About Kinema Restaurant
The Kinema Restaurant is a global fusion buffet in the heart of Dunfermline town, with an incredible selection of food combined with a stylish yet contemporary bar.
The term global fusion is coined as we've curated dishes from around the world - Chinese, Thai, Italian, Mexican - and presented them buffet style, our chefs will be performing at live cooking stations including our Teppanyaki Grill.
The restaurant itself is situated on the iconic Kinema Ballroom site which has played host to David Bowie, Elton John, The Clash & even The Who. Now however, the chefs are the stars of the show and the world cuisine takes centre stage.
Would do with tea and coffee
very easy to book online. there is a large selection of food something for everyone. the food was very good would defo recommend to friends and family and will be back again
Having very clear distinct zones for starters / mains and desserts is very good idea. The live cooking in the middle adds a entertainment value.
Good choice of food with excellent service
Was a bit expensive (105.00 for 4 adults 2 kids under 11) it was the weekend though We all enjoyed the food, although the salt and pepper chicken tasted funny Kids loved using the chop sticks and practicing eating with them. Would come back when it's a but cheaper
Will be back....was lovely
Was a lovely meal highly reccomend
Amazing food quality and a very wide selection, unlike other buffets. Lovely cocktails. Would definitely come again.
Drinks were reasonable but really slow arriving - we’d already finished our starters. Huge choice of food (although salad choice v poor compared to Beijing banquet) but the quality and taste weren’t the best and lots of dishes luke warm. The decor was lovely and a nice large open space. The restaurant manger/supervisor (I think he was anyway) was very helpful and attentive. Not a great experience but I will give it another go anyway.
We had a lovely time with our family celebrating a birthday and the two little ones enjoyed themselves. Good place for a family with children.
I wrote a complaint to your email address and didnt even get an acknowledgment..
Brilliant meal, thoroughly enjoyed by all our party
First visit, excellent food and drink and very warm, inviting and elegant establishment. Seemed like staff level was a little low, 10-15 mins for drink order but other than that, excellent.
Heard mixed reviews after initial opening but no complaints at all. There was always someone around to take drinks orders or sweeping up, clearing tables and replenishing food. Had a booking for 5pm. Better than similar venues in Livingston and Edinburgh in my opinion. Only personal issue was lack of chicken at teppanyaki station but no drama given everything else that was available. Going back soon.
My family and I really enjoyed our meal at Kinema staff were very quick and efficient would definitely recommend and we will be back
Food was great always full or filled up straight away. Staff friendly and helpful. The fanta ran out in the tap were a little slow filling it up, but can't complain about anything else.
I enjoyed dinner but was confused with the bill. The price for dinner is not obvious. Please display it on the menu to avoid disappointment.
Quiet expensive for a buffet some off the food was cold . 1st time visit won’t be hurrahing back had better food for less money , disappointed Food was average
Need empty plates lifted from tables quicker especially having kids with us
Lovely restaurant, very clean and well lit. Fabulous staff and service. Food was wonderful. Will definitely go back again
Great place. Lots of choice for vegetarians. The guy who met us at the door explained where everything was and what to do and the rest of the staff were so attentive and polite! I’m trying to persuade my colleagues to have our Christmas night out there. I was very impressed. Wish I had worn more loose fitting trousers! I was stuffed! I Definately recommend this place to anyone.
Some of the dishes were a bit cold but over all was good
Overall good experience. Great food however they need to wash things properly. Multiple dirty plates and cups that hadn't been cleaned properly, slightly off putting.
Beautiful place but no atmosphere. Staff were too busy taking to each other to attend to customer. We sat for 15 minutes with dirty plates on the table. Nobody around to ask for bill. We ended up leaving early and paid at bar. Food was a disappointment. Many bowls empty. If the staff were more attentive and worked with a smile and the food was hotter and more of it than this place would be great for staff nights out. We won’t be back as there is other buffet restaurants with better quality food and better service which is a shame as Dunfermline is closer to us.
After ordering drinks we had to go up and ask about them again 30 minutes later, but the food was good, always refilled quickly after the trays got low, friendly staff.
