Genting Highlands: Buffet Dinner at Coffee Terrace

We reached the bus terminal in Genting Highlands at 3:30pm. The moment I alight from the coach, I felt the cold wind whip at my hair. So, I quickly took our boy’s jacket from the bag and put it on to keep him warm. Then, we took a slow walk to our hotel lobby.

Half an hour later, we arrived at our hotel room. It was so spacious and our boy was simply fascinated. Instead of taking his afternoon nap, he was literally running and jumping around in the room. We unpacked our luggage, took a shower and ready to go out for an early dinner.

We’ve been so hungry because we had our lunch in a rush when the coach stopped at Yong Peng. We planned to try out the buffet dinner at Coffee Terrace in Genting Hotel. It was highly recommended by V’s colleagues. The buffet dinner starts at 5pm, and the time was just right!

Genting Hotel is about 10 to 15 minutes walk from our hotel through a covered walkway. Little Edison fell asleep on his stroller while we were walking to Coffee Terrace. So, we had some quiet moments to enjoy our dinner before he woke up an hour later.

Coffee Terrace is one of the most popular dining options in Genting, serving a special mix of local as well as international delicacies. It has a massive seating capacity, nice ambience and a team of friendly staffs that greeted us with a smile the moment we stepped in.

Its menu is truly extensive, with a wide variety of delicacies that are categorized into six specialties namely:

  • Local Favourites – char kway teow, assam laksa, curry, Ipoh hor fun, ice kacang, Hainanese chicken rice, etc.
  • Nyonya – Nyonya fish head curry, soup, spice chicken, mango kerabu, etc
  • Japanese – Salmon sashimi, sushi, miso, chicken teriyaki, tempura, fresh Korean oysters, etc.
  • Western – grilled steak, salmon, pasta, soup, buttered vegetables, salad etc.
  • Chinese – la mien, dim sum, stir-fry vegetables with mushroom, soup, dumplings, etc
  • Western Asian – this is more like Indian food to me – chicken tandoori, biryani rice, papadum, roti prata etc.

The Japanese Kitchen is our favourite!

Star Dish of the Day – fresh Korean oysters!

There is also a wide variety of cakes, pastries, ice-cream and fruits. For just RM71 per pax (after tax), I find that it’s really value for money. Definitely one of the best buffets I’ve ever had too!

A variety of pastries…

and cakes too…

      Hi Stevie,
      Quite cold at night, about 18 deg C. Esp on Friday night after a heavy rain in the afternoon. So shiok to sleep. All of us felt so reluctant to wake up in the morning. Haha!
