Great buffet!

Visited this buffet twice - about a month apart. weekend lunches include unlimited sparkling wine which makes it for a great celebration venue. It does get busy and sometimes you have to get the attention of staff to top up your drink but it is what it is! Second time I went I was expecting the... read 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.

Had dinner with a few friends last Sunday. We struck the seafood buffet. The prawns and mussels were delicious; the oysters a little on the small side. There were good selections of both hot and cold dishes so even if you didn't like seafood, there was still plenty of choice. The chocolate fountain was a bonus, but the dessert selection... More

Best buffet dining in Brisbane with views of the city. If you like seafood and dessert this is the place to go in Brisbane. Saturday and Sunday includes sparkling wine.

Had dinner with a few friends with the seafood and middle eastern buffet. Must say it was a good variety of foods for every taste. There was always a replenishing of seafood quickly and chefs actively walking around/greeting you. There wasn't a massive line like in a few Brisbane restaurants lately.

Having previously enjoyed a buffet breakfast at this restaurant I did not hesitate to take a friend there for a evening meal. What a shock!! For nearly $100 per head this place, which is supposedly 5*, serves up a disgusting meal. Nothing was refilled in the hot roast section, the salads were pathetic and were strewn all over the place.... More

I have been to the Thyme Restaurant a few times now for lunch and dinner. My recent experience was at Christmas time 2014 and 2013. The staff are quick with the service but some seemed to be stressed especially at Christmas. In 2013 we had an amazing dinner there for Christmas and were seated next to a prominent Qld Judge...

The bugs clearly overcooked some where that... More

We went there for Mother's Day dinner and absolutely enjoyed it. Plenty of fresh seafood, cold & hot food. If you are not a seafood lover, don't worry they also have hot roast meat and other variety of hot & cold meat dishes. Dessert, tea & coffee are included as well. Go there, enjoy it & have a good time!
