“Great pizzas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

We stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel and dined here almost every day for lunch. On the first day we sat at the restaurant. The staff are so friendly and the food delicious. We had salads, pizzas and burgers. Subsequent days we would have our lunch by the pool by ordering at the pool bar 'The Shack' who would send the order to Starz Diner. The kids loved all the pizzas, satay and chips/wedges. We also ordered cocktails, mock tails and drinks. Fully recommend dining by the pool. Quite decadent.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

We went to the Starz buffet for breakfast. The staff were well trained and friendly, the décor was pleasant, the coffee was great, but considering theRM48++ price-tag, I have to say that the food was a tad disappointing…. Definitely not 5 star.

There was no muesli or yoghurt, limited selection of breads, limited selection of cheeses, no camembert, no smoked salmon, smoked trout or caviar. Even the Asian selection seemed to be rather limited.

“Starz American Buffet Rocks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

I am a stage pass member, my family and I are frequent visitors to Hard Rock Penang. We have just started going to the American Buffet Dinner on weekends. They are such great value and have a HUGE selection of good ol' American Food. From delicious finger licking buffalo wings to New York cheesecake, these guys have American Food covered. The service is great and the staff have fun keeping the kids smiling whilst we eat (a lot). Definitely need to loosen the belt when your done........Don't forget to try the doughnuts!
