I`ve been at the O2 this weekend with my girlfriend and I really liked the place. Seemed very busy but no queue to wait, I’m a vegetarian and found a vast amount of options to choose from. My friend ate the lamb curry and we left stuffed and happy, good value for your money especially at the O2!
We ate here pre concert as there was no queue, unlike the normal chains at the 02 and we figured we would get our food straight away (I was a bit famished).
Choice is quite good, food wasn't amazing, but enough to get by on. They had lots of vegetables, chinese dishes, rice, noodles, chips, curry, and a choice of raw food to cook in front of you. Good range of desserts, profiterols, ice cream, banana fritters, mince pies, xmas cake (for the festive season).
Price is a bit steep, but at the 02 they can afford to push it up.
This place was not very good, i went there with my boyfriend, we love chinese buffets and for the price of 13 quid each we expected alot more than we got. the food had no taste except of grease and too much of it. the bar where you can get a chef to cook for you was cool and the desserts were good quality (except for the jelly that they hadnt made properly thy jus cut up the unmade jelly into chunks) i was really dissapointed especially since our local buffet costs half as much and tastes three times as good and they dont even have seaweed!!! deffo not returning, its a shame because the decor is really nice and its a really big place. good luck to anyone brave enough to go to this place.
I would like to give Water Margin 2.5 points. As I cannot, I’ve opted for 3.
Food was plentiful and largely OK. That said, my partner’s comments on the chicken with lemon sauce are unrepeatable. I steered clear of much of the traditional sauce smothered diches so cannot comment.
I did have duck pancakes with hoi sin. cucumber and spring onions - very good. There were lots of raw fresh vegetables to enhance dishes with. As with any buffet, I guess it’s in the choices you make.
Overall, I’d rate this place as thoroughly competent and pleasant. Cleanliness was important and well practiced. Drinks choices were plentiful, reasonably priced and well served.
I disagree with londonlads review I have been to this restaurant three times twice in october this year and more recently last sunday eve(16 nov) and each time I and both my freinds were impressed with the vast selection, quality and freshness of the food on offer and far better than most chinese buffets we have tried in London so much so that we intend to eat here regularly when we are in the mood for buffet food and at £13.80 for all u can eat is very good value for money. The place can also not be faulted on cleanliness and staff are very quick to take away your plate each time u go back for more. I highly reccomend anyone give it a go but go on a empty stomach to get your moneys worth lol.
I would offer this place one star. Visited earlier in 2008 and had rather high expectations. The choise was vast but the quantity of food in each offering was very limited. Since the food was under the heat, the result was that the food was dried, and didnt look at all appealing. There was a bit of cooking from chefs on the side but in all the quality of food didnt appeal that much. Deserts were quite basic and consisted of ice cream in contaienrs and something else I cant remember. From my experience, I definitely would not return. There is so much choice at the O2 and this is definitely one lower down the list. It’s not a cheap chinese buffet in financial terms but I felt that the food quality did not reflect what I had paid for it. Sorry!
