The breakfast spread is extensive and the quality of food was good too. The same could be said about its lunch and dinner buffet. The staff could be quite inattentive. At times during breakfast, it could get quite crowded.

All nationalities catered for. Service good, food excellent. Quite expensive but you can become a member and save 40 percent off the buffets which are extremely good.

The choice at the buffet at the Spice Market is absolutely huge. Shrimps, crab, oysters, indian curries, italian, malaysian, you name it. Everything I had was delicious. It was a little more expensive than the local restaurants, but it was worth it.

Came here for dinner and left feeling extremely happy with our choice. I think the price you pay for the quality of food is incredible even if you don't get as much variety as I have seen in other buffets.

Hi. It's better to check with the cafe. Gluten free options are relatively new in Malaysia. It would be good to email your hotel and arrange with the chef on your specialized menu. Do check out Real Food Cafe in Straits Quay... More
