5* Review Thank You Emily. So pleased you enjoyed
No enough room between people. We had to eat with our elbows pinned to our sides. Other than that, great food & service. Thanks
Thanks for the very honest and constructive feedback. Agree that being too tight is extremely annoying and makes it hard to relax. Will ask the team to see how we can improve. Really happy you enjoyed the food. Hope we get to look after you again
A fantastic meal!!!!
So pleased you enjoyed Amanda. Hope to see you again soon
Very disappointed this morning. Coffee machine wasn't work properly and the alternative pots were almost empty. Food ok, but not up to usual standard.
Big apologies Louise. The reason we have 2 machines is so we are covered if one goes down but having 2 down is so unusual. Gutted you felt the food was not as good as normal. The buffet we put out is almost identical every week. Have asked our team to keep an eye on the quality we are putting infront of our guests. Thanks and again accept my apologies
The service is always with a smile and food is divine compliments our large group of 12 friends with an atmosphere of love and laughter.
5* Review. Katrina your kind words about our staff will put such a huge smile on their faces. It is so good that they are acknowledged. For that I THANK YOU!!!
Dealer always wins!!!

Thank you so much Katrina. Couldn't fault is as good as I can ask for!

5* review Jinhao THANKS YOU!!
We had our team xmas function at the Grand Cafe & everyone was very happy with the xmas buffet meal and service provided by the Grand Cafe team.
Christine a 5* Review. we are so pleased you gave us the opportunity to look after your group for Christmas lunch. You have so many choices out there and we are truly grateful you chose us.
Thank you for a lovely meal
We just love 5* Reviews Abigail. Thank You so much. we are so happy you enjoyed.
Amazing variety, top quality food, well organised setting, absolute value for money. Must be one of Christchurchs best kept secrets, needs more advertising to let everyone know. I only found out through word of mouth
Flora make sure you tell your friends. Thank you so much for the great 5* review and the feedback. we agree that it is one of Christchurch's best kept secrets
Great service, friendly attentive staff, fabulous food, lovely atmosphere.
Jil you are a legend. The team just love receiving 5* reviews. Hope we get to see you again soon.
Been here a few times since opening it's buffet format. Found the food on this occasion a bit bad, namely because it is now a Christmas menu so variety is pretty limited and what was there was not to our taste. Also it is a shame that the first table version doesn't give the option of obtaining card points as you are still paying for food.
Thanks for the feedback Janelle. It is the season I am afraid and we have so many Xmas groups coming through that we try and accommodate them as much as we can. Sorry we didn't hit the mark for you this time. The 50% off Food via first table is such a good deal and I am glad you took advantage of this great saving. If you swiped your members card you would have received the members benefit no matter what as this is automatic
Awesome service when arriving.
We love 5* Reviews. We were delighted to look after such a delightful bunch. So glad you enjoyed Shelley
Didn't get players club discount. Supposedly not available during peak times which haven't notice in advertising. Guess my bad.
Thanks for the Feedback Sydney. The Discount was available over Winter and to keep introducing more guests to the buffet. We will do specials moving forward so keep an eye out. Glad you enjoyed the buffet and hope we get to see you again.
My friend & I went to another brunch buffet at the Casino today. The selection today was the best yet & we walked away full and happy. The casino buffets are the best in Christchurch and Ive been to a few. You always get consistanty in the quality of food, which is not the case for many buffet establishments.
EK -Thank you so much. The team try so hard to get consistency and I am very happy you notice. Look forward to seeing you again.
