Always fresh cooked and plenty of choices, everything is kept very fresh and tables with space around them. Great value too, eat as much as you like.

Friendly enough buffet/restaurant but the food choices were not that great. I last went here several years ago and the food choices were much better. Definitely a decline since then!

7 of us for a 6pm meal. Hadn't been for a year, previous visit was poor quality food. Pleased we tried it again. Food plentiful, good choices, hot plate a must. attentive staff, very clean. Food quality was excellent. We will return.

Delicious hot Asian food of all sorts. I especially like the sushi area I do think they could do better in the dessert department but apart from that nice food and service.

Birthday meal out with my wife. We ate a lot of duck - tend to get carried away, forgetting all the other stuff you can eat. Great selection, highlights include the spare ribs and crispy meaty stuff. Biggest challenge is to pace yourself in the...More

I'm sure you can. I have seen babies and toddlers in there, during the evening. But you could always ring them to double check! It's great food and a lovely experience for children. I go with my 2 teenage boys and everyone... More

HI. Never been at lunch time, understand the hotplate isn't available either, therefore would not use in my opinion.

I think it's about £15 in the evening and cheaper during the day, yes there is a good variety for vegetarians however you can also have food cooked in front of you if you select your own ingredients.
