U Buffet

************* Original review was published August 2015 *******************

See below for updates and pictures

U Buffet is the new buffet on West Street. Its been open about a month now.

Its a nice enough place. Very bright, friendly staff and great food. They have your standard Chinese Buffet dishes as well as a nice salad bar. Desserts are quite nice too. At night then have a BBQ station open where you can get stuff on skewers freshly cooked for you. Minor thing is that the staff take your cutlery when they take your plates so you need to get one. I just got mine off another table but you’re supposed to get it from the station at the same time you top up your food.


At the moment the lunch is good and reasonable priced. Only £7.50 from 11.45 to 4.30pm. At night its £13.90 Monday to Thursday and £14.90 Friday and Saturday.

During the day, its convenient location and great price make it an ideal place to eat on West Street. At night though, I think the Cosmo is better. U Buffet is great but Cosmo has set the bar extremely high. Cosmo wins out on the unlimited drinks refills and being a world buffet they have more dishes. For most that won’t matter though. Even I was full before I could try everything at the U-Buffet.

***************** Update for 2015. *****************

Since I wrote this review back in August 2014, things have changed. I think on average over the year, I’ve been to ubuffet more than Cosmo. If you want the full international buffet then Cosmos still wins but for a Chinese buffet, U-buffet is better.

I finally introduced myself and asked if they’d pay for advertising. The owner thought about it for a second and said no. Usually I don’t bother with payment but this place does Living Social vouchers/ coupons so they are paying them so why not pay a local? Guess he knew that I’d write a nice review anyway so no need to pay 🙂

I took some pictures this time.
