Had better buffet, cost was reasonable, food was reasonable but nothing dramatic to write home about. Not sure if we ate better at the buffet dinner or at the night market to be truthful.

The Latest Recipe's Sunday brunch is something to look forward to. Sometimes, I do not even bother to touch the main dishes and just have the salads - of which there could be several to choose from. They have a seafood section that serves Alaskan King Crab, freshwater prawn and occasionally - good oysters. Their carvery section could have lamb... More

I noticed a string of poor reviews for this restaurant, if you'd like to see some more poor reviews for the restaurant, you can also see them co-mingled in the separate section for hotel reviews. I agree with them all. I can see the management wants to improve, as they take the time to individually reply to each review, and... More

You can enjoy either buffet or a la carte dishes here for all day! Dinner buffet serves with lots of seafood and a la carte dishes are mostly Thai cuisine. We tried both which all taste good.

We enjoyed our two breakfasts and one dinner at the restaurant. The food was beautifully presented and selection was varied. May Asian and Western foods offered at both breakfast and dinner. The price for dinner was the equivalent of USD $25pp. Nearly every item we consumed was delicious but our tablemates did not have the same opinion about their choices.... More

We had lunch on Dec. 23. My Australian beef burger was terrible. The meet was dry and overcooked. No dressing and tiny salad slices and only small cocktail tomatoes.

Going to a four star hotel and paying less than 300 Thai baht for a buffet lunch Monday to Friday is very good value. The presentation is excellent and there is a large variety of food .If you enjoy sweets you will be surprised at the large selection available with two different types of ice creams. Highly recommended.

Description
LATEST RECIPE, features the concept of inspired world gourmet and interactive buffet, offering modern cuisine based on the original elements from around the world. The dishes will include popular and well-known cuisine from our regions giving a sense of familiarity and comfort for the well-travelled diners. Our buffet is more like an event with guest interactions everywhere, guests can choose to venture to the islands with an array of prepared items or maybe stroll up to the chefs in the open kitchen for a freshly prepared specialty, but don’t forget the famous pass around with items at the whim of the chef.
