I understand that other reviewers complain about their service etc. but I have to say, i'm a naturally polite, and cheerful person.... More

We went to East meets west for our anniversary. We found the staff very friendly and attentive. We had an all you could eat buffet at £15.95 which has a very wide selection. The food was very good served on warm plates. I would recommend the crispy duck which is excellent. This place definitely does not deserve its present position... More

Visited here on a Wednesday evening. Pleasantly surprised to see that the restaurant was busy. Was attended by a couple of lovely waiters, food was fresh and plentiful, would definitely return. Excellent value for money.

We live locally to this Chinese restaurant so visit fairly regularly. With the exception of Saturday night which is a la carte, all other nights offer a fresh order buffet, currently £15.95 for adults. There is a wide choice from the buffet menu which you can order from as many times as you like and it's cooked and presented freshly... More
