Your guide to 6 post-lockdown hotel restaurant buffets in Bangkok

Stuffing ourselves until we dropped was something we really missed about hotel buffets during the lockdown. With the dine-in ban lifted, now, a few have re-opened with special offers (and extra safety measures) in place.

From live cooking stations to hot barbecues and sizzling curries, hotel restaurant buffets allowed us to savour a variety of foods one plate at a time. Moreover, they’re perfect for getting your family together or to gather your team for your next outing. Here, we’ve curated a list of hotel restaurants with buffets to satisfy your roaring dine-out craving.
