Good food (not a huge selection) but fresh and yummy. Entertraiment book has 25% off the bill or 20% off on the voucher booklet that you can find at jupiters casino.

Alright let's start with the positives

Good enough service taking into consideration their high volume work
Friendly staff
Good and timely replenishing of foods
Fantastic selection of desert items.

Now to elaborate on the rest:
I dined here during lunchtime hours so my meal was only around $30 with absolutely no seafood. As some other reviewers have mentioned, there IS a lot of filler items and very little meat or things of real value. They have done well to hide this. The carvery is poor, the only meet I encountered was fatty beef curry and frozen fish fillets. So you tell me where exactly the value is?

There are heaps of rice, breads and pasta available to fill you up and if that wasn't enough, an EXCELLENT selection of bread and overly carbonated soft drinks. Their asian style pad thai had european button style mushrooms on it. Seriously? Is that what they meant by Food Fantasy??? I mean you could've at least put asian style mushrooms in it like everything else in the dish that was consistent with asian food.

Value wise it was ok. They did a great job of making me feel there was a good selection of food. As usual, do do do leave space for deserts as it is about the only thing at Food Fantasy worth eating and getting exciting about. The selection and variety for deserts is better than anything else there!

We had to wait in line for almost 90 minutes because table reservations are unavailable for the seafood buffet on Saturday nights. Nevertheless, it was worth the wait. The oysters were small but very tasty and the bugs were a little dry, but everything else we tried was superb. Food Fantasy has the usual array of options expected of a good smorgasbord. However, what sets FF above most is the quality of the food. nothing bland amongst this lot. Make sure you save some room for the desert bar. The service clearing tables wasn't as quick as some other buffets we've been to (like Miss Maud's in Perth)...but I still have to give FF 5 stars overall just for the food. Best buffet I've been to and terrific value at $55 per head.

Lunch is well priced, fresh, and food is constantly replenished. Great variety, staff are pleasant and friendly. You can also get a discount for seniors or you can get a discount of 15percent from a coupon in one of the gold coast brocures.

Dined here whilst in Broadbeach....For a casino buffet thought it was very expensive to be charged around the $60 mark. I know it was a Sat night but seriously? To be fair it does include seafood and soft drinks.

The food options were quite diverse and the waitstaff whilst a little abrupt and a little overworked by the looks of it were polite enough.

Food quality seemed pretty good and as mentioned a lot of variety.
