Great spot to take kids on half term holiday. Good value, good selection of dishes for picky kids. The desserts are frozen and defrosted so not very good.

The food was fantastic. The variation of foods is what i wanted. But the place was crowed and the eating time was only limited to 2 hours. it was the minus point. If you are going with more than 4 people you would not be able to dine well due to the time constrain.

This is a foodies paradise, so much variety and cuisines to choose from. As usual I was spoilt for choice, Indian, Chinese,Japanese, English, so many options. Best for those who like a buzzy and hectic night out and preferably if you too are there with a crowd.

Been a couple of times, not bad value but somehow I never feel I get value for money at this place as for some reason I feel quite full quickly so not sure if there are some magic ingredients added to the food to make you feel full quickly or if you get intoxicated by the atmosphere but it is...

Such a variety of food and is delioush the only draw back is you only have a couple of hours if it's busy

We booked a month before and were given a large table as they're were 8 of us including our granddaughter Chloe. We got there about 15 minutes early and were allowed in early. You pay before you go into the restaurant so the bill was roughly £150 as Chloe was under a certain height so only paid £10 for her,... More

Just found most of the Asian dishes tasted the same... The pastas were all stodgy and tasteless.. pizza sloppy. Some people like it here but it just tastes like microwave meals to me. We won't be returning.

Very quick to get seated. Food selection was excellent for a local buffet house and the food was very tasty. A little stingy on the cook-to-order steaks but it's to be expected (and you just just go back for more). Drink selection was very good and the deserts were yum. Definitely be back again! Greg
