I love this restaurant, the choice is enormous and the food tastes great. On the times i have visited it has not been busy, which is a shame considering the value for money and great food. They are pretty knowledgeable about food intollerances ie gluten, lactose and nuts. Only complaint is that the restaurant often seems cold perhaps that is... More

First of all let me say that the food is really good, however they advertise an unlimited buffet. This is what we went for which wasn't a buffet but you could choose from the set menu. Now my idea of unlimited is eat as much as you can... You get a mixed platter for starters and then a choice of... More

Came here in preference to the various chain restaurants at Cheshire Oaks, and was so glad we did. I'd been many times before in its previous incarnations, and loved it, happy to say it's still great as an oriental restaurant. Lovey fast service and beautiful food in generous portions. Reasonable prices. Will visit again.

This pub/restaurant specializes in Chinese and Thai cuisine. And what a great job they make of it. From the impeccable premises (including the toilets) to the friendly, attentive staff, the spacious car park and, of course, the superb menu of delicious dishes, they hit the nail on the head. The prices are very reasonable (except for the eye-watering £3.60 for... More

We visited here for the first time after reading the various reviews on Trip Advisor. We were slightly apprehensive but thought we would give it a try. We managed to book a table with an hour or so notice on a Saturday night. The menu was extensive and the staff were welcoming. We ordered a number of main meals between... More

Myself and my girlfriend enjoyed a decent meal here. Food was very tasty and portion sizes are large and reasonably priced. Staff also very attentive, we have been a few times now and not had a negative experience yet and will no doubt go again.

The two of us dropped in here early evening a few months back & had a lovely meal and had been saying for a while we'd come back. Decided to try the all you can eat Chinese and Thai 4 course Buffet for a family birthday today. You choose from the menu one course and one dish at a time... More

Ordered a chinese take away from Dunham Arms. Menu is pretty generic but covers all options and even offers a bespoke choice. Telephone manner of staff was quite poor but could be paid for over the phone. Order arrived quite quickly which gave concerns over the freshness of the dishes, however, they were all very tasty although quite heavily bulked... More
