There was one weekend, mom wanted to bring us for a good lunch and decided that Lemon Garden buffet was the best option. Plus a really close friend of hers has memebership card that offers a 25% off the actual price which is great. Be prepared that the place will be very crowded because it is the weekend. So it will be a good idea to make a reservation beforehand and also, do not be late as they will only hold your table for fifteen minutes maximum. But the amount of choices and food you get to
Be prepared that the place will be very crowded because it is the weekend. So it will be a good idea to make a reservation beforehand and also, do not be late as they will only hold your table for fifteen minutes maximum. But the amount of choices and food you get to eat there will be well worth it, because the lunch session lasts from 12pm to 4pm. (; This is the cold cuts section where they also provide different selection of cheeses and also breads. I went a little too heavy on this section because I really liked the cold cuts + cheese, especially the smoked salmon and brie cheese. However the breads were slightly stale because it has been left on the counter for quite a while I presume. This was my first round of food, giving my stomach some time to wake up to all of the food around me first. Plus it wasn't long after my plate was left untouched where the serves will come to take it away. Service there is top-notch. If you're feeling for something Italian, they provide a section for that too. They have the usual salad and also very standard roasted vegetables in olive oil. Also pastas are readily available too and the best thing is, the plate of pasta is cooked to order. There's also the Asian corner where they have chinese, malay and indian cuisine. All of which tastes really good, but too filling so I don't indulge too much in this to save stomach space for the main star. One thing about Lemon Garden buffet that is really worth the price tag is the seafood/sashimi section. There is plenty on offer and they are always incredibly fresh. Mussels are great without any fishy smell, they also have scallops which are nicely succulent too and one thing I have never thought they would provide is the boiled crayfish.
Also, they have a lot of sashimi such as salmon, tuna, butterfish, all freshly sliced at the bar. All in generous thick portions too so you can eat it to your heart's content.
Then there is the oysters which are freshly shucked throught the entire dining session so you do not have to worry that you won't get any. They also provide lemons, wasabi and also tabasco for your seafood. All my seafood & sashimi super fresh and of the best quality - I had plenty rounds of this. As expected of Shangri-La. Definitely a good buffet spread and place to dine at if you are in for a splurge.
