Family buffet dinner last night. The food was fresh, tasty and plentiful. Awesome value for money. The two young hosts were friendly and helpful.

Our family have frequented this restaurant for nearly thirty years. It has always been a great price and good value for money. The ownership has changed hands a number of times, and there have been minor changes to the Buffett menu. But the food has always been of a consistently high standard. The old style "sweet & sour pork", "Fried... More

We go here all the time. I love the buffet, it is really good value and the food is really good for the price. Sometimes the young staff can be a bit funny, but that's my only complaint.

I loved the fried rice and their omelet is... More

Ok, so you know when someone says "urgh, it tasted like dog food"? It's mighty hard to believe them because really, has the person ever eaten dog food? Well, there is new power to this oft - used phrase. Especially if the person is talking about the food at this restaurant. So keeping that in mind please allow me to... More
