Always come here for dinner with family and friends. The dinner has plenty of choice but depends on which day that you are coming.

They try hard and you can't fault them for this. Th breakfast buffet is good.The main dishes on the buffet (lunch), especially Asian are good. Most of the western offerings are not as good.

We were put up in the Hotel Bangi-Putrajaya (the new name for Hotel Equatorial Bangi) and breakfast at Café Lavista was complimentary. The Asian fares were OK but what I found they did well is the cheese croissant. Other than that, it was a normal spread as you would expect in any other 4+ stars hotels.

Option for a buffet evening meal worked out at $75 but you could get almost anything, so good value for me as I was only eating breakfast and dinner.

Being served the same food for lunch and dinner! Not much variety in the buffet spread. Not recommended for guests who stay for more than 2 nights.

However what they have are more than enough, with the price was competitive with the delicacies that the had offered. I... More
