evening at around 6pm - we were seated straight away which was great but the staff weren't very welcoming at all. There was quite a large choice but the quality of the food was poor and you could tell some of the dishes had been sitting there for a while! Some dishes were lukewarm, the duck and chicken for the pancakes were so dry and sharp on your throat it was unbelievable. For £13 each I thought it was a huge disappointment. Would recommend people to go elsewhere.

Have been here often, but last time I came in the food was terrible, very poor choice and some of it tasted burnt. Lots of sausage, chips etc so I guess catering more for families on a Saturday lunchtime, but I will avoid it for a while.

The food was OK but nothing to write home about. The whole experience was diminished by staff using cleaning equipment on blinds and fittings in the restaurant while people were eating. As food was in open trays the food could very well become contaminated by dust or cleaning fluids, which is NOT an acceptable risk.
As a couple that run a food business ourselves we feel that cleaning should never be carried out around exposed food stuffs.
