My partner and I went here last night, Bank Holiday Sunday and we had a fantastic time. The staff are so friendly and efficient. The food is so so good. All the dishes (and we ate loads) tasted delicious, especially the salmon and noodles where...More

Does what it says on the tin really... Chinese food buffet style. There is plenty of choice and we visited on a busy Saturday night, so there were plenty of staff around filling up the trays. They cleared the plates swiftly and drinks were served...More

Went there with a couple of friends for dinner. Sunday-Thursday the price in the evening is £14.80 per person, additional £2 during the weekend. The food offering was good, we really enjoyed the desserts - especially bananas in dough. Overall, still a bit too pricey...More

Me and my partner went to this restaurant recently. It is buffet style, and there is a decent choice of food (we went on a Saturday). The food was below average as it was rather bland. Have definitely had better food elsewhere. The only good...More

Slightly more expensive to eat than you would expect. (Approx £11:00 for adults on a Sunday). However the quality of the food is better than cheaper local alternatives. The duck pancakes were flowing and were really tasted especially with a sprinkling of crispy seaweed. The...More

It’s an absolutely horrendous place to eat. I went in today to get some lunch. It says on the menu that at lunch time there are “25 mouthwatering dishes to choose from”, well that’s not true because there was only 11 today. Don’t get me...More

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.
