“Spoilt for choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2013 via mobile

We stumbled across this restaurant whilst looking around Printworks and what a great find! It is a set price and fantastic value for money. It offers over 7 different cuisines and has live chefs who cook certain dishes to order.
The restaurant is set out well and has a lively atmosphere.
We really enjoyed sampling everything on offer.
Some people state it is pricey but where else can you get so many starters, soups, mains, sides and deserts for the price?
The food ranged from sushi, lasagne, Thai curries, stir fry, squid to chocolate fountains. All food was tasty, fresh and hot.
Staff were pleasant. Cutlery could do with a proper clean though.

We really enjoyed ourselves and would definitely visit again....complete bargain!

“Great choice of food, superbly cooked - bit pricey though :-(”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2013

Visited this buffet restaurant before the Will.I.Am concert - fabulous choice of food... very good service too, but thought the bar/drinks and set price of £15.99 per person was too expensive for what basically is a cafeteria set up - although as I say the food was excellent.

“Really really not worth the money, also not very clean”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

We arrived at seven on a Sunday and the buffet really did not look its best, there was food in a lot of the sauces and the selection was not great.

There were flies at the dessert table and almost all of the desserts looked old and unappetizing. The milk chocolate fountain was mostly out of chocolate.

The Indian food was average (the naan a bit overcooked in my opinion and no garlic taste of the garlic naan). I did not like the Thai food and my husband had a steak which was very tough. The salads were cheap and not fresh.

I really can not recommend this place except maybe for groups of teenagers and from my short stay in Manchester I know that there are many places there with much better food for a better price.

“Great Customer Service, Good choice of food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

First visited lunch time as a couple, really enjoyed the food, good quality & wide range of choice. So impressed by our first visit, that we returned with our family of 5 including x3 children- must mention Tommy the Bar Manager- excellent customer service from booking onwards.
Thank you Peachy Keens & Tommy for making our visit so welcoming & enjoyable. from Sabena

Called in to have a lunch here and found the choice to be poor! The food was average wouldn't come back. Love buffet restaurants but would avoid this one.
