Always incredibly busy and it's easy to see why the value for money is exceptional. Most dishes are easily as good as any Chinese takeaway and it's all you can eat with a huge selection it blows every other buffet I have been to out the water. I highly recommend trying it.

We loved the food and the freshness of it but found out when we got home that we both had a terrible reaction to what must have been the amount of MSG in the food. Hence the tastiness!! I've eaten Chinese all over the world and never experienced this type of reaction. We were flushed, had itchy skin, bloated and... More

The food was super tasty and there was a lot of variety. Particularly loved the sesame honey chicken. Great value for money, will be back again.

Nowhere near as good as it used to be,i dont think i will be returning,the food standard has dropped since it opened,and to put £2 on the price during the xmas and new year holidays is clear profiteering if you ask me as its not a chinese holiday!!

First time trying this restaurant Found it to be very busy, slightly cramped seating. Food was OK however the chicken curry seemed abit tasteless. Plenty room for group bookings and plenty choice of food. Would I go back... Yes.. Id have to skip the chicken curry though. 7 out of 10

Visited on Monday night at 8.25 , we were told that it closed in an hour which was fine . What we didn't expect was congealed food that looked like it had sat there for hours or sweeping and mopping around our table , perhaps you should discount the price for end of evening left overs ! We did point... More

I've eaten here a few times with friends. It is a large, clean all you can eat restaurant. The food is generally very good and hot! The service os OK for this type of place and all in all it's good value for what you get.

Went here for the first time last night. Was pleasantly surprised at how big it was inside as from the outside it looks small. Waited for about ten minutes to be seated it is the week before Xmas and a Saturday night at 6.00pm so I did expect it to be busy. The buffet was probably the freshest and most... More

Tried this place following a locals recommendations. An all you can eat & although it was busy when we arrived, many of the dishes were being renewed. We tried lots of varieties & all were good, fresh & tasty. The only downside for me was that the sweets were virtually all wheat based which just left the choice as ice... More
