Our booking was for 6pm and by 6.30 you couldn't move around the food. People pushing past to try and get food, and food running out.

Lovely food, lovely service. This place is an old favourite of ours & we haven’t been able to attend for a long time due to Covid-19 so it was nice to come back. A lot of good memories here.

Good food pleasant staff, only thing we didn't like was the staff walking up and down waiting for you to finish to take plates away.

Haven't been for years but was disappointed in the English choice of food available, previously when came many years ago the range for children and non-Chinese eaters was alot better. Sadly we left without eating and had to go elsewhere. I do recommend checking out the menu before visiting.

I have eaten at this restaurant dozens of times, simply can't fault the food, i would go as far as to say its some of the best quality Chinese food i have eaten, however i do have one serious complaint, and its not the fault of the restaurant its the fault of the people who eat there, let me explain!

I am sick to the back teeth of parents who allow their children to run around like animals in places like restaurants, with no concern for other users, they push in drop food everywhere have no table manners, if that's the way they allow their children to behave at home then fine i don't care but please keep your feral animals under control when you bring them in to public places.

Teach them some table manners
Teach them respect for others

There was a time not long ago if you were going out to dinner you made an effort to at least try to look clean and tidy, and why is it when a large group arrive it feels like the Aliens have arrived you don't own the place show some respect to other diners and to hard working staff who deserve better.

God i love this place but i have to say some, not all but some of the people who were eating on Saturday night 18-09-2021 were a disgrace. Credit to the staff who work hard an do their best, were i the manager some people would never get foot inside the door.

Really good food very fair prices and great staff, some very poor customers, i would recommend this place every day just choose you time and day carefully

We booked a table for 7. We didn’t get a table until 7:30 by 8pm the waiters were waiting for us to finish our food because they had booked our table for a party even though the website states we get the table for 1hr 30minutes. They clearly over booked, was not a nice environment to be in. Very noisy and was not worth my Saturday evening.

i know is't not Buffet Islands fault, but bloody screaming kids that the parents can't control is so annoying while you're trying to eat and have a conversation of your own.
possibly a kids area, or quiet area could be set aside?

Buffet selection was OK but not as good as we’ve had there in the past. The desserts were very poor though. The cheesecake was frozen solid and when I say solid, I mean you would need a saw to get through it

Lovely did. As a vegetarian there's a good choice. Desserts I think could be better but still managed fit some in.
Was noisy buy expected at earlier sittings she seating was tight. Trying to squeeze post people. Service was good.
Overall a good meak, quite reasonable on food prices but pop prices I thought expensive

It was for a birthday celebration. We pre booked saying birthday meal to then get their and have no parking at all , bare in mind their was 10 of us. To then be rudely told to park on the street somewhere else. So rude… to then be quashed into a corner where if we got up to get food we had to ask the next table to get up. Nobody asked us if was okay just pure rude ignorance except when they wanted the bill. Oh toilets are disgusting as-well.
