Good location, great setup, quiet a bit of options, you'll get service when the stuff is not busy, but when they are you can't get your drinks for a while. The food for what's there is great, great choice and part of it is cooked fresh on the spot. huge dessert buffet.

Overall, service was great, delicious and wide variety of food, great value and perfect ambience!

We had been to this place prior to the renovation and we were pleasantly surprised in how this place has been renovated. The service is as still the same - excellent service. But the whole food experience was just wonderful!

Thanks Langham Sydney!

An excellent experience with high quality food. We had 30% off the food bill which made the buffet more reasonable in price. $8 for one Soda water was ridiculous when other places do not charge for it!

We came on time and the receptionist let us wait and never came back to us, there’s one guy who just came to us to assist and politely tour us around, coz we’ve been standing there for quite sometime, while there’s group of people the receptionist assist first and let them in even if we came in first. The wait staff are very helpful and accomodating, just had a bad experience with the receptionist!

We were informed there was a “special” nye price only on arrival of $200/head. A call to inform us prior if this change would have sufficed. Poor service. Very disappointed. Was not worth the $400 bill.

The seafood especially the lobsters were sensational. The sushi and sashimi as well as the hot food were awesome. The letdown were the fruits. The pineapple was quite sour and the rockmelon and honeydew melon seemed to have been standing out for a long time that they started to smell a bit.
Service staff were very friendly but didn’t have the initiative to refill our glasses of water. We had to ask them for a refill every time.

We were a multi generational table of 8 for Sunday lunch.The buffet was great with lots of choice for everyone.Particularly good sushi!My husband got his money’s worth with the seafood but I thought that $48 for a seven year old was a bit too much.Drinks service was a bit slow too,but in fairness the place was pretty busy.

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.

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.

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.
