Dinner May 05, 2011
No waiting time as booked by phone and was led to table pretty fast.
Must say was rather disappointed after all the rave reviews on this place. There was hardly any variety and if you do not eat oysters do not come here as I guess all the good reviews are based on oyster lovers who really have value for money I guess as there was a selection of oysters and apparently tasted quite good.
The cheese wheel was interesting and the cheese tasted good, the salad was nice and there was some delicious desserts. The service was good and the there was unlimited bottled cola- a bonus since bottled cola tastes so much better than canned cola.
There was a complimentary seafood soup not sure if it was lobster or crayfish which was served by the waiter seperate from the buffet which tasted really nice.
Overall it was a nice decent place although not much variety and the price was around 400HKD. Therefore did not quite live up to expectations.

never go again Aug 24, 2010
Attracted by many good comments of this new hotel, I supposed it would be a fantastic dinner for my father to celebrate his birthday. Unfortunately, it really disappointed my family and ruined my father’s birthday. First of all, all the cold dishes are not fresh at all, crabs were really thin, oysters were not fresh and tasteless. I don’t know why there were so many people say that this buffet is good. Also, they didn’t have many choices of hot dishes and desert for us to choose. I won’t go there again coz it doesn’t worth at all.

Good price lunch buffet Apr 25, 2010
With a group of 9, almost are seniors, looking for good place for lunch buffet.
Present OR coupon, this one is good price and fairly good comments.
It is fairly good indeed. Good price, nice food, although not 1000 choices, but most of them are good taste, and people there will not showing a crazy face to grap foods in a second.
Dessert in small pieces, can try some more. Cream corn soup keep in hot temp, a good to them!
Beef sirloin need $20 for a serve, but they have lamp chop, fish, BBQ pork, steam rice with chicken and mushroom, is enough for me.

Super Nice Dinner Dec 04, 2009
Visited Cafe Express again for Buffet Dinner... a bit worry as seeing some of the not too good comments recently... I haven't visited for months because I couldn't book the table for a while (I never like booking too advance and wait and wait..) It always happen that when a restaurant gets popular the standard declines, I thought Cafe Express was one of these.....
Since my friend loves eating oysters and there are 5 kinds of order-to-open oysters, we decided to go for it. Imagine my friend can easily eat 10 pcs, easy to get back the value! I made a booking for this week and it was not busy at all. The staff told me because of the price has increased, the cafe is not as crowded as before. Well, now, with the coupon it's $528 for 2, I think is still fine as it's not yet touching my $300 margin (our budget).
I had some nice baked oysters, I loved it!!! And the sashimi is soooo fresh, and the sushi.... the one with the shrimp is simply divine! I had at least 5. They refill very fast and the staff clear our plates very fast too. To finish the meal in 2 hours time is not a problem for us at all! I found myself keep on eating for 2 hours, that's crazy!
Hot dishes wise, well, I find everywhere is similar, nothing to highlight but I love their curry. I know they have an indian chef may be this is the reason that the curry is so nice! Be honest, I filled myself up just with the seafood and sashimi (in order to get back the value ma~)
They have put all the dessert in a fridge now. I love it! I scare to see those 'sweating' dessert and before I didn't touch too much. Now, I find it tempting to try....good improvement. The cakes are all mini-size, very cute!
I will still go back for sure.... especially December everywhere is so pricey, Cafe Express is one of my most favorite choices!
