When we went in we had to wait around for staff to come and seat us. The dining area was basic. Each starter we had chosen was cold. The mains dishes were satisfactory. Choice of desserts wasn't great either. Had to wait around again at the till to pay.

As Chinese buffets go this one is ok. The place could be cleaner and more staff would be helpful especially when wanting to order from the fresh cooked section. Freshly made crepes go down well. Great for family with fussy eaters as they can try new things.

Always as a hungover student. Good filling food with some decent tastes. Wouldn't me much more than hangover food for me though. Decent price for the food.

I went quite late on a weekday and wanted some variety without maxing out my credit card in an a la carte restaurant. I'd spotted China China by chance as it's not on the main food strip in the area. They offer a takeaway option where you fill a small takeaway container for 3.99. I was going to go for... More

We come here regularly and have never been disappointed. The food is always excellent and the extra service provided by Tata at the Teppanyaki is brilliant. She makes a fantastic spicy chicken to order, the best in Belfast. All the staff are so friendly. Well done to all

Regrettable decision to come here. Food very bland and tasteless, hardly ate anything. Cheesecakes are cheap value products. Kids enjoyed pancakes but that's about it. Very dated decor. Would not return

Called in here on a Sunday and it was like a cattle market! Our table was right in front of the (very limited) buffet so we were constantly being knocked into and our chairs tripped over. The whole place was grubby, unkempt and poorly organised. Cheap yes, tasty? Not so much. Worth it to spend a few pounds extra for... More
