Love this place, we purposely travel from Edinburgh to here when ever we fancy a Chinese buffet, as the price and quality and quantity of the dishes is superb value for money and simply delicious. As always with buffets you need to stir the food before eating it otherwise you can end up with warm/cold food but this is a... More

We had been a regular many years ago and have went back two or three times over the last couple of years and have to say surprised how quickly a restaurant can go down hill. The place is ok, clean and hasn't changed much over the years. The food selection was poor and expected a larger and better choice of... More

Visiting Scotland and a family member said they'd take us out to eat. I love all you can eat Chinese restaurants but was a little disappointed when we pulled up outside. The place looked like it could do with a bit of TLC. inside, the disappointment vanished... the staff were so friendly and accommodating. Food wise, there was great variety,... More

What a waste of time. Our wedding anniversary dinner consisted of congealed soup, tough meat too hard to even chew. The chicken in batter was so hard it shot off my plate. Fresh satay, was so raw I could literally taste the raw flesh was pink and oozing. £36.00 for nothing. Wont recommend wont be back. Half the food trays... More

Good choice of food and the buffet is very good and had plenty to choose from. Staff very helpful and pleasant. Take away is also good. Have been both times at lunch and dinner both buffets been good. We always try and go at least once a month.

Very disappointed since this used to be one of our favourite places to eat. This is our first visit since it re-opened and it will be our last. I think the chips were actually oven chips, and the food had been sitting out for a while when we arrived, so the sauces were forming a skin on some of the... More

We went today 21/05/2016 for first time for the lunchtime buffet. The five of us arrived just after 13.00 and the food was just coming out. Great selection all freshly cooked piping hot and very tasty. Staff are very friendly and attentive had a lovely time not rushed and great food. We would highly recommend and will definitely be back.
