“Great value for the price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

The food was excellent! Went there for a family occasion. The buffet offers so many Indonesian food selection, from traditional to modern cuisine. Although I can't remember the price per person, it was definitely a great value. I love their sushi and sashimi corner, the raw seafood looked so fresh. I will definitely go back again on my next visit to Jakarta!

“One of the best buffet restaurant...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

It is worth the try...
Book in advance for dinner eventhough it is weekdays...
Must try the seafood and indian food...
Although an all you can eat buffet at hotels tend to have "plain" taste, it doesn't happened here...
Looking forward for a chance to visit it again...

“Very nice location with good food choices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

This is one place which serves a good selection of various cuisines and nice ambience. Even for vegetarians the choices are good and the best part is they have an Indian counter as well. Very good place for breakfast.

“Best variety of food in one buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

Satoo is set in the downstairs level of the Hotel Shangri-la. Arriving there through Jakarta traffic is a problem but once inside, the hotel lobby and its grounds are a vast, beautiful oasis.
Satoo is a huge restaurant yet is arranged to feel cozy. Through the buffet, diners can make a round-the-world trip in one meal. There's great Italian, Japanese, Indian, Chinese and Indonesian food. Some traditional food stalls from the sidewalks of Jakarta are set up inside the restaurant so that diners can experience the local culture without worrying about sanitation. The variety of fresh fruit is excellent, representing what is in season in Indonesia at the current time. The cheese selection is also excellent - be sure to try the Port Salut if available.
While it is true that the beverages cost extra, they are in big glasses (many of the major hotels serve their drinks in small glasses) and the quality is good, so worth it if you like fresh juice.
Service was attentive without being intrusive.

“A rated Buffet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

Over all this restaurant has one of the best buffets in jakarta but in my opinion i still like the buffet in Ritz carlton hotel jakarta Pacific place and Bengawan at Keraton at the plaza jakarta. However, i would still recomend this restaurant to everyone.
