We stopped on our way home last night. We received a cheery welcome and were immediately given a table and drinks. The buffet was varied and tasty, but lukewarm. I can appreciate that it is difficult to keep so many dishes warm, without allowing the food to dry out. I recommend the lemon chicken and sweet chicken curry, both very... More

Arrived when the place was busy bites seated within 5 mins. Fast and friendly drink order. Place was clean. Good choice for courses .... everything clearly labelled. Go up as often as you want. Plates etc cleared quickly. Good dessert selection. Was a bit noisy but it was busy. Definitely will return.
