“Amazing Buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

It is a pricey buffet but the abundance of seafood selection is worth the price. I love the shrimps and lobster, especially with the variety of sauces available. My favorite sauce for the poached/steamed seafood is the Thai chili lime sauce. The dessert selection is also fabulous. You must go!

“Possibly the best Buffet in Hong Kong....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

This is possibly the best Buffet in Hong Kong....
The prices are reasonable. Yet tasty food. Offering a wide selection including Smoked Salmon, Sashimi, Sushi, Seafood, Prime Rib, excellent Roast Chicken thighs, Hainan chicken rice, Hagen Daz ice cream and much much more. Staff are very attentive. And there seems to be virtually unlimited orange juice available.
In short. If you're hungry. And want good quality food. At a good price. At a great buffet. Come here.
There is one down side about this place: This place is VERY popular. And thus it's very difficult to get a table. Make sure you get a reservation, perhaps book a few days in advance?

“Great location. Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

One place in Hong Kong where you are always assured to get great food is the Marriot Cafe.
The spread especially for breakfast is superb.
There are many Continental/Chinese/Indian options.
The seating has been well thought out and does not feel crowded.
Staff pleasant & attentive.
Dinner buffet is an option and recommended if one chooses in house dining.
Desserts are quite a temptation for ones with a sweat tooth.

“Wonderful/stays open late for travelers arriving at late hours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

I could not have made a better club sandwich myself! It was delicious after 18 hours in a plane! My husband ordered the burger and it was grilled perfectly.The service was quite pleasant too. We could hear the live music from the bar below which was nice.
I would reccomend this any one staying at the JW.

“Afternoon Tea at the Marriott”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

This is more of an afternoon buffet, rather than one of the more formal and traditional English teas offered in some of the other HK hotels. The buffet runs every weekday from 3.30 to 6.00 and offers a pot of tea and continual grazing during this time. There are a variety of asian and western foods on offer, including sushi, noodles, dim sum, deli meets, cheeses and salads, sandwiches etc, plus a large selection of desserts, cakes, scones, crapes, ice-cream and fruit. At weekends the afternoon prices are a little higher, but they also offer a champagne brunch in the mornings.

As well as the hotel guests, this is a place where girlfriends meet up for an afternoon chat or business men do deals over cake. I've taken visiting friends and family there several times and they've all really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and the food. It's also a good place to sit and relax with a book in the afternoon if you are on your own.

As in any restaurant, there are some days when food choices and service are better than others, but I have never felt that I wasn't getting values for money.
