We came here Friday evening and waited over 20 minutes just for a waiter to bother to come over to our table and ask us what drinks we would like...
The baskets of bland prawn crackers were abundantly shoved under our noses twice over, I felt like it was to encourage us to divulge the lot thus filling us up before our meals.
Felt like we were in a cattle market too many hungry people and slow service.
Saying that the dishes (once finally started to arrive) were hot and tasty.
Whilst being an eat as much as you like venue the final bill was almost £90.00 for
2 adults 2 children and 4 diet cokes!
We won't be returning, mainly for this reason
as we didnt feel the meal and service was worth the expensive final bill.

I have been here once before and absolutely loved it but today was totally amazing and the vegetarian crispy duck and deep fried sweet and sour tofu was out of this world and we were all totally stuffed x as a vegetarian I usually struggle to find something different but today i was amazed x the whole party were totally stuffed and my 10 year old loved it x the place was packed to the rim and the staff were run off their feet with serving as well as answering phone orders and they were polite and professional x we love coming here when visiting my parents

We visited for their Sunday afternoon all you can eat buffet. Food was pretty good, not the best but I've had much worse. The staff as mostly disinterested in helping, hardly a smile cracked the whole time our party of seven were there. They missed several parts of our order over different times of our visit, but it was quickly rectified each time.

Worth visiting if you want a fixed price meal, hopefully the staff will be happier next time.

I met up with some friends I hadn’t seen for over 12 years. We decided on this restaurant as, not only do we like Chinese food, but they have round tables, making conversation much easier. And we had a lot to catch up on! The food was good. We had the “all you can eat” choice at £19 per person. We each had a couple of starters, then Mongolian Lamb and Peking duck, then some mains with rice and noodles. Good value at that price. It was all very tasty, apart from the lamb, which was quite fatty and gristly. One star lost because of that. Also some of the staff could have been friendlier. They just seemed to be there to do their job and not for the customers. Very short on even a smile! Apart from those two minor things, we all had a very nice evening.
