Gengy's is a little bit different to most eateries – you get to choose your dishes and they are cooked in front of you! This is a great place for large family groups; our group ranged from age 6 to age 60 and everyone had heaps of fun. You pay a set price and can revisit the grill as many times as you like. The choice of food is wide, there are starters, mains with meat, seafood, veggies, noodles and rice, desserts with pancakes, fruit and icecream. The best fun is choosing from all the sauces, oils and condiments to make your own unique dish. And if you get it wrong, you can always try again! One of our group is vegetarian and she also enjoyed the visit, but if you are a strict vegetarian or a vegan this might not be the best place for you as everything is cooked on the same huge grill. The grill is cleaned after each dish is cooked and the cooks have a clever system to make sure nothing gets mixed up. All the meat is checked to ensure it is cooked properly. Sometimes there were 20+ people lined up at the grill, but I didn't have to wait more than 5 minutes - much quicker service than many restaurants I've been to. Great for kids and adults alike and best value in town.

Back again for a family birthday dinner! The kids love choosing what they want to eat and so do we. Will be back again in a few months for the next birthday.

All you can eat of some of the best fare to be found anywhere. If you dine here and are not happy with the food or the service, then you are indeed a hard bugger to please! A wide selection of meats to have cooked for you and the creation of the dish is only limited by your imagination! Great food, great service from nice people.

This is one of the better Gengy's I have been too. Their meats, salads, and sauces are always topped up and fresh, the food is cooked in an orderly way, and it is a great opportunity to try a lot of small portions of different flavours and styles.

Their birthday song and dance gets a little annoying after the third time on any given night though! But I guess it is part of the entertainment.

Friendly staff and well-priced for an all you can eat restaurant.
