This place is good value at £11.00 for all you can eat!
The food is fairly good with a large choice from starters and main to a chocolate fountain on let's of sweets, fruit and jelly.
The service is good, you need never use the same plate twice!
We will go again

As with most Chinese buffet restaurants the service is always fab. Never have to wait long for anything. The food there is cooked very well, there is a good selection though not brilliant in my view, I've seen a lot better from these chinese outlets. Seating and space is good. It can get very full at times and the bathrooms are upstairs. Want a better experience, I recommend Cosmo in Coventry!

First. Restaurant does not open until 5:30, not a minute earlier, and they will not let you in to wait if you turn up at, say, 5:25pm. Secondly, if you're not local to Nuneaton, even with a sat nav, the car park is very hard to find given it's a one way system through the area of the restaurant. Took us 30 minutes to finally work it out, and we are not thick, AND we used the sat nav, which led us to the wrong end of the road.. ;)

Restaurant looks tired on outside, and inside. Also moldy walls, and sort of dirty. Old carpet, tables arent that nicely set up, and staff dont speak english much if at all. They also dont seem to cope well with being busy, and they often are busy, given the food is good. Least for middle England.

You do however have to pay for each seat you take, rather than for who eats. Thus if you have a guest who isnt hungry, they still pay as if they are eating. Tacky? Yes. Big sign when you walk in warns you of this. Another sign right below it further warns that you have only 1 hour and a half max during busy times to eat and go away. I am not joking. How tacky can you get???

When we arrived, which was about 6pm, there was a short wait. other people came in and cut in front of us (cheers), so we waited longer but still got seated in 15 minutes, only upstairs, by the toilets, where there is no second buffet and no waiters that linger upstairs to look after you, either. So you could wait 1 hour and 30 minutes for your drink, then are what, told to leave?

We got our food after ordering our drinks, and went back upstairs, started eating, and I ate something quite hot, and needed my drink to cool my mouth, but it didnt arrive - looked around - nobody around us had any drinks! Finally, they brought them, but it took ages. So, service isnt great, and again, they barely understand you when you order. I said 'rose wine,' and the waiter just looked at me blankly. Oh dear. To be fair, though, after I pointed it out on the menu, he got it right.

OK. The buffet. Plates are tiny, the size of a side salad plate. So of course you have to go back a second or third time if you're hungry. Variety is good. Rice, udon noodles, all sorts of mains including shrimp, chicken dishes, veggies, hash browns (?), chips, chicken balls that kids love, and just loads more. Food looks appetising. Also a chef preparing what looked like skewers, but there was a queue, and we couldn't be bothered.

Main attraction for kids, and let's face it, some adults, is the chocolate fountain. Dip your ice cream bowl under it's flow (not your mouth, please), and fill up your bowl with melted chocolate. Yummy. Only it goes hard when you put ice cream in it. Still good, though. They could use whipped cream as well. There's also fresh fruit, which is nice. And jelly. And sweets.

For two people (one adult, one child), two drinks, plus a small glass of wine, total bill was £26. Not cheap, but not extortionate, either.

I'd come back, but perhaps during less busy time, such as weeknight rather than weekend.

They really do need to redecorate this place, though - once they do, it really will be quite a nice place to dine. Upstairs could be converted into a nice, quiet 'adult only' area, they just need to decorate it, maybe put some windows in. If you are on a date, it's good because you can then go the a few local pubs nearby, within walking distance, though don't expect a quiet dinner here, not at weekends at least. Bright lights, no privacy, and again, you're OUT in 1 hour 30.

Always good every time we visit. Love the chance to have what you like (and as much as you like) instead of having to choose one item from a menu when very often you would struggle to make a selection
