“Better than expected”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

I believe these guys take in feedback and work to improve. 6 of us went here on a Groupon and were pleasantly suprised. Although we didn't pay full price, the full price was comparitive with other buffet restaurants.

The restaurant itself is huge and we did not feel cramped. The food selection was good - they had some good old favourties. If you are looking for something exotic then you might like to try somewhere else. The quality was good too. Everything was clean.

Our waitress was quite difficult to get hold of though. Perhaps it would be better to place the drinks in the buffet too!

We had a good time here.

“great place to dine”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Great place to dine. The food is divine especially the sea food served only on Friday nights & Saturday nights, Brilliantly priced compared to other restaurants of its class. A nice theme and setting. Worth every cent.

“Food absolutely Terrible”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

Although this can be regarded as a "budget" restaurant, the buffet left much to be desired. Very limted choices of starters which was not marked clearly and appart from maybe the bread our party of 12 found the rest sub-standard. Mains were tastless with the toughest meat I've eaten in my life also not with a great variety. Some of the dessert options were not that bad but to pay thir price for a dessert only is simply not worth it. The quality of the food served by this establishment declined noticably over the last 5 years.
