Novotel Sen5es Buffet Breakfast

We love a buffet breakfast, and we could not miss the chance to go to the Sen5es restaurant at the Novotel Perth Langley. We went on a Sunday morning, and were lucky to have booked as it was packed full of mostly visiting groups.

There were a couple of food stations, which contains the usual hot western breakfast foods such as eggs, bacon, cooked tomato, hash brown, sausages, mushrooms. At least the staples were there.

It is the more unusual items that make a special buffet breakfast. Some of the things that you don’t always find at a buffet breakfast included Chinese steamed pork buns, smoked salmon, stir fried noodles, which were all a great addition.

There were a good variety of juices including carrot and tomato. You could make your own coffee, but why would you when you could order an espresso coffee from the barista.

There was a large choice of breads, including a freshly baked crusty loaf which was so popular they could not keep up supply. It could have been better if a grainy bread was on offer. There was also a good mix of cakes and pastries.

The place is quite family friendly. The place was pretty noisy, so the extra noise that kids can somtimes make was not noticeable. Our kids were able to help themselves to most of the food items. The staff were very friendly.

On the negative side, we noticed they were quite slow to clean up plates, a few things ran out and were slow to be refreshed.

We came only because we had a Groupon voucher, and it was quire busy for a Saturday morning, probably due to their recent Groupon promotion. The voucher made it a very economical outing, but we enjoyed it so much we would consider coming back again and paying full price.

Sizzler Riverton Review

Sizzler Riverton

Overpriced. Simple as that. If you just order the salad bar option, there is quite a bit to choose from and you can get a decent feed. We found that if you hang out waiting for the fresh stuff and pounce when it arrives, you can get some decent salads. Kids will like it here, especially all you can eat dessert. For the price you pay, though, you should go elsewhere for a good freshly cooked meal.

Harvest, Kyoto Review

Harvest, Kyoto

An amazing buffet format restaurant in Kyoto station area that offers a large variety of Japanese food, with the aim of being healthy and natural using seasonal ingredients. A sign out the front says their philosophy is the “beauty comes from a healthy body”. And best of all it is all you can eat! We used the opportunity to sample a wide range of foods that we would not normally try, knowing that if we did not like it we could always try something else. There were a few surprises and overall a very good experience. It is not the cheapest place to eat, but worth a splurge if you want to try something different.

Other Things You Should Know

  • the restaurant is all you can eat buffet style
  • limit to 90 minutes per sitting
