Hotel told us that breakfast was 5MYR if we ate at the Carvery. Upon entering the restaurant, we confirmed with Remy the price for breakfast and he told us 5MYR each. Buffet breakfast items were not replenished. Eggs had been heating too long. Char Kway Teow was dried out. Fruit juice containers were almost empty. Tea pot was empty. After... More

Steak is good and tender. Came out the way I like, medium-rare. Lucky for me it's promotion time. 38 ringgit per serving.

After some Internet search, we decided to try out "The Carvery" that is located next to the lobby of Abell Hotel in Kuching, Sarawak (Malaysia). From its description we thought that we would have the chance to try out a Brazilian "Churrascaria", something that we experienced before in other parts of Asia (Macau, Singapore...); unfortunately the only Brazilian stuff were...

This is a fine-dining restaurant, serving mostly western cuisine in a buffet style. The menu includes: beef, lamb, chicken, fish, noodles (spaghetti, pasta), vegetables, fruits. One thing missing is the dessert. Some items require you to order from the waiter/waitress so that they can cook it in the kitchen. For example, the steak and fish dishes require custom order. Better... More

A bit pricey but then again, the quality of the food is excellent. So, they complement each other. Wide variety of steaks. :)

The staff are very friendly and helpful. The portions are certainly adequate but the quality is not good. The ambiance is very nice and warm. Unfortunately it's not a value for money restaurant for us.

Normally go for the ala carte where you can select the size and type of steak that you want and they will cook according to your done-ness preference. The price comes with soup and salad. Excellent value for money and loved the steak very much. The service is friendly too.

The service provided by the restaurant is the greatest. The employees are really professional, polite and gentle. Foods are great too. Especially the turkey hams. Although it's pricy.

Place looks small but enough to sit at least 100 paxs easily.There were more than 20 of us attending the Reunion and we opt for the Buffet which cost us RM68 per head. We were served Lamb Shoulder, Chicken Sausage, Lamb Chop, Chicken Wrapped with Turkey Ham,... More

2 years ago was the first time having lunch buffet in Carvery with family. Loved the meat, and so gone back the second time. If i were to compare with the first time, the food and service standard seemed to be going down. If you are looking for fairly good value for money buffet, this is it. But as for... More
