Personally ive been twice now. I wasn't impressed the first time but thought id give it another go. Sorry i bothered. The food wasn't piping hot & although it was lunch time & just opening there wasnt much set out. The desserts looked bashed about. Doubt ill go again....disappointed.

Can be very busy especially during holidays and at weekends. Been a few times now and the food is generally good with plenty of choices for the adults and kids alike. Soft drinks now come with free refills. Biggest gripe would be parents that think a busy restaurant is a great place to let their kids run around sticking their... More

If you've ever been here before, you know exactly what you're getting. Its not about the quality, its about quantity and range. You pay just short of £20 for all the food and soft drinks you can handle. If you're 6ft 5 and are a little bit glutinous like myself: this becomes a personal challenge. But as I near my... More

I have visited here on a number of occasions, and for the price you will struggle to find the variety and quality of food that is on offer. They have samples of Japanese, Indian, Chinese, British and Italian food.The price includes unlimited soft drinks, hot drink and puddings. Lunch times are cheaper but, as you would expect, it is a...

There have been some considerable improvements since we last visited this restaurant under its previous ownership. Gone are the long bench tables and tables are configured to suit the size of the party The broad range of food is good value and well cooked - the lamb curry and crispy pork were very tasty and the large king prawns were...

I went to this restaurant with some family and friend two weeks ago and we were meet with an unfriendly staff at the door that bossed us around I can remember any of the staff having a smile on their faces, though I understand how extremely hectic the job must be. There were so many food to choose from my... More

There is a large choice, but the quality can vary and there is a lot of chicken dishes. It's more suited to families I'd say than a group of 20 somethings

Food was ok. 1st time there, well organised and staffing was good. Very great communication and for £20 it was great company. Lots of varieties including free drinks, I think an hour and 45mins is too less of a time for a meal. I felt a bit rushed and that was the downside Overall I was pleased.

Have to say that this was my first time here. A bit confusing how they manage seating and it took a while to get sorted. There was a great selection of food and the staff although very busy were helpful when asked something. Would suggest that you may have to visit a few times to get to know your way... More
