“Good value”
Reviewed June 24, 2014 via mobile

We regularly visit the Chinese buffet at lunch times and cannot really fault the place. Staff are great and always on hand to help, there's always a great selection of food/deserts and the place is spotless (unlike some other buffet places I've visited in the past). Will continue to visit when ever we can.

“Excellent lunch”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

We enjoyed an excellent, tasty buffet lunch here on Friday. There was plenty of choice on the buffet, and everything nice and hot. As usual, the staff were helpful without being over attentive. We've been visiting this buffet restaurant since it first opened and have never been disappointed. Keep up the good work. Looking forward to eating here again soon.

“High Quality Chinese Buffett”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

My party of nine visited the Chinese Buffett on a quiet Monday evening. Ages between 67 and 12 and no one was disappointed. Delicious hot food - good quality meats - the youngest enjoyed the sushi very much. Good service and attention to our party. The desserts were too numerous to count - everything in plentiful supply. I would definitely recommend the Grand Buffett.

“Average”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

I have been several times, the quality of the food can vay from time to time. it is 4/5 pounds dearer than what it used to be but still good value for money if you eat enough. Drinks are reasonably priced for restaurant standards, on bust periods later on and weekends you may have to wait around 15/30 minutes for a table they do get you in as soon as possible, lunch and earlier on you should get a table no problem. All the staff are polite and you are greeted by a smile, always happy to help on what ever problems you have. The food always seems fresh but sometimes bland, and is changed quite often so you shouldnt have a problem getting your favourite dish! There is also a good choice of desserts from jelly to fruit to ice cream and little cakes.

Hi there, thanks for leaving a review for us and glad you enjoy the selection of food available to you. As far as the price increase, we have had only a very small price increase so perhaps you are confusing the lunch time buffet with the evening buffet which is a higher price due to the much wider selection of dishes on offer.
