Staff are exceptional and the food is amazing. Such a wide variety, with a charcoal grill to fry fresh pieces of meat right in front of you. Can’t put into words how amazing the dishes are, especially desserts!! for £15.99 a head 10/10 would recommend.

Not too bad for a world buffet restaurant, and seemed very popular as it was fairly full on a weekday night. The food is not a good as some local restaurants specialising in the different cuisines, but is perfectly acceptable and gives you the opportunity...More

Offered an apparently excellent buffet of a wide variety of foods. Good points - huge variety, attractive decor (but a bit canteeny), not expensive (£15.99 a head), many of the normal "main dishes" were quite nice - sweet sour chicken, pork in Thai sauce, the...More
