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.

The queue to get food was too big and slow, more than 15 min to get your food, the quality is average and i would not recommend it.

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

I went to Mesh for the first time on 3/11/2019 to celebrate one of my best friend birthday. I was getting myself food from the buffet and sat down with my meal. As I was eating, I noticed that there was a dead bug in my meal. I immediately approached one of Mesh’s staff. The manager that night apologise and took one buffet price off our bill. I was disgusted with what I saw and I didn’t want to keep eating. I’m really disappointed with the experience I had.

The food was amazing. So much variety...the salads were delicious! Prawns fresh however disappointed there were no oysters. I have been to Mesh several times on a Saturday night and there’s always been oysters. Dessert bar had a huge variety of mouth watering cakes...it’s hard to stop at one.

Amazing! From the moment we walked in the service from staff was excellent. So many food options we didn't even get to try half of what was on offer. The dessert bar had to be the best I've been to by far. Premium Ice Cream Bar, Strawberries and chocolate. I wish we could eat here everynight! 11 out of 10 from us.

The food was excellent with such a vast selection to choose from. Each dish was prepared with the finest choice of meats and sea foods and so fresh were the vegetable and fruits on offer. The service was very good with friendly staff.

We have been coming to Mesh several times, and we are always seated at the very far end of the buffet table. Understandable if we walked in but we made a booking for my wife’s birthday and got the worst table ever. The last table near the bar.

Being from out of town, we had no idea about the restaurants in and around the Crown Casino. We booked Mesh because the website seemed to match with what we were after for a meal. We were pleasantly surprise. The buffet was excellent and there was plenty of variety to suit most tastes. The wine list was very good and the wines we selected were very enjoyable. We had an early dinner booking, so Mesh was reasonably quiet for the period of our meal. Table service was sometimes a bit slow.

My husband and I celebrated our birthday at Mesh on Saturday 19th Oct with our 3 boys. The staff has kindly managed to seat us at table 200 which is close to the buffet as per our request. My son is allergic to nuts so the chef made him spaghetti bolognese and provided his own bowl of choc syrup for dessert.
Zoe and Dylan, the staff there, were very attentive, friendly and accommodating. We are frequent visitors at Mesh and always enjoy our experience there and the food gets better everytime.

Had a wonderful night for my wife’s 50th birthday. Our waitress was exceptional and food was very nice. For the price I probably expended a larger variety but that’s just being a little picky. Had a great night. Thanks to the wonderful staff at MESH !

My son has allergies and they cater to his requirements. The chef/kitchen staff are really friendly they made him special food. This makes our dining experience stress free. There was a live band playing, they were really good. My 16 month old son was a huge fan, he was watching them and listening to the music while eating the whole time so my husband and I are able to enjoy our meal. We were celebrating my husbands birthday.

Excellent quality food and amazing choice . Sunday afternoon was not too busy which made it more enjoyable think it would be very noisy if crowded and lots of children
Staff cleared tables quickly but were not given any water for the table small point
