The Water Margin serves all-you-can-eat, set-price Oriental buffets. Find it upstairs in Gunwharf Quays, at the foot of the Spinnaker Tower, where it looks incredible against the night sky. This is the original of three privately-owned restaurants. Each offers self-service buffet dining in a contemporary open-plan setting. It is spacious with enormous tear-drop lighting hanging from high ceilings, and ample seating that you can easily rearrange for crowds or separate for a twosome.

The circular buffet has no less than 30 lunch and 60 dinner dishes on offer, from hot starters to desserts, and choices vary each day. We found soups, fritters and crispy duck among the starters, with a selection of vegetable, meat and seafood for mains, as well as fried rice and noodles, curries and sauces. Dessert is a simple affair - fresh fruit, jelly and ice cream.

On the off chance that this is not enough for you, select whatever you fancy from the raw section (we chose raw vegetables, seafood, poultry and meat), and present it to the chefs at the noodle and teppanyaki bar for a personalised stir-fry with noodles, cooked just for you. They will also cook you special noodle soups; we had a spicy one with chicken, seafood, chilli and coconut milk - delicious.

This system means minimal queues, as plates and cutlery are all to hand, and you can return as many times as you like. Price depends on the day of the week, lunch being £6.90 or £8.50. Dinner is £12.80 (£13.80 on Friday and Saturday) and drinks are reasonable too. Children eat for half-price so this is an ideal place to treat friends and family.
