Breakfast here was included with our stay at "The Darling" Best buffet breakfast I have ever had. So many choices. Service was good and friendly. Food was all fresh and tasty. Being a vegetarian I usually find buffets quite limited for choice, not the case here. Waffles and berries, yum! I even saw some gluten free pastries.

we had our staff Xmas lunch there. they were promised they could set up our table before everyone arrived, and that we would have a quiet area. None of this happened - in fact they had no record of our prepayment and kept the team waiting 30 mins. Food was ok, many dishes were cold, but a good variety. Pork... More

A large restaurant dining option at The Star - we went in with only moderate expectations, but were pleasantly surprised! We dined with a large group of 30 people (brunch options for a group on Sunday morning in central Sydney can be limited) and were able to be seated together in the large dining area. The wait staff were busy,... More

The Blacktown Workers Club buffet is a thousand times better than this one for variety and quality and value for money. The meats were tough, the pizzas lovely, seafood just prawns though they were nice, some strange food items not even labelled, salads and desserts not bad, seating squashy and whole place noisey and stuffy. Very expensive for what was... More

We've been plenty of times being locals in Sydney. We are also very experienced with buffet food as we travel a fair bit. We have never had cold food, bland food, just alright food at this location. To put it in perspective: we normally would eat at hatted restaurants or the higher end of the market. Lots of degustations, etc.... More
