“solid, can't go wrong restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

As a Starwood Privilege member, I've been coming to this restaurant for years for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I use it to entertain people, for business meetings, for special occasions, etc. The staff knows me well and has always been professional and courteous. I sometimes get bored with the same meal choices and buffet only because I've been to this restaurant for so long; that's no fault of the restaurant. This is a 5 star cafe in a 5 star hotel; you can't go wrong by coming here.

Dear jazsacher,

Thank you very much for your kind support and loyalty for Orchid Cafe throughout the years.

It is a great pleasure to read that you continue to enjoy the items offered at our buffet line as well as the service provided by our Luxury Collection ambassadors. During the upcoming months, we are looking to have special food themes at our buffet line. I hope that you will be coming to try the new items then.

My team and I look forward to the pleasant opportunity of welcoming you back in the near future.

“Huge spread, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

We dined here on our last night in Bangkok. There are lots of big hotel buffet restaurants in Bangkok and while we haven't eaten at all of them, Orchid Cafe was certainly an excellent choice.

There was a large selection of seafood, including lobster (Pacific - not Atlantic) cooked 3 different ways, huge prawns, oysters, and mussels. There was a sushi station with lots of very fresh fish available as either sushi or sashimi, a grill station offering a selection of meats and seafood, plenty of Thai and western hot dishes, salads, sliced meats, etc. There was also a great selection of fruit and desserts. If you can't find something that you like here, you probably won't be satisfied anywhere.

Service was very prompt and polite. The price was consistent with most Bangkok hotel buffets - ie. expensive, although you would certainly pay more for a spread like this in North America.

If you're a small eater, there are probably better choices in Bangkok. However, if you are looking for a real feast, I would highly recommend Orchid Cafe.

The service excellent unfortunately it was always full and if you come at around 9 to have breakfast there, it was a bit hard to get best spot to sit. Many variety of food to choose, just remember don't eat too much unless you'll get sleepy afterwards!
