I was last here 8 years ago and felt it was not quite as good but still worth a visit. Got the usual rip off handbags but this is harder than it used to be. Not as much variety. Stall owners are not so partial to bargaining, some even rude when you try and bargain.

Recently, I have been staying at the W Hong Kong which has one of the best dining experiences in the city, but as I wanted to stay in the bustling... More

First time writing review of restaurants in my hometown. The Market in Hotel Icon is often considered by the local as offering the best buffet. Booking is difficult and reservation for dinner buffet must be made months ahead. I don't know whether they have any tables set aside for hotel guests. Had a lunch buffet here in May, and a... More

Make sure you are hungry and take your time. I would start with the fresh fruit, yogurt cheese and baked goods. Great croissants! Then more fresh fruit and on to the hot bar, you can go Japanese or have eggs cooked to order. The poached eggs with onions, tomatoes and mushrooms were excellent, as all the hot bar items if...

Foie gras had such off flavor two of us could not swallow the first bite, we have never experienced this. Where did... More

We go there for breakfast which is at reasonable price. The food is good in terms of quality and quantity. Unfortunately , it is so crowded that we are assigned a table that take us more than 50 steps to the Buffett table. Avoid the regular coffee!
