Well priced buffet. All you can eat, it was great. The food was really tasty and they kept filling the buffet bar with meat not just veggies like some places. Would continue to go there.

Another place in Northland not to darken the door again and they have been given a few chances too.

We had a family celebration and decided to give them another chance and attended a buffet dinner on a Sunday night.

The place didn't appear to be that clean and the wine list had been wiped down with a cloth but felt greasy. Not a good start.

They have a pretty good menu on the buffet nights but this time the food was cold and not that appealing. We were too scared to tell the owner that her food was cold, so we put up with it.

On another occasion she became very keen for us to finish our meal as the night had not been that busy and she obviously wanted to close the doors. She just about took our plates away before we had finished, so very rude and brash.

We will never return, the restaurant has been going backwards for some time. There are some lovely Thai restaurants in Whangarei and we are treated with respect there. Bad luck Tai Tong.

Use to eat here for weekend lunch. After 3 not so good experiences have given up. Food lacked taste and some was dry and overcooked. Shame!

Buffet for us tonight was $21 per head. Lovely staff but you couldn't get me there again even if you paid me. Fairly tasteless fare with variety but much of it overcooked....actually left thinking I hope I dont get sick from eating here. Lots of foods were stocked to minimum which meant they were often 'out' of things although they do refil when asked. Such as shame as they seemed lovely people.
