If I could give more stars I would. I cant recommended Farmside Buffet enough for the awesome surprise birthday we had at the venue on Sunday. the venue was clean and modern, beautifully spaced out for big groups, the food was first class even with the amount of people that were present on the day. The options were varied for different tastes as were topped up before being empty. The staff were amazing going about their jobs with a friendly smile for everyone. Sue who I booked through was so helpful and the manager on the day couldn’t have been more helpful. I would highly recommend Farmside Buffet to any one large or small groups our whanau thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. the best thing was locals have been employed well done to everyone!!!!!
