Buffet lunch at Café G runs from 11:30 to 14:30, and dinner from 17:30 to 21:00 every day.
The spacious dining room on the ground floor of the Holiday Inn Bangkok is bright and modern, typified by the orange and yellow colour scheme, floor-to-ceiling windows and pine furnishings. Seating surrounds the central food stations with a few private booths for a more intimate setting.
Despite daily menu changes, the best value buffet in Bangkok at Cafe G consists of typical lunch dishes such as pastas, noodle soup, western and Thai salads, as well as a meat carving section, while Thai offerings at Cafe G are often well known classics such as green curry, som tam and chicken with cashew nuts.
Café G’s speciality lies within its meat carving section, particularly the succulent gammon ham and juicy marinated chicken. Expertly prepared, we highly recommend these two options if you are an unapologetic meat lover. We also love the Thai green-noodle soup, which is served piping hot with generous amounts of pork and fish balls, bean sprouts, and various greens.
Dessert is another highlight with some lesser-known traditional Thai dishes, such as glutinous rice in coconut milk or tapioca and red beans, sitting next to European cakes, tarts and two flavours of ice cream. For a taste of the exotic we love the ‘kanom sai sai’, a coconut Thai dessert with soft jelly-like coconut milk and shaven, crunchy coconut pieces steamed inside a banana leaf packet. The strawberry and vanilla ice cream is made in-house too, with chocolate chips, nuts and a selection of sauces as condiments.
While free flow of soft drinks, coffee and tea is available as thirst quenchers, Café G also offers additional promotions atop its already value-for-money lunch and dinner buffet. If you are craving a pint, you only need to pay 299 baht to enjoy free flow Singha draught beer throughout your already great value Bangkok buffet, while the more health-conscious diners can enjoy a glass of fresh fruit juice with a buy-one-get-one-free deal at 160 baht.
All in all, the cheap Bangkok buffet at Cafe G at the Holiday Inn offer unbeatable value in downtown Bangkok, and even though it lacks the delicacies of the more expensive hotel buffets, guests will still find plenty of dishes to tempt them up for seconds.
