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.

Having very clear distinct zones for starters / mains and desserts is very good idea. The live cooking in the middle adds a entertainment value.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
