This family restaurant is one of the cheaper 'all you can eat buffets' I have been to, but that does not compromise on the quality of their food in any way. All of the food is fresh, and in my opinion, it is impressively tasty.

It is not a classy style restaurant by any means, instead it is set as a cosy cafe style dining restaurant, which feels comfortable and inviting for children.

I came here just as the sun had set, however if you come here for lunch, take a window seat and appreciate the wonderful views of 'Civic Park', which surrounds the restaurant.

There is a fairly wide selection of hot food to choose from, especially if you like Asian cuisine. From fried rice and noodles, to a wide range of stir-frys.

However, the hot food also includes different types of roasts and vegetable dishes, fish, soups, garlic bread, nuggets, chicken, pies, squid, spring rolls, satays, dim sims and the list goes on.

Down at the cold food selections, you will find a range of salads and seafood.

Then come the desserts. Wow, you really are spoilt for choice here. The desserts are plentiful, ranging from pastries and biscuits, to a wide range of cakes and puddings, ice cream, jelly, fruit, and my favourite 'apple crumble' (with ice cream), which I have to say is the best crumble I have eaten. I must admit, I was never a huge fan until I tried this one and it never fails me.

Tea and coffee is also supplied as self serve, so you can drink as much as you like for no extra cost. However you do have to head to the bar and order your cold drinks as they are not included in the All You Can Eat buffet price.

Coming here for dinner Monday to Thursday will set you back $22.50 for each adult and kids under 3 years are free. Kids over 3 are $12.50. Fridays and weekends attract a slightly higher fee while lunch time is slightly less.

I have been here for lunch and dinner a fair few times and enjoy coming back every time. It is a clean family friendly restaurant where children are very welcome, they even supply high chairs if needed.

One thing I have to say though is after your children have finished eating, there is nothing for them to do, so quite often you may find them running around the tables, unless they are like mine and keep going back for more ice-cream and jelly!.

I find that it is a delight to eat here with your whole family. It may not be the fanciest restaurant around, but the food is good, the atmosphere is relaxed and you walk out feeling perhaps a little bloated but happy and satisfied.

Hi there I've heard mixed reviews about this place. And I just wanted to ask a real foodie reviewer about a few things. You said you've been there lunch and dinner, I've heard there isn't much food available at certain times. What times and days do you suggest where there's a good volume of food? Thanks
