The Wembley, A St Giles Hotel is known for offering value for money buffets at affordable prices. Recently, we checked out one of their theme buffet dinners – Japanese & Western Buffet (available every Thursday) which is undoubtedly one of their more popular themes among diners.
It’s not hard to see why when the buffet line up includes this…
An array of fresh Seafood on Ice
Wembley Cafe interior, located at Level 2 of The Wembley
True to their Japanese theme, a generous variety of sashimi and sushi is available.
Butter Fish Sashimi (my favourite! I was so happy to see this!!)
Colorful Nigiri & Rolled sushi
Seafood on Ice includes snow crab leg, half shell oysters, mussels, scallop, flower crab and tiger prawns
Other Western appetizers include Make your Own Salad Bar with dressing & condiments, Smoked Duck, Potato Salad & Crabstick salad, as well as Cheese Platter.
Japanese Potato Salad
Miso Soup with Salmon Head & Salmon Belly
Kimchi Soup with Chicken
Heading on to the mains, I found that the dishes were thoughtfully presented and was delighted with most, especially the Saba mackerel, miso honey lamb ribs, teriyaki chicken and roasted tenderloin. The stuffed squid was also an interesting dish to try.
