Prices of drinks are very expensive. $13 for a jug of soda and $18 for two small bourbon bottles is rediculous. Also would love to see a bigger salad and cold meat selection would be great !. Otherwise food is wonderful .
A great place to dine in
Thought the service was great - tables cleared quickly. Food was nice although disappointed that the steak was well overdone. Food kept stocked up and was very nice - great variety.
We really enjoyed the variety of food.
very nice meal
Awesome staff amazing service. Highly recommended 👏👏
Great meal. Plenty of variety. Plenty of room between seats.
We were a bit uncomfortable due to not being able to move from our table till the other table moved. We did ask the people if they could move their chairs in, yet they may have not understood.
Very good dishes were quickly replenished and Yummy however missed prawns and ham
Foods and service is great but maybe a couple of (2) more main meals to the current menu will be fine..
An excellent place to dine. Such a large selection of food. You never go away hungry and the desserts are so yummy. Well worth a visit.
Was awesome, fully packed which was great. The only issue was the ice cream machine ran out and took about 5-10 minutes to refill which was annoying for the kids otherwise loved it and would be back.
Absolutely love the place. My partner and i always make a point of visiting when we are down in Christchurch,will be back again.
My kids like this place
Tables very close difficult to get to your chair
Very amazing place great food but the cost for drinks were expensive but there was free coffee milo tea, water with ice & lemon slice. Needs to change menu Abit as no baked potato.
Excellent service and food
Had a great lunch out for my birthday. Food and service up to standard and staff were warm and helpful.
Staff give a warm welcome, and allow you the freedom to help oneself to the buffet. Tables are regularly cleared of used crockery and all runs smoothly.
Always a lovely lunch plenty of variety for my husband and myself.
I can't think of a better place to celebrate my birthday! Lovely staff and the selection of food was excellent as always. We'll be back!
We really enjoyed the atmosphere and the service was excellent so much food to chose from well worth the money we will definitely go back
Great value for the money
All the food was cold.
