Called here after doing a Duck Tour on the Thames the same day. 3rd September 2016. The food looked appetising in the window and the place wasn't empty which told us the food must have quick turn over so will be keeping it hot b fresh. My partner had a few noodles and said they were OK but could have been hotter. I had a bit of most things and it was quiet tasty but I agree could of been hotter. The whole place gave you the impression of one of them Grotty Takeaways from the 70,s and you can tell it must of been an old like tea room cafe in The past the way it was set out. After reading a list if rules that resemble the do,s n don't,s of entering a prison you are free to go up with Plate that's more the size of a saucer to get your food. Rules of the House. (1) any food left weighing 100grs left will be charged at £2.00. (2) No food n drink to be fetched into restaurant. (3) Children to be supervised at all times. (This is one rule I did applaude). (4) No cards taken only cash. (5) Max time to eat food 1half hours. Like I say I'm surprised you didn't have to sign the official secrets act as you entered. Service for drinks was fast and paying wasn't a problem £3.50 for 70cl bt of sparkling water. £7.95 for buffet style food.
Would I return mmmmm possibly not but for fast and cheap I guess it appeals to some people..

This is an all you can eat restaurant. Service was abrupt and they looked at me and just gave me English cutlery rather offering me a choice. I noticed that they gave anyone who looked Oriental a choice fork or chopsticks but anyone else just got given a fork. They tried to persuade me to drink alcohol and were very clearly not happy when I only wanted sparkling water and suggested even then I might prefer beer - which obviously was more expensive. It is clear that they make their money on drinks. Food was edible but I have eaten far better at all you can eat restaurants. Due to it being self service and the fact that the staff spent more time talking to each other than being attentive to the customers I did not give a tip - this was commented on by the lady at the till which I found exceedingly rude. Will not be back

Really bad experience.
People wasting time trying to fill-up their plate to avoid another queue.
Queue is because of these people.
All you can eat become really not helpful.

The food was excellent. I got Chef's special recommendation Grilled Prawn with spicy sauce. My friends eat the standard Pad Thai.
We ate them in a hurry because we had to get the scheduled train to London.

The lighting of the restaurant was setting up darker compare to some other restaurant we visited. It was hardly to read read the menu.

The staff were all Thai look, professional and efficient.
