Sooo it took me a while to find this restaurant on trip advisor because although in the same location, I think the restaurant has changed owners since 'buffet v' because the outside has a different front and the pictures of the food looks different now.
Anyway.. I wouldn't waste your money going here. It is very cheap; £6.90 per person and all you can eat but when 80% of the food isn't edible, you're better off getting Mcdonalds or going to Zizzi's with a voucher.
The meat was awful, I had to spit out my sweet and sour chicken because it just didn't have the texture of chicken, it was more like soft fat. Everything was just bad, just don't attempt going here.

the best thing for me about this was that the food was not greasy and poorly cooked like many buffets, also I was impressed with the range of dishes on offer including various savoury noodle and 'fake meat' dishes and also deserts including fresh fruit salads

while the fake meat wont appeal to all it was well done and provided extra texture to the dishes, also the veg had some bite and was not overcooked

We recently dined at Buffet V for the first time and found it quite reasonable although nothing spectacular. The location is great being right on New Oxford Street making it easy to find (near the corner of Stedham Place).

For 6.50 you can eat as much as you want from the buffet including entrees, salads, hot dishes and dessert which is pretty good value.

There was a good range of vegan dishes to choose from although most of them featured fake meat so if you're not into fake meats this restaurant probably won't appeal to you. We dined around 1:00pm on the weekend and although the restaurant was busy, we found many of the 'hot' dishes were only just lukewarm or even cold.

The staff were super friendly and helpful, the juices are freshly squeezed and all the salads and fruit appeared fresh.

Overall, we were happy with our meal we just hope that next time the hot food is fresher and hotter.

In this buffet first you get a warm welcome from stuff and then they take you to the best table. The restaurant is all you can eat buffet stile, so there is no limitation. If you would like to take food with you and eat somewhere else, you get little plastic dish in which you put it. This will cost you 3.50 pounds or 4.50 pounds if you take a bit bigger dish. This is really cheep but dish is adequately small and of course you can put food in it just once. Than if you decide to sit there in restaurant where the climate is very warm and cosy, lunch will cost you 5,50 pounds. Beside that you also have to pay around 70 pence for service. You can stuff your plate for as many times as you want. Meals on Sundays and every day in the evenings cost 6.50 pounds and same you have to pay little bit for service. Food is freshly prepared and very tasty. You can find there in buffet veg chow mein, veg curry rice, crispy soya, duck, black beans soya chicken, sweet & sour veg chicken, spiced aubergines, special fried rice, singapore noodles, lemon grass pot, spring rolls, dim sum, basil salad, lemon grass, seaweed, green curry & many more. I think the drink is not included, so it has to be paid separately.
I liked that food was fresh and crispy (not overcooked). Stuff can get a bit annoying with always wanting to serve you. But all in all eating there was delicious!
