The Best Buffets To Celebrate Christmas

Unlike the Western tradition, Hong Kong families would celebrate their Christmas meal with buffets instead of homemade turkey etc.. I guess you hear the word buffet much less commonly in other parts of the world apart from this Asia’s World City. So, as a simple explanation, buffet gives you a great chance to try a full table of first class food of different genre. If you are still in doubt, simply check out the video below.

A good buffet would be decided based on the quality of the food, the variety it offers, the environment as well as the service of the restaurant. Most importantly, whether it is value for money. Cafe Too at Island Shangri-La (a five star hotel at Admiralty)  has always been voted as the best buffet in Hong Kong. For lunch, it is HKD328 (plus 10% service fee) per an adult. For dinner, it is HKD789 (plus 10% service fee) per an adult.

Since Christmas is a popular festival in Hong Kong, you will need to make the booking 1 month in advance. You may make a reservation at +852 2820 8571 now.
