Description: LATEST RECIPE, features the concept of inspired world gourmet and interactive buffet, offering modern cuisine based on the original elements from around the world. The dishes will include popular and well-known cuisine from our regions giving a sense of familiarity and comfort for the well-travelled diners. Our buffet is more like an event with guest interactions everywhere, guests can choose to venture to the islands with an array of prepared items or maybe stroll up to the chefs in the open kitchen for a freshly prepared specialty, but don’t forget the famous pass around with items at the whim of the chef.

Eh. Not exciting or particularly interesting. Got bored. The Italian restaurant on the property is better. Restaurants in town recommended by the hotel aren't worth going to

Instead of having breakfast, we found that the lunch price are more attractive for us hence we reserved for the lunch buffet. The lunch spread was very generous, and fresh. We like the special juice, I hardly remember the name, it was made from coconut milk, condensed milk, lemon juice, lemongrass. We also like the pancake, noodles and varieties of... More

Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day and this is one to be cherished. The presentation of the various items is top-notch. Love the homemade yogurt with the fresh honey. The dried fruit is a nice touch. All of the options are top quality and freshly prepared. You can't go wrong with a custom made omelet! The staff are... More

The hotel chain has made a huge effort to create supper food for their main restaurant. Somebody should go back for retraining. Has nothing to do with the high caliber exciting food served at Le Meridien Chiang Mai.

Very good food in the buffets but maybe a bit repetitive. A la carte was good with some interesting attempts at gourmet Thai that were tasty but not completely successful. Service excellent though - and consistently good throughout the resort.

Somehow the chef figured out a way to make food bland in Thailand. The pasta had sat out in a hot dish so long it had gone hard again. They just don't seem to care.

We came for dinner while staying at the hotel. The setting is lovely if you are out on the patio. The buffet was extensive but had mostly pork or cream based options for main courses so we ordered off the menu. I ordered the papaya salad which was too spicy to eat even though I asked for light spice. My... More

Good breakfast buffet selection. The price was high by local standards but reasonable for the US. The service was good and they were willing to get anything special that you requested. For some reason the smoked salmon is not put out so you must ask for them to bring it to you. The made to order stuff was the best... More

We came for the breakfast buffet. While the selection was good, the quality of the food was just ok. There were only 4 types of fruit, cereal, different breads, a hot station with some food that wasn't very Thai nor European. The made to order section was crowded as they couldn't get things right. They had pancakes but no syrup.... More
