Disappointed with overall experience. Taken to our table and told a waiter would come and see us about drinks. No one turned up for the whole night. Used plates and cutlery were left on the table to build up. The queue to get food was ridiculous. Wouldn’t come again.

Usually mesh is one of the best places to eat. Yesterday i went and it was very disappointing. They only had one row off seafood and the seafood was not topped up by the waiters. When i walked in to get my food there was nothing left. I had to get someone to top up the buffet. I complained to two waitresses in what is going on. Their reply was not enough people had booked to eat. The food was of poor quality. I have been their many times and its been excellent but last night was very poor.

I would not come back unfortunately. The service was terrible. We were not been offered tap water for the table... the plates took a very long time to be cleared out and the seafood bowl(shells) was emptied and we were given the same dirty bowl. We should have been given a clean bowel. There was no much variety at all. Only good part of my experience was the dessert table.

The buffet was of a very good standard and good value money.
The staff were quick to clear the table of dishes but extremely slow in providing drinks for the table. Both times our table gave the waitress our order for drinks, it took thirty minutes for them to arrive.

It is not so much special but rather an honest opinion having frequented MESH for over 10 years or more.
1. The prawns are no longer big; rather small.
2. This night oysters were available but does not taste fresh which it usually does; taste like its been left out for too long as its watery and "sloushly".
3. The "cooks" who slice roast beef should go and get some training as to how to slice a roast; send them to Kitchen workshop to see how a beef should be roasted and then sliced.

Food reasonable
Staff appeared never to have received any basic hospitality training
Helpful to lay cutlery out holding the part I eat off
Dirty dishes piled up on our table and in the end placed them on other empty tables that remained piled with dirty plates

Although the food was adequate we felt that it was not worth the $75-00 per person that we paid. We have been to functions there on 3 other occasions & there was a lot more variety of foods & deserts than what we experienced on the night.

Buffet was good value. Had standard foods as expect and they were tasty.
I enjoyed the seafood on offer although the smoked/bbq chicken was not nice at all.
All other food was great. Maybe live music was a tad loud for dinner.
We had an elderly couple with us for dinner with us and were seated a little too far from food which made it a little difficult for them.
Otherwise I recommend it.

We were very disappointed with the food, service and noise.
The restaurant was approx 1/2 full but for some reason we were seated next to the singing duo so could not hear each other talk.
In 2 hours only twice did we get asked if we would like drinks, and we had to clear our own table.
We enjoyed the prawns and oysters but that was it. All meat types beet turkey, chicken and ribs were dry and unbeatable, there was only 3 vegetables and the salads were stale.

Only allowed 1 hour for buffet meal. We had booking at 1.30pm. We sat on the table and making ourselves comfortable and ready for meal and had a look through on the food menu. We started taking food on plate around 1.50pm and by 2.30 they started taking food away. So technically you didnt even had 45mins to have your food. The table is far away from serving area. So its a total waste of money.

Mesh is one of my favourite restaurants to attend with my family. I have found the service of waiters friendly, efficient and professional at all times. Sometimes the variety of food can be disappointing.

One thing I would like to make a suggestion is not to allow children under 14 to attend dessert bar without parent supervision as I witnessed a child lick a custard spoon and put it back into the custard.

Valuable Buffet with wide spread of foods. However, it feels like there are additional table added into the restaurant. It's too hectic and crowded.

No water at the table, had to ask after sitting down to eat, we ordered drinks that took some time getting to us.
A larger selection of mains would be great.
Staff were great.

It almost spoilt our first impression of staying at the hotel. Some of the food was nearly cold, the whole restaurant was so busy and loud it was unpleasant and felt rushed. We did not feel relaxed or wanted to return another time.
There did not appear to be a great deal of variety of food to select. Our meal was at 7pm and the state of the deserts looked like it was left overs at 10pm!

I always recommended Mesh to my friends, after last night visit, i have changed my mind. Compare to before, food is not much to choose. There were alot of waiters and waitresses but only 2 were removing dishes from the tables. Took almost 30 minutes before a waitress removed all dishes from my table.

We have been to Mesh several times before, cleanliness has deteriorated. Table was sticky, floor was sticky and felt generally dirty. Live Music maybe be good for a disco, but not for dining. Too Loud! Previously we were seated closer to the buffet table next to other tables of 2 and 4. There were only 4 of us and we were situated in the area with other long tables with 10 to 12 diners. We were squashed in a corner next to where the wait staff were bringing drinks from the bar. Loud and cold.

We had to ask the waitress for drinks then they took 45mins to arrive at our table. On 3 occasions during our meal we were then bought other tabkes drinks. Their drink system simply doesnt work! Waitress takes drink order but then drinks come from the bar, and when we asked where our drinks were we were told "bar is busy" the venue wasnt full so it would be a nightmare if full. Food delicious, staff not so friendly.

The buffet price and drinks package were a good deal. There was a decent range of choice of the food, the drinks package was only wine (red, white, sparkling-house). The prawns and crab were excellent, as was the eggplant dip, lamb biryani and prawn dumplings. The desserts went on forever! The live singer was so delightful! She had a great voice and once they turned down the volume, made lovely background music.
We were disappointed there wasn’t any sushi nor beer option and meat was fatty
