“Kinda like being on a 3* all-inclusive”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

I went recently with a friend on a Groupon deal as we work nearby.
There's a big range of foods from all-over and it's great if you're out with a group who all like different things, or for people like me who like to try a bit of everything. Good salad range, lots of thai and Indian curries, Chinese food, and you can request a fresh stir fry with your choice of ingredients etc. Whether you like your food spicy or not, there's a bit of pretty much everything.

Yes the food isn't the best quality and isn't always the temperature you'd hope for, but you do get to pick what you want and how much of anything you want. Service is good and the staff are generally quick to clear your plates.

tip: Try to avoid it during school holidays as there are often queues waiting to get in.

“Plenty of choice and all you can eat.”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

Quite impressed by the wide variety of food on offer. I ate entirely from the live buffets where you stand and watch your food being cooked exactly the way you want. Steered clear of the food in the warming dishes as I wasn't sure how long it had been standing. The salad bar was quite extensive but everything was uncovered and unrefrigerated. not sure how healthy that is? But as I said stick to the live buffet and you will have a great evening. I would go back again.

“Half and Half”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

Very mixed review on this. Went in at 4pm and before we were even greeted we were told we had to leave by 5.30pm for them to set up for dinner. What a way to start!

Compared to other buffet restaurants in the nearby vicinity this one was international in terms of Indian, Chinese, bit of English, French and Italian.

The presentation on the whole and food being cooked in front of you was acceptable however the Chinese selection seemed a bit forlorn. You could have a Chinese stir fry done in front of you and we found that the chef put too much msg, salt and garlic in for our liking.

However on the whole, the meat in the various dishes were of a good size and juicy and especially in the indian curries were nicely marinated and tender.

The other reason why we decided to go in was that the desert's looked appealing however even an hour before change of shift the selection got smaller and smaller and were not being replaced. My favourite always is apple crumble and custard, nice but lukewarm. The presentation of food on the whole needs to be regularly checked and topped up even if shift change is an hour away.

Also the salad island looked like it seen batter day's.

The waiting staff all looked unhappy and not one had a smiling face. Would we come back? Erm....No.

My other concern were that the toilets needed to be check on a more regular basis.

My tip would be to go to their website and go to the offers section and play their game by submitting your email address and click on the cloche's. We got a 10% discount on the food and a free drink which was a glass of flat coke, which would have cost £2.50 i believe.

“Excellent cuisine”
Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

I've been to a few different buffet places before but this place jumps right to the top of the list. Telling the chef to make you something personally is a nice touch alongside a vast amount of different foods from all around the world. They also offer loyalty cards just like Nandos does where as to more you visit the more you get off your total bill until you dine for free.

Overall I most definitely be visiting again, throughly enjoyed my 1st visit there.
