It will be the talk of the town.

That’s the promise from bosses behind Huddersfield’s latest restaurant which was unveiled to the public for the first time at the weekend – and expects to serve up to 4,000 diners a week.

The Chinese Buffet, based in the former Peter’s department store in King Street, cost £750,000 and has created around 50 new jobs.

Its planned opening in November was put back due to construction delays.

And there were a few teething problems ahead of Saturday’s opening.

An electrician had to be called out as an emergency after a tripped fuse led to some problems with the cooking equipment.

Despite this Paolo Hu, one of the directors, said he was sure that diners would be impressed.

“I’m very confident and I am sure people will be very pleased,” he said.

“I believe this restaurant is one of the best restaurants in Huddersfield – it’s the biggest Chinese restaurant at 10,000 square feet.

“It’s a very stunning restaurant and one of the best, if not the best, we’ve done so far.

“I think it will be the talk of the town.”

The restaurant was packed on Saturday when VIPs, family and friends attended for the opening.
