I went to Wing's Buffet last night with my family after an absence of more that a year to find that it had changed owners. You now have to pay upfront, which I can understand if the restaurant has customers who run without paying. However, even before I had tasted the food,I began to understand another reason we were asked to pay beforehand; the noodle dishes were almost devoid of vegetables and meat and the other dishes looked as if only the colour of the sauces had been varied. On tasting, I found everything unbarably salty. The vegetables I tried were no exception, and came in a sauce that resembled wallpaper paste. The fried peanuts were burned, steamed rice was crunchy and the side salad cut into such tiny slivers that it tasted like hay. The food overall was shocking and in no way resembeles any Chinese food I've ever eaten. However if you are indifferent to food, like it well salted, and are only concerned with eating your own bodyweight in meat and noodles, this place is right up your street. Incidently, I thought the place was Halal? That can sit well with Chinese cuisine, but having pork set out with other dishes is surely a no no. Perhaps the new owner is as cynical about this as he is about the business in general. After reading the other reviews that have been added this year, I can't believe that they are for real. I will end by saying that if you have to see for yourself, don't lay any money down until you've seen the food! Susan
