The Five Best Luxury Buffets in the World
When regular buffet dining isn’t enough, you need to up your buffet game and explore the world’s finest luxury buffet restaurants.
Here are the top 5 most luxurious buffet restaurants in the world, according to the esteemed, moderately-paid writers (haha) at BuffetMap. Given we’re the largest buffet restaurant website in the world with over 3,700 buffets listed (and counting), we should know!
1. Caesars Palace Bacchanal Buffet in Las Vegas
What would a luxury buffet list be without a buffet from Las Vegas – the world capital of buffets?
Billed as the largest buffet in Las Vegas, the Bacchanal Buffet in the Caesars Palace casino sprawls a whopping 25,000 feet.
It features 9 different kitchens and 15 daily chef’s specials, with a range of dishes and tastes that come from all over the world.
The word Bacchanal comes from the Bacchanalia, which were privately funded and very popular festivals of wine and food (and free-for-all-sex, reportedly) held during Roman times.
Bacchanalia itself comes from Bacchus, the god of wine and intoxication, no less.
So you can expect to see some Roman themes in some of the food (Roman pizza, anyone?), and other great dishes and luxury food options, such as rolling dim sum carts.
Prices start at $65 USD per head.
Of course, Las Vegas being the uncrowned buffet capital of the world, there are lots more amazing buffets in Las Vegas to choose from.
2. Mezza9 Buffet @ Grand Hyatt in Singapore
At $288 Singapore dollars, the Sunday champagne buffet at Mezza9 might be one of the most expensive buffets in the world.
However, it does include free flowing champagne and beer, wine, mojitos and more, so if a liquid lunch is your thing then this is the place to be.
The food selection is on point, with 9 different dining experiences at the restaurant which is located on the mezzanine level of the Grand Hyatt.
The options include: the grill, sushi, yakitori, steam basket, gourmet boutique shop, deli, patisserie, wine cellar and the bar.
There also several live cooking stations so you can watch the cooks in action.
3. Kaleidoscope Buffet Restaurant in Dubai
Kaleidoscope Buffet in Dubai is renowned for being the largest and most expansive buffet dining experience in Dubai.
Featuring a massive range of international food options, including Indian, Chinese, Seafood and Middle Eastern dishes, the Kaleidoscope buffet will tantalise all of your tastes in the one sitting.
Situated in the Atlantis The Palm resort at the top of Palm Island, the famed man-made island in Dubai, Kaleidoscope is a luxury buffet without being too over the top.
Prices start at 185 AED per person.
4. The Verandah Buffet in Hong Kong
This might be the oldest buffet on our list, having been around since 1933, but it is extremely stylish and has an amazing array of food.
And while some might consider Jumbo Kingdom, the largest floating restaurant in the world, as worthy of a spot on this list, Verandah is much more luxurious with its impressive decor and food.
The Verandah buffet restaurant is part of the Peninsula Hotel located Tsim Tsa Shui in the southern part of Kowloon, and has fantastic harbour views.
Buffet is served during breakfast, lunch and dinner and the food ranges from freshly made pasta to Sri Lankan curry to sushi and dim sum.
In bustling Hong Kong, you’ll find that many buffet restaurants are busy and thronging with people. The Verandah somehow eludes this with its stylish decor and upmarket clientele.
Prices start at $608 Hong Kong dollars.
5. Epicurean, Sydney
Rarely do you see all you can eat lobster in a buffet. But at the Epicurean in Sydney, Australia, that is just one of the delightful dishes you get.
Located in the Crown casino, the Epicurean is the height of buffet luxury in Australia, edging out Kitchens on Kent in Sydney due to its luxury setting and incredible food on offer that includes aforementioned lobster, dumplings, dessert and more.
Price per head can be as high as $158 on weekends, but if you’re in the mood for a splurge, consider skipping breakfast and lunch on the day of the buffet then take the viewpoint that you’ve just cut your per meal price down to $50.
That is one way to look at it!
However you do it, if you get the chance make sure you visit the Epicurean to discover the gourmet range of buffet food on offer, and try not to trip over your taste buds while you do it.
And if you can’t make it, check out the best buffets in Sydney that might just do the trick also.
