We ate with friends. The concept is great, eight kitchens all providing different food but in practice it is almost too much choice. Prices were a bit on the steep side but we had a great evening.

Their food is pretty normal. The variety is absolutely disappointing. The only positive thing would be they only cook the food when you order. However, the food doesn't look nor taste like the food supposed to be in a $85 buffet. At the end, while paying the bill, we were all shocked they were not to split the bill. They... More

Everyone should have the chance to eat here. It has the best food and everyone we have taken has absolutely loved this place. You can choose whatever foods you like - we normally choose from an abundance of seafood but the sushi bar is awesome. So whatever your fancy (within reason they have more than enough variety to please)

I only had the breakfast here, but WOW, it was the best breakfast I've ever had at a hotel. There was virtually everything and thoroughly enjoyable. A great way to start the day!

I have visited a number of times as it is by far the best buffet in Auckland. Eight serving stations cook and serve to order. The ambience is marvelous. Luxury and quality with amazing food and service.

The experience my family and I had at the restaurant was simply awesome. Great food and an awesome staff to go with it - each and everyone of them truly deserves praise for the warmth and courtesy they extend to all their customers. The buffet had one of the best spreads one could experience and believe you me - while... More

A great place to meet for lunch or dinner, many choices from Indian, to Chinese, to fish and mets and more all freshly cooked and prepared as you want. Significant range of deserts. The biggest challenges are what will you eat and second to moderate your intake as it is very easy to select too much. Great place for groups... More
