Visited here in Feb, value for money, plenty of variety. Food was tasty, will visit again, only fault was the table was quite sticky, if you leaned on it, you got stuck to it. 😂

Ive been to many buffets before and the food is normally stone cold and you can tell its been sitting there for ages, however this food was still piping hot and tasted great, the staff were brilliant and the place was very clean and well presented.

A collection of bland offerings that fill a space. Little in the way of flavour and authenticity. Overpriced for what it is. That said, on the couple of occasions I've been, it's been packed so what am I to know!!

We've visited this restaurant before, and the standard is pretty consistent. We went for a Friday lunch, and it was fairly busy, but not too busy.
