Buffet Island is a chain of Chinese buffet restaurants. The restaurant I will be discussing is the Great Barr restaurant in Birmingham. It is in the outskirts of Birmingham and is easy to find using the Sat Nav. We aren't from the area but could easily locate the restaurant. It was around a 10 minute drive from our hotel which was the Travelodge Birmingham Streetly.The restaurant offers a spacious car park and bus stops are located nearby. The contact details for the restaurant are as follows :
We sat in an alcove with padded seating and a round table. We had Pandas on our wall which I thought was unusual! The tables are arranged in such a way where there is enough space for your party to talk without being interupted by fellow diners. There is enough spacious for prams and wheelchairs to be navigated around the restaurant and it is very much open plan and clean throughout. The toilets are located at the far side of the restaurant and I can confirm their cleanliness. Disabled toilets and baby changing are also available.The buffet area itself is a noticeable as soon as you walk into the restaurant. It is incredibly spacious and very clean. There are various counters dotted around with different food at each. They have arranged it so that the main courses are together, sides together etc. It is a good set up and there is sufficient room for many diners to fill their plates at the same time. One aspect I loved was the huge parcel shaped ornament at the salad section. It was lit up and rotated - it looked very pretty modern.
There is a wide variety of dishes to suit all tastes including children and vegetarians. Starters include various soups, pasta salad, mussels, sushi and even crab sticks. Main courses include a carvery with vegetables and potatoes, various curries, meat in sauces (chicken, pork, duck etc), prawns and even pizza and garlic bread. You can then help yourself to sides such as chips, prawn crackers and pancake rolls. Desserts can be found in two different cabinets and include choices such as chocolate fudge cake, biscuit pudding, cheesecake, jelly and ice cream and even crispy cakes!
