If you value quantity over quality then this place may appeal to you. For everyone else, save your money and go elsewhere. Some dishes were OK, but there were many that were below average.

After visiting this Club many times on the way through to either Brisbane or Melbourne, on the last visit found the the quality of the food had not been as good as previous, Have decided not to visit again.

Was expecting a better meal. Was over charged at reception area of bistro, then when said something the operator denied this, lucky that I had copy of receipt issued, still no apology after explained. Amount of seating limited due to number in bistro. Arrived at 6:30pm time and food variety was good with visual signs identifing each meal, had to... More

Fresh and cooked seafood variety of salads and fresh fruits. Great mixture of roast meat and veggies to Chinese dishes. Great variety of food for kids big and little. Nuggets melt in your... More

The total cost for 2 adults and a 10, 8 & 2 year old was $76. I wish that I had spent that money somewhere else! The buffet is not great. The only greens I could get had to be pulled out of a Chinese dish. The roast section was dry & the gravy was weird in colour and texture.... More

Lots of choice and produce is always fresh, the staff are friendly and if your hungry you can have seconds. I like the idea of being able to put what I consider a nice sized meal on my plate and then I can leave room for some dessert. Tea and Coffee are also available.

Although this is a little expensive, you have to keep in mind its all you can eat. How much can you eat? not a lot really. When you first walk in, things are a little confusing, its hard to communicate with some of the staff, there seems to be a bit of a language barrier at times. But when you... More
