Buffet very average

Our family of 4 ate at the buffet. Asian food just OK but the other food not quite good enough to enjoy on any level. The staff were not very friendly especially the ladies at the keno counter! Disappointing and we won't be back!

We visited the bowlo yesterday for their buffet lunch. Such great value for money and food is delicious with so many choices all fresh and hot. Drinks are also very reasonably priced throughout club. Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. A really great lunch and visit. Looking forward to returning soon.

Priced at $27 for anyone over 12 you would expect a higher standard of quality food and variety. We arrived at 7pm and I've seen better quality food served at school camps. The food service/display area was a mess and many of the trays empty. The selection was extremely poor and next to no fresh food on offer. If you... More
