Hi I enjoyed my meal and staff service. It was excellent set up and everything was well presented. The only negative was we had a time limit of an hour and a half to eat our meal and enjoy the short time we were there.

The buffet consisted of a beautiful variety of food fit for a King. There were three courses, soup; mains and dessert, concluding with coffee; tea etc. I dined on a first table deal, so was extremely happy with the price. The Grand Cafe is always a wonderful dining experience. It it spacious with great ambience. Definitely worth a visit if you enjoy the finer things in life.

We have eaten at the Casino many times and are always delighted with the experience. It nice to be able to take the different generations of the family and find it is welcoming for them all. The staff are courteous and thorough without being overbearing. The food is always delicious and with the return of the buffet it means that everyone can find something that they enjoy. Highly recommend.

Buffets are a rare thing today and I doubt The Grand Cafe would be beaten. The extensive food choices were very good with the prawns the most popular choice. The roast lamb was a bit chewy, but it would be picky to criticise other dishes.
I had noticed the extras in Surf & Turf which Abhi came to our table and explained well. The Blue Cod was well presented and delicious.

I brought my 3 visitors from overseas and had a great time. The general set up of buffet was awesome with enough space to go around and not too crowded compared to other buffet that I've been. There are many food choices and they're yummy. Perfect place to enjoy chatting and eat continuously haha. Although there was a tiny glitch on the billing but was immediately addressed by the Manager.

Firstly I was disappointed that it wasnt a buffet the advert led us to believe it was but apparently that is only dinner and breakfast not lunch --so that needs to be made clearer --- the service for drinks was so slow --- we had 1 tea 1 mock cocktail and a beer and it took about half an hour to get -- the food was tasty and the service was pretty good for food ..... but the drinks need some serious attention as it certainly wasn't busy .

Came for lunch. Good value for 2 and 3 course options. Salmon main was delicious - cooked very well. Cheesecake for dessert was a bit too sweet, but the sorbet that came with it was very refreshing.

This was a great experience from the moment we entered we were looked after. The food was really good the only thing that could improve is that the plates were cold and the deserts could have more choice. The buffet had plenty of choice and quality meats.

Do you want eggs, do you want cake, do you want pancakes, do you want coffee, juice... choices are endless! Quieter today with the marathon going on, pleasantly nice,
Staff were attentive and super friendly, always helpful and nothing issue.

Had copious amounts of coffee, love the noodle dish they have, and the great array of fresh fruits!!! Set out a little different, and a bit of clutter from nights buffet loaded round, but to be expected.

Always clean and tidy, and no wait and great ambience. Parking wasn’t a hassle, as car park down stairs $2 for duration and could get though, another great experience, and appreciate the staff this time round for going extra mile,

Thank you Casino :)
