“Saturday night family gathering: packed out but great night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013

Booked a table for family gathering : 11 of us. The place was rammed so good job we did book.
Attentive service and the huge food and drinks order was taken accurately. Starters came out fast, as did drinks. Staff explained 30 mins delay to main course due to huge pressure on kitchen: all cooked fresh. When the mains arrived they just kept on coming for the rest of the night. All enjoyed by all and we had a great night and total bill including about 3 drinks each was £150. Superb value
Wouldn't go anywhere else for Chinese in Cov and judging by how packed it was the word has got around!

“Excellent choice and value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Best buffet style Chinese around (no queuing though - just order off the extensive menu), . Don't be put off by the' not so glamorous' surroundings, this restaurant serves excellent food with a huge choice of main courses. Just wish we could have managed to eat more ! Amazing value for money also, go in a big group to take advantage of trying lots of dishes. Will definitely be visiting again.

“Best buffet around”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

A buffet with a difference. No queuing so that's a bonus. You can order what you like as many times as you like and they bring it to your table. Everything we had was lovely. We went here when it wasn't a buffet and were dissaponted to arrive and see it had changed but it was all delicious.
Highly recommend

“Best Chinese Food in Coventry. A great find. Will return!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

Used to drink here years ago when it was The Plough over the road from Rolls Royce.
Now it is a Chinese restaurant just off the ring road between Cov Uni, Whitefriars Abbey and the Techno Centre. Parking was easy in the car park at the front of the building.
Very good, attentive service, £13.95 set all you can eat off a large a la carte menu.
All food freshly cooked, some cut off the bone at table, fast service. They take cards.
We were amazed. The food is clearly well above the quality of buffets such as Wing Wah or Dragon Pheonix and probably the best Chinese food I have had outside London. Many of the customers were Chinese students from the Uni over the road.
Massive inside as it was large pub. We will definitely return with the family no we have found it!

“Very nice food and always HOT!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

Nice food, nice service and clean and tidy unlike the school dinner buffet on the A45. We have been twice recently and loved the variety of food. Give it a try you will enjoy!!
