Eat your heart out at Kungfu Eastleigh


Honestly I can't tell you the last time I went to a buffet restaurant. They have a few, sometimes unfair, associations of not being particularly good food. But I'm here to prove you perhaps a teeny bit wrong about this perception, with a little help from Kungfu Eastleigh*. 

So Eastleigh has always had a tie to our house, as it was were I got my first job when I moved to Hampshire for University. I took a further two jobs in the town centre and have seen its development, though I must admit it has been a while since I was last visiting. In fact the last time was when we registered Henry! 

Anyway, we were invited along to try Kungfu, which is in the old Real China site, but with a refresh. In fact Kungfu has to be one of the prettiest buffet's if not restaurants I've been to. 
As with most buffets, the concept is as expected.
You have your usual starters and main dishes including the normal Chinese food favourites - rice, noddles, sweet and sour, spring rolls, duck pancakes etc. Just pick up a plate and load up. 

But what makes Kungfu a bit special is there sushi, dim sum and teppanyaki bars as well as the freshly cooked seafood selections. 



Teppanyaki is japanese iron-plate cooking. You select what you would like and the chefs cook it for you, and it is amazing. I have to say the Teppanyaki was the highlight of the meal for me and made for a really unique experience.  




Henry was a particular fan of the mini hash browns!! And prawn crackers - this boy can eat a lot of prawn crackers!!

Last but not least was desserts, which are included in the buffet price. There's a huge selection for every individual like, including a chocolate fountain which looked very popular with the kids. Henry of course, went nuts for ice cream!





Just look at those boys of mine!! 

At £12.95 per person, I think this is a buffet that lives up to the price for a evening meal. 
The staff are helpful and pleasant, and really make an effort with children to make the experience as simple as possible. 
Find them on their Facebook page.
