Marriott Café

This spot is more known for its buffets than its a la carte dishes—and rightfully so. Its a la carte menu is not exactly the most comprehensive around, but its four buffet seatings a day—breakfast, lunch, high tea and dinner—have built a sturdy reputation as one of the more popular hotel buffets in town. Variety isn’t the hallmark of the dinner buffet here, but you’ll still get a decent range of perennial classics found at all international buffets. The stars of our meal were the poached crayfish, prawns and oysters—so fresh and superb that we helped ourselves to more than one serving. Most offerings we tasted were good as well—save for the slightly overcooked mee goreng and the lukewarm scallops. Out of an array of desserts that included tarts, cakes, puddings and more, we liked the chocolate mousse best. The service staff are generally polite. This, together with the relaxing and tranquil ambiance in this cafe drenched in hues of orange, makes it easy to see why people keep coming back. To sum up, you won’t find very exceptional food, but everything else invites you to linger and enjoy a leisurely meal.
