A really nice place to visit with the family. The service was excellent, the different types of foods varied which catered for all tastes.
Great value for money.
Looking forward to my next visit
Absolutely delicious food, good service, good selection of choices. I took my partner for a birthday treat and he was surprised at how nice the venue was, ver well decorated and seating was comfortable. We had a drink at the bar prior to having our meal and he said the drinks were also reasonably priced. Im so glad we went as we really enjoyed our evening and would recommend Buffet Island to firends and family.
I just love the service and food, very clean, staff very help full, and im a 69year old,
A regular visitor,once a week since opening. Superb quality,excellent choice and very friendly smiley staff. Superbly managed.The prawn toasts are to die for,and those prawn crackers. wow.Interestingly paid a visit to Modern China last week.Oh dear,say no more. No comparison. To be offered prawn toasts they must have prawns in. Say no more. Buffet island reigns supreme. One point however,wish they could do a decent banana fritter. Keep up the excellent standards. Modern China not In the same league.
BAD customer service.....................
Buffet Island is one of the best Chinese buffets I have ever been to (and I've been to quite a few, believe me!). The service is usually excellent, and food is amazing - not the bland Chinese stuff that most Chinese restaurants/takeaways/buffets usually serve (Modern China take note!) . I shall be trying the new Buffet Island in Great Barr out soon (hopefully) and I hope that it'll be as good if not better than the one on Tyburn Rd (if that's possible!).
AVOID !!!!!!!!! A terrible attitude from the manageress towards vegetarians and particularly vegetarian children. We had went in, looked at the selection and decided that there was not enough veggie choice. As we were leaving a waiter asked us to stay and he would 'see what he could do' so we thought, 'ok, fine', let's stay and ordered drinks. When i looked more closely at the foods they did not even have plain noodles or fried noodles and i enquired if it was possible to have just plain or fried noodles as my veggie kids are too young for spicy food. The ill mannered manageress started making a scene as if we were being fussy, i tried to explain what the waiter had said, but she just started shouting. My wife was embarrassed at the ridiculous hand waving scene that the manageress was making and so my wife just wanted to leave. The manageress insisted that we pay for our drinks which had just arrived at our table. Plain noodles was obviously beyond their abilities (despite the fact that we pay full price and eat no meat/fish). So i paid for our drinks (which we did not even sip) and left. I sent a letter of complaint but got no reply. My strongest advice would be to avoid this place and go to Modern China, a hugely better buffet and the management is far far superior, they not only do fried noodles as standard, but actually asked us if we wanted the chef to make us a veggie curry, no extra charge. This is our regular place now and the decor&ambience is superb and amazingly is cheaper than Buffet Island. GIVE IT A WIDE BERTH IF YOU ARE VEGGIE OR LIKE GOOD SERVICE
I often eat at buffet island (about once a month) with my girlfriend and it never fails to please! Of all the buffets in the area, e.g. star city's flame and modern china, buffet island is the best. All the food is delicious with a fantastic range for all appetites. The staff are welcoming and the service is good without it being pushy. The price is a bargain bearing in mind what you can have - sushi, ready made chow mein, pancakes and thirty other dishes. I love this place and would recommend it strongly.
Well, what can we say, this place is fantastic the menu is huge you expect a small choice when you eat at a buffet restaurant but there must be a dozen or more dishes for starters and same for mains and even desserts, but it was gorgeous too!!! Absolutely wonderful evening and the staff were very nice too! Cant wait to visit again. WELL DONE BUFFET ISLAND!!!
