We visited as a family of 13 for a birthday celebration.
The menu was quickly explained to us and we ordered. (It looks quite confusing bit is actually straight forward once you know how)
All of the food was made fresh as it was ordered and arrived nice and hot.
I don’t have any complaints at all about this place. Even though it was packed, you never had to wait for service or place your order for the next course.
A tip for anyone visiting, if you like to have prawn crackers with your soup make sure you order these as extra when you order your soup. It’s £2.50 per portion and they are massive!
I will definitely go back if I’m in the area.

Went in on New Year’s Eve and were delighted. A great choice of food, excellent service and a lovely atmosphere! Quite unlike any other Chinese banquet I’ve ever been to. I can’t recommend it highly enough!

We were in Chester and just fancied a Chinese meal, we had been to the Slow Boat before and had always been happy so it seemed the obvious choice.

It was Friday night and they had on offer a FullBelly Buffet, amongst other things. We were tempted by the endless courses and the prospect of not having to leave our seats, yes, they would deliver the courses to us at our table.

The service was fantastic and the food excellent. I had the nicest curry that I have tasted in a Chinese restaurant, ever, Singapore Laksa Curry with King Prawns. It was so nice that I felt compelled to order a second portion which I devoured with the same enthusiasm as the first.

This place was packed when we got there. It’s cheap but really nice. The staff are excellent

It’s a buffet menu however the staff bring you what you want and as much as you want and as many times as you want.

Would and will be visiting again.
