The food is delicious and it's catered to your taste buds since you chose everything to cook. The only problem is it may take 3 or 4 bowls to finally perfect your perfect dish and by that time you're already full.

I was a bit worried about going somewhere to select my raw ingredients and have someone cook it. I needn't have worried. It was fun. Lots of different things to choose from, I didn't even realize I had missed some of the things. You can go up as many times as you want. We went for a birthday, the birthday... More

This was a great place to take a birthday party booking as the food is plentiful and you can keep going until you are full

Excellent for large groups and picky eaters. Everyone can eat what they want and the premises are clean and the wait staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. Not a gold place for a date.

Fresh food at your own choice. Bit of factory style dining and not too cozy. Great for cheerful kids parties and always enough of everything to choose from. Come hungry !Wide variety of meats, fish, salads, even ice creams and sweets. But not for the romantic couple or a quiet chat. Not that very cheap.

Absolutely awesome place to go for dinner. Great location, easy to find. You actually get to watch your food get cooked. They are very busy thou so go early for dinner! Great prices too! Happily go the when just out for a normal dinner without the celebrations!

Great food and a lot of choice but the table service is appalling. Want another drink? Be prepared to wait at least half am hour, and then you have to flag down a staff member or they ignore you.

No matter what your tastes or preferences Gengy's has it all. Dine for $1 on your birthday (other conditions apply). All our family birthdays are spent here. Staff turn on a speacial treat just for you on your BD. You just have to taste the dessert pancakes made in front of you. Delicious with hokey Pokey icecream and caramel sauce.... More

A very expensive buffet restaurant. It closes too early 8pm. The place is a real dive to eat at. Too many kids running around.
