Very good choices of dishes However the tempura(ebi) is a total fail. It tastes and looks like camaron rebusado. Th price is quite expensive ($188) and the fruits are limted. I enjoyed the lobter and thecrabs

Simply put, Lemon Garden serves up one of the best buffet in klang valley. Without a doubt, the food is alway fresh & tasty.

Popped in here for breakfast during our stay at Shangri-la KL. The buffet spread is expansive and includes both Western and Malaysian cuisine. As we were in Malaysia, we decided to focus ur attention on the wide array of Malaysian cuisine which were sub-divided into Malay, Indian and Chinese, reflecting the races in Malaysia. The stand-outs were an amazing curry... More

Have been to Lemon Garden many times for the buffet. The buffet as usual offered a good spread and quality of food including sashimi, oyster and seafood. Unfortunately, this time, I found the food not as tasty as the past. The otak-otak was terrible. Seafood was however fresh and that probably is one of the reason why people come here... More

The buffet spread for both dinner and breakfast is expansive but unimpressive. I also detected dishes that seem recycled from the previous night for breakfast. Given the immense culinary delights that Malaysia possesses, this buffet seemed to miss every opportunity to capitalise on. Particularly disappointed as the buffet offerings at their properties in Jakarta, Manila etc are simply outstanding.

We are guests at the Shangri-La hotel and it's quite disappointing that this place is part of this amazing hotel. The food was tasteless & there wasn't many options at all. My husband and I were very excited to have some fresh seafood and it was far from it!
