The breakfast buffet is the best, fresh fod at every station, with great presentation. Staff excels in service and if you are a repeat guest they know exactly what you want every time. The food taste as good as it looks, never a disappointing meal. I like the soup they make for you, you can pick ingredients and flavor sand... More

This buffet was good at best. It is extremely overpriced and not worth the money considering the other options. I suggest leaving the hotel to find a more desirable and cheaper restaurant. Hotel is amazing though, seriously top notch!

We stayed at Shangri La's breakfast restaurant for one week in family and we had great moments: everything you can imagine for breakfast is here and so for quality and taste. A lot of cooking stations to prepare all you like. But most amazing is the service provided here: all the staff is very professional and friendly. They always looking... More

Oh my. Viking Cruises put us in the Shangri La, and this is one of their restaurants. It borders the river -- and the peace, tranquility, joy of being riverside, watching the boats and barges go by, the birds alighting for treats, cannot be overstated. And they have a remarkably wonderful buffet. One thing we kept coming back for was... More

If they don't serve what you are looking for then I don't know where else to do. This restaurant is on the first floor of the Shangri-La hotel and has an amazing buffet. Worth it when you can't make up your mind what you want - they seem to have it all.

Fantastic staff, nice mix of western and Thai food all at a very reasonable price. A perfect place (for a newbie to Thai food) to try something different and be suprised. Buffet and menu based options. Beautiful decor and location right on the river, you really could just sit there all evening!

We have our buffet dinner in here. The price is standard. There is a Thai live station, Indian station, Chinese, grill station include beef steak, foie gras, big shrimp, salmon, chicken and so on. Seafood on on ice is not much choices but is all fresh. Japanese station with sushi, sashimi and maki rolls. Salad bar and a cheese board,... More

Breakfast had a huge variety of quality western and Asian dishes. I was surprised that the coffee was so good. We had dinner there one night which was a bit mediocre but the setting was beautiful.
