A group of 6 of us ate there on a busy night, We had been there on occasion before as couples or in smaller groups, but not when it was so busy. They do a buffet which we usually regard as good value. On this night however, they were more concerned with serving the couples and smaller tables. We were there for over 2 1/2 hours, and managed to get one course each and some second ones. The buffet courses are small, so it was a most unsatisfactory evening The service was beyone appalling. I dont blame the staff- they were under immense pressure, but the management are lacking and we paid a lot for very little that night. We haven't been back and we wont recommend it to friends, Its a pity they spoil a good idea by not staffing it on busy nights. Needless to say they were happy with our winebill. A complaint to the manager on the way out fell on disinterested ears. He simply didn't care and insisted they were busy so they couldnt cater for us. . Its dismaying to see people come after you and go before while you wait for your meal. The food is good value if you get it. Couldnt recommend a place where management are lacking..

4 of us went to eat here and at a set price for all you can eat of approx €15 pp, it was great value. There are supplements on certain dishes and everyone's favourite of duck with pancakes had a supplement of approx €4pp. I'd nearly go back just for that dish alone! It was great to find a good selection of Asian dishes at one restaurant. It was our first visit and the order system wasn't explained until we'd completed the order sheets left on our table....very confusing and overly complicated! Apparently we were doing it wrong so we had to re do the order sheet in a certain way. There's a max of 4 items per table at any one time, which is fine once you know how it works there.. The food was tasty and we will go back,

Great value for €14.80 + service each we enjoyed a variety of starters and main courses Our favourite was the beef with ginger and spring onion. We both had a very enjoyable evening. We will be back.

value amazing 14.80 plus 10% service charge for all you can eat Japanese Chinese and Thai food! the staff were amazing and the food was lovely we even decided to try the spicy tuna rolls which were too spicy for us but they didn't charge us extra for not finishing them we will be back especially on Tuesday when its half price all you can eat the only single bad thing was it was cold and both us and another table had to ask them to turn the heating up so I think their heating was broken sadly the only tiny problem

I am very surprised to see a lack of great reviews or this place. It is finally a really nice local chinese that I can go to knowing what to expect each time, which is great food great service and great value. I have been 5 times for the cook to order buffet. It never fails. 16Euro for all you ca eat from the very well varied menu. I can't falt this place. The interior is so modern and chic for a chinese. All together It's pretty impressive for a local chinese.

This restaurant purports to sell both Chinese and Japanese cuisine. I can't stress this strongly enough, DON'T ORDER SASHIMI. I can't speak to the Chinese, but the Japanese that we ordered was appalling across the board. The service was horrible but this was entirely the fault of the management. The rest of the staff was nice.
