I read many reviews and through word-of-mouth that this place is a must try buffet. And so I did. The customer service was good, without needing to call for them they're always on their toes. They knew when to clear the plates away and to re-fill our drinks. There were 5 sections - chinese, japanese, malay/indian and western choices, and... More

A really outstanding buffet. Lots of different cuisines offered and, unlike so many buffets, each dish was really well prepared and served. And the dessert station is to die for. Really worth the trip even if you are not staying in the Shangri La - and remarkably affordable.

Overbooked, with our reserved table having been given away we were initially put on a lounge table with armchairs. Not ideal for eating. Waiting staff inexperienced and very flustered due to the sheer weight of numbers. Least enjoyable Xmas Day lunch in KL, with the much cheaper Concorde offering a better atmosphere and food of a similar quality if not... More

Saturday night seafood night was outstanding in every respect. The freshness of the seafood was one thing, the other being the variety of other dishes presented. Could not fault the service, it was an extremely busy night, and was just as well we booked, towards the latter part of the evening, unfortunately some items of seafoods were limited. Congratulations to... More

Have been here and very satisfied with the seafood quality here and also the service level but not until today where they messed up the reservation preference table by a guy named Steve Ho as claimed by the frontline staff who served me. My whole family was made to stand outside the entrance. This is way out of Shang standard.... More

Probably one of the better buffets I have experienced. The whole variety is there to enjoy. Fresh seafood stand is impressive. Been multiple times and always enjoyable. 115 MYR nett is quite reasonable in a 5 star hotel

Went there for a family birthday function. Was not as impressed with it. Service was slow and absent most of the time. Standard food variety. Not outstanding , just normal. Sushi and seafood bar was really dissapointing. It wasn't fresh and it wasn't presented well. Meat section was great, I personally enjoyed the ice cream. Very laid back and normal... More

We were staying in the Shangri-La Hotel and a buffet breakfast was served in the Cafe each morning. The staff were all very pleasant and the service was good. The range of food on offer was up to the usual Shangri-La standard and the chefs were on hand to prepare eggs to your liking. It ranks among the best breakfast... More
