Went Sunday night half the dishes were empty and was too half the accompaniments. When I brought it to the attention of what seemed to be the manageress I was told there was more just coming out. Half an hour later when my husband and I had finished a disappointing meal with poor choice the dishes were still empty. If... More

Smaller than some of the "chain" buffet restaurants, so a much smaller menu, but still a good range of Chinese and Indian mains. Excellent value for money (evening) - even better at lunchtime. Food quality was good and well-cooked, although maybe not as much hot spicy stuff as I would have liked.

We decided to pay this place a visit as it was an all you can eat buffet which we quite fancied. It was cheap to get in and you have to pay before you eat. It felt like a canteen style establishment and we felt it looked quite tired. The staff were not very engaging and came across as quite... More

I was suprised to find this so much better than other chinese buffet restaurants that i had visited. The place looks clean and well decorated. The staff are very good and always on the go, they clearly know there job well, and are constantly checking and refilling containers. The food is of excellent standard, really nice tasting food, and alot... More

Went looking for food on a day trip to Cleethorpes and the missus found this excellent little place. The buffet price was very cheap and we was told we had to pay before we ate, which is understandable if people have done a runner before paying. Their was plenty of choice and on offer and the food was hot and... More

Reading the other reviews, this place seems to be a bit hit or miss. Luckily I arrived on one of the Hit nights because the staff were accommodating, the food I had (and I had a lot) was great and all in all I had a great time. Lots of stuff to choose from, not sure about the Indian selection... More

Today was my first time back here since I had my 18th Birthday meal here almost 10 years ago. I was sad to see it was not quite as nice as I remember as I had really fond memories of that night. Whilst the food was nice and there was a good choice, the place was incredibly noisy. Children were... More

This is the most filthy disgusting restaurant I have ever been in, in my entire life! You have to pay before you eat unfortunately. We went to our table and as I looked around I thought we were in a squat. Mismatched tables and (threadbare) chairs. Manky broken chain things hanging at the windows and doors and don't even get...
