The cold weekend weather was a deciding factor to the team deciding to book for lunch at the Five Star Beverley Hills buffet lunch.
Having booked the table we arrived and were warmly welcomed to our table and seated. As the wind whipped up the azure blue sea outside our drinks order was taken. The buffet table laden with starters and dessert certainly stirred the senses from a visual delight perspective.
Our taste buds were soon not disappointed as we chose our various starters and sat down to enjoy the vast array of flavours and textures from our starters. All tastes are catered for from the soup of the day, through a myriad of salads, fresh salmon, and so many options to choose from. It’s all about pacing yourself ensuring that you allow room for the mains and desserts to come. The temptation to go back for more starters was resisted and then the next choice was what to decide to eat for the delectable mains.
From roast beef, lamb and chicken, to the traditional Durban lamb curry or butter chicken curry with all the accompanying condiments certainly caused much debate. Should one keep to one main dish or try a bit of everything? Questions abounded should it be the Naan bread with the curries, Yorkshire pudding with the roasts, decisions, decisions!
The musical accompaniment provided during lunch by the piano playing husband and wife team offer a calm and relaxed ambivalence to the overall enjoyment of the meal.
The magnificent view from the Sugar Club over the external verandah with the Indian Ocean in the background offers you an opportunity to unwind and forget your concerns of daily life.
Service from the large number of staff is excellent from the manager, waitrons, and chef all checking and ensuring that you are well taken care of.
Having ensured that we still had space for the tantalizing desserts, we succumbed to select from Malva pudding with custard, to the many and varied offerings. The lunch caters for all ages, and personal tastes and if one is celebrating a special occasion we would certainly recommend it no matter your age, you will be made to feel special for the day. We would most certainly be back. Our overall rating 10/10.
