The Dragon Pearl Chinese Restaurant - Frome Questions & Answers

How does the buffet work please. I always thought buffet was help yourself. I'm also concerned that if I leave food I will have to pay extra and at £22 pound I want to make sure I get my money's worth without wasting food.

Hi. Our buffet is freshly cooked to order so you don't have food that have been sitting around since opening time. You just choose from an ordering sheet and the food will be brought to your table. Although it is a eat as much as you want menu we do hope that the food is not wasted by customers over ordering. We want the customer to get their monies worth but not by wasting good food. It's just a rule to stop the odd few.

I can honestly say that if you have a good appetite you won't be disappointed.

Hope this has helped.

Kind regards

Dragon Pearl.

I think Mary has given a very comprehensive answer. You choose from a menu and can order exactly what you wish. The food is cooked to order and hasn't been sitting around on a buffet table like you find in some places. You can always order more if you wish. I don't blame them for having sensible restrictions as you might occasionally get people who over order massively and then waste the food. Obviously you won't be doing this - honestly go and try it. I am a real fan of this place!!

You get a menu card which has every dish on it. Each dish has 3 columns next to it. If there are 2 of you and you both want wonton - then you put a 2 in that column and so on.

I thought £22 was expensive, but for what we ate, it was really reasonable. All food is cooked to order and brought fresh to the table. If you do not eat what you have ordered then you do not order more. We left a few bits and they were fine.

Totally recommend you try.
