I heard mixed opinions and regularly go to China East in Hatfield so as we were in the Galleria myself, husband and 2 young kids popped in. It was busy but got a table quickly on good friday lunchtime.
-The chicken in the dishes was pinky inside
-The sauces were terribly artificial
-poor selection and running out of everything
There was totally no customer service compared to other friendlier places. The plates were v wet as came out of dishwasher but a few of us didnt want to put our fresh food on such wet plates so i kindly asked a member of staff if she had something to dry it with and she said 'cant you see we are very busy?', i was shocked and explained i didnt want to eat off a wet plate and she got me paper towel!
I wont be going here again. I know its cheap but customers deserve a bit more quality. China East does good (not always excellent) value food, with a greater selection and their staff are always friendly and helpful...
Having read the review by chugglebunny I decided to visit The Real China in Hatfield Galleria. The review was spot on and everything was as it had said.
The Real China have the biggest number of choices for a lunchtime buffet I have seen at any before, including some items which are normally reserved for the more expensive evening buffets.
I would definitely recommend The Real China in Hatfield, not only to people who enjoy Chinese food, but to everyone who enjoys very good quality food at a very reasonable price. The drinks menu is varied and all are reasonably priced.
The staff were always available but they kept out of the way throughout the meal and I didn't feel under any pressure to finish the meal and leave.
Chugglebunny mentioned that any restaurants which open in that particular spot all seem to close within 18 months, I sincerely hope that isn't the case here, and that The Real China is there well in to the future.
