This restaurant was a little bit expensive, for it's quality.

Hors d'oeuvres seemed like standard frozen fast food.

Bar staff were slow to serve tables.

Main courses were wide-ranging but chicken was not of the highest quality (slightly hard,
in most dishes). Prawn was also not the best.

Deserts, including some interesting cheesecakes were quite good.

Went here with my mum as we wanted different foods!!! We went on a Sunday lunchtime & it was packed. We waited for about 10 minutes to be seated. Food choices were good & you could choose anything at any time to make the oddest combinations e.g. green Thai curry, with Bombay potato, risotto & topped off with a Yorkie pud (yes, one of my party did actually come back with this on their plate)!!!! As you can guess they had all tastes – oriental, Chinese, Indian, Italian etc.
Negatives - There is less choice during the lunchtime services and the full options are only served at night times. It is cheaper at lunchtime though to reflect this. It was also so busy it reminded me of a school canteen. Not a very romantic setting!!!
Good points – good choice of food & it was replenished regularly. Good if you’re with people who want different foods to you - a bit like being all inclusive on holiday as you’ll always find something you’ll like. Quite noisy but that’s to be expected & for me, it was a quick fix. Mind you – there were people there who went up so many times to get more food, they probably won’t eat for the rest of the week.
Good idea for ‘picky’ eaters & I would eat here again

Went here on a Saturday with family friends in a very big group about 35 people table not ready when we arrived but not a long wait 10 mins very cramped as previous reviews have mentioned price on Saturday £14.99 cheaper during week food various choices serve yourself this is a bit better than some of this kind of restaurant that I have been in before but the food layout is not very organised and you could miss something because its not where you think it might be. Food quality not bad cooked well reasonably hot plastic plates .Lots of waiting staff very efficient bar a bit pricey but ok . So food of different cultures all one place very glitzy environment give it a go i think its worth a try.
