Old thread I know.....

But does anyone have any insight to as if they will ever bring back the buffet at Ricks? It was one of the most popular and best value food offerings at the park imo. 

They don’t intend to bring back the Buffet from what I have heard. Last school holidays it operated as restaurant again.

Honestly that really sucks, and that menu sucks because its just the same sort of foods elsewhere in the parks. If its going to be a set menu at least offer something different than Burgers, Hot Dogs and Chips...

Maybe off topic, but does anybody find it really difficult to justify a sit down meal at our parks just mainly because of how short the operating hours are? The buffet was a great choice because you could eat as much as you needed and then go, but if it's restaurant style then I feel I'd be fretting constantly and watching the clock.

So for me I hate buffet’s. There are only bad buffets and mediocre buffets, and they’re just not for me. 
So I’d love for them to open as an A la carte restaurant (FWIW I’ve said for years SW should have a broadwater facing Seafood restaurant also open for non park guests and make a fortune). 
However I agree it should have it’s own unique quality menu, much like they did with Dirty Harry Grill. 
 

And I think the courtyard bar should be open with a more snack style menu.

Ive been to every ‘good’ buffet ever been mentioned around the world to me.  From $20 a head to $150 a head. 
They all suck compared to a real restaurant. 
 

But again, in my opinion only

If you're ever northside of Brisbane, try Jayliano's Strathpine or the sister restaurant Ariala at Kippa-Ring. They might change your mind on buffets. 

Ariala is also at Springwood now, haven't tried it yet but have heard good things.

 

I love buffets - but there certainly are not many good ones around these days. The Star GC one used to be quite good, but i havent tried it out since it re-branded a couple of years ago.

 

I used to regularly eat at Ricks when at MW and also at Billabong at DW - hope they do return one day - and given its popularity with the asian tour operators, i'd like to thing Billabong will with the return to normal of international tourism in the next 12 months

I used to love Bazaar pre-covid times. I went there around 2015 and it was amazing. Went back a few weeks ago and was very disappointed. I tend to like the "experience" buffet style more. I'd highly recommend Brazilian Flame if your on the Gold Coast (it's in surfers) or Navala if your in Brisbane. You may go into a meat coma though, but overall I tend to agree most buffets these days are not that good anymore.  For me it's always Dirty Harry if I'm having a meal at Movie World
