“Modest and moderate”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

A group of us ate here. It was OK but nothing more in my opinion. The place was mostly empty and lacked atmosphere. Some of the dishes were lukewarm. The staff seemed to be going through the motions. I would not hurry back.

“Great Value for Money”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

This is a great Chinese restaurant in Rugby. The best point is that you can do as much as you can eat, but its all freshly cooked and the portions are not over the top.

The service is good and never long delays between courses.

The staff are friendly and full of character.

“almost exc”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

We decided to choose River Avon on a recommendation from a friend.Seated immediately although it was very busy.We had the all you can eat buffet from the green menu.All you can eat but brought to your table.The food was really really good and the only reason we didnt give it the 5 stars was because the fried rice was overdone and sticky.House red wine was great too.Staff were pleasant and attentive.We definately be returning.Best Chinese restaurant in town by far.

“I love this place”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

River Avon is by far the best Chinese in Rugby. We went for my friends birthday and we've been on other occasions to, every time has been fantastic, they also offer a variety on the menu (all you can eat, buffet, or just one meal) the all you can eat is amazing! we all went up at least 4 times each and there was plenty for everyone and a large variety.

I would recommend this place to anyone, its great for family occasions, we went for my aunties birthday also and the service and food were great.

“All You Can Eat Freshly Cooked Food”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

Wev have been to the River Avon many times over the years and always been happy until one time early in 2011. Since then we had not returned until now. We went on a Friday night and it wasn't very busy at all, which is a shame because it's not that atmospheric anyway. We looked at the help-yourself buffet (I think it was £12.95 per head) but it was quite sparse, so we went for the £17.95 per head all-you-can-eat menu. This is the best option as the food is cooked to order and you can have as much as you want, as long as you clear your plate between orders (they charge if lots left on the plate). The starter platter is our favourite: satay, prawns, ribs, prawn toast etc. There is a huge range of dishes to choose from and the food is delicious. The service is sometimes a little impersonal but not bad.
