Having driven by a couple of times we just had to pop in for a meal. We tried a Saturday night, we didn't book and were lucky to get a table. We went for the all you can eat buffet for £18.50. Starters came and we were a little surprised at how small the portions were but then realised the trick seamed to just keep ordering anything you want. The food came fast and furious, giving the impression it had been cooked sometime ago and reheated. Ok, for the price you pay you can live with that but the disappointment was the quality of the food which had obviously bought at a price to suit.

What can I say about our experience at this restaurant but very poor.
We opted to go for the £18.50 all you can eat menu but were left disappointed, the first plate of starters were just warm so we ordered a 2nd plate which were the same just warm and the satay chicken skewers inedible so when the waitress asked how was the food we told her so she called the owner who was very arrogant and more or less told me he has not had any other complaints and his chicken was ok even though the waitress had told me someone had complained earlier.
On to the mains and we ordered 2 sizzling dishes and Thai noodles, the noodles came out 5 mins before the other two dishes and sat going cold so we asked for it to go back and come back with our mains which were not sizzling but nice.
Ordered some more dishes and this time 3 out of 4 dishes arrived together and we finished these but the 4th dish never arrived and with no explanation either, asked for the bill and while we're were waiting to pay our table was cleared of everything including the tablecloth even though we had drinks to finish, paid the bill and left.
I understand the restaurant was busy but you pay for good food and expect a decent service and some good manners from the management

We’ve been a few times now - the last being my birthday.
Service was good.
The food was the die for! I’d definitely recommended the Deep Fried Lemon King Prawns - we ordered three lots of them!!!
