We were in Clacton on holiday and looking for somewhere to eat dinner on a Sunday early evening. We came across the Buffalo restaurant / takeaway. So we went inside and we were surprised that the prices for eating inside the premises were very reasonable. My husband chose to sit at the back of the restaurant because he did not... More

After turning down a 1 1/2 hour wait at Toby Carvery (it was Bank Holiday weekend) we went on a food search.

If I had a mind to throw good money after bad, I would have sent some of the meat I had purchased off to be tested as I have major doubts it was lamb. Tasteless mank. All poor tasteless rubbish. Waste of money and it wasn't cheap either. Avoid.

We stopped using this take-away about 8yrs ago after a really bad meal - the food was cold and the chips were like they had been reheated untold times, it was awful. We started using another take away a fair drive away, but found that they delivered, but they've been missing items from our delivery for the last few years... More

The sit down services is excellent, staff attentive and polite, we ordered the mixed platter to share and we were both more than satisfied. Perfect place to go if you have a big appetite and like value for money.
