Holiday Inn is a 4 stars hotel. For that, i have to judge it based on 4 stars standards. That said, i saw a plaque near the front desk that says it's 5 star.
anyway, so let's stay with 4 stars. As far as 4 star hotel buffets go, it's the WORST i have seen.
1.) sushi... the sushi was okay. nothing special. but when sushis from cheaper buffets are better than theirs, I think that's a big problem.
2.) salad station.. they have a few sad looking salad plates in that section. the remeeding salad was a penne salad they had. But anyone can make a macaroni salad.
3.) fresh cooked section. they had a burger bar, a grill, and a noodle soup section. the best section of all was the soup section. Never have i gone to a buffet restaurant and said, "try their soup section, it's the best!" or maybe i was so disappointed in everything else that i decided to give the soup section a try?
the grill section.. they had barbecue, some chicken wings, and some fish slices and some squid. i'm sorry, everything that came out of it was bad. the chicken wings were par boiled, the fish was so dry, the barbecue (local version of bbq) was dry and tasteless, the squid... was just plain rubbery.
they had baby back ribs, that was good. but they did not clean out the tough parts first before cooking.
Burger bar... it was alright. :). I could say more bad things about it, but i'll give it a pass.
Btw, they serve humus, but no pita bread in sight.
Holiday Inn is an international brand with international standards. Hopefully, they can read this criticism, and take it as a reason to improve upon their quality. However, i have read bad reviews from last year and nothing seems to have been improved.
As far as 4 star hotels buffet go, this is the worst i have had and this falls below 4 stars standards. Actually, they have the bones of a 4 star buffet, but they just need to better prepare their food.
I am very sorry for such a negative review given.
the staff was great. :) no complaints!
