“Expensive tourist trap...never again!”

I just returned home after having buffet dinner at your Starz Diner, Hard Rock Hotel, Pattaya and I have severe stomachache now. It must be from the first bite of the rotten prawns at your buffet.

What a shame to offer such rotten food to the paid customers. Utter disappointment with quality of food which was over 800 baht per head after tax.

Their sushi was worse than 10 baht per piece Mr Sushi chain at supermarket venues. I had my extended family gathering and I choose Starz Diner based on the positive tripadvisor reviews. It was my mistake not checking when those reviews were made. Never again!!! but it was expensive lesson. They charged 750 Baht plus 10% service charge plus VAT, making about 900 baht per head.

No wonder why the place was almost empty (it is considered high season) and I could not see any locals. The buffet was more or less a tourist trap. I paid dinner for the family but was sorry that the food was disappointment. Should have gone to Hilton or Thai Garden.

My children had to make a stop over at 7/11 on the way back home as the buffet had nothing for them.

Have seen a big decline in the Restaurant. Have dinned at the Hard Rock Restaurant over the last 5 years and last week will be my last. The price of the buffet has gone up to 1100 bht but the food has gone down. Used to get fresh salmon, bbq lamb chops, rock lobster and other succulent dishes. The seating is more like a cafe than a 4 star restaurant. When we visited with our group of 14 there was a Korean couple with a baby that screamed for a whole hour, made it very frustrating as we could not talk over the din, the couple just carried on eating, ignoring their child.
