Trays of perfectly serviceable Chinese grub with a good selection, all you can eat and coming in at £7 or just under. C'mon - what do you want! Not a place for a swanky celebration event maybe, but to fill your boots with a few drinks on top or as a good lunch while on a day trip shopping this... More

Also the bottles of water were well priced at only £1.10 each. I would have given full marks but some of the food was not hot enough on the... More

There was a good variety of dishes, all hot and regularly topped up. The food was tasty, the place was clean and the staff kept our table cleared of empty plates without being obtrusive. Total...

I've been here many times over the years and always have a great meal. The actual décor of the place looks a bit like a school canteen but the food is great with something for everybody. The staff are friendly without being pushy. The food itself is lovely with plenty of choice and always replenished quickly. I've only ever visited... More
