Absolutely the worst service and food I've had in long time. It has gone down hill over the years. The food is so bland. We complained about starters and the staff especially woman and owner who work there have massive attitude problems. Instead of apologising...More

Quite expensive for an "all you can eat" the second course came out before the first, the food was honestly disgusting. Greasy, tasteless, fatty. Not nice at all. Over priced, nowhere near what it used to be.
