If your family has fasted before an unlimited buffet, this one is for you. SkyFeast at Sydney Tower is switching back to an all-you-can-eat buffet, some 82 floors up in the air.
Following a $12-million refurbishment of the Sydney Tower Dining precinct last year, SkyFeast Head Chef Stefan Schröder is in charge of the kitchen, bringing with him two decades of experience across five-star hotels, luxury cruises and restaurants throughout Europe and Australia. Guests can help themselves to more than 30 dishes across 11 sections as the restaurant completes a full rotation every 1½ hours. Buffet enthusiasts know that the key is to pace oneself.
Perhaps start with the cold seafood selection, at no extra cost. Sydney Rock oysters are there for the slurping, alongside tiger prawns, poached blue swimmer crab, cold-smoked ocean trout and more. Antipasto is up next, whether dips or sliced cold cuts, while on weekends you might prefer to skip straight to sushi.
Hot dishes at SkyFeast are a culinary trip around the world, from Marrakesh-style lamb korma with raisins, to stir-fried Hokkien noodles, to grilled ‘roo marinated in native thyme. That’s before you get to the carvery, where whole roast beef is ladled with cognac and pepper sauce and honey-glazed turkey is served with sides such as truffled cauliflower bake.
Anyone who grew up celebrating the buffet knows that dessert is a second-stomach scenario. Think salted caramel and chocolate tarts with hazelnut praline and dark chocolate rocky road brownies, through to Persian love cake and khanom chan, Thailand’s steamed coconut and pandan slice.
Kids are also well catered for with tempura fish bites and tartar sauce, spring rolls, chicken nuggets and steak-cut chips. Those between three and 12 years old eat free Monday to Thursday for lunch and dinner, as well as on their birthday. Adults are not forgotten and will be receiving their first drink on the house.
Long live the buffet!

Following a $12 million refurbishment, the Sydney Tower Dining venues took on a new life in 2020. Sydney Tower Buffet became SkyFeast, a casual buffet restaurant, while 360 Bar and Dining is now a premium restaurant called Infinity. A new bar on level 3, Bar 83, also opened for the first time in September 2020.
