I have eaten at many buffets before, and as the food was great, I do think it should be $28/$30 (not $38) or for that price maybe include a drink. Staff were excellent!

Quite small it was quite tricky manoeuvring around the tables and people things weren't there from photos online and I'll be 100% honest there wasn't much of a selection the price should be $25 for that buffet

Coffee was weak and tasted burnt..after telling waitress she made us another cup each..which was equally as poor however we werent charged for this which was nice. Carvery was mis leading in advertising as only lamb was served so not much of a selection. Beans, tomatoes and toast would have been nice to go with breakfast foods. We weren't asked how our meals were or offered more drinks. Expected more as casino gives impression of being more up market then your everyday buffet.

Thank you for the feedback Jane. we are making changes to our tea & Coffee Service that will give you control. we are working very hard to offer a brunch that is both tasty, substantial and at a value price. $22.50 for members we feel is great value for what is offered. we can always improve and that is what we are striving to do. Thank You

I have been to the grand café for dinner many times so expected the same quality of food I have enjoyed then. Unfortunately the food in your buffet was below the standard I was expecting. As this was for my mother's 70th birthday I was very upset as I had recommended you to my family.

Really sorry you didn't enjoy Julie. The general feedback has been very positive but buffets can be a bit divisive. Sorry we didn't hit the mark this time.

The best buffet in town... well done - quality food and a great selection... would be better still if basic coffee and tea was included (and then you pay for speciality coffees separately)... but regardless - we have really enjoyed the buffet - as already, even though Fusion hasn't been open that long, we have been a few times! So must be good... really good!
