Good food, great price! - Edit

A good mix of foods! The food was not "exceptional" but the plenty of options made up for it! About 5-6 different"meat" dishes, fresh fruit and veg, coleslaw, noodles... Would be hard to eat gf here!

good vegan all you can eat for 6.50 - Edit

I went here with an omni friend. She gave it 9/10 and was so impressed with the options and how "real" some of the faux meats were. I really enjoyed it as well. The food was good if you're on a night out and want to line the tummy or after a few drinks as there are some good salty greasy options too. The hot and cold dishes were varied from flavour to spiciness so there's something for everyone. Nice friendly staff. There's a fast bustly vibe there but there were loads of people eating alone reading papers so its a nice spot to grab a quick cheap meal by yourself or for nights out or family meals. I didnt like the wine. It was the only downfall. But that could be my taste buds!! Id highly reccommend.

great value - Edit

I was there at 12 on the dot as I had. a train to catch.
there was initially odd moments when I arrived and wasn't really spoken too. there seemed an assumption that I might be a regular and no on really spoke to me, and I didn't have a clue about the set up.
the food looked good and there is a huge selection of fried foods, cold dishes and hot buffet
the food I had was okay but not spectacular, and although it's good value i left full but not satisfied. too reliant on mock meat and not enough vegetables for me, and it felt a bit oily. the place is fine for lunch, but I wouldn't recommend to a friend as it's okay, but not great.
Formally don't this offers great value and a good selection. A bit off that the section near the window has no heater so goes cold, although the there is salad there as well.
Crispy duck pancakes are on offer.

Pros: good value, plenty of selection, location

Cons: less.soybwould.be better

Asian style buffet - Edit

Asian all you can eat style buffet with incredible price. Everything is vegan so it feels incredulous. The food tasted really good, however they used to have problems with hygiene (0 stars in 2016) it got better now (4stars in 2017) but still can't help to think they could pay more attention to it.

Service is not very friendly, and they charge a service fee that many don't approve of - but they do refill the teas and take your plates away, so.. the price is so good that if you manage to gobble up 4 plates of food - please tip well. 🍜🍡🍛

Pros: Everything is vegan, Tofu chunks, Price

Cons: Service, Hygiene

Super affordable vegan asian food - Edit

A very simple buffet with amazing selection of 100% vegan food. I was surprised at how good their vegan meats and curries tasted and the prawn crackers were a huge plus too! Very affordable as well.

Cheap all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet - Edit

Went with my sister and her boyfriend for dinner one night and we were all pleasantly surprised at how affordable it was for an all-you-can-eat spread. The food is generally quite tasty but is on the oily and salty side. Good option in a touristy area, we left full and satisfied.

Pros: Super cheap buffet selection

Cons: On the oily and salty side

Delicious, great value vegan food - Edit

I'm always happy when I go to a place that's all vegan, but this place went above and beyond! It's cheap and cheerful but very very tasty, and incredible value for an all you can eat buffet in London. Loved it!

good, cheap food - Edit

Couldn't believe this was all vegan! Tasty food, both hot and cold - my boyfriend and I tried pretty much every single dish. The only downside was the hygiene (especially of the bathrooms) that takes some getting used to.

Pros: cheap food, all you can eat buffet

Cons: not so clean, unnecessary serving tax added

World Favorite - Edit

This is one of my most favored places to eat on the six continents we have visited (not expecting much when we finally get to Antarctica).

The food is superb with a multitude of choices that vary each time we visit. There always seems to be room and the staff is courteous and helpful.

The prices are great for not only London but just about anywhere else in the world. The location couldn't be better, just steps from the tube and the sprawling Camden market.

I'd eat here everyday if I could and weigh a ton.

Pros: Food, Price, Location

Cons: You can only eat for two hours-LOL

not the best, but good value for money! - Edit

It's a simple place and for just under £6 you can eat as much as you like at lunchtime safely knowing it's all vegetarian - can't fault that. There was quite a variety, lots of mock meat, but yes, very oily as many people have mentioned. Not a bad place to go when you're low on money but want to eat a lot.

Pros: cheap, eat as much as you like, all vegetarian

Cons: oily

All you can eat - Edit

It's an all you can eat buffet with quite a lot of food and a reasonable price. Service are friendly and leave all the time you want to spend in there.

I went as a raw vegan knowing it wasn't the right place, but I could choose a few things like fruit, cucumbers, tomatoes, a couple of salads that were raw (cabbage, carrots, etc.).

I recommend it if you love chinese fried food and are very hungry and don't want to spend much money.

Pros: Relation between price and quantity of food

Cons: Not for people who don't eat fried foods.

estelabay 29 Oct 2016 - I forgot to say the most important thing, it's entirely vegan! which makes the place worth going.

Excellent Chinese buffet - Edit

Quite a large selection, lots of fake meat options. Really tasty. Fairly cheap (£6.90 each all you can eat). Obviously not fine dining but when you want loads of Chinese food it's perfect!

Don't bother - Edit

The restaurant has a very low hygiene standard. The lady in the kitchen was coughing and then spat into a bucket on the ground. Food is really poor quality and the floor looks like it hadn't been mopped for years.

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Low hygiene

could be better - Edit

To call it a salad bar may be a stretch. However it's cheap, and if you want fine dining it's not the place for you. But grab a pot and go.. This is your place. Chinese buffet.

Pros: cheap

terrible mistake to be there - Edit

Really cheap restaurant. I mean cheap ambiance, cheap service and cheap quality food. The owner was refilling the food with a big dirty plastic bowl as if feeding hogs. I also noticed that they seemed never to give bills to clients. At least not to me. The owner just muttered out 10.35. With my fatigue after my flight, I actually gave her 14 by mistake. No appreciation, no change, she just said, "that's correct!" But that's wrong from every aspect! Restaurant like this should be closed as soon as possible to stop further damaging the reputation of vegan and vegetarian diary.
