Used to be a regular customer of Gourmet Buffet and still miss it. The place was overdue for a refab and done it now, opened its door as "Firecracker".
The food is ok. They keep changing the pricing. Some of the dishes are very nice and has a wide selection of vegetarian options. The ice creams are nice.
The best thing about this restaurant is Fong. After the gourmet buffet closed, my reason to go back to this place is Fong's hospitality.

Went for a quick dinner post the next door movie, ordered dumplings and black bean sauce chicken with steamed rice as main dish.

Got a free pepsi drink as part of the meal deal and overall it was good value for money on the pocket. For 2 ppl the bill came to £16 which was quite decent.

Service was good too for the location and fine ambience.

Refurbished use to be Gourmet Restaurant, eat as much as you like, but now it is set menu but most meals are £5 as it is new.

Nice food, good service if you want to get away from the crowd of the big shopping centre area.

Firecracker is accessible and located 5 minutes from the A406 and Ilford Station. Parking is available in Clements Road multi storage car park for approx £1.20 for 2 hours. The restaurant reopened earlier this year, and was previously called Gourmet. Firecracker is a well deserved refurbishment to the previous restaurant. The decor is contemporary with a deep red decor and seating.

Since opening there has been a £5 offer on most of the main dishes. The dishes are well presented and dishes vary from Phad Thai – Thai chicken green curry and the menu also offers a few vegetarian dishes. There are a few desserts that are literally the same price as the main but the cheesecake is lush.

The staff are efficient, but there is at least one where there appears to be a communication barrier.

The restaurant offers affordable lunch dishes and plays enjoyable soft music. Always a pleasure to visit.
