Went to gourmet plaza with a few friends that had been there before! They have always raved about it! Inside , it is fairly basic so don't be expecting luxury seating! The food was good , but not the best Chinese I have ever had. Unlike other reviewers , our food was warm but that probably comes with arriving at 5:30pm. The waiter was very friendly when ordering drinks ,but he seemed to just stare at our table from the bar throughout our meal.. Made for quite an uncomfortable atmosphere! Overall , it is good value for money but an average Chinese Buffet. Don't expect too much of this place!!

Gourmet Plaza may be ok for people who just fancy a quick lunch bite or something cheap and low key in the evening but facts are that this is relatively low quality produce served in a very much 'school dinner' style environment.

There is very little service apart from drinks brought to your table, apart from that you have to hike up there and grab what you're interested in from canteen-style vats. Difficult to know how long the food has been there some times, certainly seems quite cold when you lug some of the food back! There are better quality Chinese places in Peterborough and for a few extra quid you would be better served venturing elsewhere for something that actually makes the effort to provide a genuine dining experience.

Well the fact this restaurant has more terrible reviews than excellent kind of sums it p... Food left to stand for age.s. staff unbelievably rude and felt like I was pestering them asking for a drink. They told me they do not serve tap water. Just bit of a jumble sale.

Got there and the waitress said we had to sit on a certain four seat table, we asked to sit upstairs and she said no she didn't want to open it yet, so we sat on a four seat table near the door. It was freezing and there was no source of heating whatsoever. The food was really nice but when eating from my plate I found a piece of blue cotton in my food, then we found a hair on one of the sauce bottles. Throughout our meal the waitress kept hovering around our table, not actually saying anything but giving horrible looks. Then she made a blunt remark when taking our plates and made us keep dirty forks which she dropped. Worst of all we were not even allowed a wkd despite the fact being 21! The waitresses were also talking very loudly behind the bar disturbing our meal and a lot of the time wouldn't stop looking at us standing near our table, my friend walked towards the door and was accused of leaving without paying. They should also make it very clear that it is only lunch meals that are £6.50 because we went for dinner and the price wasn't said anywhere except for when we had to pay. Other than that all I can say is nice chicken balls and coke!
