Cafe Ilang Ilang has extensive choices for food from Chinese to Indian. One of my favorite choices was its Spicy Crabs. Really sweet and spicy. Its tempura was also fresh and crispy. They also got wide arrays of desserts from fruits, ice creams and pastries....More

1. Services were great. 2. Food is so so, but the grilled Prawn is a must. Peking Duck wrap should have more duck meat, instead a tinny 1 slide. 3. Atmosphere is great, very nice decorated.

Cafe Ilang Ilang buffet is one of the best buffets in town with its wide array of food selection. Best is that they refill the food often even with the high ticket food items like lobster, scallops, etc. Guaranteed, you’ll get your moneys worth!👍🏻
