As there was 8 of us we were given a table upstairs, downstairs seemed quite busy. We asked our waiter a few questions about drinks but he was clueless and had to keep running up and down stairs to ask the bar. Finally ordered drinks and some of us went off to get our food while others waited with bags.... More

Met colleges at Red Hot Buffet, who had been waiting at the bar for 1/2 hour to be served a drink, during this time it was noted buffet was after poor quality, and it was not being refilled as required meaning there was little choice. The place was packed. Also noted customers walking out...we followed and choose to eat elsewhere... More

Staff seemed a bit aloof but the food was ok. Lots to choose from. The guy serving at the ice cream bar looked like he could have smiled at bit. Also too many mirrors. It made things a bit confusing when walking around.

We were seated by a big table and then told us we were in a poor position for other people getting out to the buffet. There was quite a limited choice of food considering the style of restaurant and we found the signage to be poor to find each cuisine. The food was not very hot although it did taste... More

December 1st booked a table on line for 2 no problem what so ever, we turned up at 15:45 for the booked time and we were told they were not open and to come back at 17:00 for our meal. This was no good as we were going to see a film after. We decided to go some where else... More

We were recently on a course in Cardiff as a large group. Obviously we wanted to go out and get some food all together, which often can be tricky with lots of people due to taste, diet and budget. This place makes it easy. Lots of different food all of a good standard, help yourself and tuck in. Buy drinks... More

Ate here Monday lunchtime for the first time and I can definetely say it will be the last.Worst food we've ate.All food between Luke warm and cold,Probably explains the food hygiene rating of 1 (MAJOR IMPROVEMENT NEEDED).Cold slop on a plate.total waste of money.
