We recently visited Hong Kong and dined on excellent Cantonese Chinese food and more. Hong Kong is a modern city like New York, that is progressive, packed with energy, and filled with top-notch restaurants.

Other Buffets: Conrad Nicolini’s Sunday Brunch Buffet, Harbourside Buffet,, JW Marriott Hong Kong, Tiffen Buffet Grand Hyatt Hong Kong.

Other Hong Kong Reviews:  Lung King HeenChuen Kee Seafood,Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao, Fook Lam Moon, Lei Garden, Ming Court, Sai Kung Seafood Market, Sun Tung Lok, Yung Kee.

JW Marriott Hong Kong Sunday Champagne Brunch at The Lounge was next on our list of high-end buffets. We are suckers for lavish spreads of high-end food in addition to our mainstays of regular fine dining! We have found that Hong Kong is filled with buffets that simply out to Las Vegas. In 2010, we dined at Conrad’s Sunday brunch next door, which proved to be Awesome.

This Sunday brunch cost about US$80 with unlimited Moët Chandon champagne or Tyrrell, Campagnola Bardolino wines. You can save a little by opting out of the alcoholic beverages and sticking with tea, coffee, and juices.

 

Chinese name: 香港萬豪酒店大堂酒廊

Summary – Awesome buffet
Insider Tip – Make Reservations in Advance

Cuisine – Western Food
Location – Hong Kong, China

Decor, Vibe – JW Marriott Hong Kong The Lounge is situated on the open atrium, Lobby level and a spacious locale with a view of the nearby high-rises. This brunch extends upstairs into their wine lounge area. This area also serves as their bar lounge (just like the Grand Hyatt’s buffet), resulting in many sofa like chairs, not particularly amenable for dining, but good for relaxing to classical music when you achieve a food coma.

Menu Highlights:

Several dishes including baked tomatoes, and egg noodles were circulated directly to diners.

Service – JW Marriott Hong Kong Sunday Champagne Brunch had reasonable service, but not enough servers to cover entire area effectively. It sometimes took a while to get plates changed, refills, or beverages ordered.

Value – This is a fairly expensive Sunday brunch buffet, but they did feature a wide variety of high-quality and exotic food.

Alternatives – Nearby restaurants include Conrad awesome Sunday brunch at Nicolini’s. Next on our Sunday brunch buffet list: Spoon, Mandarin Grill, Zuma, or 5th Floor Fusion.

Verdict – JW Marriott Hong Kong The Lounge Sunday Brunch Buffet proved to be a satisfying Sunday brunch, nearly on par with their neighbor Conrad. Dessert, shellfish, and appetizer (especially the Iberico ham) selection was excellent, although sushi and pasta options were a bit weak. Having the option to both champagne and wine, proved decadent! We’re glad most people didn’t drive. Locals were seen browsing the newspaper, even playing video games while relaxing. Indulge in an indulgent, leisurely Sunday brunch, the next time you’re in Hong Kong.
Children cost HK $330.
