“nice atmosphere”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Great seafood buffet with other hot foods and desserts. Indoor/outdoor dining, looking out on the pool area. A really great place to dine and/or stay.

“Very good food, service is a little relaxed”
Reviewed March 9, 2012

Great two and three course meal offer meant we could enjoy the meal for a great price. The food is fantastic, but the service a little too relaxed.

“Affordable Food Orgy”
Reviewed October 14, 2011

Mizuna, is named after an edible plant, found mainly in Japan, which is nutricious and rich in beta carotene, vitamins and minerals.
Mizuna Restaurant in the Novotel Oasis sets the standards of what all good buffets should be!
There is a delicate mix of Asian influence coupled with European Cuisine.
Fresh roast carvery, fresh fish cooked to one's desire & delight on the spot, amazing range of fresh seafood, ante pasta and fresh salads, and unusually wonderful bonus of interesting desserts (no boring bland cakes here) and for those who don't want to grow up, there is a constant flowing chocolate fountain and delicious Queensland fresh fruit.
There are also little tastings scattered around of all sorts of exotic and unusual nibbles.
We could not fault anything.
Truly yummy!
Only danger is eating much too much.
On the night we went there was a mixture of romantic couples, young and old, and groups of families. The place is big enough without losing the atmosphere, that everyone can find their own space and niche - both indoors and outdoors.
When added up, it is an absolute bargain for the limitless courses and choices, including all types of teas and coffees at the end, with a delicious cheese platter selection as the grand finale.
It is affordable anyway and a total bargain, if one is also a member of the Accor loyalty group, where one can obtain 50% discount.
Faultless and I give it my absolute highest recommendation!
