My kids love coming here as there is a good selection of different types of food, in a standard Chinese buffet style. Nothing special, but edible, and reasonable value.

Thank Tanya C

The food is tasty but get there early, the food is hotter, I've been early and towards the end of the lunch period when the food wasn't as hot,

Our first visit here and we were so impressed!
The choice & quality of food on offer was excellent, staff worked hard to clear tables of used plates.
The 'Grand Buffet' now starts at 6 o'clock (not 7 o'clock as one of the photos here shows). We arrived at 7 on a Tuesday evening, expecting the place to be quiet, but it was doing very good business indeed!
At £12.45 a head (I think) it's brilliant value for money. Choose soup, loads of chinese dishes,(so much meat!) some English options (chips, roast beef etc.), plus desserts including crumble, creme brulee, jelly, fresh fruit....
My only criticism would be that it doesn't have much of a Cantonese atmosphere or decor - it's more like a canteen really - but wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone.

We have been here a few times now. Sometimes it can be very busy, probably due to the reasonable price for an 'all you can eat' buffet.
The Chinese food is quite tasty and there is a good salad bar and a few puddings. Not bar value.
There are disabled toilets, 2 car parks, one off the Coast road and the other from the housing estate. We have the lunch buffet, but they have a wok area etc for the evening.

Went here for a Family meal while visiting our Daughter and meal, restaurant and staff were all very good. Excellent selection of foods (we ate at 7pm) and everything was very fresh and piping hot. Very good value for £12.50 per head. Staff were very prompt when removing used plates from the table too. Would recommend
