Been coming here occasionally for last few years but was quite disappointed last night as food not up to normal good quality,not as many dishes as normally available,not being replenished when all gone.Desserts disappointing. Wondering if they've had a recent change in ownership/staff as not as friendly or helpful as have been on previous occasions. Wasn't worth the hour trip... More

We went at lunchtime in the week. On arrival we asked for a table by the window and the Waiter did not seem do understand but then a chinese lady said no problem. The Restaurant was very warm and not too crowded. The choice of food was ok but some dishes to be avoided. The sweet and sour pork balls... More

This is a very average buffet restaurant. There is lots of choice (Chinese and Indian food) but nothing really stands out. It is just okay. Not sure that it is worth the price that is charged in the evenings. I won't rush back.

There is a good atmosphere in this place but that is mostly due to the customers and their expectations of decent food. The food was badly cooked and in some cases not fresh. The staff don't want to talk to you and I had to ask to be served at the bar with no other customers and three members of... More

only the second restaurant of this kind I have been to, the main food that I sampled was very nice. The puddings looked good but the few that I tried all tasted the same. Had no issues with the staff and the main dinning area was very clean and tidy. The ladies toilets how ever were very dark, smelt and... More

The food is ok, at £13.99 what can you expect? However the staff are appalling. They don't speak, no interaction, not even 'is everything ok?'. And when it gets to 9.30pm they stand in a line with arms folded glaring at you including the cooks behind the counter for you To leave so that they can go home or actually... More

In short: the worst customer service with rude staff and very rude manager, NOT family friendly, very very noisy, cramped canteen style seating, poor tired looking buffet food in the most part.... and it's not cheap if you consider you could go to any number of nice restaurants elsewhere for a lunchtime deal with a comparable price!!! After a few... More

Price wise slightly on the higher side for value. Fair variety of dishes. Taste wise average. You have the option to choose uncooked meats including prawns and scallops(only 3 at a time)..and have them cooked to taste which is fantastic, only thing is the chef takes a good 20-30 minutes at least and one can feel like he is deliberately...
