Visited on Sunday 18th August for the "All you can eat buffet"....which to be truly honest isn't much! The "starters" were what you'd buy from Iceland for a cheap nibble - chewy,greasy prawn toast, old offcuts of peppers in wilted batter & cold chips. The mains were no better, apart from a dire lack of choice, the staff kept stirring the food to avoid skins forming on the dishes. Very little left in the pans at 2.00pm. The potato & chicken curry was 90% potato....had someone beaten me to the chicken? The other dishes were just as bad, tough meat interspersed with tired veg. Desserts or more to the point the 1 dessert......tapioca with lychees was the best thing about the meal. Also staff need to be aware that cleaning the table next to the one at which we were sitting with Mr Sheen polish,isn't a good idea!!! Furniture polish & food don't mix. Overpriced.

We popped in for food after tiring of Indian cuisine and were very impressed. The service was excellent (very attentive) the food was beautiful and the price was very reasonable. We will be going here more often.

Celebrated our daughter's 30 birthday here, with 18 friends and family. The staff made a wonderful effort to decorate the area with balloons and banners. The food was of a very high standard; hot and delicious served to everyone at the same time. Excellent menu with dishes to suit every taste - even me (and that is not always easy - ask my wife) . The staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgable. Everything was reasonably priced. A great night was had by all

The food at this restaurant is amazing! I have been to thailand and the food at this restaurant is like being back there! I would recommend it, it is gorgeous. The service and decor are excellent too. Only wish it was closer to us we would be there all the time.
