    This is the best China buffet I have been to. Visited here last weekend and to say that it was the middle of January, typically a quiet time for restaurants, every table was full. The food was lovely and regulary replaced and all the usual suspects, curries, foo young, chop suey, oyster sauce, chow main, rices, soups and sundries were present. My favourites were the duck pancakes, chicken and sweetcorn soup, prawn toasts and a crispy chicken in peking sauce.

    The only fault I could pick was that the draught lager was flat but there was an offer on bottled lagers, so that would be the way forward. Staff were friendly and quick to clear plates etc between courses. There were five of us and we all had 2/3 drinks each with some drinking wine and two with licquers - £80 total bill! Bargain! Will visit again soon.

    Everything you expect from a buffet. Some good, some bad and some in between
    Duck was mint, the price was reasonable (Get there before 6pm) and the staff were fantastic.
    Toilets are hard to find though! haha

    Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Can get busy during weekends, but that's only to be expected! Not too pricey, but there is plenty of choice when the prices do go up after a certain time. The waiting staff are always great to my daughter when we go - a nice touch! Only minor quibble is that the tables are too high!

    I am not a big fan of all you can eat chinese buffets, so When I was to first visit here in December I was not excited at all. I have to say I got a pleasant shock. I really enjoyed all the food that I piled up on my plate! The soup was really tasty and piping hot, plenty of duck pancakes, lots of meat dishes including mussels, chicken and beef. For Desserts there was black forest gateau, strawberry cheesecake, fresh fruit and ice cream. The staff quickly take away your plate and are helpful. On the down side the draught beer and lager was not too good, we had ordered 2 pints of John smiths and 2 half of lagers - everyone of us left our drinks and got a bottle of wine instead. I think the price for the buffet was £10.50 per person, a little more than the likes of soho, but worth it. I think the food is better, the restaurant decorated a hundred times better and it seems cleaner. I would not have a problem going back at all and look forward to it. But a word of warning - inside is really cold, so I would recommend wearing something a little warm.

    A really nice place for birthdays etc,not to formal but plenty of food and chat to be had here. We went for around 6.30pm and there wasn't many people in, but I would imagine it would be full later on.

    iv been to red china on a lunch time also on a nite. on the lunch time the food was only warm and some of the food was cold so made me wonder how long the food had been standing and they were slow to fill up the empty dishes this also made me think the food had been standing for quite a while., the selection of food isnt the best at lunch time the meat dishes had no meat in most of them..
    but some of my friends asked me to go back as it was a birthday i found going after 8 pm there was a better selection of food but were still slow to fill up the dishes, the mussels with sauce had no mussels in it also again some of the meat dishes had no meat in them. so you end up just getting things you didnt really want. if they could keep the meal dishes filled up and the food hot not just warm this would be worth a try. but i dont think i will be trying this again.
    so if you not to bothered about only just warm food and empty dishes so you cant have what food you went for then give it a go.
    hope this helps.
