I'm not a fan of this style of eating, but it was chosen by friends. Food quantity - limited only by stomach capacity, and good taste. Food quality - poor to average. Food type - cold seafood, including prawns, salads, Chinese (heavy goopy sauces), fried stuff (chips, fish, frozen stuff) roasts (baked pumpkin and potatoes with ham and beef that... More

First time visit to Forster, where to eat a normal dinner?? The "all you can eat deal" looked ok as we like a Buffet.We generally liked the range of choices available, including the nice fresh prawns, chips meats and deserts/ ice-creams. The vegies were overcooked in our opinion. There was no cold/fresh drinking water available in the dining room, So... More

Read the rules first you can't get a cold entree and go back for a hot main with the same plate BUT even if you had to pay for 2 plates that's a filling and cheap lunch. Green lipped mussels, ham with salad as an entree then follow up with fried rice, mongolian chicken, sweet and sour pork, fish fillets,... More

Where do I start, The club overall needs knocking down, its old cramped and needs an update. The food was very ordinary and had no atmosphere at all. Come in eat in bland surroundings and leave. Wont be going back.

The buffet style has a really excellent selection of food. It offers an extensive range and variety catering for all tastes. Visit the food section and eat as much as you want. Better to try a wide range of small almounts to savour the really good qaulity food available. The $20 price is really good value for money and caters... More

Average food, slightly overpriced. The most annoying thing was having to slice your own meat, particularly when there is many people.

All you can eat buffet style meals. Plenty of variety with rice, stir fries, seafood, roasts etc. Good fresh fruit selections available. Popular with the locals and cheap. It's not fine dining by any means but a pleasant place for a filling meal. No need to book.

Never seen so many pigs in all my life. Not sure what goes on here, do people not eat for a month prior to going to this joint. Yes, it is a buffet, but that doesn't excuse the behaviour of some. Management seemed very un-professional just trying to get as many people through the door as possible. I will never... More

Always a great place to eat. The smorgasbord has a fantastic array to choose from. The fresh prawns and Chinese selection is out of this world.
