Bland, tasteless and just about everything watered down. The chinese curry sauce was so watered down it had no taste. Even the cocktails were obviously watered down. would not recomend and will not return.

Dear guest
thanks for your feedback .I feel sorry if something is not comes up on your expectation label. I am just wondering we have around 55 to 60 curry in our buffet and I am not very convinced how everything can be water down secondly if you do not like certain food or curry you have so many other things to choose like( Indian ,Chinese ,Italian ,Maxican ,Spanish,tandoor).thirdly all cocktails need to go very stick quality controll check before reaching to customer and all bartender are bound to follow standard recipy.
Hopefully I have try to make our side of the story clear to you,if you have any question please do not hesitate to call me on 07701050917.

thanking you

I viewed the reviews here before trying and I left amazed at the blandness of the whole experience!! We are all different I suppose. The menu online did not reflect the Buffett. Ie. no chicken tikka or chat. The spare ribs were the toughest I've ever tried. They kept running out of some foods and only very slowly replaced their dishes. I saw the same dried up bits of pizza from the start until we left. The Chinese options were awful and the Indian dishes were tasteless. The pakora sauce was bitter. The burger buns were so dried up that they just broke up when you held them. Just as we'll as the burgers looked grey and dry. The kids took one bite and left the rest. Despite this it is quite popular? Looking around at some of the clientele reminded me of the waiting area in accident and emergency on a Saturday night! Not for me I'm afraid. There are so many better places which would not be hard!

Went for a pre Kings Theatre meal. Pleasant seating area and HUGE choice. Took starters of various pakoras with spicy onions and chefs special sauce which was delicious. Then sampled some of the chinese mains - stir fried veg, chicken curry n rice fried veg. Sampled the lamb curry mains with boiled rice. Helped ourselves to varied ices which were good to cool the tastebuds after the over spicy hot curries. - I normally like curries fairly hot but they were too chillied for me and lacking much flavour. Probably wont go back as there are many good eateries in the area>
