“Cheap Buffets but not a real steakhouse”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

Basically not much better than McDonalds. All you can eat. I laugh when I recall the story of this Bahraini guy who grossly overate there and had to be conveyed to Salmaniya Hospital for treatment. What a moron! If you eat like a pig and you don't care about quality, Ponderosa is the place for you.

“food is average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2012

food is average, options are not much, most of dishes on buffet were repetitive but they have a playing area which would let your kids enjoy themselves before or after their meals

Had lunch here only one time. It was a buffet style lunch but was good for the price.

“Avoid at all costs. Seriously.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2011

It's hard to imagine a worse restaurant in all of Bahrain. It takes real effort to be this bad. Maybe the menu items are fabulous, but I wouldn't feed the buffet food to my dog. I wouldn't eat here even if they gave it away.
