Second visit to this below average restaurant. Bland food, limited choice and overpriced. Won't be going back and to be honest wished we had got a takeaway.

My partner and i decided to go to Chinese buffet for early meal as weather was so drab. All you can eat £14 good value. Staff polite and friendly food hot and tasty. Would recommend to anyone.

Called just prior to New Year. Restaurant only 1/3 full, yet kept us waiting in bar area for 15 min (??) Food is ok. Nothing amazing. Goodish selection, though quantity not quality. Unfortunately, calling here has become a bit of a ritual, so will prob be here 31st or 1st of Jan. Whoopee !

Over the years I have used lots of Chinese buffet restaurants as often I can stay within budget and have a bit of choice. This restaurant is similar to many lots of choice but none of it particularly inspiring but then what do... More

I went to this restaurant with my son for his birthday. Our server was extremely pleasant and friendly and after my son had told her that it was his birthday she discreetly asked me if I would like a "birthday plate" for him as a surprise. There was no charge for this, it was brought out during dessert and happy... More
