This establishment has now closed and has ceased to function. It follows in the footsteps of the other businesses in the town which have disappeared due to lack of customers.

Varied quality of food, miserable/ignorant management, and ridiculous mark ups on drink prices. It will not be missed.

I enjoyed the food when I came here, value for money, clean, friendly staff, think maybe just a bigger variety of different food available

Food was dry and cold, went about half 7 ish, we had to ask for our drinks again and it was very quiet. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone and I won't be going back there. Spoilt our tea out.

I went to Kylin on a Sunday, so for £8.95 I came back out nicely stuffed on all-you-can-eat buffet. Ayce pays off for me, as I eat a lot, at those buffets. So, I tried a little bit of nearly everything that was available. Non...More
