You get what you pay for.

I guess this place just proves that you get what you pay for, cheap enough price but the food is not the greatest quality. If you like the typical "all you can eat buffet" then you will probably enjoy this venue. However for me I think it was a mistake, lots of fried and asian food, the roast beef... read more

This club is within walking distance of where we stay when holidaying in Port so we usually eat here when we want a quick easy meal. It offers a buffet of soups, roast, salads, Chinese food and desserts. It is typical "cheap and cheerful" club dining. Good for a quick meal. Friendly staff and cheap drinks, including local wines.

Had a Saturday buffet lunch with my wife - the food is okay if you like Asian food however not much variety if you don't. My wife does not eat Asian and therefore had few options - the carvery was ham or sliced beef pieces (which looked as bad as it tasted and tough to chew) - seafood option consisted... More

The buffet has a very good selection of both traditional and Asian style dishes. Also a good selection of deserts. One of the better menus in clubland.

This was a smorgasboard of food. Lots of variety. All well cooked or presented. The night we were there was exceptionally busy with queues down the sdtairs to the front door. This is an indication of how good it is - nothing else. The line moved along fairly well. So, whilst it was a bit 'clubby' the value for money... More

Wife and I booked a table with Mother in law (local), months in advance. The whole event was a catastrophe with the club ringing us in the morning to remind us and giving us the wrong time. We turned up late with most tables already eating. Three course meal was mediocre at best, service was abysmal and at $120 per... More
