You could have smorgasbord or Al la carte, we chose Al la carte most nights and great variety to choose from and the meals were always great. Had smorgasbord once but so much to choose from and food not as hot as we would have...liked. Still enjoyed it.More

Family visit with 2 kids. Ordered beef rendang which was bland/tasteless. Burger, pizza, Chix popcorn was not up to expectation. Bill presented before the meal was finished, the cashier cannot trace our membership number etc.. disappointed.

Modern day buffet laid out as an international street in style. We were all inclusive and I would suggest you take out this option. This enables to try new things and makes your stay more affordable. Back to the restaurant. Opens for lunch daily and...it’s bar services the pool. Can see this May get very busy in high season. Evening it becomes the buffet restaurant which is one of the best we have encountered on our travels. The selection could not fail to please. Service is with a smile. Ample tables and an enjoyable experience in the night air and must say all the staff from the cleaners to head chef are wonderful and deliver the customer service you expect from a Shangri.More

We had the "market style" buffet and it was a case of picking what you like from the stalls; they cook it and send it to your table.

This is an outdoor (covered) eating area setup like a hawkers market with different food options at each stall and you can eat as much as you like from wherever you like. All of the food was excellent particularly the sate cart. Service was great...but not cheap at AUD$60 each. We had a deal with two free buffet dinners so we used that and ate here twice.More

We dine there on our last day as we didnt want to go out. It was a mixed buffet of local food. A good spread and some were cooked on the spot. There was plenty of food for everyone to experience with. As we dont...eat heavy dinner, we were selective but those we had consumed were of good quality. My wife was very impressed with the stir fried vegetables and also the desserts. I tried the fried kway teow and the chef was pretty good at it. The service staff was less attentive here as in the other restaurants in the resort. Plates were not cleared even after guests had departed. We literally have to clear our own plates until it was at the later stage of dinning when we were about done that the staff started to circulate around. The band from Sampan Bar came over to serenade the diners and this was great. It liven up the dining atmosphere. For the visitors, it is a great place for sampling local food, especially if you are a large eater. Enjoy you guys!More

Had a lovely meal and was then surprised to be presented with the bill before being asked if we wanted dessert. Due to a lack of communication, we were not told that the restaurant closed at 9pm. Joel stepped in and saved the day. He...dealt graciously with what could have been a disappointing situation. He is a credit to the Rasa Ria and definitely gets my nomination for employee of the month. Thank you, Joel - I hope that the Shangri La group appreciate you!More
