Good spread of food but average tasting

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... read 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!

I had heard that Lemon Garden offered one of the best buffets in KL, but my experience last night was so bad I didn't even stay to taste the food.

We have a big event in-house and three-quarter of the restaurant was held for this group. But we should have better anticipate and managed the reservations well. Hence, please accept our apologies once again. In any case, I... More

For the seafood and sahimi lover, this is a place where you can get lots of them. Given the price of RM85++, it is consider a worthwhile buffet. Besides these, they have the indian and vegetarian food, the western stuff like roast beef, lamb shank, the chinese stuff like steamed fish, stir fried, the pastries and desserts. We had a... More

If you go then you should have the buffet as the spread is fantastic. I have returned many times and yet I have not managed to sample more than half of the variety of food on offer.
