 Rock Oysters on Ice


 Salmon Sashimi on Ice


Chilled Poached Shell Scallops

A heaven for seafood lovers as they get to sate their cravings here with a myriad of fresh and succulent Seafood- freshly shucked Oysters, voluptuous Scallops, appropriately sliced Sashimi, protein-rich Unagi. Scallops could be a usual fare at Seafood-themed buffet but definitely not as huge as these; lightly squeeze some tangy Lemon Juice over the Scallop and the seafood-sweetness with slight-resilient texture will speak for itself.


 Home-made Rolls and rustic Loaves


 Steamed Dim Sum


Tossed Cherry Tomatoes with Buffalo Mozzarella


Cheese Platter with Condiments


 Oyster Rolls in Chinese Sauce


 Boneless Chicken with Nyonya Sauce


Baked Salmon in Puff Pastry

Plethora of appetizers available; diners can expect a wide variety of Soup, Cold Cuts, Fresh Greens in the buffet spread. While I was not impressed with every dish here but I was particularly in love with the Baked Salmon, nevermind on the slightly soggy pastry skin but the fish itself was toothsome; lightly seasoned without unnecessary frills, simple but delectable. Other appetizers available were Caesar Salad, Coleslaw, Chick Peas and Smoked Chicken Breast Salad, Lobster Bisque etc.


 Fish Fillet Curry Kapitan


 Barbecued White Cuttlefish


 Seafood Thermidor


 Sea Cucumber and Dup Mushrooms with Scallops


 Ox-Tail Rendang


 Mutton Kurma


 Barbecued Doper Lamb Rack


 Barbecued White Prawns


 Pan Fried Cod Steaks with Almond Pesto Sauce


 Poached Tiger Prawns in Herbal Soup
 

Pan Fried Fin Light Ginger Sauce

Both Western and Oriental dishes are available in the buffet spread; Mutton Kurma and Ox-Tail Rendang were brilliant, good enough to thrill those with stubborn local palate. The meats were tender with robust flavors but the Lamb Rack stole the spotlight of the evening. The cut I had was nicely grilled to perfection, tender while maintaining the succulent-juicy bite. We were also pleased with the absence of the gamey smell of Lamb; works divinely with a dollop of Mint Jelly and Mustard. Fish lovers would not want to miss their Fish Fillet Kapitan, though slightly dry in texture but the pristine white yet firm flesh with flavorsome curry sauce will leave you wanting for more. Other mains that you can expect to see in the buffet spread are Oven Baked Lobsters with Sarawak Pepper Sauce, Pasta with Carbonara Sauce, Stone Crab Masala, Steamed Dhall Rice etc.


 One of the few types of Eggless Cakes


 Swiss Rolls


 Scones with Fruit Jam


Chocolate Fountain (with assorted condiments available)


 Freshly-made Waffles with Condiments


 Profiteroles


 Raspberry Cheese Cake


Selection of Mixed Fruits

The perfect way to end a sumptuous meal- desserts. Profiteroles left me with the deepest impression, creamily soft with sweet chocolaty coating. Equally good was Raspberry Cheese Cake, velvety smooth, cheesy with a sleek of sweetness and a touch of fruity Raspberry flavor. It excites us like children when we noticed the action stall of making Waffles; however, the Waffles were disappointingly average. They did not manage to get the texture right, though the condiments did manage to salvage some scores. Other desserts available were Tiramisu, Orange Meringue Pie, Paris Brest, Pina Colada, Flan Napolitana, Orange Brulee, Apple Turn Over, free flow of Gelato Ice Cream etc. A selection of Eggless Desserts will be made available too.
