    Restaurant felt clean and lots of staff cleaning and replenishing but food was unfortunately beyond mediocre and despite a low price still not worth the money. We won't be returning.

    It is a lovely restaurant on different levels but wheelchair friendly. The smells are enticing when you enter, service is quick and friendly throughout. You are invited to help yourself and off you go. The choice is large from sushi to chips, crispy beef to chocolate fountain, and you can go back as many times as you likes! I highly recommend you visit this restaurant.

    The food was soooo nice! Really liked it. The staff were so on the ball, smiley and polite. £15.99 for all you can eat buffet including desert options is not bad in my opinion. Especially with considering the range and quality of the food on offer. Only criticisms are that they had a sushi section and so I ate a bit of salmon and it was awful. It tasted of nothing except for maybe chemicals. Not sure how they got salmon to taste of nothing to be quite honest. And they could have done with an accessible bin as they had a lot of sticky food so afterwards I'd use a hand sanitiser type of thing and a napkin but have no were to throw it away. But the cooked food was delicious, service was excellent, the place looked nice (good temperature as well but oddly hot right in front of the door) and I'll definitely go there again

    Great good, helpful staff. Was great experience until payment, where they charged adult price for my 9 year old saying she was too tall to be classed as a child. She suffers medically with gigantism and was very upset at how she was treated whilst I was paying. She even insisted that she was 9 and gave her date of birth. The cost wasn't the issue, it was that my daughter felt like she was being called a liar.

    We arrived a little early but were shown to our seats and the drinks order was taken straight away. The full range of food was available (although I didn't see any king prawns) and was to the usual high standard. We always celebrate special occasions here and will continue to do so. Well done Buffet Island!

    Apart of the personal all the place was a mess . Poor variety of food and the food is too greasy. I didn’t enjoy and if this place didn’t change something I would not go back again. Overall cheap food for a normal charging price….

    Our visit to the restaurant was a lovely and polite environment, I have a large family with small children and the environment was on point! Even though it was a Friday evening the atmosphere was peaceful! The staff was very accommodating and polite especially the waiter who went out of his way to insure our table was served and cleared at correct intervals. The manager asked if our experience was ok and to be honest it was outstanding we all fully enjoyed my daughters 18th birthday. Would definitely come again A great thank you to the young gentleman waiter for his impeccable service!!!

    Food was cold and several dishes not cooked properly. Restaurant was also cold. When I reported this a member of staff said they would make this known but thought they would contact me at least to apologise. Not sure if I will ever go again. I have always been a loyal customer.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, food is mostly delicious. The ambiance was nice, although it was really busy and we had to wait quite a bit to get seated. Drinks are priced really well and were nice. We got served straight away if we needed more drinks. The only thing I can fault is the cleanliness of the self serve food stations. I know it was very busy but the spoons could have been changed over more often as they were very greasy. Overall an enjoyable experience.
