“Just book it......It was one of our best meals.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

We had supper here, it was prefect for me, who is veggie and my husband who isn't. The service was fantastic and they couldn't be more accommodating, allowing me to choose both from the al'carte and buffet. apparently the lobster and the lamb curry were so amazing that they were worthy of two visits back to the buffet. The desserts were phenomenal. The atmosphere is young, not stuffy and it's a great place to have any meal, it's even considered normal to have your phone on the table and use it whilst you eat. What are you waiting for...Book it!

“Lobster Claws for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Here are my the Market Lunch buffet Highlights: lobster claws, long crab legs, salmon sashimi, young shrimp sashimi, Peking duck, Crocodile ( really)? Soup.

If you really want to get into the heart or main course of the buffet, concentrate and focus on the grilled lamb and beef rib eye.
All deserts were delectable. Service was superb. I enjoyed my 2 hours eating a great food. It will probably take a couple of weeks to shed the extra weight garnered from the buffet.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

I was here twice in the same day in the same day – for breakfast and then for dinner.

For breakfast, they have nice American style choices. Everything was tasty and plentiful. The food quality was excellent. Their orange juice was freshly squeezed.

For dinner, we had buffet. They had all kinds of international food that you can imagine. Their selection of curry was nice, plenty of meat, although if you are Asian, you may find it a bit too sweet (westerners love it sweet, while Asians prefer spicy). I mentioned this to the waiter and they came out with a more spicy curry just for me!

The atmosphere was excellent. I went to take a look at their open kitchen and it was very clean. I could see that things were really made from scratch. And all vegetables were fresh. The staff were always smiling and polite. More over they seemed to enjoy their job, which also makes this store more lively.

Some tips: On Fri night and Sat night, you may want to make a reservation, as they are quite crowded.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Loved the assortment of foods. Food was exceptional and fresh. Beautifully displayed dishes as well. Very crowded but the service was so exceptional that it made up for the crowds. We like it so much that we ate there twice. If you stayed at the hotel, they made sure you could get a reservation.

“A great breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

I really enjoyed this restaurants breakfast buffet, as they had many different types of food. They even went to the length to make a special place for Halal food as they knew that is all I will be eating.

The chef can cook you any morning dish you wanted and it was great.
