The big plus is that you can eat as much as you want.
The buffet choices, mostly seafood orientated, are not bad but the fish was overly dry to the point of being tasteless. Mass produced food which is sadly lacking in any sense care or pride in its production. The same could be said for the service which was brusque and minimal at best.
The bier didn’t cost that much more than other establishments.
Only bother with this if you really are very hungry and want a huge feed.

They didn't inform u that there is a time limit before u start eating. When u start to eat they will come n collect payment and than only inform u on the time limit. They purposely delay on cooking the seafood bbq so that you won't have time to order more n it taste horrible cos the seafood is not fresh. Service is terrible as they show u the face like u r eating for free

I ordered off the menu instead of opting for the buffet, I did take a look at the buffet. Generally, all the bbcue restaurants here have about the same seafood displayed, Progress had some huge prawns while I was here. Very friendly folks and good food.

Seafood buffet at 490THB each, you get 90 mins to pig it out.
Not inclusive of drinks of course.

My buddy and myself decided to give this a go as it is right next to the place we stayed.
The huge tray of seafood at the entrance will surely get your attention.

Choose the seafood you want to be BBQ get seated and eat away.
Oh, you do have to pay first unlike most places where you pay when you are done.

The food is not that bad, I prefer the prawns that was cooked from the buffet selection rather than BBQ.I find them better prepared compared to plane BBQ.

Over all, easy deal. Eat all you want and get totally stuffed.

Because of the "Buffet" Seafood BBQ, we step into the shop for our Dinner.

The some batch of the prawn was not fresh, and our squid was over cooked.

If you looking for quality dinner, then you should avoid this restaurant.

Quantity wise, endless BBQ fish, prawn, squid supplies :)
