With its maze of skyscrapers and twinkling city lights, the view of Hong Kong’s skyline never gets old. This is particularly true at The Grand Buffet, Hong Kong’s only 360- degree revolving restaurant offering a spectacular dining experience from 62 stories above ground. With fine wines, fresh seafood and a changing panorama throughout the evening, it’s hard to find a better place than The Grand Buffet to dine with all of Hong Kong at your feet.
It may be an exclusive setting, but the restaurant is warm and welcoming, with friendly and attentive staff that go well beyond the norm for typical buffet-style service. The attention to hospitality is no coincidence – The Grand Buffet is run by Lisboa Food and Wines who also oversee renowned three-Michelin-star venue, L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon.
With the group’s dedication to fine wines and gourmet foods, this is by no means your
ordinary, run-of-the-mill buffet. The lukewarm mush and bain-maries are replaced by worldclass dishes made by an astute and experienced kitchen team, led by industry veteran, Eric Tin. With over 20 years of experience in top kitchens around Hong Kong, Eric ensures the food at The Grand Buffet doesn’t play second fiddle to the beautiful setting.
With everything from fresh seafood to Cantonese barbecue to tempura and teppanyaki to tempt your palate, the hardest part is knowing where to start. To ease in slowly, sidle up to the seafood counter and pile up your plate with freshly shucked oysters, mussels, prawns, periwinkles and lobsters. Next, move over to the seasonal salad selection, pick up a few baskets from the dim sum counter, or order a DIY bowl of the renowned laksa at
the noodle bar.
The Grand Buffet’s diverse spread charts a culinary path across the globe: you could start in Japan with fresh sushi and sashimi, head to Southeast Asia to sample specialties such as tom yum goong, Vietnamese rice paper rolls and pandan cake, then finish in India with traditional curries and naan. You can also enjoy freshly cooked live shrimp from the fish tank, Cantonese dim sum, tempura and noodles from their ‘a-la-minute buffet’.
From the traditional roast carvery to the Italian pasta station, the options are endless.
And for those with a sweet tooth, there’s a handsome reward at the end: a rainbow-hued assortment of sweet confections ranging from lemon tarts to key lime pies, homemade macarons and creamy ice cream topped with sprinkles and nuts. Finally, the chocolate fountain: a towering gold centrepiece from which melted chocolate cascades in sweet ripples, waiting to coat fresh fruit and marshmallows. How could you resist?
As you soak it all in, the beautiful skyline makes for a sumptuous backdrop to the gastronomic journey. Competitively priced to other all-you-can-eat restaurants in town and with an award-winning list of wines by the
glass, the panoramic views and world-class food are an added bonus. Whether you’re dining in a private room (seating up to 32 guests) or in the main restaurant, The Grand Buffet is an experience that’s worth every penny. The restaurant lets you see all of Hong Kong in one night. And the best part? You don’t even have to leave your seat.
