We had a quick lunch here before leaving London. We had the buffet it cost £10.50 plus drinks. So about £13 each. It wasn't the best Chinese I've ever had and it definitely wasn't the worst. Food was a bit bland All in all not...More

Very poor quality food. Some of the meat (chicken and beef) was a strange texture. The staff are rude, the restaurant is dirty and the buffet is small. NOT worth a visit.

We ate one time here. The buffet was good and we liked the food. The only problem was that inside was very cold. They did not have any heater. Probably i would come back because of the prices and the food.

This has an awesome bakery full of traditional Chinese buns, swiss rolls and cakes. It is very well priced, we spent £12 and got a whole bag full, it's roughly £1 for a bun but they're big buns. Definitely worth a visit. Very tasty and...More

Been here twice now (Chinese buffet places in London are becoming hard to find). £12, eat as much as you like (so long as you don't waste food!). Cash only place (cash machine next door). Serves beer, wine and soft drinks. Staff are just fine,...More

There were not a lot of choices with the food. The food for me was not good compared to all the other Chinese restaurants I've tried. The food was really salty and oily. It seems as if the food was reheated a few times. I...More
