Brunei Sungkai 2017: Radisson Hotel Tasek Brasserie

DSCF7537

Tasek Brasserie’s is one of my favourite hotel buffets for its classy posh ambience and great International buffet during Sungkai.


DSCF7551

They have since undergone renovation to their poolside area and it has a cosier feel to it.


DSCF7536DSCF7535

There are two sections for seating ~~ the posh ambience makes this a good choice to bring someone special for a comfortable Sungkai dinner


DSCF7538

Now the buffet is divided into a few areas so I’ll give you a tour of their Sungkai buffet spread. At the hotel lobby – is the main courses area and the soups/porridge area. The main courses are on a rotational basis and combines local favourites with International cuisine.

Now we may be wondering ~~ with sooo much choices ~~ how much does the buffet with such a classy ambience cost per person? It's $29.90 for adults and $15 per child between 4-11 years old!


You should try to grab more friends ~~~ for every 9 adults - the 10th person eats for free ~~ so if you divide by 10 people - it will be $26.91 per adult.


FB_IMG_1495150541353


Of course if you plan and buy ahead in bulk for company dinners or big family gatherings ~~ you can get bulk discounts!
