This is a no frills type place and is really reasonably priced. The food is of a good quality especially the stir fried broccoli!

Firstly told cash only, order taken then payment asked for! Hadn't eaten! Starters cold and stodgy, house wine obviously cheap. Told chef re cold starter that perhaps Bain Marie not working. Shrugged his shoulders. Will not be back there for sure.

My wife and I ate here on a recent visit to London. On arrival we were quickly shown to our table by a male waiter who informed us that that we must pay in advance. I handed over £40 for the meal and waited 15 minutes for my change, when it didn't arrive I asked the waiter for my £16... More

This place looked ok from outside - was a chinese buffet so not expecting anything amazing. The service was awful - sit down, pay and leave you to it. The food was ok. Will not be returning.

Mediocre food but poor hygiene. Prawn crackers scattering on the corridor. Rude staff. Much room for improvement.

Great cheap and cheerful all you can eat Chinese buffet. Food is hot and plentiful and you can fill your plate as often as you like! We witnessed a German rugby team demolish all the dishes many times with no restrictions. Great cake shop onsite for takeaway treats

Chinese buffets are always a risk, and even on this occasion we had written off most in the area, leaving us with Kowloon and one other option. Unfortunately, we ended up with Kowloon. Huge mistake. We were a party of three and as soon as we had been given a table, I had cleaned the food off the seats, taken... More

The only place I have ever been to where you pay before you eat. Food was probably the worst Chinese I have ever had. Nevermind the fact they were full to the brim squashing people in and didn't have any rice and no chicken curry?? Avoid at all costs!!

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
