First Impression

The Christmas Eve Buffet is priced at RM 90++ Per Pax and it will be at The Square Restaurant. In our food tasting session, my favorite dish happens to be the Oxtail Irish Stew (photo below) – nicely cooked meat, soft to each bite yet succulent and tasty. The turkey was good too, along with some lamb cuts. The lasagna was average at best, don’t expect something Italiano with it.

I can’t speak for the actual buffet itself as the food served were only the highlights, which also explains why there’s no photo of the buffet counter as would like to avoid having a picture that doesn’t represent the actual. Nevertheless the experience from the highlights alone were satisfactory and I think the buffet session is worth your consideration.

One thing I must highlight though, Novotel KLCC is not near KLCC. It’s actually next to Pavilion. So if you’re heading there, please park at Pavilion instead of KLCC unless you intend to have a rather long walk. 🙂

Here are other photos from the session.
