I was looking forward to this addition to Bishopbriggs, but after two visits I won't be rushing back. I went for lunch then the next time for dinner. The food is pretty un-exciting and quite bland. The veg pakora had a strange taste to it. I complained and fresh pakora was put out but it was still the same. It would be ok if it was a cheap buffet, but its not. The first time I was told my 2yr old was free which was fine (Crow Tavern kids eat free) but second time I was charged £5 for my child. After haggling it was taken off the bill.

I just don't know if its really good value. For 2 adults in the evening it was about £32! We were drinking soft drinks.

An enormous range of food, all you can eat buffet style at affordable prices. Starting at just £6.99 for lunches during the week. They offer Italian, Chinese,Thai, Indian and carvery options as well as a kid friendly selection of chicken nuggets, chips and beans etc. Deserts include the chocolate fountain with a selection of dipping items that will have the kids going back and back (and back) plus a choice of ice cream, mini pastries and cheesecakes.

Since opening the place has been busy every night, the car park filled to capacity with people queuing for spaces. The busiest times are early evening when large families seem to go, so if you want things a little quieter or don't want to queue for a space, wait till 8pm when it quietens down. Staff were really friendly and although rushed off their feet were always smiling and attentive.

The kids are very welcome and parents need not fret about their little darlings making noise and upsetting other diners .Another huge plus, that really surprised us is the drinks are also very reasonably priced which in a buffet restaurant is a rarity!

I would say however, if you want a great Indian, or Chinese or Italian you'd probably go elsewhere, but if you want good food at great prices in a casual atmosphere you can't go wrongl. Great for the family who can't decide or agree on what to eat, because here you really can have it all!!!

a really good variety of tasty food, such as - Pizza's, several curry dishes, seafood section. There is even the option of having a nice roast dinner, with carrots, peas, broccoli and potatoes. There are 4 types of Ice cream - Vanilla, Chocolate, Strawberry and Mint Choc Chip. Lots of little cakes and a chocolate fountain with marshmallows.
The service is good also and i really liked the decor inside - highly recommended

Recently opened in bishopbriggs this all u can eat buffet certainly delivers! Prices between £11 & £14 for evening dining and cheaper at lunchtimes . I've never seen such a variety, dishes from Italy Pakistan India China Thailand and more. They also have a carvery with all the trimmings and a great selection of desserts. Food is frequently replenished and always hot. Initially concerned that a restaurant doing so many dishes would fail on them being freshly cooked but not the case. Overall pleasantly surprised and impressed
