There was the usual sushi bar, cart of dumplings, and salad bar where you could make your own salad according to your preference.
|Indian Appetizer Salad|
|Filipino-Style Eggplant Salad|
|Singaporean Noodles & Shrimp Salad|
|Malaysian Calamari Salad|
Here are some of the mains:
|Thai Green Vegetable Curry|
|Stir Fried Noodles with Vegetables|
|Stir Fried Beef with Spring Onions|
|Sweet & Sour Fish|
Needless to say, we were very pleased with the restaurant's offerings. I really liked the Singaporean Noodles & Shrimp Salad and Malaysian Calamari Salad, as well as the Stir Fried Beef with Spring Onions, Sweet & Sour Fish, and Fish Tajine.
I did wonder, though, since it was an Asian themed buffet, why some of the mains didn't mention anything about what country it was from or what exactly the dishes were called. Sure we know Nasi Goreng, Dal Makhani, and Thai Green Vegetable Curry, but what about the others? Even though 90% of the diners that day were Asian, it would still be good to know the names of all of the food and which countries the recipes originated from.
The kids weren't left out, though. They also had their own little set-up inside the Kids Corner.
While Hubby and I enjoyed spoonfuls of dessert to conclude our meal, Caila and Sophie each decorated chocolate cupcakes with icing and sweets which they happily enjoyed devouring for their dessert.
