My favorite restaurant in Wanganui is "The Oaks" (restaurant cafe and bar) for the following reasons:
1. I love seafood. They offer an all-you-can eat seafood buffet every Saturday night, 6pm. You have to make reservations though. This is their website. From memory, they serve the following on their buffet menu:
a. Soup (for starters) - pumpkin or vegetable soup - nice and creamy
b. Bread and assorted ham
c. Egg and vegetable salads
e. Fried rice with lots of shrimp and crab meat
g. Squid salad
h. Steamed vegetables - potato, broccoli, cauliflower
i. Roasted pork
j. Fish Fillets
2. They have wonderful deserts -pavlova, lots of fruits and strawberries, chocolate cake, eclairs
3. The Oaks is a casual dining place.
4. The pricing is so reasonable at $30 per person.
