Meals and service was very good. Phone booking and paying deposit was not so good. Clearing dishes from the table was done so inconspicuously that we didn't even notice it going. Lance, our waiter was very friendly and helpful, even taking an excellent photo of our large group. Our family enjoyed the meal very much.
We had a lovely time. The food & atmosphere was great. Thank you so much. We will be back 😊
The price for the buffet- the quality of all courses was excellent and the choice of food, plus the desserts - excellent.
The staff were very friendly and the food was fantastic
Very friendly staff, beautiful food and selection and loved the setting. I will remind people how lovely it is. :-)
Overall the food was very nice, especially the chicken dishes and the desserts. However, some of the seafood was disappointing. This included the freshly cooked fish which was very chewy and Terakahi would have been a better choice. Also the prawns had no flavour. Considering that the price was $35 per head, the prawns and cooked fish should have been of a higher standard.
The food was flavourless and bland. We had to beckon over waitresses to remove used plates.
Restaurant lost track of booking when we got there, but found us a table all the same. Seafood was very good as usual, but atmosphere not quite what it's been in the past
I will be writing on my other account as well. Have already promoted you on my facebook account. I appreciated the service we got and the friendly staff.
Last time we're there was 3 1/2 years ago. The food was good, this time around the food were 120% Excellent especially Pork Ribs, Sushi, Chicken with sauce, Potatoe/Kumara and Dessert.with new flavour Rasberry/Strawberry Sobret ice cream...yumyum, $36.00 for lunch sooooo worth it..(PS cold salad not bad)
It took longer than it should have to get the attention of staff to take a drinks order, and then too long for the drinks to arrive (we'd finished 2 courses and were looking at dessert) - but otherwise, it was great. The food was terrific, with a great selection, and we all left happy.
We had a lovely meal, great friendly staff and nice food
Good service and reasonable price
Lovely evening, such a nice place for a family meal, very welcoming staff, really enjoyed ourselves.
