I used to give this place 5 stars and even recommended it as one of my favorite buffet restaurants. During the past few months, however, it seems the place has lost its fine touch. Waitpersons do not seem to be well trained and do not know many important things that they are supposed to know, especially in a fine setting... More

My fiancé and I had lunch here on two occasions and the buffet dinner once. Enjoyed all our meals on every occasion. You need to make a booking for the buffet dinner especially on weekends.

This is one of the best International buffets we have ever had at any hotel, world wide. The range of food on offer from all over the world is simply amazing. There are a range of international dished, pre-cooked with no waiting necessary. But it is the huge number of live cooking stations that amazed us, Thai, Indian, European, Seafood,... More

The buffet breakfast selection is large but the food is very average and the waitress and waiters attitude generally needs to be improved.

The buffet dinner at Next2 Cafe is nice for the variety. Thai stand very very dissapointing. We actually preferred the Indian corner...and coming from Paris, we didn't really feel like trying much of the French which looked uninspiring. We liked the salad bar and appetizers best.

Breakfasts at this restaurant can be rather intimidating because of the huge choices one is faced with. I was really impressed with the efficiency of the staff and the chefs, especially at the eggs station, where waiting time was cut to a minimum due to 2 chefs taking eggs orders and preparing them in double quick time. From fruits to... More

The food was wonderful and a great variety. Fish, meat, and chicken were great. Great view of the Chao Praya.

It's all buffet food but good quality and various. Many stations available. It is located at the basement of the ShangryLa hotel, tables are on the river promenade. Very good, a bit pricey.

Have to say this place is five star and pure class.. Service was excellent and lovely setting on the river... Fantastic selection of food, caters for all tastes, and being a Vegetarian, I was amazed at the excellent choice of Salads and then the Indian cuisine... Very very authentic.. Well worth the money... A must for sure...
