I have always enjoyed dining at novotel buffet. ☺️ Theres adequate food selection and the dishes are superb!
Staff service is great. there is a wide range of food but nothing extra ordinary..Indian section is great though..Nonetheless good food and yummy desserts.
I appreciate the accommodation given to me as an accor member I was given an exclusive area at no extra cost. Thank you food exchange for that privilege
Staff are veey friendly and always provide good service.
*Indian Food especially the Naan Bread was the best! Also loved their Caesar Salad All the rest were meh food and were not served fresh. Roast Chicken was too dry and salty, even the roast loin pork (very obvious it was out on display for a long long time -- hints of recycled food and sauces for the roast beef too salty. Distracting flies on our table -- had to ask for candles twice to help shoo the files away. the Biko tasted weird -- it was not soft like Malagkit as grains were thorny and hard (again hints of use of recycled ordinary rice instead of malagkit rice), Lack of sauce viand options. seafood rice and fried crab rice and steamed rice. But loved the laksa as well. Mostly hit and miss. Ice Cream served was already watery/liquidy (inconsistent temperature with the vanilla flavor vs. the watery/tunaw version of the coffee latte). Variety of viands/dishes were deeply lacking.
Food is not so great. I hope you can improve choices and taste. Ambiance and atmosphere is good.
my booking went well, we were so welcome, everyone seems to care for a memorable experience with great choices of food & friendly staff
Great Work and hospitality
Good quality service :)
Vegetable choices is very limited. The food in the pots are good, but very inconvenient to use, as the covers are to heavy to lift, thus discouraging me to return. The roast beef in the carving station lacks flavor. For me, It is actually the worst food choice in the entire selection. Cheese choices are also very few, and placed in an area that you will not be able to see it clearly. The layout may be corrected further for a more pleasurable experience.
I wish to commend the staff for being courteous and accomodating. Though I wish they had bigger name tags so that I can properly address them. Food was great and delicious especially the marinated fish. My family enjoyed the food selection. Thank you, Novotel!
Very accomodating personnels
Lunch buffet at novotel is highly recommended. Adequate and excellent food choices!
The dining floor area is a little bit too dark for me. Food was good. I was loomjng for dimsum though. Overall a good place to dine with family.
It was my 2nd time to dine here. The food was really superb, thanks a lot. Our Celebration was lit.

Thanks so much to all the staff of Food Exhange. I’m very pleased with all their services. I had an excellent experience dining in this restaurant. Love the selections of food and ambiance too. Cheers, Regina
Food was better the first time we went. The meats were very dry, perhaps the heating lamp was too strong or it was left over from the lunch buffet. We will not be coming back unless there is a big discount. Cold cuts and cheese were okay, but since it is exposed to cold air, it had freezer burn and was also very dry.
