Description: With creativity and imagination we have transformed the dining experience. Chefs in show kitchens present a multi-cultural cooking theatre. At any time of the day select from cuisine ranging giant baskets of fruits bring bursts of colour; the wine bar itself is a vivid backlit pink. The space is transitionary, designed for changing moods from muted to energetic up to the fresh and airy garden views. You could dine here every night of the week and the only similarity in experience would be the excellent quality of the food.

Many guests, families, couples, etc. it is a rather busy place and therefore, would not recommend for a romantic dinner. Go there, when you are very hungry. Great buffet, appetisers, sushi, Indian food, seafood, thai food, great dessert, etc. good... More

Had breakfast and lunch at this 'buffet-style' restaurant several times during my week-long stay at the Mandarin Oriental. I found the choices of food cuisines offered simply astounding with consistent high quality. Service was excellent too, courteous and prompt, happy to accommodate people's individual preferences. With such a large restaurant catering for so many, how do they do it? Highly... More

Great cheeseburger first night at hotel, just arrived. Fine service, free Coke (Often a $5 item in these hotel restaurants), good service. They were running an "Indian Food" promo, so gave me free Indian dessert. Delicious.
