“Good for the money”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Their lunch time menu, 3 courses for £6.40 is really good value and your not limited for choice with starters and mains. However, desserts are limited as the Chinese don't specialise in desserts.

“yummy”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

A lovely Chinese restaurant a stone's throw from the hotel. The staff were friendly and efficient and the food quite amazing for the prices - £10.50 for a sizzling fillet melt in the mouth steak! We topped off our meal with banana fritters and ice cream - yummy.

“Very Very Average...”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

I had originally rated this restaurant as 'poor' but have grudgingly upped the score to 'average' due to the fact that if you can ignore the shocking service, the food lives up to an average rating.

Have eaten in here twice for the 'all you can eat buffet' - the first time the food wasn't great, the service was non-existant for drinks, had to go and look for someone and ask to place an order (which they got wrong for both of us)

Second time the food was of a better standard and the buffet table was replenished more frequently than it had been before, however some of the food was excessively salted - but the service remained consistently bad, staff seemed to struggle to understand what we were saying, got orders wrong, and then worst of all, a crowd of about 6 staff actually STOOD BY our table waiting for us to leave, lifting plates before we had finished with them.

Last but not least, they could do with actually labelling the food on the buffet table so people know what they are eating.

“Now a Self-Service Buffet”

Having eaten here of and on over the years I found on my last visit that it is now self-service,which seems to be popular with the patrons.The food is consistently good and they do a very reasonable Lunch.

“Good Food with great value!”
Reviewed June 2, 2012 via mobile

This is an excellent restraunt with a real Chinese feel to it. I would strongly recommend the all-you-can-eat buffet for under a tenner per person! It includes a range of food they have on the normal menu and various flavours of ice-cream for dessert. The only thing I would do to improve the buffet is to label the food so vegetarians can eat with ease. If you are planning to go to this restraunt around the weekend I would advise booking a table as I have seen the restraunt packed numerous times before.
