I totally agree with the reviewer below – I love love LOVE this place, and have been 6 times now since discovering it 8 months ago!!! Being Sichuanese, I often crave the mouth-numbing taste of spicy hotpot, and this place is by far the cheapest place to feast this desire.
£12.50 for a buffet is an amazing price. Meat, seafood, veg, noodles… the options are varied and enough to satisfy most people's appetites. As I often go with westerners who cannot tolerate the spice so we opt for a half-half pot, where one side is just chicken broth and the other spicy. There is also a grill option which I've yet to try but have heard really positive things about it.
Be warned, they charge £5 for every box of food you leave – and yes, I've seen the chef enforce this! Personally, I feel this is good practice for a buffet; if you can't finish, don't put it on your plate!
