    The selection of food was very disappointing. None to little salads or vegetable choices. Lots of meat. But no fresh salads. Also deserts were just packaged cakes. Nothing seemed made. It's not worth the price.

    Food was ok. Not much of a selection for hot foods it was very basic. Dessert was great and the service was excellent our waiter was so friendly. Not sure if we would come again we purchased the voucher so i wouldnt be paying full price.

    Farmed Prawn with no flavour and Barnacles impersonating Oysters, cold mussells with again with no flavor, baby octopus like rubber bands , not a seafood buffet worth the asking $79 a head. Alternate dishes were Beef, Lamb and Ham. Lamb was grisly and the only meat dish cooked , all others were well over cooked . Dessert all were grease and lacked flavour .

    With online voucher discount, the buffet is good at value. Oysters, crabs and prawns are fresh enough. Other hot food are nice.

    Beware of large tour groups. I was unfortunate enough to encounter one. The small food stations made picking difficult. Fortunately it was a well behaved Japanese tour group. Fresh oysters and prawns were the two things the restaurant had to show for. Curry was reportedly tasty. Otherwise nothing special. 50% buffet price was about the right price.
