Went here for husbands birthday as it sounded like a great buffet online. BARELY any food options available and the dessert table had the same thing repetitive on both side and NO chocolate options at ALL expect for a topping for soft serve. Would not...recommend if you want seafood and are craving delicious food. It’s just simple oven food and a ham and roast nothing special. Soft drinks jugs/cups were free for you to fill when you want some.More

Great selection of different foods from roast, asian, soups, chips, popcorn chicken. Dessert bar was extensive. Loved the fact that you helped yourself to your own soft drinks which was included in the price per head

Great value for money, with a good selection of dishes that would suit most people. The desert bar is great and the fact that soft drink is included, makes this an ideal place for affordable, casual family dining.

This buffet isn't too bad. I was sceptical but there is a good selection of food for every taste. For the price, you can eat a fair bit of food. It is a cheap, fast meal.

The venue is impressive when you first arrive; you queue to pay at the counter then you’re shown to a table by the cashier and they explain how it works. There is a soft drinks section in addition to the food and you can serve...yourself drinks by the pitcher, which saves repeat trips. The food selection is limited for such a large operation however the dishes we tried we pretty decent, bog-standard buffet fare. The Asian dishes in general were superior to the western and the wait staff kept the table clear. The only issue we had was the noise level - there were way too many large groups all making a lot of noise so it was difficult to enjoy a meal for two. The location is convenient and if buffets are not your thing, there are loads of other options in and around the casino.More

Acceptable quality food though nothing special, great if you want a big meal. Presumably better value for lunch if the offering is identical, at $23 vs $30 (Crown member pricing).

We have eaten here a number of times and each and every time, the food is the exact same... roast beef, baked pork, stew, chicken drumsticks.... desserts and soups do differ a bit. Great value for lunch time at around $23 for members. Free soft...drink also helps keep the cost down. Only downside is that kids are no longer able to come here (for some that is a bonus 😊).More

The food is predictable, modest, perfect for people who like a big meal with lots of choice. Not a patch on mesh or the conservatory or the Langham buffet. It was good enough for lunch and was fair value. Enough good food to make a...meal. Nothing classy about this place but it was not too shabby either.More

Stop here regularly for lunch or dinner when visiting crown. It s always a good feed with lots of different food to choose from. On this occasion I just wanted a light lunch and had roast beef with vegetables and pasta. They have a large...verity of Asian food and salads to choose from as well and then lots of sweets and deserts as well. Staff are friendly and keep food stocked and fresh. Will be back again. Hope this helpsMore
