We enjoyed our evening at the newly revamped and renamed Stratosfare Restaurant. Had a table by the window with great views. It can be very busy on weekends with approx. 500 diners per night so we chose to dine during the week. The buffet had an extensive selection and the food quality and layout was very good. Ordered a celebration... More

A group of four of us went to the bar for a 'pre-luge drink'. We then went and sat outside to enjoy the view. The bar manager, Kunal Sharma, made the effort to come out and chat to us about where we were from and the upcoming plans for the restaurant. He was very pleasant and the conversation seemed natural... More

Upon arriving to the restaurant, we were greeted well and shown to our table. While it is understood to be a buffet, very little was delivered in the way of explanation to how we should go about the night including how to order the extra food such as the Wagyu steak which was not included in the buffet price (that...

My family and I decided to have lunch here instead of staying in our motel and cooking. I must say it is the best buffet I have came across. The food was so tasty and delicious I was honestly so amazed. However it was quiet pricey for just the 3 of us but I definitely can't complain especially with the... More

Had a wonderful day out with family. Everything wasso much fun to do & the staff were so helpful and encouraging. However what spoil it was them shutting down one chair lift at least an hour before close causing massive delays and time lost out on the rides - that was terribly disappointing
