We have been before and it was ok but this time it was not good. We booked for a family meal and birthday we booked a table but they seemed as though they had no tables we did get one. The food was not as good and they had run out of some of the food they normally have. When... More

At first impression it looked like there is a lot of choice. The buffet was large however at closer look we found out that 90% of all meat was just chicken made on different style. Obviously the owners do not give a damn about variety but go for the money. Rice in sushi looked and tasted overcooked and the filling... More

If you want to stuff yourself silly on average dishes then this is the place for you. Lots of choice and lots of seating.

Visited on an afternoon lunch session and left distinctly underwhelmed. I feel this restaurant has gone down hill since our last visit. Food was lukewarm at best, lots of food wasn't replenished e.g. Noodles , rice , crumble . Choice was very average . The quality of meat wasn't very good. Fatty beef etc. Desserts generally seem to be cheap... More

I suggested to the in laws that maybe we could try hot buffet as it would suit everyone. When we arrived two chefs outside smoking. The entrance was dirty. We entered the music was blasting. We immediately turned around and left. I wouldn't have entered but mother in law was curious she couldn't leave quick enough. I've used hot buffet... More

Meet the basic needs. Children enjoyed themselves especially the variety and ability to taste a little bit of food without worrying about waste. Reasonably priced & children enjoyed the mocktails.

We went for lunch on a Monday, this place is massive. Lot's of food to choose from. Price is a good deal. Everything I ate tasted good, only one thing tasted off it was the beef with broccoli (the beef had a sour flavor). Shrimp was good, fried rice was good. Service was good. I would like to try dinner... More

All very good, nothing exceptional either way, all very good, nothing poor or mind blowingly good although the pork ribs and some of the prawns the were close to fantastic. Bulk food is hard to present well, lots of food being consumed quickly. Respect to those who pulled it off. 😎

If like us you call at 5pm on a Saturday it's going to cost you £20 for a drink and food. The choice quite frankly is awful, the quality poor, and the staff look pretty uninterested. You'd be better off going to a chinese / indian / pizza parlour / tex mex and getting one good meal. Which is the... More
