Ilang ilang has the best spread in all hotel buffets. They have Japanese, Indian, French, Filipino, Korean, Brazilian and Italian. They have various steak cuts and lamb chops for grill. All dishes are carefully made to ensure they have an authentic taste. there is also a good selection for dessert. Great value for money!

This place was hard to find, as none of the taxi drivers seemed to know where it is, in the end ,I took grab taxi, cheap and easy. This place is so unusual, it really is special, a real must and worth the price

Our eyes were first treated to their Halloween decors, which spooked the kids a little bit. The kids were given jack-o-lantern "pails" to collect candies from the different buffet stations. Very impressive spread! Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Thai, South American... there's even Halal certified. So much food to choose, I wasn't even able to try half of their offerings! The coconut...

I love seeing the ladies in their long Filipiniana dresses with their welcoming smiles. The male waiters are absolutely lovely - very accommodating to our special requests, always smiling. Another great thing that I look forward to is the selection... More
