It's a bit like sitting in a school dining hall, the food is all you can eat. And is okay the furniture is heavy but it is sutible for those in wheelchairs. As it is all on one level

Today me and my husband took 3 of our children out for tea. It doesn't happen often as it's expensive. And what a disappointment we had. Chicken was rubbery, there was nothing there that wasn't on the menu during day service and that one is way cheaper so we paid for same food just few hours later, and by taste... More

Excellent value, very clean, friendly staff, great choice and food always hot. Not rushed and plates not taken away quickly like a lot of other buffet restaurants. Will continue to visit on a regular basis.

Trays of perfectly serviceable Chinese grub with a good selection, all you can eat and coming in at £7 or just under. C'mon - what do you want! Not a place for a swanky celebration event maybe, but to fill your boots with a few drinks on top or as a good lunch while on a day trip shopping this... More

Went here yesterday while shopping in Plymouth and was pleasantly surprised by the lunch time buffet. Plenty of food to choose from and at £6.50 per head it was good value. Also the bottles of water were well priced at only £1.10 each. I would have given full marks but some of the food was not hot enough on the... More

We visited on a Saturday night when the restaurant was quite busy. We had no problems getting a table and were promptly served our drinks. There was a good variety of dishes, all hot and regularly topped up. The food was tasty, the place was clean and the staff kept our table cleared of empty plates without being obtrusive. Total...
