Went with the company for a Christmas luncheon and was sorely disappointed in the food and service - was looking forward to eating there - but it was not a good experience

Best vibe and good food. They made my surprise birthday party a memorable one. The food was enough to feed an army, buffet style. You can't go wrong, the staff were commendable. Awesome, it was special.

I had two bad experiences. I must admit the particular branch has closed down so not entirely fair to Adego's who can provide a seriously good Nasional sauce. The experiences were related to a friends Anniversary (My treat) and a business dinner and in both cases service was a problem and knowing prawns, they had been re-frozen both times and stick to the shells. The manager had the audacity to blame patrons not eating enough and having to re-freeze.

I probably eat here at least every month / alternate month. This is my second visit this month where I was disappointed. Went for dinner with some business colleagues. Didn't make any reservations but I got there early so getting a table wasn't difficult. The prawns and chicken were average. Both fish dishes, kingklip and the panga had almost the same taste. Very disappointing! There hasn't been a decent change in the presentation of the food and the fish dishes are becoming boring. The addition of the 10% tip I think is a rip off. Don't get me wrong, if the service is good, 10% is a pleasure but the service / meal is not up to standard anymore. I think a revamp is due... on the meals, service and the decor. Very sad, I used to love this place...it's just lost its touch and feel. Really Sad!

Was known for its excellent seafood, but now, the quality of food has really deteriorated, the signage is broken and it just looks run down. They do a seafood buffet, but I know of two people who got ill just after eating there. Won't be going back.
