Cafes and Snack Bars in Colchester
19-21 Crouch Street
From the outside it looks pretty drab, almost like a cafe - signs in the window, tacky decorations and so on. However, it is VERY good value at about Â£7.50 per person for an adult, and unlike the previous review suggests, there was plenty of food. However I have been a few times and once the food wasnt as hot as it could have been. I think that the amount of food depends on when you visit - The time the food was cold was just as it opened and we had been waiting a few minutes and could see that the food had been out all the time. However when it has been open for a while and the food is being refilled constantly it it hot, there is plenty, and it is delicious! Ocassionally one or two dishes will run out but I found this good as it encouraged me to try new things, some of which were really great. The decor is quite dingy and tacky, but the food - which, after all, is the whole point! - is excellent. Will go there again - in fact, i am having a birthday party there for myself on Saturday! Woohoo!

Not at all impressed. The window advertises, "Over 35 dishes to choose from". Nowhere near that number. Also advertises "All you can eat buffet" I could have eaten more if there was more food out. Most of the dishes on the servery were empty when I went to them. The one member of staff at the counter seemed very uninterested in the diners. Our party had 2 babies with us, they only have 1 high chair for the whole place Decor very dingy, especially upstairs on the route to the toilets. We had family members with us who were visitors to the area. They regularly eat at Chinese Buffets and would not wish to visit this one in the future. Our 1st and last visit to this place
