Swe were travelling to Ballybofey and stopped in Cookstown. A friend recommended the Dunleath. When we noticed it did three courses for Â£10.00 we thought oops maybe should have gone elsewhere. We were very pleasantly surprised. My son had garlic mushrooms as his starter and he said they were lovely. He then opted for chicken and chips which he ate with relish. (pleasure not sauce) followed by chocolate cake He was very pleased with his meal. After I informed the very pleasant waitress that I had a severe wheat and egg allergy she went to check with chef. Upon return she said that with exception of two meals on menu the chef could cook anything else to suit. I had the chicken which was really good. My granddaughter had chicken gougons and she said they were lip-smacking good. A jug of orange and our meals came to Â£24. I will definitely call here again when I am in that neck of the woods. Highly recommended.
Typical Chinese Buffet food, some good some greasy & tasteless. We will however never return because of the dreadful attitude of the young waitress & the loud dance music playing, it was seriously as though they want to make the dining experience as awful as possible so you move on quickly!

Come here regularly with the family (they all love it).Eat all you want buffet. Value for money (price depends on day & time visited). Simple straightforward 'help yourself' layout. Frequent replenishment with freshly cooked food. Good variety of chicken dishes but some could maybe have stronger flavours (and I don't mean by just adding more salt as some are already over salted).Little variety of dessert - but then who has room for dessert.Overall worth the visit but I would like to see more flavours.Will we be back - of course we will (when the salt wears off my lips).
You can see the cooking in the background, which is always good I think.I had a beef curry. The beef was cut a little thick for my liking, the curry is excellent however, smooth, spicy and a good consistency. It's a takeaway, but has several tables if you prefer to sit in.Definitely a good Chinese and would recommend.
This was my first food order online, I found the site easy to use, and the menu was extensive, it even has a selection of dishes suitable for people watching their weight , complete with the amount of calories each dish contains. The food arrived within the delivery time estimated, piping hot and was delicious.

I was told great things about this place and maybe had set my expectations high. I ordered a chicken satay and the satay sauce was very thin, quite tassels and appeared to be a flavoured "stock" rather than a proper satay sauce. The chicken was ok and the rest of the meal also. The rest of our table of 10 all enjoyed theirs so perhaps it was just a one off and i was unlucky.
