This was a lovely place to enjoy a meal, if you love buffets. The selection was wonderful and there are chefs available to cook you portions of food on request. Perhaps not 5 star, but definitely a great dining experience.

The food was excellent and the desserts were indulgent. I would have expected more indigenous influence in the food. The service could do with improvements. Our table was given little attention. Worth the money though 👍🏽

We ate at the Ilkari twice and have to say that the roast rib of beef was excellent - cooked medium rare and succulent. The oysters as a starter went down with a glass of wine wine perfectly too.
