Enjoyable meal with so many choices. All very tasty and it's hard not to try a bit of everything. Very friendly staff that make it their mission to clear the table quickly so no dirty plates sitting around. An enjoyable 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.

Excellent value buffet lunch via First table. Delectable selection of food..my quality picks were the tender Beef curry, Mushroom risotto and Potato gnocchi with Sundried toms and pesto..great combination of flavours in all of these. Most beautiful to the eye and palate was the multiple layered Berry Mousse cake...one of the most delicious desserts I have eaten..ever! Service was impeccable.
Thank-you to everyone.

Beautiful venue and excellent service- the waiters were quick to clear the tables and were incredibly polite and welcoming. The food was great, a bang for your buck. Great variety of foods for all people and felt a lot classier than your average buffet.

Was a very inviting atmosphere on arrival we were greeted with warmth and when asked if we could sit at a different table to where we were taken it wasn’t a problem.
The food was of good variety and we were very happy.
We were able to eat our way through our own menu of entree mains and dessert and the desserts were beautifully presented in the cabinet.
We loved the coffee machine and were happy we could finish our meal off with a cappuccino. All part of the price. We walked away so full lol we could hardly walk so much food; the only thing was we felt given only an hour and a half we felt we rushed through our eating not by staff but by the fact we had been told on our reservation that it’s an hour and a half we probably would have liked to have been able to pace ourselves and wait between main pudding etc but due to time restraint we had to pretty much eat it all without spaces
We will definitely be returning.

Food was superb & staff very friendly (lunchtime dining). Wasn't a busy sitting so had the restaurant to ourselves. The food layout was a little confusing. I missed a dessert because it was over by the coffee, separate from the rest. And I missed the chicken as it was on its own away from other main dishes. I would dine there again.

Staff were friendly and pleasant. There was a decent selection of food to choose from and was more than worth the value. First Table is fantastic, allows us to try out different restaurants at a great price and then helps us decide which are best to return to and make as our favourite places to haunt.
