Different food experience. Meats, seafoods laid in dishes for selection. Raw veges the same. Selection of sauces and oils. Take to cooks who put on a hot plate and cook while you wait. It's a buffet style eatery, eat all you can. Pleasant experience.

A great place to visit. Friendly staff, plates cleared quickly, vast choices, & fresh food. They went the extra mile at the pancake cooking station by making my 8 year old a 'Mickey Mouse' pancake. Lots if other food options apart from the main stuff. Would def return.

We have been told about this place & final got there. We were welcome with a friendly smile, shown to a table & given a good clear rundown as to how the buffet works. Then it was off to try the food---- well what can you say, about from awesome. You pick how & what you want to mix & eat & have it cooked in front of you & boy it tastes great. Great value for your money. Would we good again OOO yes.

Of the many dining experiences we have had this would be one of the best ever....a smorgasbord in a different style. You choose how healthy you wish to eat OR NOT..as the case may be...the meal is cooked in front of the customer...the service was prompt the menu and process was explained, our drinks came quickly and away we went for as long as we liked....The STAFF were cheerful and attentive and made us feel very comfortable. The price was very good as well....Thank you all....we will return....

Town was super quiet, that was until we arrived at Gengys.. the restaurant was a hub of activity & the staff were all really busy. We arrived without a reservation & were shown to a centre table. This was my first visit, so our waitress gave us a quick rundown as to how the buffet worked. She took our drinks order of cocktails (they have really good specials:)

Yummy fresh, hot soup for starters. Then I grabbed a plate & chose chicken, egg noodles, veges - broccoli, carrots etc, added what sauces I wanted (honey soy) & chose peanut oil for cooking. The guys at the massive hotplate were kept really busy with everyone arriving with their plates of food to be cooked, they appear to have phenomenal memories & hand back plates of cooked food to the right people. The cooking was carried out with style & flair (awesome performance in itself!). Down the otherside of the buffet I chose from fried rice, spring rolls, salad etc.

My Pina Colada had arrived in a timely manner & the mini umbrella & plastic giraffe added heaps of character! For dessert - fresh pancakes cooked in front of us, then icecream, fruit etc of my choosing.. delicious!

Overall a great place to dine - fresh, delicious, steaming hot food. Attentive, timely service, great prices. Only drawback was restaurant was really noisy (it was packed with people on a Friday night) & my friend & I couldn't really hear each other - but we were too busy eating, anyway:)

Highly recommended.
