SITUATED in the heart of Worcester’s vibrant, new Cathedral Square, offering breathtaking views of the historic Cathedral, is the City’s newest restaurant, Kung Fu.
An authentic Asian buffet, with more than 20 restaurants across the UK, Kung Fu’s flagship eatery does not disappoint, offering an all-you-can-eat buffet that literally has something for everyone.
Whether you are a vegetarian, vegan, pescatarian or have certain food allergies, Kung Fu will have a dish for you.
Serving around 150 dishes from nine buffet stations, two live-cooking stations, five dessert sections and seafood, teppanyaki, noodle and salad bars, this is the perfect opportunity to experience the powerful, fresh flavours of Asian cuisine.
After entering the spacious restaurant, which seats more than 200 people in a cosy environment that resembles a cross between a museum and cafeteria, with its oriental-themed ornaments and art, we were shown to our table by friendly and accommodating staff.
Not that we were there for long, however, as we soon delved into the culinary delights of Beijing, Tokyo, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok and Istanbul, and the best part was we never needed our passports!
At the Turkish food station we enjoyed grilled chicken wings and melt-in-the-mouth kebab, before tucking into creamy Thai green curry at the Thailand station.
Our Asian adventure continued with stop offs in South Korea, where we tried spicy pork and sweet, sticky Korean BBQ chicken wings, and Malaysia, which offered delicious coconut dishes.
Next stop was Japan, where you could help yourself to a bountiful selection of fresh sushi and shrimp, as well as squid, scallops, steak and chicken from the live-cooking station.
Noodle and rice dishes packed with chicken, beef and mussels were proudly on display at the Chinese food station, and if these destinations failed to fill you up – I had four plates – the desert selection definitely would.
A chocolate fountain with marshmallow sticks paired with a tray of sweet treats such ice creams and cakes rounded off a spectacular evening of raw, quality flavour.
Overall, costing just £8.95 for lunch and £15.95 for dinner, and with special discounts for children, you will leave Kung Fu with a stomach as full as your wallet.
Kung Fu is just as much a gateway to Asia as it is a restaurant.
