“Great selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Located in the Shangri-La Hotel this place is simply one of the best buffet restaurant in Jakarta, the selection of food is massive, first timer (like me) will be a little confused on the various selection of food, although they did make sections to help you find what you are looking.

When I go there on Saturday for lunch, I was kinda surprised with the amount of crowd eating in there, the place was crowded, sometimes there are line of 5-7 people lining up on a buffet section just to find that they are out off spoons or chopstick (although the waitress is willing to help)

The most important is the food: they are great, you get what you pay for!!

“great food - book ahead at weekends”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

The variety and quality of food on offer here is great, especially the Indian selection. The place is huge but it can still seem quite crowded, and can also be rather noisy, especially if you're sat near a big family group with small kids running around.Not recommended at weekends if you're looking for a quiet/romantic evening out. Wine, as at most upmarket places in Jakarta, is very expensive.

“Good, but #2 in Jakarta? No.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

This is a good buffet, but not an amazing restaurant, which is what the ranking here suggests. In fact, in my opinion, this is not even the best buffet of Jakarta's business hotels--I prefer both the Mandarin and the Mulia. What Satoo has is scale--it is huge. The selection is great and you can just about anything you want. But I would argue too big, actually, affecting quality as well as service. I would rate it a 3.5 compared to other high-end buffets. Good, but not amazing.
