We ate here on a Friday evening. I am a big fan of these multi cuisine buffet restaurants. However, i must say this is one of the worst I have visited. Despite this, I found a small selection of food to be half decent. The food is mOre than edible across the spectrum and probably suitable for children. However, for... More

Visited with friends at the weekend. Service was good, and efficient. It suited us picking our own food and everything that each of us had we couldn't fault. Think a lot of people here expect full on service but it's a buffet style so it is what it is. Would eat there again

Excellent value for money, dishes were hot and extremely tasty plenty of options to choose from, disappointing that sushi and dim sum not on at lunchtime but the flavours and food we did have certainly made up for it. Plates were always cleared promptly . Definitely visit again next time in bath. Senior meals are discounted as well so a... More

The food was so lovely but we waited ages for drinks for children. The cooked to order staff were unwelcoming and I felt bad asking for food to be cooked. The atmosphere was just lacking compared to other world buffets - I don't know what could have been done to help - maybe music etc but just not somewhere I... More

Service good, glasses and cutlery needed attention, toilets were clean and attended too.. ( we always check out the wash rooms before eating. If unattended and grim we wouldn't eat! 🙄 Food was fresh, hot and average flavours for the price, wouldn't bother with the puddings but the fresh fruit was great! Suited us today and probably would go again.

Jimmy's is very popular at the weekend but much quieter Monday to Thursdays. The food is good but at times some dishes can be only luke warm. There is a lot of different dishes to choose from but you can just have tasters of them, if you are strong willed. The best dish, I think, is the choose yourself raw... More

Nothing fancy about this restaurant and service is average. Glasses weren't clean. We went for lunch and not all stations were open. All the stations where they cook the food in front if you were closed. Pizza was dry and overdone. Desserts were awful - stale cakes, ice cream had crunchy bits of ice in it, cold chocolate fountain -... More

We walked in and I thought here we go this is gonna be a disaster, in all fairness all the food we had was very nice in flavour, I think worst for me was the service was rubbish, no clear instructions on how the place operated, staff were pretty rubbish apart from the odd one, that said I would go...

We went today (8th November) for lunch and all I can is that it was awful! Most of the food was not available, there were no clear signs of where to go for anything, the spring roles were soggy and they've stopped doing the really cool ice cream thing where they hammer in sweets for you. The staff were also... More

We eat here quite a lot as there is always something that everyone will enjoy. It's a very busy restaurant where you can eat as much as you like for your money and it is well priced. It has to be said, many people do actually eat as much as they like!! They walk in, and roll out! Quite like... More
