    We go every year to celebrate my Daughters birthday as she passed away 12 years ago but was always going to Buffet Island whenever she went for food. The food is ok, not bad but quite average mainly. The variety of puddings are very very limited verging on poor. Staff friendly but management don’t seem to trust anyone I believe. It’s always money upfront for some reason. Maybe it’s a bad experience on their part

    We spent our Sunday evening here we had a fantastic time .. the choice of food was fantastic and varied The only complaint I would have would be the parking as there seems to be less parking required for a restaurant of this size but that aside I would definitely recommend buffet island

    Absolutely fantastic food great price and value we had a wonderful time with our family the only thing I would say is meet and greet needs sorting it was bedlum when we arrived and noone spoke to us it ended up some paid before entering and others didn't so I would strongly suggest a better system for seating people and getting them to pay before seating . The waitress had to come round checking all the tables after we'd all sat down

    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?
