In centre of city.
Busy at weekends.
I visited the Panda Oriental Buffet Chinese restaurant on a trip through Sunderland a few weeks ago. I was surprised at the lack of decent places to eat here; probably only four or five restaurants in the whole city centre, but plenty of kebab and pizza take-aways.
I don't think Sunderland has quite grasped the idea of good food. The buffet had a reasonable choice, but the food on offer was either too greasy, too dried up or tasteless. None of it tasted fresh, or even authentically Chinese!
Not a good experience at all. It's more like a cafe than a restaurant.
