I have to say that Buffet City was a surprise restaurant. We almost missed it while walking around to find a nice place to have dinner. It is located at the top of some stairs in a busy part of the city, but once you see it, there is no doubt that it is a nice restaurant. When we first... More

We attend Buffet City every week. The food is always lovely. The staff are excellent. They can't do enough for you. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

In this place you can feel and taste that the target is to be cheap. There is a big variety of food here but it is the cheapest among the cheapest and so it tastes. If you are out to get lots of cheap food - fine then this is the place for you. If you are aiming for at... More

Great place to eat good food with such a vast amount to choose from. Good atmosphere and friendly staff in a comfortable restaurant. The dessert choice was like something I have never seen anywhere before, ever. You name it, they pretty much had it. Very reasonable and something for everyone. The whole family were nicely fed and watered before going... More

Arriving just about 6.00 PM the price was higher than the lunch hours, but on arriving the evening fresh buffet dishes were arriving. Great timing fresh sushi, soup terrines filled and piping hot. Dim Sum and and ribs and fish bits all replenished. Good... More

You don't have to go very often or frequently to be recognised by the friendly staff, which is wonderful at a buffet. We tend to go for the dinner when the Japanese chef is on and will make you a full plate of fresh terriyaki beef and prawns. As at all buffets, there is plently of stodge for people who... More
