“Good buffet spread”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

The buffet spread was very good, especially if you are a hotel guest, you get 20% off!
During our visit, they prepared quite a variety of cuisines ~ Japanese, Chinese, Indian etc.

“Good Service, Good Variety.”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

I was told they serve buffet dinners only every night. Seafood was the theme and I love seafood. The variety of food on offer was satisfactory. The seafood were mostly fresh. The cooking was passable. A mass offered buffet is hardly the right occasion to access the quality of the kitchen. But I didn't have any bad dishes.

The sashimi and sushi were not bad. The chef would cut and slice for you whatever you point to. They were all sweet and fresh though not the best cut of the fish. But then again, it is a mass offered buffet after all. I'd say its good enough for $79 per person.

Service was good. Friendly and attentive. They remember your name after asking just once.

“Amazing food..... but”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

Dined on a Friday night after work at around 7.30. The food stations were amazing fresh, excellent quality, and nearly everything was cooked or prepared in front of you. Could not fault anything with the food.

I do agree with other's comments that the service was similar to a food court. The staff had basic training didnt really know what was happening and this unfortunately let the whole experience down.

But based in the above we will still go back and hopefully the service has gotten better
