As today was my mother's birthday, we decided to celebrate by going to Cafe Kool's dinner buffet. We usually eat the lunch buffet, so this was a very special experience - a delightful one! The dinner buffet had a large variety of food, including my mother's favourites: lobsters and crabs. There was alway my staple favourite - souffles, which was again delivered in a very high standard.

The biggest surprise of all would have to be Manager Elvis and Chef Ming giving my mother a cake as a birthday present - so generous! We definitely had a pleasurable and sweet night.

Thank you Chef Ming and Elvis for their warm hospitality

The buffet had a large selection of food ranging from seafood, Chinese, Indian and other cuisines. They also have a great selection of desserts.
Maybe I'm just a fussy eater, I find most of the food too salty and some of the seafood tasted as it has just been defrosted. However, the restaurant is running a promotion and after the discount, it cost around £27 per head which is great value for money. If you're a buffet fan, you will love this place.

Impressive Laksa prepared by Chef Simon. The best broth I have tried. You can taste the different layers (with time spent , Chef’s hard work and the variety of ingredients preparing it) presented in the bowl. Thanks to Chef’s recommendation on the choice of noodles and toppings. Must try!

Had a great lunch buffet with my mom at Cafe Kool.
It offering a wide range of food, from Asian to Western, from appetizers to desserts, but I like the laksa and soufflé pancake most. The Laksa mixed with a good balance of spicy and coconut milk, together with a fresh prawn, it just tasty. The soufflé pancake was eggy and fluffy, worth 10mins for queuing. Special thanks to Chef Ming for the professional recommendations and great service. We will definitely come back again!
