We started off 2011 by celebrating the 2nd birthday of a child at Lemon Garden Cafe, Shangri-La Hotel.
Buurps being buurps – our focus is on the food, not whoever else that’s around the food.
Just in case any one doesn’t know yet, Shangri-La Hotel is situated along Jalan Sultan Ismail. Unfortunately there’s little signboard on where the hotel is so it’s easily missed. Lemon Garden is on the ground floor, just next to the lounge / pond area.
Let’s have a look at the cafe in further detail.
This is the Chinese food area….
The bar near the wall is where all the meat stuff are, center are the other items like cheese and pastry.
Japanese food …..
Fruits and Salad ….
Some unknown pizza-like substance …..
And whatever else that’s there.
Sorry, I’m not in the business of cataloging what’s available there. I think I also missed out the Indian food section.
Budget yourself at RM 100 per head and you’ll be fine, the rates vary depending on promotion.
While this place is well-known for its buffet, I thought the food was just average. I didn’t sample the Indian food as I wasn’t in the mood for spicy stuff. I tried the Chinese food, cod fish was great but fried rice was bland and the dim sum were horrible – I admit I’m pampered by dim sum from Hong Kee restaurant and Jin Xuan.
The Japanese food was great for the prawns, oysters and such but when it comes to sushi, it’s horrible. Just get yourself some sushi from Jusco, it tastes way better. I didn’t take much of the dessert and such but I did try their ice cream and I certainly think it could’ve been better, considering the crowd was pretty good and it’s Shangri-La Hotel!
What’s good there then? For me, I think the meat stuff are great – my vote for best available dish during my lunch there was the lamb leg and roast beef. They were delicious but I must say they’re not memorable.
If you’re looking for variety – this is the place, but from my experience – none of the dishes are memorable………..
