Disappointing when you think you will have a good dining experience and it turns out otherwise. The hot buffet wasn't the best but it was edible. Let's just say we have eaten better. The venue is open and on a cold night there is not...More

We love the music while having dinner. Like the lamb on the spit, curry and roast. Then they have a lot of variety of salads, pastas, and desert. We also enjoy the stir fry.

We had a booking which they could not find. The place was crowded and very noisy and the price was very expensive. We ended up leaving without eating.

We decided to try the buffet dinner at the Calabash. The buffet spread was great and it caters for stir fries, curries, grills, seafood, salads, cheeses, bread and loads of desserts. We enjoyed the food experience.... The restaurant is located outside, so while its lovely...More

I generally don't do buffet restaurants but they seemed reasonably priced so we decided to try them. Food was good. Fresh clean and tasty and did not feel mass produced as is with many buffet places. Overall a pleasant dining experience.
