You should expect low standards from an ‘all you can eat’ buffet (you are putting quantity over quality, after all), but this failed to meet even my extremely low expectations.
Prawn crackers were chewy (how on earth?!), the veg completely overstewed, and the pork spare ribs were more like sparse ribs, devoid of all but the most miniscule amount of meat, which was virtually incinerated anyway.
Now, you could say that I shouldn’t expect any better, but the quality of the cooking here doesn’t help the ingredients. Just because the ingredients are cheap doesn’t mean you can’t cook them properly.
The final insult is the £1 ‘optional’ service charge stuck on the bill. Yep, a service charge for a ‘help yourself’ buffet? Beyond cheeky.
