What Customers Are Saying

First time dining out since lock down

Not a buffet now but food is selected from the menu and served in tray boxes. Food hot delicious and staff are lovely. Must admit my husband and I prefer this idea more relaxing and much safer due to pandemic. Well done loved it. Restaurant spotless

We love this place!!!

We have been going here since it opened and it's only gotten better and better. Many of the now managers have been there years and have always run a tight ship. The food is always hot and fresh and constant attention is paid to spills and quickly seen to by the clean up team. Always great choice and my daughter loves that she can try different things. We rarely visit INTU without a trip to Buffet King! :)

So impressed with the approach taken to provide safe dining during COVID restrictions. We have really missed our buffet visits & it was so great to be able to enjoy coming here again. Hats off to the staff for their creative approach - we’ll definitely be back.
