Been several times. Clean, staff friendly and efficient. Food hot and regularly refilled. Good selection of Chinese and Thai food. Never had a bad meal, ever so reasonably priced.

As with most "serve yourself buffets" the food is a wide range of dishes. There has been a change of ownership to "Mimosa Restaurants" and this has resulted in a broader range of Asian dishes including more Indian based ones. The food is generally hot...More
