Visited for the first time today. Have visited other buffet venues and I am a bit sceptical about seating (usually cafe feel) and choice / quality of food BUT was very impressed with Buffet Island. Choice of food was excellent and staff made sure it was kept fresh and topped up. Seating was set spacious and it was the service... More

Always enjoy the food here. Staff are attentive. It's always clean and the toilets are immaculate. Sometimes it's a bit cold in here but that's the only negative I can say. Will definitely be returning soon.

The restaurant was once again very cold and we all sat in our coats. The food was less than average. Chicken satay had no peanut sauce and a member of staff told me they only had... More

This is the 3rd or 4th time I've been here. On this occasion the food was actually ok apart from the fact that most of it was swimming in oil but at least it was hot. The floor however was treacherous. It seemed to be very greasy and was like a skating rink. Surprisingly I only saw one person fall... More

Food over fried/cooked and mainly dry. Ultimatley I found it inedible. Very popular though so a lot of people must like it. Similar places are far far better and manage decent food for similar prices.
