We have been here few times, and this place keeps on amazing us.Its a perfect family place where the kids can play at the garden with bouncing castle. The food is always good and excellent service. Very friendly and well trained staff. The price levels are pretty good for the quality you get.

Beautiful setting, love all the water features. The food was really good. Service was okay, unfortunately one of the waitresses couldnt speak proper english which could not give us proper dessert options. And the desserts on display wasnt appetizing... it is clearly old and not fresh - although in display only. And if you order something please make sure your... More

We have been multiple times to the Fanr and visited today, again. The sizes of the carrot cake was only 50% of what we were used to. They were so small that we asked for the supervisor. He explained that this is the standard size. We explained that we had much larger pieces before, but this is the standard now.... More

24 minutes I sat unnoticed and unserved today. They redeemed themselves with an awesome Penne Arabiata and detox juice in just seconds after they finally took my order. As a bonus they gave me a lovely pot of black tea on the house.

My wife and I visited this restaurant on a recent Friday night. We arrived after 8 pm so decided on the à la carte menu, not the buffet, which runs from 6pm to 9pm. The food was exceptionally good. Lamb shanks has always been a favourite of mine and this was the best I have ever tasted, delicious flavour of... More

I coordinated with the manager Shain to hold a large (~30 person) group event here. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Shain, he was flexible and professional. The night of the event was excellent, everyone received great service, great food, and great drink. A good time was had by all. Highly highly recommend.

Been to the Fanr Friday night BBQ a few times. Amazing value for money and unlimited alcoholic beverages. What's not to love!!?? Great ambiance, friendly service and a good spread. Chefs grilling in front of you, great selection of salads, main course and dessert too.

We visited this restaurant last Friday and we were glad there was a place for the children to play in (Bouncy Castle). It gave me and my wife an option for having a quiet dinner while the children enjoyed playing. Food options were limited, was expecting a more variety of meat on the BBQ. However the food was great and... More
