Very disappointed this morning. Coffee machine wasn't work properly and the alternative pots were almost empty. Food ok, but not up to usual standard.

Big apologies Louise. The reason we have 2 machines is so we are covered if one goes down but having 2 down is so unusual. Gutted you felt the food was not as good as normal. The buffet we put out is almost identical every week. Have asked our team to keep an eye on the quality we are putting infront of our guests. Thanks and again accept my apologies

Been here a few times since opening it's buffet format. Found the food on this occasion a bit bad, namely because it is now a Christmas menu so variety is pretty limited and what was there was not to our taste. Also it is a shame that the first table version doesn't give the option of obtaining card points as you are still paying for food.

Reviewed On
Restaurant Response

Thanks for the feedback Janelle. It is the season I am afraid and we have so many Xmas groups coming through that we try and accommodate them as much as we can. Sorry we didn't hit the mark for you this time. The 50% off Food via first table is such a good deal and I am glad you took advantage of this great saving. If you swiped your members card you would have received the members benefit no matter what as this is automatic

My friend & I went to another brunch buffet at the Casino today. The selection today was the best yet & we walked away full and happy. The casino buffets are the best in Christchurch and Ive been to a few. You always get consistanty in the quality of food, which is not the case for many buffet establishments.
