“Worth the wait!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

We went for dinner on one of the Saturdays in July, when they were having a Christmas in July themed buffet dinner along with the usual seafood. They don't take bookings, so our family started queuing at 6.30pm and got into the restaurant slightly over an hour later. Thankfully, the food was worth the wait and the $55 price per person. I loved the oysters and prawns (didn't like the crayfish which were rubbery), and the Christmas in July items (Roast turkey, ham, pumpkin and desserts) were delicious. I especially loved the baked salmon from the roasts area, very very good. We would love to visit again for the seafood buffet, but perhaps we will go earlier next time so that we won't have to wait so long!

“Long Wait for Terrible Food and Service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

After waiting 1hr in a line, that nobody tells you how long its going to be, thinking wow this must be amazing, to get in there and the food-what was left was mostly cold and the staff didn't want to know to seem to care.Both the roasts cold, nuggets cold, potato bake was very inconsistent- being hot 1 time and cold a different batch.The salads were good but I didn't wait 1hr to eat a salad.The deserts had more variety than mains for some strange reason.Wouldnt go back again.

“Great Birthday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

We went today for a 70th birthday and would like to thank the staff and supervisor Michelle for organizing our booking.
The restaurant was very busy with other larger tables and a large function..ok some had to wait a minute or two for the hot food but other wise I did not experience any frustrations at all.
All the food was most enjoyable.
The food accommodated everyone.
Thanks Food Fantasy.

We went there for a birthday celebration and found the food to be of excellent quality. I especially love the cheese cake for dessert. Will go back there again. Highly recommended!

“Best Buffet I have ever eaten”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Was visiting my daughter in Broadbeach took her and her boyfriend out for the Friday night seafood buffet and it was wonderful. The variety of food was awesome as was the freshness of the food. I am often disappointed when I eat at a buffet but not this time in fact it was the best buffet I have ever eaten at.
