“A previous favorite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

I've been to Kingdom several times before and have always found the food to be of good quality, though the last couple of times some of the food disappointed, the selection of deserts on offer is one of the reasons I go back. I prefer the lunch buffet over the evening buffet as the price is very good and the additional food on an evening is nice but not enough to justify the price for me.

“Good Choice & Good Quality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

Turned up on New Years Eve with out a booking, the place was very busy, but got a table after around 5 mins wait.
There was a good choice of food and the quality of food was also good which isn't always the case in buffet restaurants.
Probably due to the mass of customers, some of the serving pans were missing or close to empty, but generally there was no shortage of food.
I would recommend for a casual value for money night out.

“Very Mediocre”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Went as part of a birthday celebration with a group before Xmas.
We were early arrivals from the party & suggested we went to the bar for a drink before the others arrived. BAD START, would you believe it - NO BEER!!!! - only lager and 3 on tap, disaster for a place of this size - not even a bottled beer.
Didn't get much better when meal started, some of the restaurant staff didn't seem to understand English - tried unsuccessfully to get some bread to go with soup. Later found some for hotdogs on American grill and tried one but stale.
No spoons left for deserts - asked staff who didn't seem to understand and sent me off somewhere where they didn't exist.
Certainly wouldn't choose to go there myself or recommend it.

“What A Disappointing Difference A Year Makes”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

Vistited here in December 2012 for a staff night out and everyone commented on the broad range and quality of dishes. What a difference a year makes.... visited again with colleagues at Christmas and will definately not be going back. The standard has dropped alarmingly and the quality of food is pretty poor.
Why do these places start off so well and then cut costs everywhere and lose trade???

“16th birthday epic fail”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

Booked a table for my sons 16th. The whole family attended. Upon arriving we were left to sand around for around 20 mins as table had not be allocated even tho this was pre booked in advance. Eventually led to a table and kind of just left there by staff. As we had not been before, we were unsure how things worked. After trying to find help from staff for 20 mins we had to ask a cleaner for help. Seems other staff were to busy walking round eating. Hmmm. Expected better food quality. Some dishes were not great. I did not find the signs that stroon the place about a food wastage policy very tactfull at all. I understand reasoning for this, but these signs are everywhere You look. My 10 yr old was eating food he disliked as he was worried we may have to pay extra for anything left. There was a bigger party in there that night who seemed to get so much attention. Our group didn't even get so much as a thank you or a mint upon leaving from door staff. Spent over £200 even an i hope you enjoyed your meal would have been nice. Food not great. Some of our party only had chips and curry sauce not great for the money that was spent. Next time. Stay home and order in. Easily get more for your money. We wont be going back and feel a reajustment on the total bill would have made up for the treatment we recived. This did not happen as we could not find anyone to talk to about this matter other than the cleaner. Also ladies toilets had no toilet tissue all night. Just a hint. Take your own. What was supposed to be a great evening turned out to be memorable for different Reasons. Ie bad service. Visited on 2 jan @
