“One of the best Chinese buffets”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Plenty of choice buffet-style, especially in the evenings for which you do pay more. As much as you can eat but don't be greedy to the point of leaving food on a plate. Price also includes dessert - can recommend toffee apples, ice-cream and jelly cubes.

Only dislike - plenty of fried foods which one has to restrict oneself on.

“Good value Chinese Buffet in heart of town centre”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Right on the historic Tuesday Market Square close to the Corn Exchange and Arts Centre venues. A modern ambiance chinese all you can eat buffet. It does what it says on the tin. The food was always being refreshed so did not seem to suffer from hanging around for ages as can be the case in buffet places. The dishes were better than average for a buffet and overall the value was excellent.

“Good Buffet”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

In Kings Lynn looking for a table for 7 people on a wet Friday evening.December and most places fully booked with Christmas parties. Restaurant looked full but friendly staff set us up a table within minutes. Normal Chinese buffet fare.All dishes kept nice and hot and very tasty. Very reasonabley priced. If in Kings Lynn again we will certainly return.

“Good food & handy location”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

We visited this chinese buffet restaurant prior to a gig at the Corn Exchange just across the market place which was really convenient. The food was good, plenty for non-meat eaters like myself and staff weren't hanging over you all the time.
Highlight of the experience though was spotting Zac from the Proclaimers having his tea before performing (BRILLIANTLY!) at the Cornex later. Would return.
