Very good buffet restaurant, with a good range. Like the lasagna, the vegetarian specials and vegetables, nicely cooked fresh food. Good service with table regularly cleared and food regularly refreshed. We keep returning and always enjoy.
Great meal and service
Waitress our friendly and quick to learn your dishes from your table.
Very beautiful in everything they do...
nice would definatly go again
Great variety menu choices. One of the biggest I have seen for a while. Nice to see such a large choice in meats and seafood. Nice hot vegetable dishes and once again an excellent variety of choices. Everything I ate was great, hit and fresh tasting
All good thanks
The resteraunt was over whelmed when a large party came in just after us . The kitchen was not warned and most of the food disappeared causing a lot of people to wait a long time for it to be replenished Otherwise it was good
At $35.50 per head it is very expensive. We were a party of 19 people, of which one was a 13 year old at full price - she wouldn't have eaten anywhere near that amount of food and neither did those of us in the over 60's age group. Love the variety of food and the presentation. it is just too expensive at the new price of $35.50. Drop it back down to under $30 any night of the week, and particularly for over 60's and we would definitely come back.
Good value for money, great food and desserts and the staff are always friendly and helpful.
Great selection of food and very tasty always leave with a full stomach
Every time I went up there were empty dishes where food should've been, spent 10 min waiting for certain deserts to be replaced, and the plates on our table only got taken away twice in an hour! We used to love this place but it was awful on Wednesday. Will not be coming back.
Fantastic food and selections, an enjoyable family night was had.
Everything was perfect 🥰
Love the new deserts that been offered.
Never a fail coming here. We don’t come as much as we would love too. But trust me when we do we love it whole heartedly. From the service at front desk to our table, then the food and also the workers you have such lovely smiles and are always genuinely happy to be there. It’s a beautiful place. Just wish you had a play area for the kids. Or even better some entertainment for kids like colouring in books and comps. Also advise more out there for your business. I don’t see as much advertising for this lovely place. I know a lot of people know about the gardens restaurant. But not enough to keep yous pumping.
Spoke to the young lady at the counter about our meal being cold when we visited the restaurant a fortnight ago. She was very good. Checked the food temperature. Came to us during our meal to check all was ok. Made sure we enjoyed our meal.
The buffet was absolutely perfect for our leavers’ dinner - the perfect solution for a group of teenage boys. Thank you!
am afraid to say we were both disapointed in the food, variety wasnt that great and food tasted a bit bland. Roast beef was greatly over cooked. Best part was the dessert selections.
Wonderful restaurant and good services plus delicious food. Only if the prize for adult during the week go down to $28 or $29 dollars like before.
Amazing experience, the food was beautiful and very fresh. So much to select from, and plenty of it. Will definitely be back.
Very enjoyable meal lots to choose from. Happy friendly staff.
i think the price is too dare for kids
