A bit like the McDonalds of the Oriental food world but well worth a go.

Big portions, generally pretty good food and fantastic value. Stick to the beer though, the house white was rough!

It's pretty good but they've got their work cut out to keep up with Mr Kai's 'all you can eat' offer. I know where I'd rather go. B)

Cheap and cheerful and friendly. The red wine's nifty, a lot better than I expected.

The food is consistently good and always fresh. A big plus is that none their dishes are swimming in grease. The ribs and the sweet & sour chicken come highly recommended.

You are not going to get a gourmet experience but for the money it rates as the best value on the Triangle.

I wasn't very positive about this place when they first opened, save for the fact that the awful mess of a building got refurbished. I went back in there recently, though, and they don't seem quite as bland (either that or my tastebuds have changed) and hooray, they've got rid of those backless chairs and replaced them with something a little more comfortable. Definitely in the 'cheap and cheerful' category now.

The noodle dish I ordered wasn't bad - a little greasy, but hey, that's fried noodles for you. But unfortunately that was the only thing that I, as a vegetarian, could actually order from the main menu as far as I could see. All the other vegetable options were served with oyster sauce! :angry: It's not that hard to add a few non-carnivorous options, is it?

Great for kids -- my son adores the whitebait and we love the spicy squid -- you get what you pay for and perhaps just a bit more cos they are really friendly and efficient (true about the vege options -- not much really but then that is SE Asia after all)

Not gourmet food but neither is it gourmet prices.

Decent enough, comfortable surroundings with an excellent choice of food. A well-oiled machine with efficient service and generous portions.

I stopped going there over two years ago as I found the food to be very bland. It was a shame really as we were once all regular visitors and the waitresses even knew the wife by her first name.

Maybe they have changed the chef since then and it has hopefully improved.

I notice alot of excellent replies. Now i would ussualy agree as the food is very cheap and is pretty tasty too. But the english is bad there. Its a mission to order on the phone and when eating in, you can never tell if they have got your order right.

James and other mods - the name has been changed to 'Oriental Buffet'. As far as I can tell it's the same people running the place. As you would expect from the name change, they are going to start having a buffet very soon.

The dishes were not over-seasoned with artificial flavourings; so we could taste the ingredients, which were very good and fresh. Cheap and tasty and generous portions. The waiter invited us to order by ticking the menu, so there was no danger of misunderstanding. Will go again (after we've been round the Triangle).
