Very disappointing. Limited selection of buffet items definitely does not match the description used. Food was overcooked and tasteless. Definitely did not leave us wanting more.

I celebrated my dads birthday when it was Rainbow Terrace and everything was outstanding. My recent visit to Vasco felt like a step down. The food selection was vastly reduced. There were more veg curries. The roast lamb was average but no other option like roast chicken or beef. Suncoast casino and Subways offer a much better selection. The service however was very good with an attentive waitress Nonhlanhla. I appreciate the private space provided for our dinner party.

You buffet has limited options in terms of the main course.We were not informed that yall will be having an indian theme and then you did not cater for those that dont eat spices .we then stated that we are not happy but we still paid the full price for everyone that was present even though we hardly ate due to the fact that your food didnt accomodate us in all angles. The restaurant only had rice and potatoes as a starch serving and all the curries were hot and spicy. There was also one type of roast meat which was lamb that means it doesnt accomdate those who dont eat red meat. I dont recall seeing any salads present but one vegetable that was brocolli and green beans .Your dessert has no ice cream .Your starters were very dry and not tasty either. I was very disapointed and unhappy about the traumatic experience that we has to pay a huge lumpsum for.Please review your menu

I booked the curry buffet for my birthday.I wish I had asked beforehand what exactly that would have included.The choices included Trotters and Goat,there were two chicken dishes.not everyones palate is the same and goat and trotters are not to everyones liking.we had to ask three times for wine glasses from two different people and waited a while for this.disappointed on the whole with the curry selection...no butter chicken,fish or lamb options,maybe should be included in future.

Absouletly disappointed with the food at the Hilton. I mean tripe and trotters and goat curries Was it an offals buffet or Indian buffet and not even normal chicken curry either........... You cannot pay to eat food like this at the Hilton. Desserts were stale like the cupcakes and the soji cake. Hard and inedible. I have been to Hilton a few times before and never experienced this kind of food..............It was really really disappointing and I wont be back......

My family and I have eaten at the Rainbow Terrace on numerous occasions. We have never been disappointed with the food. Our first encounter with the newly revamped restaurant was not as great. The food was terrible. Extremely bland. No flavour or salt. Desserts were very ordinary and quite mediocre. Tasteless as well. Drinks ordered were served in the incorrect glasses.

It was really stressful to deal with Hilton , the phones just ring, the responce on email is slow , My booking was handed to someone else as the lady i dealt with went on leave. I was told the day before that Hilton dont accept remittance advice although i sent a remittance advice, on my quote / invoice only had 1 drink on it when I asked for 2 per person, I did say we don't have a company credit and will have to make payment before the function. i doubt I will have a function at the Hilton again. The venue and the waiters were awesome , however the payments team need to communicate up front.

Reservation was not known at entree. Request for table was ignored. Food was undercooked and below standards. Entertainment for the evening was ok-ish. Wine on the menu was not available. Biggest frustration is that I have been charged twice for the evening, still waiting for an explanation and resolution.

Good day Thank you for giving me the opportunity to give feedback. we did not find that enough dessert was catered for, most of my guests did not get some of the desserts and when asked for more they said the chef is not making anymore we should have whats left!!! the fruit salad was mainly apples aswell.. there was also not much seafood selection.. i did mention when i called in that it was my sons and my birthday, but they only sang and brought in a slice of cake for me and not my son.. the seating arrangement was not good, we had to ask the waitress to rearrange the tables so that guests can move in and out of their seats to get their food.. Parking was awful, we were told that outsiders are using the parking for an event across the road and we had to use alternate parking on the road side or at the ICC and walk with our disabled child from that place, after phoning reception we managed to get into the palking. we would have to think twice about revisiting Vascos restaurant. No value for money here.

The service on the night by your staff was exceptional. I would like to bring to your attention, the lady we communicated with on the admin side, Mildred. She is extremely incompetent. We had 2 people that were haalal and she failed to make sure they were catered for even though we enquired about it weeks in advance. Both these people had to eat salad for the night and you manager Tony refunded 1 of them. Mildred's communication skills are terrible. She did not advise us that we were getting crackers and hats on the night. I asked to be seated close to the dancefloor, no response. I asked for her to confirm that she had received our deposit, no response. I asked her to confirm the final amount that would be owing on the night, no response. For an establishment like yours, I expected immaculate service from top to bottom.
