Really terrible in the holiday inn - very overpriced for what looks like a microwaved ready meal

We had food in the hotels and it was better than I thought (posh buffet) but in the park it was not good, best bet is the pizza one as at least its all you can eat!

Buffet is ok-ish at Azteca.

Generic pasta/burger/rice dish/chips. Very same-y but edible. The manager is fabulous, and will happily help out where possible (eg there isn't generally fruit available at the lunch buffet, but he brought us a bowl of fruit when we asked, and then each time we went he did the same).

There are 2 hotels, with different restaurants (linked, can eat in either). The temple restaurant (in Azteca) is far better with children, imo, although Zafari wasn't bad, just more expensive and less choice.

You could always pop out of Chessimgton of you want something different. There's a Beefeater just down the road, or Epsom is not too far away, with more restaurant choices.
