I really don't know what to say other than it's a product of it environment.
Just as the area is starting to look tired and in need of desperate updating from it's 80's design and layout, The restaurant seems to follow suit.

This was one of the places to eat for many years and at it's peak getting a table used to mean booking well in advance.

Now it's a buffet restaurant that seems more akin to holiday camp food and decoration that is flat and tired.

The food now is obviously shipped in from the place on the North Circular in London whose name escapes me.

A local place for us- now buffet only. Food ok, but loud 80’s music and really dated decor. Not cheap- £40 for 3 with only 3 drinks. OH said toilets dirty. There are better places to spend your money on Sunday lunch.

We have visited the Beijing Rendezvous twice in recent months. What can one say? The lively, friendly ambience of the '90's and early noughties has evaporated.

On our first visit, we had a family meal for a dozen of us at Sunday lunchtime. While the restaurant was rammed, there was a reasonable selection of dishes. Contrast this with our visit a couple of weeks ago. We visited on a Sunday evening, four of us, with, perhaps, a dozen other diners. A poor, tired looking selection and desultory service.

There was a time when this restaurant was a favourite for dining in or take away. Those days are, sadly, long gone. There is no incentive to return.

Trestle table, wobbly, stabilised with beer mats. Storage area in full view of "reception" and bar area that looked dead. Walls in dire need of painting. Food not good or particularly bad either, just there. Not a great choice and desserts (as nearly everyone has said) is embarrassing. You can't give customers something better than a Swiss roll thing? Staff are at least attentive but are rushed off their feet. Very little to no atmosphere. Has the mood of a cheap canteen. Can't explain it - just the worst place I've ever eaten in by far. And I feel bad saying that, because it wasn't through the waiting staff not trying to please.

The restaurant was looking like a dead elephant from the car park as we arrived. We were debating whether it was open or closed. I managed to convince my wife that all will be okay, lets give it a try. At least you would expect to have a decent welcome at the main entrance hall but adding to our dilemma the entry pouch was filthy dirty and we both said "NO" at once then walked away. One review read, "if you love yourself don't go there." Who ever wrote that was 100% spot on. It's a no go area!!!!!
