Have been to Cafe de China several times. It's a fixed price menu, all-you-can-eat menu. But all the food is freshly cooked, so you order your 'buffet' as you go along. For value for money and quality at the price, it's just about unbeatable.
On entering the restaurant this time, the atmosphere seemed different from the start. It turns out that the previous owner has left to set up another restaurant elsewhere. So while the food was as good as ever, the service was very inattentive. While they were quick to take drinks orders, they ignored us when we were trying to order food. I got the impression that this was quite deliberate given the fixed price menu model; minimise the amount of food ordered and maximise the amount of drinks.
Because of the overall experience I can only mark them as 'average'. But I must stress that this would not stop me eating there in future when in the area. I'll continue to enjoy their great food at a great price but re-set my expectations for the service standards.
