Went here for lunch, we've been here before, but I was pretty disappointed this time, the food just seemed to have been lying for a long time, and some people thought it was acceptable to handle/ pick up the food with their hands, I will not be returning here

We went for a friends birthday and asked them to bring a cake out for him, to which they kindly obliged... More

I've been to this "All-you-can-eat" restaurant restaurant around 10 times and I've never been disappointed: the food, the staff, the cleanliness are all great. It's very good value for money, family friendly, ample free parking and easy to get there, being on one of the main roads.
