Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong Clipper Lounge Buffet

Gluttony in Hong Kong. We are lovers of high end buffets. Hong Kong is one of the top spots for pure gluttony with high end food options for Sunday Brunch. (Prime rib, Many raw seafood options, sushi/sashimi, Foie Gras and more) Past visits have seen us visit other top hotel buffets. We have methodically tried to dine at all the heavy hitters.

  • In 2020 we tried the Sunday Brunch at the Mandarin Oriental.

Our current #1 world buffet is the Ritz Carlton Singapore Colony Buffet.
In Hong Kong, our top buffet is the Conrad Sunday brunch.

Verdict

The Clipper lounge was a solid high end buffet. The selection was not a vast as the nearby Conrad buffet. This compact buffet still packed a punch with some solid items.
