Great value of unlimited buffet. The sweetcorn soup (with seaweeds) and spring rolls are very nice. We always come here before movie. Couldn’t complain about anything.

Good cheap food & drink, but customer service needs improving slightly. Friendly staff though. Would go once or twice a month to a year.

Took the family for a lunchtime buffet, what a dump!! Dirty restaurant in need of some serious tlc, food very average but on the plus side the chicken nuggets were acceptable according to my three year old! Cheap and dreary.

Recently came here for some dinner before heading to the cinema with friends. Food choice was brilliant - I especially liked the crispy duck and pancake rolls! Staff were friendly and service was quick, will be back again!
