Our first day in the breakfast buffet at The Place inside Cordis Hotel went well. However, on the next morning, I had to wake up very early for the buffet breakfast since we have booked a day tour. I went straight to the chicken noodle station since it was a cold morning and I needed a hot soup. There was... More

Good selection of food items but the service could do with a bit more smile and anticipation. Service staff at the restaurant was not as warm as compared to their colleagues in other departments. Generally, they looked stern and not as attentive. There were many occasions where the plates were stacked high before someone noticed them. Apart from the services,... More

Haven't been Cordis Hotel for buffet for a long time, and the reason to return is her themed buffet - The Britannia. Traditional dishes such as Yorkshire pudding, fish & chips, etc are on a rotation basis during dinner buffet. The Place is decorated with England landmarks, eg. red telephone booth, London Eye, black taxi and soldiers. Focusing on their... More

We were staying at the Cordis Hotel and chose to have breakfast in The Place instead of the club room available to us and we enjoyed the experience. It was busy - very busy - but there was enough space and the buffet offered a wide range of ethnic and national cuisine choices so we were able to enjoy the... More

Nice food, quick refill, service also good. Of course, good location is one of the important consideration. Overall, we had a nice and happy dinner at that night. P.s actually, that night was my family member birthday celebration, if can provide a little birthday with candles, that will be perfect!!

We had buffet breakfast at The Place each morning we stayed at the Cordis Hotel. Great choices from both East & West. There are chefs who cook your noodle and eggs on the spot. The chefs are very friendly, the waiters are extremely impersonal

Mong Kok
It’s one of the highest density districts in the world, so come to Mong Kok prepared for action. Home to every market, restaurant and shopping arcade imaginable, Mong Kok is the one-stop shop to satisfy all your shopping needs. Dust off your finest negotiation skills and dive into the bartering frenzy.

One reliable rule of thumb: the smaller the place, the better the food.
