I first went here 4 or 5 years ago, we had a nice time, good value and good selection of food. My family and went back in early January 2017, I couldn't believe the change, prices have increased, way too expensive for a buffet, the place is on the edge of being run down. We went in search of desert... More

This is your typical Chinese buffet. They had rice, noodles, vegetables in sauces, meats in sauces, soup, satay, and desserts available. A healthy eater could get by - a small salad bar (greens, tomatoes, cucumber) and on the night I came, grilled salmon.

I thought the price for the buffet per person at lunch time was a little on the steep side, but then again it is in a major city centre. The food was okay - the crispy chicken I had was a little on the dry and chewy side at times, but the lemon and orange sauces were lovely. The rice... More

Restaurant not the cleanest, staff not overly attentive, the food is mediocre. Visited about once a year for past 5 years, seems to get worse every time. Price is cheap but to be honest, you'd get a nicer take away from practically any chinese in the city. Maybe they need to up the price and then the quality will come... More

We went to this restaurant for a dinner buffet; it was crowded and extremely loud. I ordered a mango drink (3 Eur), but instead received water diluted with something resembling orange. The food looked very tasty, but had no specific flavour; plenty of meat, and very limited selection on vegeterian dishes. All in all, probably not the best place in... More

What a good find. A huge selection of fresh food well cooked. The food serving area was kept clean and constantly topped up The restaurant was very busy and full of Chinese people, to me that must be a good sign because if it was poor surly they wouldn't eat there. All you can eat for 12 Euro what a... More

One of the famous and one of the best chinese restaurants in Dublin. Really tasty food at a good price and it.s an 'all you can eat' type of restaurant with different chinese specialities. It.s really modern and it.s worth eating here.

value for money is not one of Dublins best attributes as the exchange rate now makes it a very expensive place for any Brits other than from London but this restaurant ,which was recommended by our taxi driver ,was an excellent choice.If you want a romantic meal for 2 or a posh night out this is not the place to...

The food is beautiful. I'm quite a picky either but there's loads for me to eat as there is a wide variety of food. However, the price has gone up. Used to be a better value for money.
