After a hard days work, I was starving. Friendly flyer girl told me of this new buffet place for a reasonable price. All world cuisine at arms reach :) fresh food made in front of your eyes, including lamb chops to die for! Not like some of the stale buffets that have food left out for long periods. I wish I had more room :p Nice decor and comfortable seating.

tried this new buffet today and was extremely disappointed.
s&p chicken wings was so dry and tasteless, singapore noodles was a complete joke... where's the spice?? egg fried rice was ok (most simplest dish), chicken korma lacked the curry spice and coconut, fish was dry and definitely not fresh, sweet and sour sauce was so cheap it was like jelly, ice cream was airy and tasted weird (macdonalds plain sundae is way better!), and the fruit flavoured jelly was almost turning into water.... that's just naming a few, i can go on if i remembered everything i ate!
the best food in this place is the lamb... all lamb dishes especially the freshly grilled lamb chops. if your going to go to this buffet, stock up on the lamb... you will get your moneys worth :P
the staff are extremely friendly and helpful, very easy to get on with so only tipped on the customer service, not the food :P

In our experience, Chinese buffets have the potential to be excellent but the small number of 'multi-cuisine' places we've visited have all been pretty poor. This place is not the same!

We went on a Monday night with a £16.50 Groupon and only bought one extra drink so the whole thing was less than £20. Definitely good value for money when you consider the array of choice.

They advertise Indian, Thai, Chinese, Mexican, Italian and French and do not disappoint (they even had one English dish - roast chicken and gravy). The food itself from these hot plates is fairly standard and some contained low quality meat and were cool after being left out for too long.

The real stars of this place are the chefs who cook fresh meals for you. They have 6 or 7 sections, each with their own freshly cooked cuisine ranging from naan breads and pasta to stir fries and teriyaki. My wife is allergic to onion and the chef prepared a tomato pasta sauce from scratch for her. And with a smile on his face. I was amazed at the quality of my steak, yes steak, as it was fan-fried in front of me.

Finally the deserts are to die for, white and milk chocolate fountain, fruit, cakes, jelly, icecream.... amazing!

Definitely recommended but try as many of the fresh meals as possible.

Found this establishment whilst walking around looking for a place to eat around the Phones4U Arena.

I am not usually a buffet kind of person as I don't eat much at one meal. However, my 25 year old son was with me and was hungry. We were ambushed with a flyer for Peachy Keens as we walked passed Printworks and decided to give it a go. What is different is that the buffet offers cuisine from all over the world not just Chinese, etc. There is variety and something for almost everyone's pallet. The food was good and service was polite.
We left very stuffed without even trying half of what was on offer.
Price was good for a buffet.
