BBQ Seafood Buffet at G Hotel

ATTENTION! Due to many complaints received in my blog’s comments on G Hotel’s BBQ Seafood Dinner, please be informed no longer recommends this. From my experience it was fine but many people complained about the food quality, variety and some even complained of discomfort after that. So all G Hotel BBQ Seafood related posts will serve only as a reference for the food you will find there. I regret any bad experiences you’ve had if you went for the buffet after viewing my blog. Thank you.

It’s BBQ Seafood buffet every Friday and Saturday at G Hotel’s G Cafe. Just for your information, G Hotel is the latest hotel to open along Gurney Drive. Even the wall’s paint smell is still lingering in the air. It is nicely situated beside Gurney Plaza and I think there’s work on building a bridge connecting these 2 buildings. It’s nice to know Chilli’s has opened a restaurant on G Hotel’s ground floor. I might be heading there for my birthday hehe.

The hotel’s logo is simple.. yet elegant.

This is the restaurant serving the buffet, you will find it at the end of the hotel. The BBQ Seafood buffet starts at 6.30pm and ends at 10pm (kinda early in my opinion)


This post will be all about the buffet’s dessert first, too many photos lor :P Being smart, we arrived early so all the cakes were still untouched.


Phew, that’s a lot! One of my colleague who’s a frequent buffet diner actually recommended me to go for Mutiara Beach Resort or Gurney Hotel for good buffets. But since Mutiara is closed for renovation and BBQ Seafood buffet seemed much more interesting than International Buffet at Gurney Hotel, we opted for G Hotel. I will blog about the seafood in the next post.. so stay tuned (as if anyone is actually interested reading it lol)

  1. ooOOoo.. all the desserts!how scrumptious looking. I must tell my Penang frens about this (providing they dunno about this place =D). and yea, cant wait for the seafood post =)

  2. The deserts are so tempting! Your photography skill is “ichiban” ! Can’t wait for those seafood that you have mentioned :)

  3. hey… so what’s the cost for every type of buffet listed above? I had tried the one in Golden Sands, they kinda have eth you mentioned in all 3 posts, but it costs rm80 . Lemme know the pricing, i am interested to try out :P

  4. Hey guys, sorry for not posting about the price earlier. I actually wanted to finish posting the photos first only reveal the price.

    The BBQ Seafood Buffet held every Friday and Saturday costs RM68 per pax. After tax, it would be RM78.20

    Enjoy your buffets!

  5. I had treid the buffet on Friday. First, there’s not much choice. The sea food is not fresh…at all.
    The BBQ,most of them are too salty n not fresh too. One more thing is, why we pay extra to eat ‘chicken rice’, ‘satay’ n ‘Char Koey Teow’ at ghotel’s BBQ n Saefood buffet?
    The desserts look nice, but most of the desserts are too sweet! The ice-cream taste like the cheap one…
    How i wish I’ve never been there…
    The evergreen Seafood buffet is much better! The desserts taste very good also.

    The price is also 60something. Must try!

  6. Yammy yammy – Sad to know your buffet turned out to be a disappointment. When I went, there weren’t any chicken rice, satay or char koay teow available. I only knew the fruit drinks are charged extra on top of the bill.

    You mentioned Evergreen, is it Evergreen Laurel Hotel? Is it purely seafood only? Thanks for the recommendation, I will try it out one day :)

  7. all the foods and the desserts looks soo nice and delicious! is this because of your ‘ichiban’ photography skill or the foods really good taste? you have so good comment about the buffet but Yammy yammy so disappointed!NVM, after i try it, then i let u guys know!

  8. I went for the BBQ seafood buffet with a group of friends last Friday, and I say it is NOT worth the price at all! G-Hotel lobby and the cafe certainly look very nice and modern but we go for the food mah, right? First of all, there were so few varieties! What you see in the photos are all that are available – seriously!! And, the seafood is NOT fresh at all (I spent the whole night later visiting the toilet – talk about regret!). But the most annoying thing was that the BBQ seafood is served by their staff – ONE piece per request! Seriously! Like one tiny piece of sotong when you ask for it. If you ask again, you get another ONE tiny piece!! Aiyo what lah! Like this call buffet???

    I will never go there again. Waste of time and money!! To me the best buffet in town is still the Sunday brunch at good old Golden Sands Hotel!

  9. After looking for the inviting photos, we decided to try up the buffet last Friday

    For the RM68 , our comments are as follow…
    1. How can they call this Buffet where you are given ONLY 1 miserable SMALL pcs BBQ Sotong each time you go for it (unless you ask for additional),
    2. The seafood are not very fresh, so so only,
    3. The dessert looks good on the photo, but taste so so only.
    4. Not much of food variety.
    5. The worst is, water is only served upon request, this is unacceptable at all
    Overall, it just not worth RM68 !! Not of us will go again, with the Total bill of RM925 (11 pax), we can go for EXCELLENT China Cost Dinner man.

  10. I have included ur blog link in my recent post on this hotel. I read it in one of my forwarded mail. sorry for using ur photos without ur permission…:p, hope u don’t mind.

  11. Horibble, not worth with the charge as RM128++.

    My husband and me were having Christmas BBQ Seafood buffer on Christmas Eve day. We found the buffer is not worth, so call BBQ seafood is only consist of King prawn and Salmon only. Cake varieties is limited, repeated items were displays to mislead people.
    Besides this, my husband was feel discomfort after taking the food and I am suffer stomach discomfort after the dinner.
    We really feed sad on making bad decision chosing G-hotel as our choice on Christmas Eve night.

  12. Angie, sorry if you went there after reading my blog. I have put up a strong message in each of my G Hotel related posts to inform the readers about the bad experiences you have had. I hope you get well soon!

  13. Seriously if I never read the comments, the post was very appealing. It doesn’t show the lack of variety, the food looks good (and fresh), but I guess one can’t tell until you’ve actually been there. Though, the bad experiences – just a few cases ?
