Description: EAT YOUR WAY AROUND THE WORLD When you arrive at JIMMY’S, you’ll be shown to your table, & a drinks order will be taken. If you’re a first timer you’ll have the concept explained to you. Jimmy’s is an ‘All You Can Eat Buffet’ with all your favourite foods from around the world; Chinese, Indian, Mexican, Italian, and there’s also a selection of salads & don’t forget to leave room for dessert. There are LIVE STATIONS with chefs who will cook food to order, including mix your own ice cream. So, all you do is visit the buffet & fill your plate. Once you’ve finished your first plate you’re free to go back to the buffet as many times as you like. It couldn’t be easier. We hope to see you soon.

I'm not a huge fan of Buffets myself but went to Jimmy's to give it a try.

Space is very good, with great seating arrangements for whole family. It's rare that a restaurant has that much space in London.

Staff are mostly friendly and helpful.

Food is poor with hardly any great variety.

Dear Guest
We're really concerned to hear your experience which we assure was a regrettable exception.

All our food is freshly prepared by or team of experienced chefs twice a day for lunch and dinner. We serve over 60 dishes for lunch and around 100 for dinner. Our prices for what we serve would beat any fast food chain for value of money. The quality of food and the authentic taste is constantly praised by the regular guests at Jimmy's.

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your meal, if you did not find dishes that you liked in the 100 dishes and live food stations then it is difficult for any other restaurant to offer you a similar spread. Our various live food stations cook food to your liking so you get only what you like the way you like it.
We would like to invite you as our guests to sample our varied dishes. All our guests praise the world cuisine we serve as being tasty and authentic. We would really like to change your opinion, so please do visit us and give us an opportunity to make things right for you.

Kind Regards
Guest Relations

Went to Jimmy's in Wimbledon for the first time for a birthday lunch on Sunday. I'm not really a fan of buffets as generally the food is sub-par due to the price associated with it, and quite often food is dry and generic.

I wasn't wrong - Jimmy's embodies everything I know buffets to be - average food, dry at time, especially if it has been out a while, nothing done overly well, huge interior and gluttons circling for food! Everything that makes a restaurant avoidable.

However, having said all the above - I noticed that if you are the type of person that enjoys buffets, that you will love the variety in this place and the cheapness of the bill by the end of the meal. Great for fussy kids as there is a range of foods from all over the world. You had better get your rugby gear on as people only have one goal and that's eating as much as possible - you're going to have to fight for it! :-)

I also have to point out that the staff are really polite and helpful - but still, this isn't enough for me to return, I'm sure it will be a good place for less fussy people to frequent.
