“best buffet in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

This is the best buffet in town by a country mile. How many other buffets can you find that serve food to your table and to order? Okay so it probably is pre cooked but isn't any buffet? And the difference is the food isn't sitting out getting cold and you don't even need to get off your seat! And they give you what you order, crispy duck and pancakes comes out a full duck ready shredded, they don't give you pointless portions. The decor is aged but who cares about that? Great value for money. Definitely try their prawn and chicken satay skewers and Peking spare ribs!

“Poor”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013 via mobile

A1 use to be lovely, and you'd put up with the poor service for the good food with good prices, unfortunately the last 2 times I've been it has been awful! The food was so greasy we couldn't eat it, also extremely salty. My coke was warm and my mums red wine was cold, along with the poor service and price increase it was all round a bad evening out, disappointed
