Great deal of food to choose from, cook your own meat while chatting to others. Pricing is reasobable whether you are couple or in a crowd they aim to please.

Horrible over cooked fish.
They either don't know or don't care to cook reasonable battered fish.
Even fish and chip shops can get that right!

Superb family restaurant and very large venue and terrific prices for large families. The staff are very friendly and informative with how this system works. I love cooking my own meat its very interactive with your fellow guests at table and restaurant, plenty of salad choices and far more hyienge with allocated bowls than the previous free for all. Light and spacious restaurant... would make fantastic wedding venue too. Try it ... has lots of choices to suit. Cheaper drinks and sundae's etc for kids.

My husband and I normally do not like restaurants where you cook your own meat but this restaurant was great. Nice selection of salads, a baked potato, sauces etc...
Really enjoyed the meal

Took a huge group here recently and it wasn't good.I have been here many times and have enjoyed it most times but not tonight.We went up to get some meat and they only had some selection of some meats lefted.We asked if they had more and they replyed that they had.I didn't like how they were forcing us to buy the "lefted over dry stuff" before displaying what else they had on the menu (very deceaving).The salads were very bland and tasteless and actually regretted getting them.The lamb steak was ok, but not as good as a mates which was fresher and bloodier, which they bought out once the last one (my one) was bought.Very, very hit and miss weather you will get a good bit of meat or not.The staff could be a bit more friendlier as well, it doesn't hurt to smile.
