Lunch at the Coffee Shop Wrest Point 3 August 2015 -12 noon

1. The 'free meal' promotion took a lot of time and it was lucky the queue to be seated was short. I would hate to see a long line of diners. Staff were doing their very best to expedite it. Maybe a rethink needs to be done by the 'brains trust' 2. Have a look around the buffet, there is... read more

Found it was very expensive for the small variety of food ... $34.50 for a basic roast and veggies .. Probably the smallest Buffett I've been to in awhile ..

Absolutely disgusting the food was bland and unappetising nothing christmas at all a few decorations doesn't make for Christmas in July. There wasn't anything suitable for the Kids to eat although charged $20..50 per child. Payment was up front before you ate I think that was because when you saw the food you couldn't walk out. A very disappointing night... More

We had dinner for the first time in 10 years. I was quit disappointed in quality of some food. Rice was actually from packet, it was not the real, just tasted like corn flour. Some of cakes were still flozen inside. Roast, salada and baked fish was ok though.

We had dinner and it was all you can eat. $34.50 per person. There is a wide selection of foods, including soups, salads, roast meats, pasta dishes, baked vegies and lots of desserts.

It's bland. It's boring. It's outdated. It's tasteless. A lot of it appears to be packet food. All of the cakes I have seen offered in other cafes and therefore must be bought in frozen packaged tasteless rubbish. The meats were overcooked, the gravy dish was empty, basically there are no flavours... There is a coffee machine. It's loud and... More
