“if it's seafood you are after, then go for it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

The prices here are what you'd expect for a hotel of this standard. The seafood selection includes fresh oysters, spider crab legs, lobster, prawns and whelk, all served cold with an assortment of dipping sauces. If you are indeed a seafood fan, you can probably get your dollars worth. If not, the hot dishes leave a lot to be desired.

“No windows”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

I had breakfast there a few days ago. Renai has no natural light, low ceiling and is overall simply a dull and plane place. It may be a good place to hide from a typhoon but especially for breakfast I feel daylight is important.

Having said that service and food are fine and the range of the buffet surely will satisfy the must fussy frequent traveler.

“Ala Carte was sufficient. But go early if you want quiet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

There is the buffet, which we don't do. Ala Carte was sufficient. But go early if you want quiet. Service was friendly and efficient.

“The food was certainly good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

During a recent conference trip to Hong Kong, I had the opportunity to sample the food here at breakfast, lunch and dinner. I was lucky enough to not have to pay for any of the meals (I imagine it's pretty pricey) but I certainly felt that the range and quality of the buffet options were top-notch.

Breakfast was usually a very busy affair since it catered to conference delegates. The usual continental options were available but I liked th fact that more Asian options were also offered. The noodle bar was always popular and offered a variety of garnishings. But what I found most interesting was the restaurant's version of Eggs Benedict in which barberqued pork and local vegetables were added.

Lunchtime was packed with locals including the kids enjoying the weekend brunch. The food options were only slightly wider than breakfast although desserts were now introduced.

However, dinner was the best meal of all. The food range was international with a full seafood bar offering four types of raw oyster, as well as steamed crab legs, yabbies, shrimp and mussels. The surprise was fish roe on a cone, a la The French Laundry. The desserts also really came into their own and were terrific.
