The buffet food was cold and tasteless. Staff were chatting out the back, rather than checking on everything. Poor value for money.

We ate here for 2 breakfasts and dinners. The morning breakfast buffet is typical of all motels we stayed in Australia on this trip. Dinners menu offered selections vice buffet. Barramundi was our choices for several meals; all wild caught. As with other restaurants we experienced in Australia, drinks are ordered and paid for at the bar.

Seperate buffet for large groups. It reduces the waiting time for orders from the menu to the barest minimum. Simple but honest food. Nice to get a cold beer after the Yellow River Cruise.

Our bus group of 28 was able to enjoy a cold Lunch Buffet in 45 minutes at Mimi's. The cold cuts and sandwich fixings and salads were very good. Cold water on a hot day or other beverages were available. Disappointed that the fresh fruit was not replenished for the last in line.

We ate as part of a tour group. Our meal was presented buffet style. The food was fresh and abundant. Drinks were extra but that was of no consequence. The restaurant was clean as was the restrooms so all was good.

More like expensive fast food. It was ok but the place lacks atmosphere and the food is overpriced. Unfortunately when you have no choice then you have to accept what's on offer.

Value for money, especially in Kakadu park where everything tends to be expensive. I highly recommend the smoked crocodile salad (17.5$). Last time I tried crocodile meat I didn't like it, but this smoked version tasted nicely. The salad is of decent size, comes with a nice dressing and cool orange slices which gives a cooling effect, enjoyable in this... More

Sometimes it pays not to have too high an expectation when eating out, having had a dreadful meal when we ate here four years ago we didn't think that they could possibly repeat the disaster so to be on the safe side we ordered a pizza. Well they exceeded all our expectations and excelled. To be fair the pizza did... More

Dinner was included in the half-board deal we got when booking Cooinda Lodge. The food was great and artfully served, although we had to wait quite a while (while the place was hardly crowded during that Christmas eve). Loved the barramundi and tried the different NT's typical meats. Deserts were so delicious and they came with a bottle of wine... More
