Went for lunch with a friend and our food from the cabinet was below average. Felt that there was little interest from the staff. Atmosphere lacking and everything just missed the mark unfortunately. Not particularly cheap either - sorry but would not return when there...More

I went to the movies with my friends. Some of us were hungry so we dined in this cafe. It was quiet busy but cos it's buffet we served ourselves fast. Food was all good for that price. Pretty happy with the friendly service.
