Otherwise is way way over-priced. The only reason we go in is because its the best of the buffet restaurants in Auckland. As usual, the Indian stuff lacked pizzaz and heat. The samosas were better. The salad range was very good as usual. The cooks at the seafood bar were not that hot. The food was not cooked well, and... More

Eight has quite an extensive breakfast buffet, so don't venture in if your not super hungry. Breakfast buffet is just on $40 per head.

Definitely did not eat $120 worth of food. The food was nice and good quality but I didn't think it was exceptional. The buffet area is crowded and difficult to navigate. They ran out of plates. Would not return or recommend

We are currently staying at this hotel and we have eaten here twice in a row for dinner. Last night we dined à la carte and tonight we braved the buffet. Both meals were exceptional. The fresh ingredients were prepared and presented to perfection. The service was faultless despite the Christmas crowds. Very festive and lively. Christmas crackers and all!

Had a business breakfast here today. The range was excellent, the service as far offering coffee etc etc was also excellent and offered more than the standard dark brown sludge that normally is offered.

The food was exceptional; the meat choices were extensive and prepared right in front of you as you ordered. Salad was also prepared to order from quite an array of vegetable choices and desserts were wonderful, we sampled several as they were 'tasting' size. The only reason I didn't rate as 'excellent' is because I just generally feel that there... More

We were a big party of 27 there to celebrate a new Junior Doctor graduation and everyone had what they... More

While the buffet is pricy it is a wide selection of foods and those are well prepared. It seemed like many locals went to Eight for special ocassions and there seemed to... More
