If you don't believe a buffet can have high quality you have to try the Market. You don't have choice...... you have a super wide choice of whatever you'r taste are. Fush, meat, sweet .... Nice location, good service, price high but adeguate to the quality.

Okay - I'm not suggesting this is the best buffet ever. As a matter of fact, I'm not a fan of any kind of buffet. It's uncivilized. It's only a step removed from being handed a spear and dropped off in a jungle to fend for yourself. But this buffet at The Market is the best I've ever experienced in... More

Book in advance! Go with a couple friends! Have a great time eating a 2.5 hour buffet lunch. We booked three months in advance, and heavily anticipated this meal.

One thing to note, call ahead and see what the hours are and what is on the menu for the day. We arrived late in the afternoon and they were not serving anything. Plan on spending about $50USD/person. After looking at what was on the buffet, we decided the price was a bit steep.

The buffet breakfast had plenty of choice and the quality was excellent. It was very busy, which did not help the service. We waited a long time for beverages and sometimes plates were not cleared. However, the choice was amazing; both Asian and European choices in abundance. We ate the buffet one evening too. Although rather pricey, at around £65... More

it's my second time enjoying dinner buffet, undoubtedly it's super tasty. No oyster provided, but lobster, crab and prawn are delectable. From salad, soup, sushi, cold cut station to dessert station, it's all perfect without any defect.

We had lunch at the Market and were pleasantly surprised by the variety. Wide choice of Asian cuisine and everything else in-between. My husband had a field day with the crab claws and other shellfish on offer. He gets this glow when he's totally overwhelmed by fishy-ness, and this was most definitely the case.
