We have a grabone voucher for a early dinner. The range of food really impress us. The sashimi are fresh; salad bar are huge; lot of hot dishes. The dessert was good, too. We're very happy until we gone home...both my husband and me are super thirsty. I guess they put lot of MSG in the food (1 points off).... More

We stopped in for dinner as we were doing business nearby, and we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. In reality, it should have been good as the cost of the meals was relatively high. The setting was very pleasant and comfortable, and the service was excellent, and very quick. Thoroughly enjoyed.

It was my first time dining at this restaurant. We were here for a family dinner during a busy month but was still provided with excellent service. The set up and atmosphere was amazing, we all had a great time. The food was delicious. My family will definitely be visiting this place again.

I was wanting to look for a venue to hold my Wedding buffet lunch at to celebrate the union of my husband and I, but after attempting to get in touch with multiple venues / hotels / restaurants none could accomodate to what I was after. I needed to have a halal buffet lunch for a large group of guests... More

Wanted to take the family out to a nice buffet dinner tonight. It took some time scrolling through Google searches to find Acacia. I was slightly hesitant about coming here because the last review was about 6 months ago. I'm glad we did go though because it turned out to be a really neat place! Both of us as well... More

I attended a business dinner here earlier in the week and the meal service was appallingly slow and so disappointing when the food actually arrived it was so salty and many people at our table could not even eat their food due to the saltiness. I understand the actual rooms are very nice so if you are staying here my... More

I dined here with some work colleagues. 1 hour wait for entre's that were cold. Then when our mains came out 45 mins later, still plates to be cleared and no cutlery. Took 45 mins to be asked for drink orders. Food was way to over priced and dicey quality. With wait times like that and a 3/4 full restaurant... More

My wife and I enjoyed a very pleasant Friday evening at Acacia. The staff were hugely attentive and very professional; the food was very good - both the lamb and scotch fillets we ordered were cooked perfectly and the side dishes were very nice.
