“Nearly all the diners of the restaurant were surrounding a food counter. ‘What’s over there?’ I wondered. By the time, I could squeeze into the crowd, I found myself standing right in front of a seafood counter containing oysters, Alaska crabs, New Zealand mussels and rock lobsters. People around me were grabbing the oysters and Alaska crabs as if there would have no more oysters and Alaska crabs in the world tomorrow.”
“The slender lady sitting next to my dining tables have already finished their sixth plate of oysters. I couldn’t help gazing at her, feeling amazed! She had eaten around 50 pieces of oysters within 20 minutes. I wondered if this could be recorded in the Guinness Record of the year?”
This was what I saw and experienced when I tried the Seafood Republic Night at THE SQUARE of Novotel Bangkok Ploenchit Hotel.
We have reviewed several buffet promotions introduced by THE SQUARE at Novotel Bangkok Ploenchit. Thanks for the energetic, creative PR and F&B teams, their buffet promotions always mean to surprise foodies and diners in town. This time, their newly designed dinner buffet – Seafood Republic Night has delighted us once again, and we felt wonderful to witness a nearly full house of diners on the day of our visit.
Why do we think it is the best seafood dinner buffet in town?
(1) Super reasonable price
At THB 1,299++ / person, you can enjoy oysters, prawns, New Zealand mussels, rock lobsters and Alaska king crabs. If you want to have them grilled over the charcoal flame, the chef at the live kitchen will do it for you. Despite fresh seafood, fresh tuna and salmon sashimi and sushi of various kinds are beautifully arrayed to stop your craving for Japanese taste. To us, it is an irresistible price. You may question about the quality of the seafood. Let us tell you from our experience and summarize it in three words – fresh and tasty.
(2) The most reasonably-priced beer/wine buffet at THB 500 NET only.
You are right! It is THB 500 NET only. Imagine enjoying this alcohol buffet on a Friday or Saturday night from 1800 to 2200 hours with your friends and loved ones after work, it is undoubtedly a wise and wonderful choice for a relaxing gourmet evening! While many other restaurants may ask for 17% of both the government tax and service charge for this optional beverage choice, this option provided to all diners at THE SQUARE instantly becomes one of the strongest pulling factors. It is especially true if you plan to enjoy a big feast with your colleagues, gossiping about your work over wine glasses and fine food. This seafood dinner buffet, as well as their 500-Baht free flow of wine or beer will be your wise choice.
(3) This seafood buffet highlights new seafood items every three weeks.
It is a clever strategy to attract return customers. When we tried the buffet, fish was their featured seafood item. It was cooked in two totally different ways, we were satisfied with the quality. Both dishes were not overcooked, the taste of fish was not stolen away by deep-frying or the creamy sauce. They also keep in secret for what will be featured next. This, in fact, makes us very curious and would like to come back again for another round of seafood feast.
(4) Very tempting desserts
The mouth-watering dessert counter with an eye-catching chocolate fountain surely delighted us. We are certain that it will satisfy your sweet tooth. Various kinds of cakes, Thai desserts and homemade gelato are also served!
(5) Very quality hot dishes
There are more than enough hot dishes served at the buffet. We especially love their roasted beef and Indian cuisine, which are always delicately prepared to spice up our taste buds! Don’t miss their homemade pizza, which are freshly baked for diners during the buffet, as well as the pasta corner!
We recommend this seafood dinner buffet to you all. We also highly recommend you to make advance reservation.
