Brilliant restaurant, I've been going for years and apart from having to wait a bit longer on mothers day when it was chocker block I couldn't fault it. The range of food is great, pretty much any meat with any sauce is available on the all you can eat BANQUET. It's a bit more expensive on Friday and Saturday night rather than a Sunday but the presentation is better and it's worth it for the all you can eat Peking Duck! No other restaurant has all you can eat duck that is cooked fresh! Staff are friendly, prices are decent, the restaurant is clean and tidy. There is a restaurant a few doors down that does a Chinese BUFFET for £6.99 but the food is limited to choice, is overcooked and and most of the sauces seem based on the same thing. It really doesn't compare to the Slow Boat where it is cooked FRESH to order.
