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.

We had never been here for a meal and to be honest we were pleasantly surprised on how good the food was and how well it was presented. The service was outstanding and the waitress was very helpful and informative. We will definitely go again and we will definitely recommend to all friends and family. We have already planned our next visit.

On a freezing, rainy night - this was the place to be! Not crowded, plenty of tables to choose from and a fantastic variety of food, there was definitely something for everyone. Being Vegetarian, occassionally I leave a Restaurant hungry - that didn't happen here! Especially appreciated the fresh pasta, cooked to order, that was awesome. Thanks for a lovely evening :)

The food was nice, we had roasted beef on the day, kumara soup and seafood fuyong egg tasted very good. Lunch buffet may not have much variety compare to dinner, we are interested to try the dinner buffet in the future. The service was excellent :)

Really good food and a generous amount of allocated time, so we didn’t feel rushed at all. Service was good and the food was always topped up. The dessert table was the best and had tonne of options, wish there were more options for mains and sides too. But overall a nice experience!

Hi Casino Buffet Team,
The customer service was superb, where a gentleman and lady took our plates very quickly and were polite the whole time we were there. The food variety was a little lackluster as there were not too many options. However, this said, the food that was there was very nice, and we really enjoyed the BBQ pork.
The Desert selection was basic and limited, and could have been dressed up with other options, such as pastries and other baked items.
Overall, we would give this experience an 8/10.

Kindest regards,
Jasmine, Tom, Leroy

Great to see the buffet back. Everything to be expected for a lunchtime all you can eat. Not too much or too little variety. Espresso martini needs a bit more practice (was okay, but not very strong in taste or volumn)

All in all 7 out of 10.
