We were visiting Burton and came across the Wing Wah restaurant by chance (not much choice for chinese in Burton really). We were advised that it would be a 30 minute wait, the place holds 360 or so diners and it was heaving (fri 1st nov). Waited about 20 mins and then shown to table.

Have to say the place looked very nice to us, the choice of food was amazing and everything we ate was both fresh and hot and anything that was low on quantity soon replenished. Not sure how they do it really with so many people.

The desserts were amazing, never seen such choice in a buffet restaurant everything from ice cream, gateaux, cheescake, fruit even a chocolate fountain in the middle. We were impressed, the only downside was we left stuffed as we did over partake on the toffee bananas and profiteroles,,,,,

It just goes to show how subjective reviews are, I have read some awful reviews here for the restaurant but can't give anything but glowing report on our visit.

Lots of families, birthday parties etc but not a single 'Burton Chav' in sight.....

Always a bit weary of restaurants/venues with all you can eat menus but this one was definitely a surprise.
Venue looks nice. If you learn it's in a former dance hall you wonder but once inside that will disappear, it looks nice.
Food, there is plenty and plenty to choose from. Large selection with something for everybody. From a large selection of fried foods to healthy options. Their seaweed is to die for, just right, not to sweet, not too salty.
Service was great too, just about every time you have finished something the dirty dishes disappear by the friendly staff.
The only bit of criticism is that there was a bit lack of music. I expect a bit of Chinese style music softly in the background.
You will need a set of wheels when you leave, you are bound to be stuffed to the rim.!

I have visited Wing Wah for many years and never had an issue, just left feeling very uncomfortable and bloated due to eating too much! Staff are friendly and attentive. Food is of good quality and is always replenished and hot. Good choice, even chicken nuggets so nobody goes hungry! The only thing I would pick out which is the reason why my review is not 5/5 is the price of the drinks. The drinks are very expensive and are of the cheaper variety.

Tried many Chinese restaurants but this buffet style service is fantastic!

Try the Chefs specials which people seem to overlook!

Highly recommended
