We were a party of four (3 adults, 1 child). We arrived about an hour into the buffet service and found what we wanted easily. There was plenty of choice of soup/starters, mains, sweets and salad bar. Floor staff and kitchen were great. No issues as plates were lifted without long delay when we were finished with each course. The... More

Very rude servers/waiting staff. Food was terrible, not a large selection and what was there was cold. Wouldn't recommend to anyone.

All the food was sitting so long it had huge skins over the sauce. The desserts were all obviously from Iceland. The soup looked like vomit. Which is ironic because I was up all night vomiting afterwards.

I have eaten here several times & always found it to be busy, clean, great food variety, hot food, fresh & tasty. I will say that twice I have seen some of the staff carry or move food with their hands when refilling the dishes, which I am NOT a big fan off. Otherwise 100%. Highly recommended.

The Fab Four were out for lunch for a Chinese buffet The bill was certainly easy to pay We all missed mushrooms in the vegetable selection The staff were very helpful and gracious More variety and more fat free vegetables would have made sense And would have improved the overall experience

Went here tonight and not only was the food disgusting, cold barely existent as many trays were empty, a staff member picked his nose for a period of time on the restaurant floor. I wanted to refuse to pay only my partner was too embarrassed. He is now in bed sick ( coincidence or not I don't know ). Avoid... More
