Place was fantastic atmosphere and utterly delicious. Perfect size portions to taste something new or to go nuts and consume your favourite food in utter gluttony. We will be returning
One of the best buffets I've been to in Perth. Great selection of Japanese food, great location with nice views. Overall pleasant dining experience !
Neatly organised . Well mannered staffs . Different kind of menu , really amazing . I would obviously recommend it to my friends and family
Food quality, freshness and variety are excellent. Caters for everyone even kids. We had a group of 12 people and everyone enjoyed the experience very much. Service was good and attentive. Highly recommended. Will be back. The only negative is we could have been given 1 big table for 12 people rather than 2 tables....maybe we had to spevify that when we made the online booking?
It was my family's first time at Laputa and we were impressed. The customer service we received was really good, each of the waitperson we encountered always had a smile on their face and seemed to be serving genuinely from the heart - this dinner experience was made so enjoyable especially because of the service we received that night. The variety of food were not as much as I expected in comparison to Crown Perth's Atrium and Epicurean, but the options available were not disappointing either. I loved that they had a noodle bar where you can customise and 'cook' your own ramen or udon with broth of choice. Other foods worth noting included fresh sashimi, Japanese salads, sushi, chawanmushi, takoyaki and teppanyaki food. The desserts were really nice and I actually preferred Laputa's desserts (if I had to compare with Atrium or Epicurean). The desserts are more Asian inspired and there was nothing too sweet or tart or all cream. It was actually quite refreshing. The ice cream is self-service and I like the idea of allowing diners to help themselves to how much ice cream they wish to have as well as the combination/ratio of flavours they liked. The dim sum selection is unfortunately quite limited and not very impressive but with all the other food available, it was not a major issue for us. They also gave a complimentary dish of teppanyaki style beef - the meat was cooked well and it was a nice bonus. It was also my sister's birthday and they organised a special birthday plate with 3 petite desserts along with a lighted candle and chocolate Happy Birthday written on the plate. Needless to say, my sister was pleasantly surprised. Overall this has been a wonderful dining experience and there is no doubt we have now deemed Laputa as our new favourite.
Overall I really enjoyed my experience at Laputa as did my dining companions. Variety of dishes and styles of cooking, hot and cold options, sweets were great, but presenting deep fried dishes at their optimal best was difficult and a little disappointing, e.g., karaage chicken and tempura were lukewarm due to sitting on serving platters. I realize these dishes are difficult to present in a buffet at their best. We also felt that offering a complimentary hotspot was unnecessary and led to food wastage. Most people wanting that sort of dish would make it the main dish of their meal. Our guests, who were visiting from Japan and celebrating their birthdays, did really appreciate their birthday platters - that was a very nice touch! Thank you!
Lunch at Laputa was excellent. The variety of food was amazing. The dessert, especially, was very well presented. What I particularly liked was that the desserts were set up in individual little pretty plates. Similarly, the sashimi options were individually plated, making them more hygienic and appealing to the eyes. Very enjoyable lunch.
Very amazing service, took my parents and close friend there for Father's Day Lunch. Really good sushi and variety of Japanese food, although I was looking forward to the soba and Udon Laputa used to have, not sure why it wasn't there this time. But the Karaage chicken was awesomeeeee
While the food is tasty and varied it is quite expensive overall, especially if you don't eat like a horse, however if you do eat like a horse then i'm sure you will get your value for money. (Note children probably wont). it is annoying when you have to squeeze past other patrons multiple times to get to you table, or if your one of the unfortunate ones, then you may have a lot of people squeezing past you which may annoy most. A small handout would have been handy detailing proceedings / do's and don'ts etc, but I'm sure most wing it anyway. Ramen noodle stand should be re-arranged to better suit the sequence of putting your meal together. (some people just cant/don't read the instructions behind either which doesn't help). Other than the above the place is tidy and clean and staff are friendly.
It was our first time at laputa, Food quality was really good! Staff and service was great! Highly recommend going to Laputa.. wil be back for sure, I gave a rating of noisy due to school holidays so a lot of families with kids had bookings ;)
