“a good place for family and friends to dine cheaply”
Reviewed August 20, 2011

This is not "haut cuisine" but the food is good. It gets very busy here and there are often queues in the evening, in spite of there being plenty of tables. A good choice for a family lunch, or a friends get-together. It's busy and buzzing with people coming and going.

Most opt for the serve-yourself buffet: which has a very wide selection of Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese and Japanese dishes - fried, raw, steamed and roasted. You can also select meat or fish at a counter for the chef to grill to your liking (but with French tastes as his guide). Fill your plate as many times as you wish from here or from the several hot and cold gondolas. Wines not brilliant - beer is a better choice (these are waiter/waitress service).

Buffet cost is, Monday/Friday lunch-time €10,90, evening €15,90; Saturday lunch-time €15,90, evening €16,50; Sunday/Fête days €15,90 lunch-time and evening. Children pay according to height (!) - from free to €8,00; those over 130 cms tall pay adult rates. Our party of 8 agreed this was fair value for the quantity and quality of food we all ate.

They do take-aways too (buffet choice €10,50).
