Food is average except seafoods and sushi. However, the service here is excellent, the staff serving us is super hospital and the ambience is superb. We head for lunch, and there are limited choices for food in lunch. In particular, there are only three kinds of fruits are provided. A bit disappointed about also about the desserts.

Few hot food choices except pastry, not worth this price. Also the fruit was sour that night, told the service staff that they would take a look

Ms Maia Stephann is very helpful and attentive. The white wine she recommended to us is great. I learnt she is studying hospitality and taking the practical in Kitchen on Kents. I am sure she will going to be a valuable asset in the hotel / hospitality industry wherever she works with. Please send our regards to her.

Unfortunately, we can only stay for two hours for dinner. As we surperingly met two friends in Sydney and we met for dinner. Although Maia has helped us to extended the time for 15 minutes more. We cannot adequate time to try everything. But the Peking duck wrap, cheese roti are good. Not to mention about the Sydney Rock oyster and desserts.

We hope sometimes when we travel to Sydney from UK or Hong Kong again, we shall return to Kitchens on Kent again.

Great food, good quality, talented chefs, but they need to expand their salads and vegetarian selection. Plus there was no one to greet us on arrival. The hotel concierge had to step in for the restaurant staff.

Have been at this buffet so many times, this last dine has been one of the worst night, pork was dry nothing like what used to be, no wagyu beef but before booking i rang the restaurant and getting told kitchen will definitely have. Less deserts and others compare to the weekday night and Sunday night is one of the most expensive night. Anyway hopefully you guys can improve sometime in future.

Cheers,
Ken

Quite peasant.
Generic big hotel any city.
Typical big hotel.
Nobody reallt cares.
Staff get paid no matter what sergvice levels r axhieved.
Constantly see staff talkinf to each other while we stack plates up and we have to go ask for wine to be poueed.
We feel ignored and unimporyant.
At $110 each we would like an atrentive wairer.
Not good enough.
I will never go again.

Very busy restaurant during promotion, we arrive 10min before our appointment and need to wait a bit. Seafood was fresh and most of the staff are friendly and helpful. However, our booking was at 8:30pm and our cutlery just been took away at 9:50 without asking (while we still have dessert left in our plate). Then we have to ask for another folks she just told us “ we are closing in 10min???” Not sounds like a 5 star service. All the rest is good except this

I booked a table on behalf of my friends to enjoy the lunch special offer $45. However, my friend was totally upset by one of waitresses that she insisted to charge full price. She eventually rang me and I managed to recall name of the lady who received my call. The restaurant should honor the price listed in Open Table rather than trying to rip their customers off.

Seafood was extremely fresh. Loved the ribs (especially beef), so tender and delicious. Sashimi bar was fantasticly fresh. Overall a lovely night. No Soft drinks, coffee or tea included in the buffet though. Great selection of dessert treats. Especially enjoyed the mango sorbet. Will definitely go back again.

Loved kitchens on kent all the staff from the buffet areas to the waitress were all very friendly and helpful and eager to assist you with all the food on offer. I really like the idea of having my own stir fry made up with the ingredients that I would like. I really loved the ambience & I had such a positive experience. The food was excellent and really worth the value. I have already started recommending the restaurant.

Cooked food below par. It appears that the cook is not well trained. Except the Japanese. Dessert is 2/5.

Kitchens on Kent is absolutely fantastic. This was my second visit and I took a girlfriend there for her birthday. She loved it was was touched by the birthday card signed by all members of staff and a dessert plate of chocolates saying "Happy Birthday". My only complaint is that they didn't have duck pancakes, which I had been looking forward to for weeks. The chefs at the various cooking stations are very helpful and the wait staff are truly excellent. Nothing is too much trouble. It was a most enjoyable lunch and I will certainly be returning and recommending it to my friends.

My partner and I came for our 10 year anniversary. They were very attentive with our special occasion, and always happy to assist where needed. The selection of food was great - It was hard to get me out of the seafood section, but when I did I was even more amazed!! Overall a great night, can't wait to come back for our next occasion, and bring family too.

Went there for a seafood dinner buffet. Lobster was good, hot food selections could be more better. Plenty of dessert choices as well which is outstanding. Service was a little bit sad. Waitress did not seem happy when serving our table.

We went to eat at your buffet for my brothers birthday, the taste and type of food was great. The waitress was very nice but i had a problem with the man that was severing the meat, he gave me the sucking pigs tail, wth the tail isnt edible. One more thing, there was a table that was next to us, there was a whole table of kids which they were very noisy. Overall everything else was great, 4 out of 5. I hope that next time when i go these 2 problems will be fixed.

Overall the food was good, Indian section was okay had batter naan bread, but this was better than the pizzas served. The pizza base was disappointing. The carvery section was the best roast beef cookd to perfection med-rare, suckling pig was yum. Overall was good.
