Friday dinner buffet.

A nice not overly done buffet. Interesting and tasty tit bits all over the place.

Selection just right, not too much, not too little.

A HKD 130 bottomless wine add on is a +.

Food was tasty + fresh.

Seated in comfy lounge area with live music filtering through from nearby q88 bar. Nice.

Worth a visit

“excellent brunch”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

My daughter and I wanted to eat a late brunch so went to another place at Pacific Place but they didn't have a weekday brunch so we went to the Cafe on the 5th floor. I started with French toast which was served with maple syrup although I was hopng for some confectioner's sugar. The hot chocolate came with just the right amount of sugar and was a huge pot and really delicious. I also sampled a small donut with sugar on top and some smoked salmon. I tried some of the fruit which was in season and tasty. I also had some of the home fries an d some kind of muesli which was delicious too. I also went for the croissant. My daughter had an omelet with everything. Other items included lots of dim sum, various varieties of fish, bacon, several hams including a sweet one. Cereals, other Chinese dishes, all sorts of bakery products including bagels. Service was self serve but the waiters were also there to remove dishes and provide others and were quick and efficient. There is a good view from this floor but I felt the ceiling was a bit low which was my only complaint. would love to go back.

“Amazing Buffet”
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....”
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”
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.
