There was a large choice of food however much of it had clearly been cooked a long time before we got there. The quality was was not awful by any means, but it was to expensive for what it was.

Been to world buffets in the past and while they are not entirely my cup of tea I have always managed to eat a fairly good meal. This place is dreadful, very little choice and completely tasteless dishes. Several sauces or salsas on the side...More

Haven't been to Buddha Belly for a while and really enjoyed our visit. Good food, amazing choice, family friendly. Only comment is that it is a shame they don't offer refillable drinks. Will definitely be back.

Nice atmosphere, space to move and good attentive staff. The selection of food is great and a lot is cooked in front of you and you can choose ingredients. We are on weight management programmes and always find lots of lovely things to eat here...More

Don't think you need to book and I'm sure it's a set price - was when we went .
I would like to know how can they be opened to the public with how dirty the toilets are and how cold the food was when it should have been a hot or warm and the food I ate had hair in it! And was told it's a buffet you should expect that!!! Ice cream smelt funny and hardly no one spoke English so was hard to communicate if needed to ask something
