This is definitely the worst buffet experience ever. Bad service, disgusting food, it is clearly overpriced. I don't know what to say, but I assume that couples might end up badly after dinning here once.

We had some Viator vouchers to use in Sydney so we booked this restaurant for my mother and daughter's birthday. Totally underwhelming from booking - we couldn't use two vouchers at once so I emailed the restaurant to join the bookings together. When we arrived, Sydney Tower check-in were clueless to my email and had us seated separately - my... More

Went here for dinner last night. Please dont waste your money. Other than the fabulous view there was nothing appealing about this place. The food was beyond terrible, cold and tasteless. You would get better at your local club and the staff are not friendly at all.

Cannot recommend highly enough! The choice of food was amazing, there were four of us and we had booked in advance, when we arrived we didn't have a window table, but after a word with the waitress we moved within 10 minutes. We all enjoyed our choices and wished we had enough time for a return visit.

We were amazed by the views when we went for our twilight sitting. The food was great for adults but but not great for our fussy younger kids. Luckily kids eat free on Monday and Tuesday so they were eating free. Be prepared for large tour groups to descend and take over the buffet. Still, a beautiful way to view... More

The entre was overpriced for 4 oysters, they weren't chilled and were not a very pleasant taste. The main courses were acceptable. As we were here for a special occasion, the overall experience was disappointing.

It was time for bit of "couple time", to reflect on the week that was, hold hands and enjoy the view. I did not have time to look at the menu before we arrived but booked dinner for two as the set price was affordable. But just be aware that there are lots of extra charges if you want meat... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
