Nice friendly staff. Lovely to see a smiling face when you walk in a place!
Good food. Prawns amazing.
Clean seating and food area. Good service no plates piling up.
Fresh strawberries and grapes with my choc fudge pudding. Yum!

Enjoyed it!

The only reason I didn't give excellent was because I'm feeling really fat for eating too much :)

Have only visited this restaurant once before not long after they first opened, as wasn't a fan of their other restaurant in Erdington. This restaurant is very spacious, plenty of parking and is furnished nicely. Nice bright restaurant, most of the staff are very friendly. Good variety of food and it was all served hot. Plenty of choice for a Sunday evening and even traditional sunday lunch available as well as sushi and all the traditional chinese food. Lovely deserts and plenty for children to enjoy too. Found it a little pricey compared to other buffets I use, especially for myself and a young child aged 4, so not somewhere I would frequent very often but be happy to visit again.

When this place first opened we loved it, fantastic food and staff (but rather expensive so didnt visit often).

As it had been about a year since we last visited we decided to go at on a Saturday lunch time (about 2pm).

The standard of food was poor and was mostly empty with what looked to be topped up with further scraps.

It didnt help I had to sit next to a table of people who smelt of stale piss (not the fault of the restaurants of course)

Staff not to friendly or bothered about anything,

Quite dissapointed, recently discovered another buffet restaurant which is fantastic so will be going there from now on.

We visited this restaurant on a Saturday evening it was quiet for a Saturday night and we found the staff lovely ,polite and our empty places were removed after we had all finished our food . I have a favourite buffet restaurant in bilston which we frequently visit but buffet island is much better . The food was tastier and there was more variety and lovely and hot I would definitely recommend and return to this restruant .
