Looking for great breakfast/lunch buffets

Recommended Posts

I'm going to be in CM the 1st week of August so I'm looking for great breakfast and lunch buffet priced under 350B. Does the Grandview lunch buffet at 199B the same price it was over 4 years ago when I last ate there offer similar variety or have they reduce the choices? Auf der Au Garden may be good but they have increased their price from 140B in April to 220B in June. Quite a jump. I hope they are worth it. Are there any great Indian restaurant lunch buffets as well? Thanks for any of the suggestions.

given up buffets apart from Sizzler salad buffet as the others are bad for my weight!

Empress used to be good so long as not invaded by Chinese hordes, similarly Siripanna which was 189bht weekdays lunch.

CMoldie, thanks for the suggestions. Yes, I realize that opinions especially about food can vary greatly from person to person. The "rate increase" came from an article from City Life that they moved June 11th and the price was 220B for breakfast. The dinner buffet price did not change which I thought was strange.

The Grandview has fallen out of favor and is not very good anymore IMO. I would not go there if I were you. Auf der Au is 140 THB - I was there 3 times in the last 2 weeks. No change in price. Food is fresh and the owners are very kind. As stated above, the Lotus Pang Suan Kaew is quite good for lunch. The advertised price is 299 but they have 149 Baht promos often or you can search for 50% discount coupons. My wife gets them all the time.

elektrified, Thanks for the info. I remember your id over the many years. Glad you are still in CM and "alive". Too bad about GV. When I lived here, we used to go once every 2 weeks. I'll be in town for only 6 days so can you share where can I find the 50% promo for Lotus? As I previously mentioned the wrong price for Auf der Au was in City Life. When we go there i'll mention the wrong price to the owner.

Had the buffet lunch today at the Sripanna for the first time and pretty good it was. All the usual Thai dishes / couple of soups / som tam station / pizza & spaghetti station / Japanese station / BBQ chicken / pork / shrimp / fish each on skewers plus sliced beef and the stand out item I wasn't expecting to see NZ lamb chops. Small selection of deserts /fruits / half a dozen ice creams / tea / coffee / soft drinks. Live music from couple of lads on acoustic guitar which was fine. All for 289 baht all up.

 

The lamb chops were excellent and well worth the cost of admission alone although I only managed 3. The lamb / beef and BBQ options (possibly others also) were only put out in minimal quantity and topped up as need be unlike other places that tend to dump enough food for a couple of hours. One other major plus was the absence of any tour groups and to be honest I thought the atmosphere was a touch sedate but hardly a complaint. Another plus was the room is split into fan and air sections so take your pick.

 

Buffet starts at 1130 and when we left at 1300 it was about empty so if you plan a visit get there towards opening time. 

 

Enjoyed it.

Based on 14 years of trial and mostly error, the best I have found is still the Meridien.  Selection, quality, fresh baked goods, and great coffee.  But although pricey, it within YOUR stated budget.

I'll ask her when she is back in a couple of days but most likely through Line or FB groups.
