We found this new restaurant in the Manchester city centre and as the price was right for lunch and it was a buffet with a very wide variety of choices, we went for it. The restaurant is a buffet style with many different international tastes. They have Italian, Chinese, Indian, Thai, Japanese, Mexican, British and they have a large dessert buffet including an ice cream sundae counter and a Belgian Waffle counter. The restaurant is set up with a section for each of the main ethnic areas. There's a starter area with salads and crudites and there are other tables set up with a variety of different items. The sweets are a droolworthy temptation. There's quite a lot of vegetarian options as well in each of the ethnic choices.Some things are only available in the evenings including the sushi bar and the Belgian Waffle bar. The food was all fresh and hot and really good. They do charge in the high range for drinks but most buffet restaurants do the same in my experience. The restaurant itself is a good size and the chairs are armless and comfy. Lots of windows make it bright. The decor is red and black with white tablecloths and there are plenty of wait staff to clear the dirty plates to make room for your next lot.The restaurant is one floor above street level with a bar on the ground level but there's a small lift at the back of the bar to get up to the restaurant if you can't do stairs.Favorite Dish: It's all good. The Belgian Waffle buffet would be amazing (though we weren't able to partake as we were there for lunch and it was an evening-only item). The sweets were all little bite sized so you could sample a few. The Indian curries were quite nice and the Tex-Mex items were tasty too. None of the foods we tried was overly hot and spicy though it's possible some of the Indian food might have been hotter. We paid 7.99 pounds for lunch (price range chosen is the evening cost) but it's a bit higher in the evenings. Still a very good value for your money, though. We didn't have to book but in the evening you might want to. You can book online at the website. There are a half dozen branches around the country (Leeds, Liverpool, Nottingham, Milton Keynes, and Northampton in addition to Manchester).
