Visited here with some friends who live locally, we all had the all-you-can-eat for £17.95 option, and very good it was too! The staff were great and the food was lovely, I only wish I could have found room for more. Once desserts and drinks were factored in it wasn't cheap, but I'd rather pay a little more for good...

My family have both eaten in the restaurant and had copious takeaways over the years, with at least one takeaway a week in recent months. We have never been disappointed with the quality of the food and apart from fridays (where they're extremely busy) our food has always been ready within 15 minutes of ordering.. the only thing I would...

Expensive food that wasn't all that! Dry duck slimey veg yuk, £54 for 2 people & not much food, staff are really serious & unfriendly, seemed to be an atmosphere as 2 staff were whispering clearly about someone who's upset them, unprofessional right by our table! Lacks atmosphere & they are not at all welcoming, feel a little ripped off... More

We get take away here all the time and been for a meal too as a couple. I raved about it to my family to go tonight. We normally have the set meal B and I always take home food for the next day. We asked for 2 set B meals. We were given 4 of the starter and duck... More

Have been a couple of times before and food is always very good. Hot and plenty of it. Set meal for 2 is our favourite. Attentive staff and quick service. Only down point is the price of beer. Will definately be going back

My wife and I shared dinner with a couple of friends in this very busy resturant, very polite & quick service we shared two set meals, Timing of service was good, and the quality & taste of everything on menu was faultless. Would certainly recommend this resturant But make sure to book first. Thank you Crown City great evening !!!

Came here for Mother's Day so it was amazingly busy but it was excellent. The food, considering it's a buffet menu was cooked fresh and brought out as starters, mains etc. The service was very good and the restaurant itself was very well presented. I will be going back some time very soon for more oriental delights!

Had a buffet (order repeatedly from menu) lunch on bank holiday Monday. Food was incredible. Puts takeaways to shame. My father in law is Chinese chef at a restaurant and does brilliant tasty dishes. This place is as good. Servings are small and your eyes betray your stomach, with initial impressions being "that won't fill me up". My greedy wife... More

As a family we use the Crown City regularly and have always been extremely satisfied. In particular the Sunday/lunchtime buffet option is great as the food is cooked fresh, nothing under lights and is brought to the table as you order. Starters and main course can be repeated with no extra charge. Food is always top quality and staff are... More

If this is the best in Kent then I feel sorry for the Kentish folk. Don't get me wrong it was ok and possibly just above average but if you want a proper Chinese meal get up north to Manchester. The restaurant was clean and well appointed and was quite busy when we dined. The staff were very friendly and... More
