“Decent Value”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

Not many dishes available.

Chips for the Kids - great idea.

And the Whippy Ice Cream is excellent!

We sat in the window and it was awkward to get out to the food dishes.

The dishes were very shallow - which means they are re-filled quite quickly ... so, piping hot food.

They ran out of forks twice while we were there - we had to ask both times for new forks ..... however, look under the food tables and you will see all the cutlery - help yourself!

“AVOID.”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

Went there on a Thursday night with the other half; staff were rude, & kept wandering about making me feel really uncomfortable. The toilets are so close to the kitchen, and takes ages to get to, but anyways, don't wanna sound horrible, but both of us was literally on the toilet for pass 2 days, and now it's Saturday feeling awfully sick.
It's a no go.. Wouldn't advice anyone to go there unless you want pretty much food poisoning.

“Good eat out”
Reviewed November 1, 2012 via mobile

We went here last night, it was a nice eat out the food was fresh andit was quite busy but plenty of tables. The price was reasonable and there was a medium selection of food. The service was good and was greated by a waitress who took our drink order. A nice place to eat would come here again.

“Not very appetising”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

We went on a Monday night eat as much as you can buffet for £12.95, £3.00 for infants

The Restaurant was virtually empty and although there was a good selection of food, it was very dried up and not very appetising

Overall service was a bit OTT, several members of staff stood by your table watching you eat and removing your plate before you had finished

Would not recommend this restaurant
None of them seem to speak English and kept messing up the drinks orders
