Meal budget per person (without drinks) Category 1 (under 60000 KRW, 50 USD) The quality of breakfast at Momo cafe is beyond expectation. (normally, the charge even for Platinum elite or higher for breakfast at Momo cafe is 34000 KRW and/or 25000 KRW for children...below 14)  Especially, the Vietnamese Rice Noodles from noodle station are tasty and impressive. (Whereas Udon is so so because the noodles of udon are not chewy.) Compared to Tavolo24 in JW Marriott Dongdaemun, this restaurant does not have good view (neither Namdaemun nor Seoul Tower), but quality of buffet is good.More

Went there with my wife for lunch, 130 000 won for both of us. Bit hefty but not a problem if the quality is matched. I'll make it short: The cheese was awful (and I am swiss), one of my 2 breads were actually hard...outside and gamey inside.. Some meat was very hard to chew. Some tasted excellent. The takoyaki was quite poor, my street vendor at home gives me better. The cakes were of the cheapest taste.. kinda like supermarket. My local cafe gives me beyond better ones. The ice cream was worse than natuur. The sushi was good, but had surprisingly little rice on it. It is rice and fish though, kinda hard to mess up. I still enjoyed it with my wife together and have no particular regrets. But if I am a pure and honest critic, based on my experiences of high end buffets, then I would say: That was barely average. And she agreed btw. Ps: Pineapples were good. At least it was ripe.More

Had a couple of lunches and breakfasts here as I was staying in the hotel. Great buffet service, friendly staff and a nice mix of Korean and non Korean cuisine.

I am staying at the hotel and have paid extra for the executive floor. I have food allergies and did not have a good selection. So, I went to Momo Cafe for dinner. I had to pick between the buffet and a la carte before...sitting down. As a foreigner, they expected me to drink the tap water. When I asked for bottled water, they wanted to charge extra above the expensive KWN 55,000 buffet price. I could not get anything to drink other than tea. When my pasta was being cooked, they added shrimp when I did not ask. Good thing I saw it happen. I explained I had a seafood allergy and they started over. However, they used the same chop sticks as they were using to prepare another dish with shrimp. I had to stop them again and explain my allergy. If I was not paying attention, I would have been hospitalized. I could not change my choice to a la cater and was afraid to order anything else. I had to pay the KWN 55,000. This was the worst experience I have had while traveling. Morale of this review: Be vigilant at this restaurant if you have a food allergy.More

Came here for a lunch buffet. I got a reservation through Klook - it was cheaper by about HKD 20. I would note that the variety was average but the quality of the food was excellent. You have two types of soup and also rice...porridge. For appetizers, you have cold cuts, sashimi, sushi, salads and cold Korean starters. The main courses include Western and Korean, with a noodle station. For dessert, there were several cakes, several types of desserts, two bowls of punch - fruit & cinnamon - and four different flavours of ice cream. If you want to add drinks, you need to pay an extra KRW 6000. Service was excellent as I had a problem with my booking (the local company Red Table didn't make my reservation for me), so the staff allowed me to dine while they confirmed my reservation.More

Nightly buffet is the best value and you can add the drinks package; obviously Korean food is the best. Breakfast also very good range of international
