Great Variety

What a treat - fantastic buffet! Sushi was fantastic. Expensive but worth it. We loved the variety of cuisines on offer - something for every taste.

This was highly recommended to us - so we had to go. It is a fantastic buffet. We travelled by train to and walked around the financial district before dinner. The reception, service and visit and chat from the Austrian Manager was crisp and refined. The wine was French from Alsace - excellent Pinot Blanc. We started with sushi and... More

The layout of the brunch is a plus, where there are multiple different stations with a wide variety of food available. If you prefer baguette and Italian deli meats they've got it; or a sushi/cooked seafood station, then dessert,…a far end of the restaurant has additional cooked foods more w/n the Asian region. Anyway, lots to try here and great... More

I usually run away from the buffets as I always find that the quality is rarely there. This time it is different. Seafood, Indian food, Pekin Duck, Ice Cream, everything is delicious. I strongly recommend it.

Excellent spread where everyone is catered for. The drinks packages are a good idea but tend to push the price of the meal up alarmingly. Every station is superb and the quality is outstanding. Well worth a visit.

When in China, we cone to many places for 1 or 2 nights... So we try not to go wrong! This buffet experience has by far exceeded our expectations! The venue is inside the Shangri-la hotel (by the way, very good as well) on the second floor. It has plenty of staff for the quantity of tables, and service is... More

We have been coming here for 8 years now, it has always been a pleasure. The quality from each salad leaf to Indian curry, roasts, Cantonese dishes, Thai, Japanese are superb, fresh, and well displayed. Congrats to the consistency of the very good level of quality and service. The (French?) manager sets the example to his staff, is hands on,... More
