The buffet serves a variety of food, however, the sushi was not very fresh. The drinks (2 juices) were lacking. For the price paid, I found the food subpar by Hong Kong standards.

Try and get your room rate to include the Buffet Breakfast each day otherwise it may be expensive. Lots of choice and good quality.

The iSquare has many shops, restaurants and cafes, as well as a cinema. On level 30 is the Eyebar. If you're wanting to have a drink (and don't mind paying around $20AUD) with a view then this is the place to head to. Magnificent views overlooking Victoria Harbour over to Hong Kong Island are seen from the outside bar.

The Square is on the 2nd floor of Novotel Nathan Road. It features a large dining room with an up-scale feel. We ordered off of the menu but the restaurant features an enormous buffet with all kinds of seafood that seems to be popular with locals as much as hotel guests. Everything we ordered was well prepared and tasty but... More

Tried the buffet breakfast during my stay. Food is good but spread is of average & nothing to shout about. Eggs station is cluttered together with the buffet line and people waiting for their eggs are crowding and causing obstruction to the line. Re-positioning of the egg stations could be looked into.

We had two dinners and one lunch here. The two for one buffet special was excellent. The buffet dinner was rather expensive, but the menu was good.

This place used to be one of the best dim-sum lunch places in HK, but this time we were shocked not to find this special menu there any longer. I am really at a loss to understand why they did it, but still the best part of our lunch were a couple of signature dim-sums still remaining on the menu...

Breakfast was too continental. I wish there were more Asian dishes -- more dim sum! The choices didn't vary much day-to-day. What i liked about this was that breakfast hours were from 6-11am, great for late risers!

Neighbourhood Profile
Jordan / Yau Ma Tei
The Jordan and Yau Ma Tei neighbourhood is where you will find some of the more authentic areas of Hong Kong. Not as glamourous or busy as its neighbours Mong Kok to the north or Tsim Sha Tsui to the south, Yau Ma Tei is often mistakenly overlooked by visitors on their trips to Hong Kong. Exploring parts of this area makes you feel like you’ve been transported back in time. A large part of the neighbourhood draws from the rich history of Temple Street, stretching from Jordan to Yau Ma Tei, where a mix of dai pai dongs (outdoor restaurants), market stalls, fortune tellers and old karaoke bars bring out the history and culture of the area. The neighbourhood is a showcase of diversity – different ethnicities, cultures, and a mix of old and new.
