I have been here several times over recent months and always have a delicious meal for a good price. Staff are helpful and quick to clear away empty plates. The atmosphere is friendly: just right for casual dining.

Went there once, wouldn't go again. Pretty sure they only survive due to the aged care facility next door. Place needs a good freshen up. Food is what you'd expect from a buffet. Maybe good to go to if you are hungover or absolutely starving. Staff are friendly enough and don't hassle you every two seconds which i liked. Easy... More

One of my favorite restaurants for a great feed at a reasonable price. I'm a regular there at weekday lunches, mainly because of the magnificent roast beef. It's so tender that it virtually melts in your mouth. There's also an enormous range of other choices in an "all you can eat" buffet style, including plenty of dessert choices on offer.... More

Having driven past this restaurant on a number of occasions, we decided to give it a go. I read through some of the reviews on tripadvisor and the ratings were reasonably good. We attended on a Sunday night at around 6.00pm. The first impression was that the garden around the restaurant was very unkempt. Not a surprise given the cheap... More

Obviously priced for the volume market the place was abuzz with groups and families and children obviously welcome. The staff were very polite, kept to themselves, not at all intrusive and kept the table clear of used plates and so forth., Food was quite fresh and wholesome, and a great variety to suit any palate, Very good for the price...

Good variety of food and very clean. Food is replenished regularly but feel the bain maries need looking at as food became cold quite quickly. The restaurant decor is looking a bid sad and the carpet is in terrible condition. Dishes were cleared quickly and efficiently. The restaurant was only half full but perhaps put that down to it being... More
