As a Thai, I enjoy meeting up with my Thai friends for a Chinese Buffet. Lau's do a Hot Pot buffet, lots of different dishes to share. Very tasty, very reasonable prices, highly recommend.

Felt really dirty, cheap tables, pushing to get to to the food, I'd save your money and go to a nice waiter service restaurant. Won't be back

Good choice for cheapish eats. Usual selection of Chinese dishes with the addition of Japanese dishes and sushi. Very much what most of these serve yourself buffet places offer. Good choice for a well priced meal provided you're not expecting anything gourmet.

My daughter and I have had many positive experiences dining at Lau's. Unfortunately our last visit on 21st December at lunchtime was rather disappointing. We were seated on the upper level and our table seemed fine at first. We ordered our drinks and decided to go down to enjoy the sushi section first. Lovely first start but on returning found...

Went here for a lunch treat whilst on a shopping trip with my daughter. What a great choice. Lovely fresh buffet. Eat as much as you want. Such tempting choices. Great friendly service and tremendous value for money.

Not great, sums up my whole experience: Food, not great. Service, not great. Atmosphere, not great. I had fairly low expectations, but still... Not great.

After bad publicity I decided to give this restaurant a chance. As a family we had eaten there for a number of years, firstly the choice of food was very limited which wasn't the best. Secondly my brother was eating a chicken wing, when he bit into it, it was undercooked and raw. The manager took the food off the... More
