We always stop here for a meal when we are in New Plymouth. It’s such good value and The food is delicious that I keep wanting to go back for more. At $24.90 per person for all you can eat it’s well worth coming here.

We got Sunworld at least once per month and the food is always the best. From Chinese to seafood and desserts, there is something for all. The place is nice and clean, a nice place to relax and eat

The price is good, there is a range of food not huge but perfectly adequite. It is buffet style. I think it is value for money.

Very roughly I think it's $22 for an adult for smorgasbord and under 16 year olds pay their age
