Although this is in the modern part of this historic hotel it is tastefully set out with a very wide range of excellent food options from around the world. However the Colonial Cafe upstairs in the old wing is not to be missed. Every evening a world class jazz quartet (the family Soliano, fronted by a wonderful singer/pianist Isabella) play... More

As usual the food variety was great . However this time we came early and unfortunately the food placecards were not yet put in position. Thus some patrons especially overseas vegetarians had trouble finding what they can eat. One lady was looking for a vegetarian soup for her noodles..but could not get help. Otherwise the spread was good. Maybe the... More

Was there with few colleagues for their buffet dinner. With the price paid, we were satisfied and happy with its overall food quality. Am impressed of them serving pretty good selection of tea though! However, it was a busy night there and servers seems busy running around but service was generally fine. Dishes were cleared before we start stacking up... More

We came to Contango as a family and we quite enjoyed the evening. Food was good, chefs very friendly but the venue lacked a bit of atmosphere. Perhaps some background music and some better signage on food, ie English translation on local foods. Just in small print down the bottom of the signs would be helpful.

We had a farewell lunch buffet at your wonderful establishment (for the second time) today. As expected, your food was simply to die for. The range of food was just the right amount to make a foodie giddy. Everything was just so - hitting the spot every time. Our favourite, among others, had to be the fresh selection of sushis,...
