Restaurant is located on the main street of China town. Basically, It is a open buffet with unlimited food. Staff is so friendly but can barely speak English. It is a self service buffet so you choose whatever you want. Quantity vs Quality. Foods are average, I cant say that anything was so special. Only problem is having only one dish for dessert which was jelly pudding.

Friendly staff and great service. Do not expect English waitering though, they express their hospitality here differently. Reliable dim sum and Cantonese dishes at reasonable prices.

Ordered Peking duck and pancakes and was pleasantly surprised with generous serving of pancakes. Ordered scallop for main and was very disappointed to be served a very fishy, sliced “scallop” didn’t finish it very disappointed.

But if you expect European service and cleanliness - this is not for you, you will be disappointed.
This is a quick and dirty typical Chinese restaurant with a huge choice of dishes and good for that reason.
The place brings back the flavours and smells of the restaurants outside on busy Chineese street markets.
The service is efficient but not very friendly and most staff don't speak English, but menu with pictures of every dish and and title in Chinese and English so it's easy for you to order if you do not speak Chinese.
The food was delicious, it all came piping hot and all good sized portions, the dim sum selection was very good, I loved the roast duck (no worse than its Chinese relatives).

Made my friend sit on floor. When i pulled in my chair it was sticky. Water under buffet was cloudy with skin on top. Went to grab a plate and covered in sauce. Food had a metallic taste and was burnt. Found skin and antenna of shrimp in my sweet and sour chicken. I am deathly allergic to shrimp so couldn’t eat it. Do not go here, although maybe not the worst place ever, i’m sure Hell is worse, although at least the food would be hotter.
Having to pay for water (besides breaking the law) was awful but necessary as the food was as salty as the caspian sea.
Do not come here unless you like spending hours on the toilet. Only eaten 15 minutes ago and am feeling tummy cramps, looks like i have a long evening ahead
