Buffet breakfast cost THB499 per person. The price looked a bit higher than average meal in Chiang Rai, but it was actually worthwhile. Options were limited. However, most of them were delicately made or seasoned. For example, there was only one kind of dumpling, but it was very delicious. They served only four to five types of fruits, but there... More

Had better buffet, cost was reasonable, food was reasonable but nothing dramatic to write home about. Not sure if we ate better at the buffet dinner or at the night market to be truthful.

Description
LATEST RECIPE, features the concept of inspired world gourmet and interactive buffet, offering modern cuisine based on the original elements from around the world. The dishes will include popular and well-known cuisine from our regions giving a sense of familiarity and comfort for the well-travelled diners. Our buffet is more like an event with guest interactions everywhere, guests can choose to venture to the islands with an array of prepared items or maybe stroll up to the chefs in the open kitchen for a freshly prepared specialty, but don’t forget the famous pass around with items at the whim of the chef.
