Food very ordinary this year. Did not enjoy at all. Prawns so much smaller. Very disappointed. Hubby rarely comments but he did not like it at all

We had a lovely family lunch at Mesh and the buffet style meal allowed everyone, including the children, to choose what they liked and however much they wanted. The sweets, particularly the ice cream, was a big hit with the children.

Found a bug in the prawn dumplings. Poor variety. Service very average. Had to flag someone down to order drinks. Bottles of water not topped up. Servers clearing plates without asking if your finished.

Poor selection of food. Desserts were average. They look great but lack flavour. Ice cream station was empty.

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.
