    i was there on the 10 th October this year...i couldn't believe my eyes, unfortunately it was my last day in Durban but ,i already booked for Christmas day Buffet dinner,all the way from Limpopo...i have never seen such buffet.
    On the 17th of December we visited the lingela restaurant for our anniversary and I must say wow everything was absolutely brilliant. Every meal and dessert that we had tasted had so much of flavour, it was absolutely delicious. The restuarant had friendly staff and assisted us, they were so welcoming. I definitely recommend family and friends to try the buffet. 10/10 from my side.
    Best buffet in Durban . Love the variety of food. The price point is totally worth it. The customer service has room for improvement. The ambience is amazing. Lovely for special occasions and events but be sure to book early. My fave dish/meal has to be their grilled prawns❤
    One of the best buffets I have ever experienced in Durban is at the Lingela. With a wide range to choose from one would not know where to start off first and with myself being a sweet tooth I would first run off to the mouth watering selection of desserts with a chocolate fountain that keeps me drooling. To keep with the tradition it starters first with a fresh & healthy selection. Then to the mains, with so many delicious selections to cater for every taste and something that is so unique you get a chef at the buffet station preparing a dish such as prawns or steak according to your taste. Save the best for last the dessert selections ends of on a high note enjoying every sweet selection and flowing chocolate fountain. The breathtaking views from the Lingela restaurant at Elangeni has beautiful waters of the ocean of Durban beach front, people walking and cycling along the promenade. Seated and dined in comfort, served to perfection with the most friendly staff, this is the best buffet restaurant in Durban that I will highly recommend.
    One word of warning before you set foot at Lingela...arrive hungry and be prepared to be blown away with THE BEST buffet spread in KZN. Prawns on skewers, fresh fish, braaied meats, decadent curries and lots and lots more. The thing is that the food is delicious & will keep you going back for more. Let’s not get started with the desserts, that is another story itself. Prepare to be mesmerized as Lingela lives up to the hype!
