Personally wrapped by me :)
August seems to be a busy month of birthdays. First it was my aunt's, then it was Mr. C's and now, Jo's.
We celebrated his birthday last week at Paesano International Buffet that is situated on Ferntree Gully Road in Wheelers Hill. Before being Paesano, the property was another eatery called Montalcino and before that, Sofia's. Guess the business wasn't too well or perhaps, the location isn't ideal.

Whatever it may be, the buffet spread in Paesano may not be as classy or of quality as Burwood Highway's China Bar Signature Asian Buffet but it definitely beats Wantirna South's Food Star anytime! In terms of pricing, it's also between the two.
The place is spacious. There's enough room for you to host a birthday or any other celebrations here in a big group. If not, a table for two is just as good. Ambiance is average with nothing outrageous or spectacular to boast about.
Despite that, it is comfortable, clean and cosy.
Mr. C loved the oysters and just had plate after plates filled with them. Seriously. That's basically his entrée, mains and dessert for the night. I reckon it's more worth it for him to go for buffet as he enjoys the more pricier food such as the seafood, the sashimis (if there's any) and steers clear of carbos/fill-you-up-fast-but-are-cheap food.
Me? I eat those instead of the expensive food, unfortunately. Blame it on my poor man (in this case, woman) stomach with no taste for rich man's food. LOL.
Would we come back here? Yeah sure. If we feel like stuffing ourselves with buffet food and Melbourne city is just too far. :) After all, it's our second time here.
