You have a huge specter of Asian and continental choices. And again, the service was good. The only minus was that they were very slow when getting the coffee for breakfast.

I find that the mobile app of Trip Advisor isn't that user friendly. I drafted a long review and before I sent it out, I picked up a phone call and my draft disappeared after my call. So now I am here to write again, but a simple version Good variety of food for buffet, even foie gras congee is... More

Came here with friends on a Saturday night for the dinner buffet. Looked very promising - oysters, king crab legs, lobster, wagyu beef and most importantly lots of desserts! The oysters were average, not super fresh but not inedible. The lobster and king crab legs were boiled and cold, personally not my favourite way to eat them but each to... More

Two choices on soup - Ginger flavored pumpkin soup with orange juice and Chinese reddish soup Candied ginger taste with very slight trigeminal effect. Pumpkin still dominate the... More

If they offer a buffet, especially on the week end you should join it. a great variety a sea food and international specialities. The taste is very good, the buffet is always clean and is nicely decorated. The service is very friendly and helpful. For the restaurant I will come back.

Overall an excellent value for choice sunday brunch, with a very appealing and diverse array of seafood, European and Chinese specialities, including a lovely cheese selection. Only disappointment were the desserts which did not match quality-wise with the rest of the offering.

As a local in Hong Kong, I actually do not like Kitchen at all. I have been to Kitchen many times in the past two years, and none of the experience was great. First, the service was poor (generally i think the W hotel in Hong Kong is pretty poorly run including the Bliss Spa). Second, the food is bad.... More

Truly something for everyone, from the gourmet connoisseur to your basic "snacker", an amazing display, variety and presentation.

This restaurant has the challenge of facing off against some of the best restaurants in the world and comes out with the short stick in my opinion. Breakfast buffet was expensive and not very special. Other meals were standard and lacked imagination. I ate most of my meals nearby as I found the local spots much more authentic.
