Bought sweet n sour chicken which was awful and ended up in the bin. There was a tiny, ugly, pieces of chicken in large doughy balls which tasted old. The duck was just slices of tough duck covered in a slimey sauce which ended up in the bin. The sweet and sour sauce was a watery vinigar, tomato sauce which... More

I ordered a take away for two from here yesterday evening. It was ordered very early before 6pm so we thought it would be quick. We were told about half hour wait. 45 minutes later when it still hadn't arrived we called back. No apology was given & we were simply fobbed off with the excuse there was a traffic... More

Went here last night for the first time. Very well priced. New clean tiled floors, new seats and newly decorated all through. The food was beautiful! Freshly cooked and presented beautifully. I will be back!

Tricky one this ... All you can eat 9/10 Atmosphere. 2/10 No one's fault just a very quite evening in the restaurant. No customers no bustle no nothing. Food OK but felt like dining in a library. Almost felt Awks ordering. Shame the best option here on that particular night would be the take away.

There was nothing wrong with the food although maybe a little too salty. After seeing the take away menu before going i was slightly disappointed by the buffet menu! There was not the choice i was expecting . i have also ordered takeaway last night and there was an item missing. Not a bad place just needs some work

Never have I ever been to a restaurant where you are left standing and not greeted and sat at a table, so left feeling awkward we sat at a table ourselves, we still weren't acknowledged until my husband caught he's eye to which he just nodded, still waiting, anyway to cut a long frustrating story short we had our starters...
