Great choice if you are starving and love Chinese (although they do have English alternatives, particularly Sunday where there's a Sunday lunch buffet style). Somewhere to take the family to keep them feeling full all day.

Still amazing, unlike some others I could name. Fresh food and plentiful. I love it here and visit quite regular. Great for families and small children too. Buffet Sunday lunches are also available, I'm yet to try these however.

Phoned up and asked if catered for gluten free and told yes. Went with family and told I could have rice or chips. I did complain and manager arranged for one small plate of chicken and veg. Other food cold not a place I would go back to

The food was pretty average for Chinese. A lot of the meat a little fatty and over cooked. Choice for kids was good and the price (£25 for 2 adults 2 kids and a round of drinks) was pretty good to. The staff were all very friendly and attentive. Kids loved the ice cream machine but other that this the... More

Recently visited for a family members birthday. The staff were great and let us decorate the table with banners and a few balloons. Food was lovely as always, it was strangely busy for a Wednesday night but that can't be helped. We've visited the restaurant several times and we will always return. Great value for money.

Went with friends and had plenty to choose from. Virtually everything you could want from a chinese buffet including duck pancakes. Pleasant service and various courses. Would definitely go again.

Payed another visit this past sat. Most of the food was good and freshly prepared however the teriyaki bar was staffed by someone who could not speak English at all and when we pointed to the fish it was reheated again and to say the least you could have soled your shoe with it sadly. However that apart the food... More

We are regular visitors to my Shanghai. There are always plenty of variety to choose from. I am usually not a large eater but can't resist many of the dishes. We usually go early evenings or in Sundays and the food always look fresh, not yesterday's left overs that some buffets seem to serve. All of the staff are always... More
