My family & I have recently moved to the Inverness area from Manchester. My son desired a Chinese meal so we went to Jimmy Chueng's buffet restaurant situated in Inverness City Centre on the picturesque River Ness. I appreciate buffet restaurants are not renowned for being culinary delights but this was a sparsely decorated room with a very poor excuse of bland Chinese 'cuisine'. Not worth talking about ! Won't be back. Don't waste your money.

Food was ok not the best Chinese food n Inverness, they really need to change there selection from time to time and maybe add new desserts, it’s been the same for the last 6 years!
Try Panda Garden if you are happy to takeaway there Chinese is delicious and I’ve tried many Chinese takeaways.

First of all I wanted to point out I was recommended this Chinese. By someone who lives local to the area.

Inverness isn’t huge and if travelling please be cautious, the food was cold, the drinks were very watered down and they have a charge for ‘undue wastage’ of the food. Which is not displayed until you are inside sat at your seat.

If cosmos was in Inverness this place would end up shutting down. Quality was just awful. That’s already starting with low expectations with a 3.5 star rating.

We are regular visitors to Chungs whenever we are in Inverness. This time however it wasn't up to the usual standards we have come to expect and enjoy. Some of the choices were overcooked and too chewy, should have been changed out but others were OK. We're hoping it was just a bad day at the office and will continue to visit whenever we're in the city.

First impressions it was busy. Was shown to seat and left. No one offered us a drink or have we been there before. Shocking service. Eventually had to ask a wee boy if we could order drinks. Training needed. Fancied prawn cocktail to start. Erm naw. This was a Chinese buffet with a poor selection if you wanted a salad never mind prawn cocktail. Salad bar and desserts are in same fridge. Weird. So started with shredded duck and pancakes. Hoisin was nice. Duck was shredded at least a week ago. Ate the deep fried starters. Cheap prawn crackers. The noodles were ok. The rice was hard. Chicken curry had chicken mushrooms carrots and onions in a runny sauce that DID NOT taste of curry. Poor quality food. Save your cash and go somewhere else. Was still hungry when we left.
