Best buffet in Hong Kong? Best buffet in the world? Harbourside is a restaurant in the InterContinental Hong Kong hotel that specializes in Buffets for lunch, dinner, and Sunday Brunch. They serve Asian, American, and other international dishes. Our last visit was in the summer of 2011 for Sunday brunch.

This InterContinental Hong Kong buffet is located right on Hong Kong Harbour’s edge, giving the room awesome views. We visited during their elaborate dinner buffet. They used to have a 1 month back log for reservations, and were full the Sunday we went. Sunday brunch adds free flowing Moet Champagne, juice, or soft drinks. This hotel also has a Nobu, Yan Toh Heen, and an Alain Ducasse restaurant.

Our top buffet: Ritz Carlton Singapore Sunday Brunch

Decor, Vibe - Harbourside Buffet is hosted in an elegant room with good harbor views from every table. Lots of bigger parties, locals, tourists, and hotel guests were dining. The view during dinner is especially spectacular.

All you can eat Souffle

Harbourside Buffet’s best part! A great dessert buffet, which features two chocolate fountains, homemade desserts, fresh fruit, many cakes, cookies, sago, Steam Egg custard, Haagen Dazs ice cream sundae station with many mix ins, smoothies, several Chinese desserts, macaroons, marshmellows as well as made-to-order souffles, crepes, and waffles.

Harbourside Buffet was an elaborate buffet, outclassing even the top Ritz Carlton Sunday Brunch buffet in Half Moon Bay, California and Wynn Buffet, and at a lower price than the Ritz. The best buffet by a small margin remains Conrad Nicolini’s Sunday Brunch Buffet, Hong Kong. This buffet is open daily though.

Harbourside Buffet had fair service, with some plate clearing and drink refills occurring only when we asked. They need to add more service people. Sunday brunch cost HK$ 738 with Champagne. The dinner buffet cost HK$588 (HK$7.7 to US$1). Children under 12 are HK$388. Be sure to stay for the Harbor light show at 8pm.
