Unfortunately, there are many negative things I have to say about this place, but I will start off with a positive. Some of the Chinese cuisine was delicious, namely, the various chicken dishes. But that is where my positivity ends. Practicality - The seating was cramped and quite uncomfortable. We were seated at the back of the restaurant, and our... More

Best Chineese Eva!!!! Al All you can eat buffet, good variety. Very clean. Reasonable prices. Desert was very basic but overall a dinner winner for our family. We have now visited twice on our last two visits to Forster and surrounds and haven't been disappointed.

Traditional bowling club, 2 choices of food, either buffet or single meals. We opted for single meals and paid less than $18 in total for salt & pepper squid, chips and salad, plus chicken snitty, chips and salad. The meal was fresh, hot and there was plenty on the plate. Absolute value for money and the meal was delicious. We... More

Danny's is one of only a few all-you-can-eat buffets in the Manning/ Great Lakes area. Situated in the Bowling Club, the restaurant itself lacks finesse, the tables set close together in a huge hall, the cutlery given out in paper sleeves. It's not my idea of a romantic place to eat or even somewhere I'd choose for a social get-together,... More

A very interesting Bowling club with a Family orientated Restaurant, all you can eat with typical Chinese style food, fresh cooked prawns, a simple salad bar & desert bar consisting of Pavlova, supermarket-bought cheesecake with some cup cakes & mousse with fresh cream. I was hoping for a reasonably priced deal with my partner which cost $25 each for all... More

Disgusting, arrived about 7.30 pm, paid and checked the Bain Marie. Food was cold, overlooked and tough. Most dishes appeared to pre prepared items with a few meat dishes thrown in. Even the noodles were tasteless. Meal repeated on me all nite.

My husband and I ate here each night for the 2 nights we stayed in Forster. The club was only a few minutes drive from our motel so very convenient. I normally do not like buffet meals and the food is usually very stodgy and doesn't always taste fresh. Here the salads and seafood were very fresh and tasty. The... More

I came here last week for a nice meal with my partner. We both found it satisfactory. Food was delicious. And you certainly get your value for money :)

Scruffy bargain hunting clientel which would have made Homer Simpson feel at home. The food was reasonable, the roast pork was well had a strange texture and the prawns quite tasteless although they looked attractive enough.
