The Eight is the best buffet restaurant i have been to in a long time. Everything was fresh, and there were live kitchen / cooking stations where you can get you meal cooked as per your choice. The Sea Food selection is wide and by far the best. And not to forget the dessert counter, so much to choice from.... More

We have been disappointed so many times by buffets in the past. Too often things are pre-frozen which mean they are tasteless and watery. This restaurant had heaps to choose from, everything was really fresh and if you are a seafood lover it is the best ever seafood fix! My hubby enjoyed all the meats and there a stacks of... More

For the price, I expected a bit more of a fine dining experience. Instead we went to 8 different stations to get our meal. Food was ok, but not worth the price.

What a wonderful selection of foods. Way too much to choose from, so take your time and try a little of each. The chocolate fountain was a favourite.

While you have to commit the cash to enjoy this formidable food fantasy it is worth the splash. The many and varied treats on the grill were special. Trying Alpaca and Ostrich fresh off the grill was a food first. Dessert - resistance is futile.

Very fun 8 station "buffet". All done in elegant but contemporary styling. Most stations had cooked to order options. Eight stations included Indian, Japanese sushi, Chinese seafood, Western grill (including alpaca, beef, kangaroo), Salad, Oyster bar, bread and dessert. Impeccable Service. Staff makes it a fun foodie experience. Beautifully presented. Choose as many or as few choices as you desire.... More

If you've got some cash to spend, do yourself a favor and come here - fast. As a foodie I can tell you I died and went to heaven here. I mean first off, a waiter takes you through the metropolis of food on display and explains every aspect of it for you (goals). Secondly, the amount you can chose... More
