“Great Restaurant”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

I don't normally like restaurants that offer "buffet style" because I find the food is of variable quality and tasteless.

Well this restaurant is the exception.

The service was excellent, we were quickly seated by the window and drinks brought to our table. We then went up to choose from the buffet, we had wide and varied choice from Chinese, Thai or Indian food..

The food was very hot and extremely tasty, the Thai Green Curry was superb,.

We all had a great evening, we will definitely be coming back. Thank you.

Dear reviewer we are very disappointed that out of over 40 dishes you thought the choice was limited and not to your liking. We do however offer an A La Carte menu which may offer some thing to your to your liking. We have made a note of the food temperature on the buffet. Many thanks for your feed back.

“all you can eat!”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

This restaurant serves a buffet of Indian, Chinese, Thai food every night. It is regularly topped up and the food is always fresh. You can go back regularly and try new things and there are always old favourites as well. I always enjoy the food. It is fresh and well cooked, with a good range of tastes to suit all paIates. I think the value depends on how hungry you are: if you have a very good appetite then I think it very good value. There is a pleasant atmosphere and the staff are very helpful and polite.

“Good food and atmosphere”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Food very tasty and plenty of choices. We went on a Saturday night and whilst it was very busy, the food was constantly being topped up. A nice buzz about the place. Staff were friendly. Desserts were particularly of a high standard and good choice.

“OK”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

The staff are friendly, and the atmosphere and decor are pleasant. The place is clean and the buffet always well stocked. It's OK, but I have to say, I find the food very bland - but my kids love it. The desserts are good too.

Many thanks for your kind feedback, it is only through these feedback that we can improve ourselves. We were commented on being a little to spicy in the past hence we had to turn it down a little. Whilst we cater for a wide number of guests we are also very keen to look after those with spicier pallet so next time you visit please ask a member of the staff to make you something a little spicier. We would very happy to do that at no extra charge to you. So see you soon
