A great buffet. I have been here many times. They have themed weeks, sometimes French or Italian or Indian. Just check beforehand. They always have seafood however so if you like prawns and oysters this is the place for you. You can also include beverages in the buffet package. A great choice... read more

I can’t believe I haven’t reviewed this restaurant yet, considering that this has always been our go-to place for a special occasion dinner whenever we visit Brisbane. We enjoy coming to this restaurant to experience the all-you-can-eat interactive buffet in a fancy location overlooking Brisbane’s Anzac Square (lovely atmosphere, the view of the city lights is quite pretty). There's something... More

The food is always very good. It is a buffet lunch and always has small bowls which are constantly replenished. The salads always change and are delicious. The seafood is very fresh and delicious. The hot food is always very good and there are many choices. There is a vast array of desserts, which I am told are very good,... More

Travelling for work means you don't want to over eat. Fantastic buffet breakfast at Thyme with a heap of healthy organic options with French treats.

Two weeks prior to this visit, Sofitel had a stand at Southbank's French Food Festival. We sampled the desserts they offered which tasted amazing. One of the staff kindly gave us a discount voucher for Thyme which encouraged us to go today. Lets talk about the food: great fresh salads, prawn and asparagus salad was delectable, cured meats, sushi, fresh... More

Sydney rock oysters by the dozens if you like. Mussels, large prawns. Salmon, and more. Had coq au vin as well as slow cooked braised lamb shoulder and both cooked to perfection. Seafood bisque was spot on. Oysters were fresh. I can't fault a thing. Our host jayden owned it like a boss. Seriously need to get to the gym... More

We were very disappointed with the food and buffet which was advertised as a seafood buffet. We expected the best seafood ever, prawns were watery like they had just been defrosted, they ran out of bugs at 6.40pm, the crab bodies were so tiny I did not think they were legal size, oysters only supplied one way - natural, mussels...

We called ahead to make find out the seafood selection, the reception assured us there were Moreton bay bugs on the menu, based on this information we made a reservation to eat just 1 hour later. Upon arriving we were seated and discovered there were no bugs. After enquiring with the maitre' he said we do not have bugs tonight.... More

Recently had dinner in this restaurant and what can I say but it was well above average. The selection was large and varied and the dessert buffet was one of the best I have seen. If in Brisbane, do yourself a favour and have at least one dinner here.
