“Buffet / Wok / Grill - All you can eat, good food but very crowded”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

The restaurant is on the main street directly facing the central station. The restaurant is quite sizable inside however the entrance is small. It's highly recommended to make a reservation if you are a big group.

Food wise, they serve fusion Asian, mostly Chinese and Japanese. And they have a wok and grill area where you can select raw material to give to the cooks to process. We have been to a couple of restaurants like this in Spain, France and Switzerland. I'd say 28 euros per person is on the expensive side, but overall quality of food, service and dinning environment is above average.

I am surprised that a restaurant of this size can be so crowded in such a small town. The service is actually pretty good. I would imagine they are mostly students since this is a university town. I noticed locals don't tip. We left a few euros. I also worked as a student.

“Good quality food, deliciously cooked.”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

I have been here several times with a large group and it never fails to impress! If you have a party of 10 or more you can take advantage of the offer of paying 10 Euro for unlimited drinks (wine, beer, soft drinks) for 2 hours and an extra 2 euro for every half an hour afterwards. Worth doing.

You are offered a starter which is served to your table - I would only do this if you want soup as everything else is on the buffet - and then you're free to hit the buffet!

The choice is incredible and all food (with the exception of the 'kiddie' section) is of good quality with fresh ingredients and if frequently re-filled.

There is a tapas bar serving things such as stuffed jalapenos, olives, tapenades, beef carpachio, mixed pasta. A cold fish bar serving prawn mayonnaise, whole salmon fillet, tuna salad. A sushi bar serving all the rice based selection, teryaki beef, wasabi. A dessert sections serving stroop waffles, cheesecake, creme bruee, chocolate cake and a delicious chocolate fountain.

By far the best sections are the grill, serving two different cuts of steak, chicken satay, king prawns, kangaroo steak and lamb cutlet and cooked to your liking in a cooking oil of which the ingredients are a secret but makes the meat so flavoursome

The second best section is the wok section is where you can place the meat you want (chicken, beef, pork, prawns, king prawns) along with vegetables of your choice (pak choi, onions, mushrooms, oyster mushroom, baby corn, mixed peppers, beansprouts, broccoli among others) and hand it to the wok chef who cooks it in a sauce of your choice including thai, oyster, black pepper, house special.

I've been several times and both myself and members of my party have loved it everytime.

Tip: if you order the drinks offer the serving staff will NEVER ask you if you want re-fills. You have to flag them down and ask them. Don't be afraid to do this when you still have some drink left as you can wait 10mins for your drinks to appear. You can also order karafs of wine - just ask!

“Good choice of food, very good quality for a buffet”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

We ate here with our young children and there was plenty of choice that suited both them and us. I'm not usually a fan of restaurant buffets as they often have bland and tired-looking food but that's not the case here.

“Best buffet in Leiden”
Reviewed April 22, 2012

I was pleasantly surprised to find an "all you can eat" buffet of this quality. I went there with a friend after a day visit to nearby Keukenhof Gardens. We asked for suggestions from our hotel for a restaurant within walking distance, and we were not disappointed. Everything was fresh, with a variety of choices. They even had a dessert table with many delicious items. The price was very reasonable...and we took advantage of the "senior price".
