As a Thai, I enjoy meeting up with my Thai friends for a Chinese Buffet. Lau's do a Hot Pot buffet, lots of different dishes to share. Very tasty, very reasonable prices, highly recommend.

Went here for a lunch treat whilst on a shopping trip with my daughter. What a great choice. Lovely fresh buffet. Eat as much as you want. Such tempting choices. Great friendly service and tremendous value for money.
