Thoroughly enjoyed spending time here. Beautiful, shady location under the rain trees, facing the beach. We tried both the breakfast and dinner buffets and found them abundant and widely varied.  Perhaps better to plan to eat breakfast before 9.30 across the weekend in order to...More

The Spice Market hosts the Shangri LA's breakfast buffet which is vast and busy and pretty good. Anything you actually order is expensive (think fruit juice across the road 3.5 ringgit, here 20 and so on). The themed buffets are good, but again pricey. Fine...More

Big restaurant offering al la carte or buffet. Great service with delicious food. Can get quite busy so not for an intimate, quiet night. We had seafood pasta and a Penang spicy noodle dish. Both were very tasty. Would recommend this restaurant.

Enjoyed the Weekend Seafood Buffet at Rasa Sayang on 24th June 2017. Wonderful spread of sashimi, lobsters, prawns, crabs, yabbies and much more!! Well done to all the team at Spice Market Cafe!!

Only dined here once during our stay, that was enough. Not the cheapest at 169MR for an international buffet (Au$55). The name international buffet is out of place because it was mainly local cuisine - Indian, Chinese and Malaysian. No steaks, no chips, no other...More

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
