“Good Chinese Buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

Went with friends to the Chinese buffet. Good selection of Chinese cuisine. Had to wait a short while for them to fill up the crispy duck and pancakes, but to be fair it was very busy. Would recommend a visit. The staff were helpful and attentive.
The price was reasonable too.

“Best Chinese Buffet Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

I went into The Chinese Buffet just on the off chance for lunch. We had looked at the prices and thought them to be really reasonable.
First impression was that this looked a professional and clean restaurant. The food was hot and very tasty and was most enjoyable and a nice and relaxed atmosphere if a little to warm in there if i'm being fussy.
If i was to moan about anything the staff could smile a bit more interacting with there customers.
But that's minor gripe. Will defiantly be going back there again and urge People to do the same.
The lunch was even better as my hot girlfriend was there.

“Good food and value, service needs improvement”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

Good range of food on offer, starters, main courses and sweets.

Buffett service so no need for lots of staff but still slow and disorganised.

With a little attention could be much higher in list of Wakefield eating places

“I love the Chinese Buffet!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

I have heard many people slag the Chinese Buffet off with bad reviews and i cant understand why? If you love Chinese food then this is the place to be! Its all you can eat, the food is gorgeous i could eat it all day. I do stick to the usual favourites of mine... i.e. Singapore Vermicelli, Chicken and Mushroom, Chicken curry, Samosas, Egg fried rice (yes i do eat all of this at the chinese buffet i always go for seconds, why not!) etc. value for money is fab at lunch time it is 6.99 for the buffet, not as much choice as the evening buffet but still all my favourites. On the evening the dessert section includes a chocolate fountain with marshmallows and strawberries fresh fruit etc My fave!!!! Love this place the restaurant is lovely and staff can be a bit simple but their manager is a ponce as my friend has worked there but hey ho.
