We popped in to the Sofitel for Sunday lunch for my partner's birthday. We booked and therefore we were seated at a nice table by the window looking out over Central station and the GPO. The smorgasbord was very popular and there were large queues for some stations; I do wish people would learn that pushing me in the back... More

The quality of the food and service were, as always, excellent but it seems they're becoming a victim of their own success with an overcrowded, noisy restaurant and a price tag that doesn't really match value for money anymore. We had a fabulous window table overlooking the city but generally speaking the tables were packed too close together throughout the... More

We regret doing it and will never buffet again... A waste of money at $99 per person + drinks! Firstly, one thing they do have going for them is the staff however the quality and amount of food is pathetic. Seafood and dessert are fine but everything else is average, very very average from cheese board, salads to the hot... More

Stayed at the Sofitel and ate in Thyme Restaurant for dinner and breakfast. Dinner was disappointing, very crowded, tables too close together. Food is a buffet style and very average. Seafood Buffet has a good selection but other choices very limited! Breakfast is a buffet again very crowded, long wait for a table and tables crammed in. However the buffet... More

Oyster is too salty, tiny, full of sands and shards. Lack of seafood choices and hot food choices. If you a great fan of salad, please come to this place. This is NOT a seafood buffet, its salad buffet.

Sensational quality and range at the Buffet. The a la carte also looks exceptional! We will be back to enjoy the experience again. It really is the best for fresh prawns. Service was 'above reproach'!

Went there for birthday celebration with family when there's half price dining promotion. Overall both the food and service were great with nice atmosphere. Suitable for family and couples dining. However, if compared to my first experience in 2 years ago, the food selection was less now. They used to have kilpatrick oysters and more selections of seafood salads. With... More

Thyme² is an excellent choice for those who desire to enjoy buffet dining experience surrounded in an opulence, serene ambiance. The décor is inspired by contemporary open-space French style. The additional illuminated lights installed around the buffet stations brings you modern state-of-art touch which also quite relaxing at the same time. Me and my eleven relatives including their family were... More
