Ok so we have been here a few times , but to be honest I feel the food is left sitting there too long , not enough customers to create the turn around of food . and if you go in before 4pm its cheaper but if you turn up at , lets say 3.45 they tell you that you only have 15 mins to eat but will charge you regardless, I think it is only fare if your seated and you have paid your money then they should honour that fact! Put us right off going again .....

Very friendly, eat as much as you like chinese buffet style restaurant, as soon as you finish one plateful the plate is whisked away and you start again with a fresh plate, VERY GOOD VALUE., the only downsider is not a lot of dessert choice, but by then you are too full to care!!

This used to be a good lunch time venue to chat over an inexpensive buffet each as much as you want lunch. My recent visit - most probably my last unless things improve - had much less choice than in the past, food was greasy and lacked any flavour. Some soft drinks are now included in the price as is ice cream as a dessert but these additions have led to restricted choices and reduced quality. Perhaps I'm not their target audience anymore - shame as it provided an alternative to pub lunches.
