I used to love this place..... used to! It has gone downhill big style. Walked in.... Got pointed to a table. Ordered a Cola and a pint of water. Was told under no circumstances would I get one. After an argument I got a very small glass of room temp water. The food was all dried up, the chicken in... More

Staff rude, food quality below par and not made to feel welcome. I'm surprised some people return but I guess we don't all have some standards. Plenty of superior restaurants in the area where your custom is appreciated!

Visited here with my daughter on Saturday for the first time, lady sat us right up the back near the kitchen, seemed quite a busy wee place, we were served drinks quite quickly, most places would ask if you have been before and give a wee guide, not here, left to get on with it. Not sure if we had... More

I've been to this restaurant before and the service was always bad but food seemed authentic and tasty. Not this time! As we walked in we were given a table where the waitress just looked at us without saying a word, expecting a drinks order. We ordered and headed to the buffet, returning to find the wrong drinks at our... More

This is a rather small Chinese buffet with a display which is a bit smaller than is usual for similar establishments. My experience was not entirely brilliant in that, in spite of requesting Diet Coke without ice twice, it duly arrived full of ice. The saving grace of the restaurant is that it is cheaper than its main competitors.

Dear oh dear. From the minute I walked in not a member of staff addressed me at the door. Eventually shown to table. Then waiter walks away. Very thirsty and no drink. Despite asking staff several times wasn't treated to the King service. Coat is on and I leave. Manager then shouts at me at door. 'You need to pay... More

For £8.95 you get as much as you want - there's soups, starters, mains, rices, noodles and desserts. It's all replaced at regular intervals and is fresh and hot. It's exactly what you'd expect from a buffet - fast turn around and staple Chinese food. Yes it's self service and the staff are there to clear away the plates, but... More

We were spending the weekend in Glasgow and having previously had many meals at this restaurant which were acceptable, we decided to revisit it. When we arrived the restaurant was only half full. My wife decided to have some Hot & Sour soup, the container was empty! we brought this to the attention of the waitress, who's only job was... More
