Respond to Review of Buffet
by Miggi

Review: We also went after visiting the British Museum (what a cultured lot we veggies are). It's easy to find. There are quite a few places like this dotted around London serving very similar food but I felt this was one of the best ones we've tried. We enjoyed the starters and dips, dumplings, hot and cold dishes. As well as mock-meat dishes there were some dishes of green beans, broccoli and mushrooms which were very tasty alongside the noodles and fake meat in blackbean sauce. The soup wasn't great but I'd recommend trying everything. There were some little extras like the bowls of ground peanuts to sprinkle on, which were good. There was certainly lots of choice - you can arrive back at your table with completely different looking platters of food. As well as the usual fruit salad for dessert there was melon and pineapple, a sago pudding and there were jellies made with coconut too. The decor was really nice and the staff were very friendly, bringing free top-ups of tea etc. It was bustling but never too crowded. There is a fairly constant stream of patter from the owner which made us smile but could become irritating "Ah, you've not been here before, then you don't know you have a favourite table sir" and so on - and a tendency to talk to you for a just a little too long but he was very friendly and it gave the place a bit of character. Seems odd to add a service charge to a buffet price but it's still a good price for a full, filling meal.
