Had a family birthday dinner here, food was absolutely awful, there was 10 of us and we all thought the same. The food was very budget! Desert was terrible. We would not recommend Sunworld to anyone.

Sorry your stay was not satisfying enough. We have now gotten a lot more new desserts and changed a few hot foods. Hope you would come back to try our new desserts and food and give us more feedback.
