Not too impressed with the spread

Being served the same food for lunch and dinner! Not much variety in the buffet spread. Not recommended for guests who stay for more than 2 nights.

Had Buffet breakfast and dinner at this establishment which is within the Equatorial Hotel Bangi. The selection was good and taste great, even though I got the feeling the variety was not as plentiful compared with few years ago. However what they have are more than enough, with the price was competitive with the delicacies that the had offered. I... More

Cafe serves really good buffet breakfast, where you can choose between Malay, Chinese and European cuisines. And their sweet stuff is even better. It's very difficult to stop eating there. On the plus side, you can easily skip lunch after such breakfast.

Always come here for a big family dinner as the buffet spread is always good. A range of variety and very tasty. Staff are friendly and efficient at topping up the buffet. It is reasonably priced and layout is generous. The cafe has an outdoor seating area which offers a scenic 'green' view. Would definitely come back again.

We have been enjoying the excellent food and service, and also the views, for more than a week. Only negative point: the nauseating Christmas atmosphere with artificial snow and American X-mas songs. What a shock with local culture and climate !!

My family and I have been here lots of time.The food is excellent and variety.The staff services are smooth and efficient. The restaurant has a glass to ceiling window which allows you to watch the beautiful views of the garden and Bangi skyline.Would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone visiting this Hotel.
