Being an all you can eat buffet, there are so many potential pitfalls for service and quality that this place manages to avoid (mostly). The only spot they fall down is that damn line when it’s busy. If they could find a way to control that, I’d up this to 5 stars in a heartbeat. Off to go there tonight with a wonderful friend treating me and the line is the only thing I’m not looking forward to. My advice…take two bowls. lol One for your meat, and the other for your veggies. But then again, I’m a fairly substantial eater, so this works for me.

The staff were great – very helpful and friendly. The buffet food was all fresh and of good quality.
One of the cleanest, most well run places I have been to in a while and I have to say being an Aucklander I was sceptical that I would find it in Whangarei.
Well done Gengys (and Whangarei). If I am back in town then this will definitely be on my list of places to return to.

The food was delicious, which certainly would have ensured another visit, but what I found really wonderful was the ability to share the experience with my young children, who thoroughly enjoyed creating their own bowels and watching them cook. Finishing the meal off with pancakes and ice cream was also fantastic, and again they loved the opportunity to be involved. I thought it was a fantastic little touch that theirs were shaped into little Micky ears. I realize few may understand this point, but I consider it fantastic that the cooks handed my children’s meals to them rather than me, and I know my children liked the recognition as well.
The staff were polite and friendly, asking us how we were enjoying our meals and if there was anything else they could get us when they came to clear away plates. The young lady clearing our table even made a point of asking my children if they were enjoying their meals.
Often I find that even in restaurants that claim to be child or family friendly that children are essentially ignored, especially if you have young children, which tends to make me feel uncomfortable and unwelcome.
I think this is an excellent dining experience for those with children, and would highly recommend it to people even with young children.
