Dined at this restaurant this evening. Good selection of western and Chinese food on offer. Shanghai style noodle counter where you select what you want cooked in a broth - tasty! Large variety of mushrooms. Steak cooked to order - tender but very small and not so flavoursome. The lamb rack was much better. Nice pizza - just had one... More

We had drinks and snacks here one night. The service is excellent, the Chinese wine was great. Food, especially dessert, was very good. Very comfortable and chic restaurant in the Sofitel.

Chefs Ning and Alex have put together a fantastic spread and it is definitely worth checking out. Have tried the buffet spread at the Hilton closeby and at the Shangri-la, but the one at Sofitel easily beats them, well done

We try to avoid buffets for dinner because they are usually over priced and (to me) unappealing. This was no different. This is a huge restaurant that services this very large hotel so if you do go, get there early. Otherwise you'll find a lot of empty dishes that have not been replenished. I rated this restaurant average because the... More

The food of this international buffet is really good and fresh! The best fish I have eaten! I like that you can try Chinese food, too, along Mediterranean food and French cheese (roquefort, brie, camembert, fromage de chevre, emmental...) ! The Muslim food there is quite tasty, I did not expect it to be. I am a big fan of... More

Lots of variety buffet, but nothing spectacular. And it was expensive. Don't order bottled water because it comes free with the meal - by the juice bar. There's a pitcher of beer at the juice bar as well. The egg tart was very good though.

The buffet was wide ranging but much of it was old warmed up. The staff hurried us out after we had only a couple of plates. The price of about 280 Yuan was extortionate when you could go into the city and get a better meal for about 60 - 70 Yaun

Had dinner here for 2 nights during our stay at the Sofitel. Please note 15% service charge is automatically added to the advertised food prices. It is expensive. The Buffet is 288 RMB per person but it included a lot of different type of food as well as soft drinks and beer. Food was tasty and everything was ok but... More

Shame i could not give this place, i don't think it dignifies calling it a restaurant, a minus. I can't imagine anyone recommending it except themselves. Started off badly with no water brought to table, then no lemonade for my wife's Pims. The flower floating in a stagnant glass of water was so badly wilted it should have been buried.... More
