This is a rather small Chinese buffet with a display which is a bit smaller than is usual for similar establishments. My experience was not entirely brilliant in that, in spite of requesting Diet Coke without ice twice, it duly arrived full of ice. The saving grace of the restaurant is that it is cheaper than its main competitors.

Dear oh dear. From the minute I walked in not a member of staff addressed me at the door. Eventually shown to table. Then waiter walks away. Very thirsty and no drink. Despite asking staff several times wasn't treated to the King service. Coat is on and I leave. Manager then shouts at me at door. 'You need to pay... More

For £8.95 you get as much as you want - there's soups, starters, mains, rices, noodles and desserts. It's all replaced at regular intervals and is fresh and hot. It's exactly what you'd expect from a buffet - fast turn around and staple Chinese food. Yes it's self service and the staff are there to clear away the plates, but... More

We were spending the weekend in Glasgow and having previously had many meals at this restaurant which were acceptable, we decided to revisit it. When we arrived the restaurant was only half full. My wife decided to have some Hot & Sour soup, the container was empty! we brought this to the attention of the waitress, who's only job was... More

Unprepossessing almost alarming exterior (purple), unprepossessing interior, but relly good tasty fresh-cooked food and wonderful value. Unlike some buffets there is a good choice, tasty meat and vegetarian dishes, starters, pudding (gateaux, fruit ice cream) all included in the basic price. It is nearly always pretty full, which tells its own story, but I have never felt crowded. The staff... More

From the outside this Chinese all you can eat buffet doesn't look that appealing and to be honest the largely clean but untidy interior had me wondering if the under £10 price tag was going to make me wish I'd opted for a big Mac meal instead. Most tables were filled and in Glasgow that's a good sign; I was... More

I have used this restaurant several times on my trips to Glasgow and have never been dissapointed. Family/child friendly and regularly used by families. Recommended!
