“good food but place a little congested”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

we went on a Thursday at about 7. the buffet is well laid out and there is plenty of choice. the food was cooked nicely and they refill the containers regularly. we found a table in the corner and the staff were very friendly and helpful. by 8 o'clock the. place was packed and it became a little rushed. this place is popular with families and there were a lot of kids. if you are looking for a nice quiet meal where you can chat etc, this is not the place for you. however if you are looking for a wholesome, homemade meal with plenty of choice and at a very reasonable price of 8.99 then this is well worth a try. I would go there again as the starters of fried fish and chicken kebabs were delicious.

“Please stay AWAY!”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

We had booked over 3 weeks before and were told on the day that they couldn't "guarantee" a table for us and that we may have to sit on the floor. The place was in utter chaos, food was unpalletable and service was the worst we have experienced anywhere. Please do not waste you money or time. Keep away!!!

“Horrible experience..”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Booked our seats a week ago and Went there with family and friends. There a/c were not working and the management
Was not courteous enough to compensate customers. Some of the employes were very rude. Place was over crowded. Completely non professional environment and attitude. Their cutlery was not clean. We have to find clean glass and plates. Place was so hot and noisy. Kids get very upset. Some of the friends have to leave the site without food.
