We all love a traditional sit-down lunch, but in this busy day and age we don’t always have the luxury of time to prepare one. The Chateau Tongariro Hotel has the perfect solution with an indulgent all-you-can-eat spread of mouth-watering entrees, mains and desserts.

Enjoy a slice of tradition at the Sunday Buffet. Bring the family for dishes like succulent roast chicken, rosemary ribeye, and classic Yorkshire puddings with kiwi and international sides.

And always leave room for the crowning touch of old-fashioned desserts just like Grandma used to make; red velvet cake, homemade apple pie and much more.

Available every Sunday from 12 PM – 2 PM.

Entrance Fees: NZD 55 (adults) | NZD 25 (Children 5-12 years) Toddlers below 5 years eat for free with one paying adult.

For the months of July and August, we are transforming our Sunday Buffet into a Mid-Winter Christmas feast. Please book your table here.
