Shared a dinner with family here and thought the selection was not too bad. Good variety to keep everybody happy - even had a vegan with us.

It is so unfortunate that this place has dropped in standards by level of service, food, hygiene and that the price reflects that of a buffet place in Auckland Central. I would never recommend anyone to come here, it is a pity Valentines overall have...More
