The Riverside Terrace Buffet at Mandarin Oriental Bangkok continues to be a mainstay on many travel itineraries thanks to an incredible spread of delicacies, a refined riverside ambiance and the attention to detail that can make a very good meal a truly great one.
The setting, directly next to the Chao Phraya River, is the first thing everyone notices: fairy lights sparkle in the grand old trees, a gentle acoustic duo serenade from afar while various boats sail by, adding a vibrancy to the otherwise genteel affair of al fresco dining in one of Bangkok’s very finest hotels.
The spread of delicacies is very impressive with something for pretty much everyone. Even people who shy away from buffets due to the messy bowls of food and temptation to overeat will find something to love at Mandarin Oriental’s Riverside Terrace Buffet.

Lebanese, Indian, Thai, Seafood, Japanese Sushi – the choice is enough to satisfy the biggest glutton, yet it is all prepared to exacting standards. Fresh seafood is grilled a la minute, with rock lobster and river prawns highly popular. Each area has a dedicated kitchen team meaning this is more in tune with fine dining than a mass buffet.
The roast meats section is most people’s choice for main, with roast prime rib beef, lamb and beef cheek in red wine jus. The meat is cooked to perfection and is deliciously tender. This is complemented by a selection of condiments including Dijon mustard and mint sauce. Don’t miss the dessert station which has a full range of western patisseries, homemade sorbet, exotic fruits and Thai desserts – form the classics (mango sticky rice is simply a must), to the lesser known traditional desserts.
The thing that sets this Bangkok riverside buffet above any other is the fact that every offering is carefully prepared and expertly presented. This meticulous focus on the small details is what has come to define the Mandarin Oriental brand and what makes this meal a sure-fire winner for an evening of over-indulgence on the river.
There is a smart casual dress code at Mandarin Oriental’s Riverside Terrace Buffet, which means no sportswear or sandals.
