I've been coming to this eatery for many years, not out of personal choice but mainly due to birthdays and other kinds of invitations. It's recent renovation has does nothing to improve its appeal either culinary wise or ambience. I've been most nights of the week to sample all of its offerings, ( schnitzel night, seafood night, breakfast buffet and... More

At friends request I accompanied him for Monday breakfast. Joined as a senior. Great Buffett breakfast with lots of choices and as much as you like. Staff very friendly and good discounts for seniors on Mondays.

The Sunset restruant is lovely. We go here for a relaxed family meal where the kids can wander around without too much hassle. Friday night dinner Buffet is a favourite as they serve seafood. The Buffet Breakfast on the weekends is Amazing, the selection is great and the coffee is very good.

We decided to pop in for lunch on the weekend. Haven't been here for at least 6 months. We were seriously disappointed with the food selection and bland flavours back then. This visit was no different. Can't say we didn't try, but frankly there are far better places within Skycity to eat. Serious let down is the only way to... More

I have provided a review under the heading of The Vue, which is the new title for Sunset Restaurant. This is now the only option for breakfast at SKYCITY and just as before, the food runs out, the food is often cold, plates are not cleared away promptly and there is a general lack of supervision to ensure that the...

This is a tourist trap. It has gone down hill over the years. Food is expensive, of poor quality and full of msg. It's really sad as it used to be great! I've seen better sunsets in Hawaii and egypt.

Looked at reviews here as friends had made a booking & was a bit worried, but found the food to be pretty good. A good variety and tasty - everyone in our group was happy. The seafood wasn't amazing, probably the least good, so if you like your seafood, there are much better places. Roasts, curries, salads, desserts all good.

Then we visited again a few months later, last Saturday. What a dissapointment! We went there at 8pm the Restaurant was moderatly full. There were... More
