Got a little worried after reading the reviews at this place but we thought we'd take the plunge anyway. Wasn't as bad as described. Okay it is definitely not 5 stars but was a reasonable meal. The hot selection was fine plenty to pick from....More

My family and I dined in having the buffet. The host was very friendly. Most of the food was not that tasty. The wontons, egg foo young, chips, wedges were nice but the rest was lacking flavour. I could hardly taste the "Chinese honey" in...More

It was truly awful. Never have I eaten so little at a buffet. Nothing tasted fresh, and some was inedible
