“Crazy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

A lovely place - absolutely spoilt for choice. But the sheer number of people took the gloss off slightly. A bit too busy for my liking, and poor service from a sullen waitress who looked utterly miserable. Would possibly return at a lunchtime when it's cheaper.

“Good 2nd visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

Returned for a second time to sample lunch. We asked if we could see what was on offer before committing to eat there.

As before, the choices were fine and the food quality was good with plenty of variety, although it may fall short of the requirements of ardent "Indian", "Mexican" or "Chinese" buffs.

The desert section was extremely varied in fact we were spoilt for choice.

We still used the reduced lunch vouchers which arrived through the post, weeks ago meaning we paid £6.99 instead of the normal £7.99

The overall charge for two came to £21 which included two large beers.

We shall return.

“One time only”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

Went for lunch

always looks busy so decided to try - what a letdown

décor looks ok from outside - inside another matter

cheap looking tables and chairs - was stuck in a corner next to a very busy service area even though lots of tables elsewhere -

food very average to poor - buffet dining - for example the peri peri chicken no chicken just bones - tasteless

the idea is good but this is not the way to do it

will definitely not be going again

I called in today at 1615 to eat at the bazaar went to desk and was told by waitress that will be 13.99 each I said it was 7.99 till 5oclock but was told you had to be seated and finished my food by 5 to qualify for the special price this is a first for me
So I about turned and had a lovely meal in ninos upstairs who honoured there special lunches before 5 I didn't have to finish my food by 5 to get the special price I think I'll give the bazaar a miss from now on
