Not great, just good

We came for dinner as a group of 10 and I think the service could have been a lot better considering it has the potential to be an amazing experience based on location. The quality of service from the wait staff was inconsistent - some wait staff had a blank expression and only some were friendly... read more

Enjoyed the buffet, including a selection of the coat of arms ( Emu, Kangaroo) and Crocodile. Definitely impressive array of food and quality surpassing other Sydney restaurants with buffet. Best of all, is the billion dollar views enjoyed with a 360 degree revolving platform.

The 360 degree bar & restaurant at Sydney Tower - you actually pay for the fantastic views, simply amazing! But the food is average, nothing special and over rated. There is no flavour and the dishes are not presented well at all. The service however is excellent and the staff are very courteous, friendly and helpful.

We dined at 17h to see the sunset. The food is well prepared and tasty, the staff is not that good but it fills its purpose. It is a bit expensive for the service rendered but the whole experience is totally worth because you get to see the city in 360 from above, enjoying a good meal with your travel... More

This is one place you have to visit, after paying and booking for an all you can eat buffet at just under $50 Aus we went shopping, at our time we came back and was shown the lift, up we went and at the top shown our seat. Plenty of staff and asked what drink we wanted. We went up... More

Was in Sydney in May and ate here one night. The location, experience, food and quality was worth the price. A bit of a must for any tourist in town.

I have to say that the food was a big disappontment for me and my friend, we payed quite a lot for a food that there is nothing special. We had too many expectations about the restaurant, because when you go to a revolving restaurant you do expect a lot. So it's not that important to dine there, I suggest... More

This is the second time I have visited the Sydney Tower restaurant when holidaying in Sydney. The views as it gets dark are amazing! The food is fantastic as well. The fact that it is a revolving restaurant gives you stunning views across all of Sydney from out to the harbour entrance and inland to the Blue Mountains. The choices... More
