This is my first buffet post in almost 2 years and I am going to make it a quick one. Tatsu at Intercontinental Hotel is the place and the Japanese a la carte buffet costs RM118 for an adult. Crazy eh? I think this is the most expensive buffet I have ever had. Price is the only downside here as most of the food that really mattered such as sashimi, cod, unagi and tempura are good while the rest meet expectations.
5 types of sashimi (counts as 5 of the 88 dishes) here: butterfish, octopus, salmon, taro and yellowtail.
7 types of sushi (2pcs for each portion): butterfish, eel, salmon, ika, octopus, tuna and yellowtail.
Teriyaki Cod, delicious and a must order here. Best value too if you intend to eat for your money’s worth.
Teppanyaki Cod, also delicious but we liked the Teriyaki version a lot more.
Fried cheddar cheese
Fried ginkgo nuts
Smoked Wild Duck Breast
Unagi with Egg Sauce
Egg plant with bean paste
Grilled Pacific Saury with Salt
There are 88 dishes (we sampled 20+ only) to order from and you are limited to ordering a maximum of 5 dishes every time to prevent food waste. I don’t know about you but I am all for this rule. Too many times I have seen people piling up their plates at buffets just to leave them untouched at the end of the session. So, the two ultimate questions: Is the buffet worth forking out RM118 for? Will we return? The answers are “not really” and “highly unlikely”.
