Brunei Sungkai 2017: Emperor’s Court Sungkai Buffet

DSCF7818

It’s no secret that Emperor’s court is one of the places I like to go for Chinese food and Dim Sum. Ever since a new management has taken over, the service and food has never failed me when I dine in here. Last year, my family had their Sungkai buffet here and this year we are coming again. I also like their ample parking space at the Hua Ho Manggis Mall Basement Car Park ~~

Emperor’s Court spacious dining area makes it pretty child friendly.
