We were invited to check out one of their dining spots, TEMPTations and experienced the festive buffet. On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, you can enjoy a festive dinner buffet for RM148nett per person inclusive of a non-alcoholic welcome drink. The highlights of the buffet include the perennial Whole Roasted Turkey with stuffing and all the trimmings, Roast Prime Beef Ribs, Roast Leg of Lamb and more.

The Turkey is done well here and I specially love the tasty stuffing and cranberry sauce.

The Roast Beef Ribs is quite amazing too, especially when you do for the medium rare parts, so tender and full of flavour. But the highlight would be that giblet sauce, full of umaminess and goes exceptionally well with the Yorkshire pudding.

Great selection of salads and appetizers, with that Salmon Egg Mayo on Endive being my favourite of the lot.

And of course, I have to mention the Gnocchi:

May not look like much, but the Gnocchis are soft as pillows and the creamy sauce tastes amazing. I had to help myself to several servings of this.

The Garlic prawns were quite enjoyable too.

Baked Salmon, even though it’s fully cooked it’s not too dry.

Moving on to the desserts, and I must say this is the first time I see a Croquembouche in flesh, after seeing it at one of the MasterChef Australia challenge years ago.
