Flavors, one of my preferred choices of restaurant for buffet dinner, is located at Renaissance Ratchaprasong Hotel in Chidlom. If you go there on Friday or Saturday evening, you will see a busy scene of diners holding their plates while walking from one counter to another to get food. The decor of Flavors is elegant and modern, which enhances a comfortable dining environment for diners. Each food counter is attended to by a chef, who humbly serves diners the food they want. Arrangement of the food is appealing, which successfully boosts diners’ appetite.
The buffet dinner at Flavors features quite a lot of must-try dishes. The seafood counter provides fresh oysters, mussels, Alaska crabs and prawns. Oysters are one of the most popular seafood at this counter. Their oysters are fresh enough to just slurp each piece of oyster with fresh lime juice. If you prefer to eat seafood hot, there is also a grill counter for grilling seafood and meat. All grilled food is ordered to make. All you need to do is to choose what you like and present your table tag to the chef. Then your perfectly grilled seafood will be served to your dining table.
There is also a counter for Thai food. Here at Flavors, you can try making your own somtam. It may help to add some fun to your buffet experience. Many popular Thai dishes, such as green curry, laab moo and tom yam kung, are also available for diners. Despite spicy Thai food, there is an Indian cuisine counter serving popular Indian dishes such as Tandoori chicken, naan bread and various kinds of Indian curry.
Apart from the above, there is a large table of cold cuts, assorted cheese and bread. There are various kinds of bread available for diners to eat with cheese. However, I am not very impressed with the parma ham, which is sliced a bit too thick and dry. I still prefer a hearty slice of parma ham to pair with the sweet melon.
There is a live pasta cooking counter, chefs always stand-by at the counter to cook the kind of pasta you like.
My most favourite counter is the steak counter where pan-seared foie gras, steak and lamb chop are available. What you shouldn’t miss is the pan-seared foie gras. It is aromatic with a crispy crust and creamy foie gras inside.
Their tempting dessert counter will perfectly end your buffet dinner experience with joy and delight! I love their dessert counter a lot because of the extensive choices. Apart from traditional Thai desserts such as sticky rice with mangoes, appealing desserts such as cakes, ice-cream, brulee are beautifully arrayed on the counter. Fresh fruits of seasonal produce are also available to suit different diners’ appetite.
If you are a buffet lover, you may wish to experience Flavors. Despite buffet dinner, there are also buffet breakfast, buffet lunch, and of course, Sunday Brunch!
