“Good food for the money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

Visited buffet island with a mate who recommended it from his previous visits.
Glad we went, the food from start to finish was good for the money they charge.

Great prawns from the salad section and thin cut beef in black pepper and soya sauce from the sushi to starters, lots of Chinese meat and fish dishes along with the freshly cooked stir fry for main and some great choc fudge cake, cooked to order pancakes and waffles for pud

If you've not visited, give it a try, there is nothing special about the decor or tableware. It's a place for family and friends, but not for a romantic meal with a loved one.

“Plenty of choice and good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

I went here for an early evening meal with a group of friends. The restaurant is large and soon filled but there was plenty of serving points so no one was waiting long to help themselves to the extensive buffet. A good fusion of Chinese/Japanese and English food nicely presented. Obviously a popular venue for birthdays (we heard Happy birthday to you at least half a dozen times) this is not the place for a quiet romantic meal. I have rated it 4 stars as it did get noisy.

“Very good value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

Vast selection to chose from! Help your self to starters, main course and dessert. Some of the dishes could have been a bit warmer as they could had been on display for sometime. Not a lot of service as it is all self service. Quality of the food was good.

“Chinese/Japanese fusion and 'English' food, buffet style, very tasty.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

A very good range of Chinese/Japanese buffet food including sushi and sashimi and teppenyaki grill. Plus English fare like chips and Turkey dinner. There is also a crepe stand, candy floss, range of desserts and a chocolate fountain.
Good value, advisable to book.
Lots of helpful waiters/waitresses who clear away empty plates and unwanted food in a speedy but polite fashion.
