Buffet

Café Bistro (Sheraton Hongqiao Hotel)

Location

5 Zunyi Nan Road.//虹桥喜来登酒店内,上海遵义南路5号 Tel: 021-62758888
Shanghai
China

Sr. Jose, the Sheraton’s visiting Spanish chef has done marvelous Spanish dishes with local materials, putting on an excellent buffet for clients hoping to learn about Spanish dishes.

Ambience / Interior:
The ambience provided an international flavor with a view to a quaint Japanese garden, visible from huge windows. The roomy eating area is tastefully furnished in a simple modern style. As the diner walks to the tables, buffet dishes entice him/her to linger a moment before sitting down. The table with fresh chocolates made me stop, but I digress, we shall leave this for later.

Hilton Wangfujing Fizztastic Brunch Turns One

Location

Hilton BJ WFJ, 8 Wangfujing East Street. //王府井希尔顿酒店内,北京王府井东街8 号 Tel:86-10-5812 8888 Ext. 8816
Beijing
China

I can pen verses on the joys of sipping champagne and eating moist chunks of exotic delicacies while under the autumn sky of Beijing…but I would rather let the Hilton Wangfujing’s Fizztastic Brunch let me live it instead.

At the Fizztastic Brunch, you are able to indulge in impeccable seafood, immaculate Portuguese food, traditional Chinese, and adventurous additions of Costa Rican cuisine. All of it is made from the freshest of ingredients and the Tattinger champagne enhances each flavor, with spritely jovial caresses.

Café 1188 (Intercontinental Shanghai Expo)

Location

1188 Xueye Road, Pudong (corner of Yuntai Road & Xueye Road).// 上海浦东新区雪野路1188号(近云台路),洲际世博酒店内 Tel: +86 (0) 21-3858 1188
Shanghai
China

A festival to honor your taste buds via a buffet of vast proportions!

The Intercontinental Shanghai Expo is a new and dynamic 5-star hotel that offers its guests superior service and unmatched quality in every possible way. Within the gorgeous hallways, walking along an exquisitely-colored carpet that resembles the Pudong River, I was introduced to Café 1188.

Garden Court (Huating Hotel)

Location

No. 1200, North Cao Xi Road. // 花苑餐厅,华亭宾馆一层,上海徐汇区漕溪北路1200号 Tel:021-64391000
Shanghai
China

It was one of those grand, red granite lobbies. Bold and familiar; I felt like I had been there before. They do not make them like this nowadays. They really do not – the Huating Hotel is a fantastic and opulent example of the high end hotels that sprang up in the big cities in China in the 80s and 90s. The hotels that would welcome delegates, domestic and foreign, and high end guests travelling China in the post-reform era. Robust and confident architecture reflecting growing economic strength, growing optimism.

Feast Sheraton Pudong

Location

No. 38, Pu Jian Road, Pudong. // 上海市浦东新区浦建路38号 Tel:(86)(21) 5089 9999
Shanghai
China

Five Star dining should not be exclusive to dishes that often can be a challenge to envision, let alone pronounce. At Sheraton’s (Pudong New District) The Feast’s regular dinner and lunch menus offers both, the rare and exquisite alongside the familiar, which retains the 5-Star touch.

Café Swiss

Location

Swissotel Grand Shanghai, 1 Yu Yuan Road, Jing An District. Tel:+86 21 53559898
Shanghai
China

When called upon to review Café Swiss, part of the Swissotel Grand establishment, it was without question that it will be an evening of gluttony. Since it’s opening in 2008, Café Swiss has already carved a reputation for its repertoire of buffet selection.

Level One (Intercontinental Hotel, Pudong)

Location

No. 777, Zhangyang Road, Pudong. //上海市浦东新区张扬路777号
Shanghai
China

There is a perception that the restaurants connected to the 5 star hotel chains are simply replicated in carbon copy across the world. A trip to the Intercontinental in Pudong and a discussion with Ivan, its head chef, would soon make anyone put aside any such ideas.

Opera Café (Raffles Tianjin)

Location

No. 219 Nanjing Road, Heping District of Tianjin //天津菜佛士酒店,中国天津市 和平区南京路219号.
Tianjin
China

Good dining and buffet-style eating are typically antithetical to each other. Generally, as portions and guests increase, the quality and freshness of the food decrease. At the new Tianjin Raffles the chef has conquered this problem by focusing the buffet around smaller portions and reducing the dining population to “café” size. Both efforts have elevated the Opera Buffet to Raffles brand standards of excellence.

Spectrum

Location

189 Nanjing Road, Heping District, Tianjin // 天津市和平区南京189号 Tel:022-83198888
Tianjin
China

The proprietors of Hotel Nikko have chosen the name of their newest restaurant rather aptly. Spectrum All-day Dining has national foods from nearly every color of the rainbow. The eatery specializes in buffet eating, although an a la carte menu is also available for those who miss the main dining hours. I visited Spectrum for their lunchtime buffet open Monday-Saturday, 12:00-2:30pm. At the price of 108 rmb I was surprised by the quality and variety of the buffet layout.

Café (Hyatt Regency Hangzhou)

Location

28 Hubin Road, Hangzhou // 杭州湖滨路28号 Tel: 0571 8779 1234
Hangzhou, 33
China

Hyatt Regency Hangzhou is a venerable staple in the luxury hotel options of Hangzhou. While facing stiff competition from other sumptuous hotels that seem to pop up on a monthly basis, such as Wyndham Grand Royale and soon-to-be launched Marriott, no one can beat the locale of the Hyatt. Situated in the heart of luxury shopping area close to West Lake, the premier tourist attraction of Hangzhou, the Hyatt is a perfect option for tourists and business people alike. I recently had the pleasure of dining at Café, the Western restaurant located on the first floor of the hotel.
