“Reheated sloo”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

Lots of reheated slop that all tastes vert similar and a hell of a lot of deep fried food. worst buffet i have ever been to. Service was good but food is bad. Had better microwave meals. 16,95 each + drinks. Avoid.

“Good in parts”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

Four of us being hotel guests thought we would try out the eat as much as like asian buffet mainly Chinese and Indian.
Reasonably authentic and some dishes better than others.Curries were fair ,the chilli oil was sensationally hot, banana fritters were freshly cooked and delicious but much of the buffet suffered from being reheated which was not surprising as we were eating on a Sunday night when the hotel was very quiet . Including beer- the local okells brew -our share of the bill came to just over £39. Service was friendly and helpful in this downstairs breakfast room. Possibly it would be better if fewer dishes were offered thus enabling fresher better quality to be offered.

“birthday treat”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

eat as much as you like buffet in the basement of the Empress Hotel. Excellent value, fills up teenage boys (!), food quality good enough for their mums too. Couldn't do it too often in view of the calorie count. Go upstairs to the Empress bar for live piano music and lovely views from the conservatory
