“Great buffet lunch, good value and quality”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Chinese buffet lunch on a busy Saturday lunchtime with wife and kids. Great value lunch and really enjoyed the (mostly) quality food on offer. Even as a vegetarian there was enough to keep me occupied, though would always prefer a few more interesting options, or even just some cooked veg to have with whichever sauce. Also plenty for the kids to enjoy. Desserts were mixed. Banana fritters were excellent and kids enjoyed the frozen mousse. Fruit wasn't great though. Overall, a great value lunch and am looking forward to returning.
