Disappointed, all you can eat!!!! Ha well it's all you can eat when they top it up, was there for 1.5 hours and 1 dish of crispy duck was brought out!!! The food tasted good, just VERY slow on topping food up!!!! £2 for less than half of coke which is out of a 2L bottle, think this is abit expensive. It's nearly opened think there is room for improving

We went to this restaurant at lunch time. £5.99 for all you could eat! Now that's value for money! We arrived just after 12.00 noon as the food was just beginning to be placed out onto the serving area, so would arrive a little later the next time we visit, which we definitely will.
All the food was freshly cooked and tasty, I couldn't manage to sample all the dishes so there's my excuse for another visit not that I need one :) The waiting staff were efficient and cleared away our dirty plates so that we had clean plates each time we went up to select our food. We left contented and VERY full (no need to go hungry, even in a 'double dip' recession).
If you want good food at a good price I would highly recommend this place.

This new 'as much as you can eat' style Chinese buffet restaurant was sadly disappointing on a first visit. However, it is newly opened and may well improve so -watch this space as I will give it one more shot. The place was very busy with young families and groups of 'lads' and although we just walked in they do take bookings to be ensured a table. Buffet City is open 7 days a week from 12 noon to 11pm. Whilst the price for eating yourself silly ( Lunch £5.99 Evening £9.99) is more than acceptable, the quality was - sadly disappointing! A basic problem was too much liquid/sauce/gravy in the dishes and not enough substance/meat/vegetables. Topping up the dishes was slow and arriving at 7.00pm what was left felt - well like the leftovers. The restaurant is sited in an old closed pub and is nicely decorated. This business definitely has potential as Camborne lacks a decent evening venue, but it is not ready to be a destination restaurant. In this day and age food outlets need to get it right from the start. A little more training for the (very young) staff wouldn't go amiss either. It was very noticeable how much the owner?manager was running around trying to direct things and how much the young staff ambled around seeming doing things at 'their own pace!'

Dined here last night. For £9.99 you do get reasonable quality food and of course plenty of it. Food was replenished frequently so it tasted fresh. Drinks weren't badly priced and staff were excellent. There isn't masses of choice of dishes but what they do provide is tasty and fresh. Would I go back? Absolutely! Hopefully standards will remain as they are though.
