As a Thai, I enjoy meeting up with my Thai friends for a Chinese Buffet. Lau's do a Hot Pot buffet, lots of different dishes to share. Very tasty, very reasonable prices, highly recommend.

Felt really dirty, cheap tables, pushing to get to to the food, I'd save your money and go to a nice waiter service restaurant. Won't be back

After bad publicity I decided to give this restaurant a chance. As a family we had eaten there for a number of years, firstly the choice of food was very limited which wasn't the best. Secondly my brother was eating a chicken wing, when he...More
