Been coming here for a few years now, beginning to feel it's losing it edge though. Everything used to be spot on.... food, service, decor the lot. Just feel now it's gradually going downhill, don't get me wrong by all means try it, still value for money it's just losing its edge I'm afraid.

Not really fond of buffets usually but my opinion over May Sum is positive. Better food quality than other buffets around (the best one found so far) with a correct price. Despite several comments, food was not bad even for someone used to asian food like me. Service was nice but I would be anxious in case of crowded room.

Took a year 11 reward trip here, all boys with big appetites. They were stuffed when we left. We all had plenty to eat and what we had was very tasty. The waiting staff were quick to clear away and friendly. I would highly recommend. Good value for money.

Had a family Sunday lunch here. Grandchildren loved it because there is lots of choice for them, not to mention the ice cream machine for multiple visits. Service was good, taken straight to a table, an order for drinks completed and instructions on how to collect food given. The food was hot, quite tasty with lots of choice for both... More

Was very well priced, staff seemed so stretched thin as it was incredibly busy but still polite and helpful. Food was what you would expect from a Chinese buffet, poor lay out of the buffet meant long queues for food you didn't even want. It was like a mad rush everywhere, children running wild, loud atmosphere completely fine unless you... More

My fiancée and I visit May Sum's at least once a month. For those that don't know, it's a fully licensed all you can eat buffet Chinese restaurant. The restaurant is always kept clean and tidy with a little troop of waitresses always milling about clearing away empty plates. The selection and wide variety of foods is stunning, well cooked...

With 4 hungry sons "dying " due to lack of sustenance, a buffet seemed a good choice. This wasn't our first visit so were hoping for a repeat performance of our previous visit over 2 years ago when we left happy and definitely not hungry. Yet again they produced the goods. Despite our party of 6 arriving at 6.30pm on... More
