Wide salad bar (including different types of olives and cheese), soups. Theyinclude some local dishes like tomato choka sometimes. This time i tried sushi for first time - both salmon and vegetarian (yes). Made... More

Visited for a lunch with friends. Ideal choice for a party including vegetarians and those with dietary restrictions. Guaranteed to be sufficient choice as Jaffa's lunch buffet comprises a variety of main dishes , salads , sushi, soups , and desserts. These vary but all have one thing in common. The dishes are creative and exceptional. Examples - roasted garlic... More

I will start by saying I can only tell about the lunch buffet not anything else. If you are looking for a very wide variety from soup to salad to main meal to dessert then this is a great stop. Their food is very tasty and there's lots of variety. Great value for money!

The doors were opened for us, we were seated right away; without a reservation and we were attended to right away when seated. -The variety was insane! Even the juice options were practically limitless! -Everything was tasty! Every morsel of food, the sauces, even the... More

Conveniently located at the Queens Park Oval, Woodbrook with adequate parking facility which is a plus. Staff very friendly and accommodating and the service in general was quite good. The lunchtime buffet had a wide selection of foods and needless to say was delicious. Would recommend highly.

Came for a weekday buffet lunch. Excellent selection of salads and starters. Good buffet main courses with a mix of Indian dishes and an English style roast. Reasonable desserts including good caramel custard. Wine included. Altogether a good lunch at a good price. Will gave to come back for a Sunday brunch. Recommended.
