Had a good experience at the China Bar Signature Buffet Restaurant. The choices were ample and the food was delicious and certainly above par for a buffet restaurant.

Went for christmas buffet lunch - booked to the hilt with abundant choices for seafood and non seafood lovers at 55 dollars per head. Queueing for food a bit of an issue as extra tables squeezed in to cater fir crowd. Credit card surcharge a rip off at a restaurant such as this. Slow drinks service

Reminded me of an upmarket food court. Lots of seafood if Asian seafood is your pleasure. Not mine as plenty of meat and seafood... More
