I have been eating here on a regular basis for the last 10 years and have had many excellent meals and have recommended it to many people.

The buffet on a Sunday and at lunchtimes during the week is a fantastic experience or should I say used to be. We have noticed that during the last year the quality has dipped a little in particular the crispy duck is no longer shredded at the table and now comes on a plate pre shredded in the kitchen, which means it has usually been done before and is therefore dry, please shred it at the table as you used to do.

Overall its a great restaurant and Karen is a star and makes sure service is always up to scratch.

Went for a celebration dinner. Great service and lovely food. Never used the takeaway service so can't comment on that but the restaurant food was delicious.

Went here for the 1st time for a Xmas party with 14 others.
The food was excellent, not greasy as some Chinese food can be, very fresh and served quickly. The service was attentive but not intrusive.
The only thing small criticism I would make is that the restaurant lacks atmosphere. The lighting is bright and would be better slightly dimmed and it did not have much of a Xmas feel.

May be I have eaten at a different place to the other reviewers.........may be I am one of the few people that does not like eating processed chicken. So if you like that you will enjoy the food. Can't fault the staff or venue the prices charged they could afford not to cut corners with quality of meat.
