If you want a high class, affordable meal for a birthday or celebration, I recommend going to the Garden Buffet at the Star. It is an open buffet so that all you need to do is grab a plate and stack it full of yummy treats.
If you're going in a big group it's best to RSVP early otherwise there may be issues fitting you all in, as the tables are more suited to many small groups than a couple of large groups.
Also, if you're picky about what you eat, although it's a large buffet, there's still only a limited selection to eat; a couple of entrées, a couple of mains, a couple of desserts, and a soda machine. All the food is nice of course, but if you don't like the desserts they have or if you don't have a soft spot for fizzy drinks you may find yourself stuck for choice at times.
Another little detail you should know is that if you intend on bringing young children or anyone under 18 it can be harder to get in than navigating a maze. All the signs will point you in one direction, but that direction is smack bang through the casino floor, and surprise surprise you can't enter the casino unless you are 18 or older.
[ADVERT]Now unless you've been there before, know your way around or have a very good tour guide then you may end up wandering the halls lost for ages - you may even end up having to go outside and search your way around the building until you can find your way again. I've spent enough time wandering all the way around the building inside and out with no help from staff and directions that led to no-where, and the ever frustrating knowledge that it was a short straight line from one side of the casino to the other but we couldn't go through as we had 17 year olds with us.
Once at the buffet however, after the wait to get in (which cancelled out the time we saved for not having to wait for a waiter to come and serve us) it was pretty good being able to get what food you wanted, how much of it you wanted and when you wanted. The only downside was shuffling seats in order to let everyone in and out constantly to stock up.
All in all if you can navigate your way inside, it's a good buffet with good food and it's a nice place to have dinner with friends, family, loved ones, workmates, anyone.
