Seasonal Tastes serve different theme buffet every night and the night I went it is the Malaysian Theme Buffet. The Satay is amazing! And there are a lot of traditional malay kuih served! I enjoyed the wonderful buffet!

Seasonal Tastes in The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa serves daily themed buffet dinner where the menu changes daily.

Monday - "Amazing One Malaysia" for delectable authentic local cuisines

Tuesday & Friday - Poolside BBQ with cultural shows. This is absolutely exciting where diners savour in all the juicy BBQ ribs or succulent seafood while watching the cultural dance and fire blower shows by the pool which overlooks the Andaman Sea. Definitely a perfect dining experience to elevate all your senses.

Wednesday - "Flavors of the World" - both local and international dishes can be found effortlessly under one roof here.

Thursday - "Asia Oriental" - roasted whole duck with sweet garlic soya sauce is definitely not to be missed. Also avaiable are a wide array of scrumptious wok-fried dishes.

Saturday - "Mediterranean Adventures". Generous fresh seafood in tapas bar & live pasta section, personally love the osso bucco on vegetable polenta and the spinach cannelloni!

Sunday - "Pan Asian" - Signature dishes from Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia and India all gathered for a night here. Teriyaki, masala and curries will ensure you a hearty dinner.

Personally, my best loved themed buffet dinner here is "Mediterranean Adventures" on Saturday as me being a big fan of cheese and anything creamy, not to forget all the pastas! Poolside BBQ is very unique, where you'll get to dine under the starry skies, surrounded by the serenity of Andaman Sea in the evening and at the same time, entertaining cultural shows to keep your eyes busy...

What I love about buffet in Seasonal Tastes, apart from the food, is the SuperFoods salab bar and the dessert counter. I have never get so tempted to have salad everytime I go for buffet dinner but it seems like a must whenever I am here. Everything seems so fresh and healthy, I have "invented" an innovative salad where I'll sprinkle dark chocolate (one of the SuperFoods) with my brocolli and capsicum and they go well!

I have a weakness for chocolate as well, thus chocolate fountain here is a BIG plus. Condiments such as chocolate brownie, butter cake, fresh cut fruits are available. Wonder if they could add marshmallow as well? That would be totally perfect!

I am a foodie and do enjoy good food (I kinda of live to eat). Brought my sis and bro-in-law who visited Langkawi few weeks ago to Seasonal Tastes. They were kind of picky in terms of food but they totally enjoyed their dinner so much here! What a relief for me...

It's definitely a good place for wonderful bufffet dinner, a lot better than what I used to have back in my so-called "city hometown", the atmosphere here is perfect.

Another best part of Seasonal Tastes is they serve SuperFoods breakfast with FREE-FLOW of sparkling wine at only RM 65 + per person. A totally renewing and yet luxurious breakfast experience.
Imagine sipping sparkling wine in the morning, enjoying the sun and the stunning sea view, life couldn't have been better than this...

I had dinner at Taste restaurant a few weeks ago during their Mediterranean buffet night, so this review is only for that and not for the other food themes they have during other days of the week.

The selection of food was huge and I’m doing this review from memory. Apologies if some descriptions are vague, but I felt I should write this review anyway because it was really one of the most remarkable meals I’ve ever had.

The selections were single servings in ceramic trays. At first I felt inconvenienced but I quickly found out you can sample tons of different foods this way and still have room to eat more. I was mainly at the tapas section, and just about everything was delicious—the scallops, the cheeses and especially these cubes of minced raw tuna (can’t remember the name).

For some reason, there was a sushi table too. Being a sushi freak, I didn’t bother to ask what it was doing there on Mediterranean night and just starting eating. I had raw salads and found the salad oil absolutely terrific. There were several salad oils and I didn’t make note of the one I had, unfortunately. Their wholegrain breads, all made on the premises I was told, were simply amazing.

The thing about the food was that none of it (except for the VERY tart salsa that accompanied the fried potatoes) was an explosion of taste, like most SE Asian food. It was all food that was relatively simple but perfectly balanced and controlled. With the salad oil, I didn’t even notice how good it was until halfway through my salad. Same with the spinach cannelloni—I stopped in mid-conversation and realised I had NEVER eaten pasta this good. And believe me, pasta has always been one of my food staples since childhood. I don’t eat red meat so unfortunately I can’t comment on the beef and lamb dishes, but my dinner companions seemed to like them. They also had a really good chocolate fountain that night.

I highly recommend their Mediterranean buffet for those who appreciate finesse rather than fireworks in their food. If you come here, I suggest you save all your conversation until after dinner and eat with your eyes closed. Comparatively pricey meal at RM 98 per person (not including drinks)—but hey, I would’ve have paid this if all they served was water and all-you-can-eat spinach cannelloni.
