Long-time takeaway customer. The food is lovely but has become too expensive over time. We thought we would treat ourselves tonight. We ordered £50 worth of food. When my Kung-Po arrived, the container it came in was only half-full. Previously, we've tolerated the higher prices as the food is good but half a container's worth? As a large family we've... More

Take my daughter here fairly often as she enjoys it. The selection of starters on offer is quite good though the main dishes are decidedly average. Great for a lunchtime treat

We visit there regularly because they cater for Gluten Free. The staff are wonderful. Excellent service. Really good food. In actual fact we have been going there for years. Taken colleagues from work. Everyone has always been satisfied.

The service is not great, although it is only a buffet. My partner and I found the waitress fairly funny, as she didn't really speak much, just kinda grunted at us!! The buffet is quite small so you have to time it right otherwise the best of it will be hovered up by other diners. To be fair they do... More

The Buffett lunch was delicious, I've not had Chinese food for a long time as I find the sauces can be quite gloopy. However the food here was gorgeous, so tasty we kept going back for more. The staff were really welcoming and helpful, creating a nice atmosphere.

I'd here with my mum previously and this time I was with my wife and brother and his wife plus mum again. We weren't disappointed the food was excellent and the staff so friendly and helpful. They all work really hard and deserve to do well. For what we had the bill was very reasonable and although my daughter who... More

After walking past Pond Quay restaurant a good few times since I moved to this areai thought I would try out the Lunchtime Buffett. There wasn't much variety, some of the food was cold and overall pretty standard in taste. There was a poor attempt at a trifle which had been sat out on the buffet table for hours and... More
