The evening did not start well, only 2 wait staff working but the service changed as soon as other staff came on. I see that this is a recurring complaint, the management needs to take action to fix this problem, this spoiled an otherwise great meal. The standard of food is exceptional and the idea of the fresh endless buffet... More

I haven't been for a while but the food was always fantastic, I only went in for a takeaway but pretty much got ignored for 10 minutes before being able to place my order, when I got my food back home (I live 1 mile away) it was stone cold, not sure if it has changed hands but I won't... More

Excellent food, good service and good value for money, second time we have been and both times it has been very enjoyable with an ideal wait inbetween courses. Loads of parking directly in front of the restaurant. Inside of the restaurant is a little tired - could do with a lick of paint & a bit of modernising. Highly recommended... More

Have been here a couple of times for a family meal. Works really well as you order whatever you fancy and because it's unlimited you can share everything. They also do a sharing starter platter for larger groups which is really good. Good always nice. Maybe just needs a redecorate inside.

The staff were so friendly & helpful, they were really polite and couldn't do enough for us. The food was absolutely gorgeous, we... More

My friend and I have been coming to the Summer Palace for a long time and the service and food has always been very good however last night it was not good. The usual staff looks to have been replaced by people who are very inexperienced, and speak very little English. It took three people to take an order for... More

10 of us went here tonight to celebrate my birthday, we had an 1.5 hour wait for starters to come out, by which time one of the group decided they didn't want a main and was told to leave!! While taking our order the waitress just walked off to talk to another customer with no explanation at all, literally just... More

This was our first and last visit to this restaurant!!!!!! Went at 6.30pm on a Saturday evening. A table of 4 adults and 3 children. The staff apart from one were all rude and do not have the time of day for you. Service was extremely slow, for the main course we ordered 8 dishes. They came out sporadically and... More
