One of Buffet King's Favourite Reviews What's This?
Not normally down south, my work took me that way with time to kill for lunch… which worked out really well. It cost me “$15.95″ to eat plenty of different yummy food on offer.
My fave dishes included the ‘chef’s pasta of the day’ which was beautiful creamy chicken penne. Also the seafood chowder was full of flavour (dig deep to find the little guys hiding down the bottom of the fluid creamy salty goodness). Plus everything else I had was very enjoyable – the mussel was sweet and tender, plus I enjoyed the deep fried fish, butter chicken (‘medium’ heat which was good – ie not too mild), beef stew, and freshly steamed veges were spot on – nothing overcooked – broccoli still full of vitality with its natural bright green shade.
Also loved that the dessert table included tiny taste bites of different cakey options – like cheesecake which was my fave. Plus ‘scoop your own’ rolled icecream was good.
For such incredible value (I should travel south more often), the venue is targeting the more budget end of the eating-out spectrum, and Buffet king does it very well. The dishes are in the style of something you might prepare for yourself at home… but it’s the vastness of options to choose from, and the sheer quantity that really make this excellent value.
If I had to critique anything, it would be that the red decorative mats on the tables need a spruce up (just a little too many food splatters dried on from previous diners.)
I thought the bathrooms were suitably kept, complete with paper-towels for hygienic hand-drying… nice.
The maitre d’ was 90% fabulous, asking me which dish I enjoyed most, and making general friendly banter when I paid at the end. (I think I caught her flustered when I first arrived – as at the start she forgot to smile when she greeted me – but then thoroughly made up for it with bMoreig smiles and warmth later). Also, maybe they need a louder counter bell to get staff-attention when everyone’s out the back?
Overall, for a limitless meal of such variety, you really can’t go past this place for the price they charge. Thumbs up.
A lovely lady served us when we first walked in. She was asked if we were ok every few minutes even though there were other customers, she made everyone feel equally important.
The food was topped up and checked every few minutes. Our dirty dishes were taken within a few minutes of us eating which meant we didn’t have to sit on our table with our dirty dishes everywhere.
I really feel that this restaurant deserves a second chance as it has improved from the other reviews was stated. Great job!! these guys are onto it, I feel that they have taken each review and criticisms and used it as a learning curve.
Thanks for the great experience and you’ll be seeing more of me from now on.
the deserts were not fresh, the cakes need to be displayed in a way were it does not tast like its been thier all week, the cakes were hard, except the carrot cake, this was nice to eat, but the rest of the cakes really tasted old,
the ice cream display was not good, most of the trays were at the end, and customers had to ask for refills. Overall thiers always room to improve, I hope this is not seen as a negative but a positive way to get better.
No atmosphere, no music, disgusting toilet facilities. Above all extremely rude cashier. I’d rather have pizzas. What a rip off! very disappointed. waiters have no training, staff bring bottles of beer not on a tray but hold the bottleneck and walk with 4 in each hand! where is the hygiene? jugs of water have no ice, i am extremely pissed that I spent money here. I’d rather donate it to charity.
The staff are so friendly and really liven the place up.You get to choose where you sit which is always a plus.
The food was very good. I particularly recommend the carved meat and the delicious seafood.
Perfect place for families, big groups, or just a quiet dinner.
Definitely will return again.
But a few small things spoiled my experience at the restaurant.
Mainly, being there was too many uncontrolled children spoiling the food, if you don’t mind the children eating ice-cream straight from the freezer with the communal spoon, you will fit right in. Food and desert should not be so easily assessable to unsupervised children
It was my money worth, awesome atmosphere, great food service was excellent, it was even good was for the Manger to come out and ask if we were OK, so i would recommend this place to anyone. Looking forward to dinning out again with Buffet King, thank you all the staff for an excellent service we thoroughly enjoy our night.
The price on top of that is so cheap,and it’s better than some of those restaurants that cost more.Absolutely love it.Highly reccommend it…..
We dined in for dinner good choice of food and dessert.
Kids loved the food catered for everyone and no time on dining.
Very happy with time we had there will go again.
