Was here a few months back and it was pretty good. Nice selection of appetisers, mains and desserts. Was surprised to come back here this month and be given a set amount of appetisers at the table and dessert later at the table as well....They offered to give us more helpings of the same but the range was quite limited. The staff were pleasant, but seemed a bit overwhelmed and even cleared up our table when we were getting more food at the buffet? Overall a bit disappointing for such a spectacular hotel and for the price, which is among the more expensive buffets in Brunei.More

This is probably the bets restaurant on offer at the Emire hotel. They do a wide-ranging pan-asian buffet every evening and at weekends they offer a buffet lunch with a slightly smaller range and the equivalent of a Sunday roast included. It's about $50 BND...including service for the evening option - more if you add some mocktails/juices, etc.. I probably ate there 5 or 6 times in my 3 months living in the hotel.More

We only stayed at the hotel for one night and were attracted to the restaurant setting. Glad we went, it was 52 each for the buffet which was one of the best quality we had ever had. Fresh salads, the right amount of hot dishes...and a grill station with both fish and meats. Desserts were also good although it did seem to take a while to fill up. When we arrived at the dessert section almost everything had gone and it took a while before the next lot of desserts arrived. Sat outside on the terrace in a beautiful candle lit setting. Staff were very attentive.More

思っていたよりも、カジュアルなレストランでした。シーフードだけでなく、マレー料理、ブルネイ料理のアンブーヤもありました。 アンブーヤは、意外と提供しているお店が少ないので、ここで食べる事が出来て良かったです。 シーフードBBQも、新鮮なものばかりで良かったです。 It is a casual restaurant than I expected. In addition to seafood, there were also Malay dishes and Ambuya of Brunei cooking. Ambuya is surprisingly few restaurants offering it, so it was good that I could eat here. Seafood BBQ was just...fresh, so it was good.More

The service is immaculate here. Always several chefs cooking to order and nice variation of western and asian dishes. For me who dont eat gluten and meat, there was still a lot I could eat. Would eat here again and can highly recommend it.

I proposed to my girlfriend in the pavilion. They had set it up with candles and rose petals. It was a very romantic ambience. The staff were great. Food was decent. Shame we couldn’t pop some champagne to celebrate!!

They offer any style of meat, vegetables, deserts. You can sit outside and enjoy a great ocean view with beautiful sunset's.

The facilities are great and it is located in a great hotel. The staff is friendly and the food is decent. 4 stars only because the selection, although good , underwhelms considering it's caliber. There is only 1 carving station (lamb) and although good, I've...had better..More

Very friendly staff. Located to the left of the main pool area. Brunch runs from 11-3 every Sunday. Sometime closed when dignitaries are in town. Can get busy some weekend. They accept reservations. Suggest you arrive at 11:00 when all the food is prepared. Selection...is awesome. Work stations are set up to make omelettes and noodles. They serve dim sum at the table. There is a rotation on some stations weekly so it's not always the same food. If you are looking for a bit fancier Brunch then definitely recommend.More

Nice eatery and nice setting as it's at the Empire Hotel and near the beach, especially cosy and romantic outside seating. Was there for business though and glad the bill was taken care off as it's a very pricey place! Nice enough selection of dishes...but not as extensive or as much volume as you'd expect for the money you'd have to fork out to eat there. Seafood was fresh for the most part but has been hit and miss in the past. Service was okay, but maybe not as you'd really expect from a so-called 6-star hotel.More

I'm not sure what their policy is on kids (and I suspect that it depends on their ages as well). If you had 9 adults and 4 kids at half-price for their evening pan-asian buffet that would set you back around B$600 including... More
