I was expecting a top sea food restaurant and I found it to be just average. I could have gone anywhere to get the same type of food. The ravioli was hard and chewy. The Thai curry was standard, the starters were basic. I won’t be returning due to the food but the staff were very attentive and welcoming.

We bought 2 Groupon tickets for the sushilicious experience at the Moana on Saturday. Except for the welcoming receptionist at the restaurant, the staff was really not meeting the expectations for a restaurant in a 5* hotel: if they were quite reactive to bring plates or refill ice tea, they seemed pretty bored and a smile would have partially compensated the food. The tasters were very ordinary and the sushi plates which are all the same were prepared in advance with ingredients way below expectations leading to very ordinary sushis. Even with the discount I felt the quality was not good enough.. the atmosphere and the place are quite nice though. very disappointing for such a brand. I would not recommend this place.

Excellent organisation at such a busy time. Service was superb and food was fantastic. Manager checked we were happy and ensured everything ran smoothly, along with the waitresses and waiters. Highly recommended.

People who came in after us, were served before us, twice we had to ask for service and it wasn’t busy. I had to ask three people to pay the bill.

Not the typical brunch. Food is fresh and very finely prepared.. Cold starters were a blast, mocktails were excellent, mains were OK, beef tenderloin was too cooked. Only the kids menu was a bit disappointing. The staff was great to accommodate ma sons allergies but otherwise the basic kids menu is a little too basic. Staff was friendly and attentive to our every needs.
