We stayed at a hotel that where breakfast was not included so walked over to The Langham for breakfast one morning. It was a very nice experience. We had a table by the window which enabled us to see Kowloonites heading to work, etc. Upon inspection, the room decor is kind of weird but had no negative impact... we just noticed some odd decor choices. However!!! The buffet is very extensive!!! They have a wonderful cherry-rum jam that was amazing on their raisin bread. Also, enjoyed a cappuccino and espresso in the meal. The floor staff were very warm and astoundingly attentive. The hotel lobby is stunning. We intended to return for afternoon tea in the lobby, but never made it. Oh well, we'll just have to book here next visit and enjoy the entire hotel... because they impressed us so much on our little visit at breakfast!

Stayed at the Langham Place Hotel for 3 nights and loved the hotel and was eyeing the buffet at The Place as it looked amazing. Our second night decided to try it, which was a huge mistake, not only was it rather expensive but the food was atrocious. The fish whether cooked or sushi was fishy tasting. We kept trying different things and each one was a disappointment.

I am a local and was in Mongkok area last Saturday morning (for a Tai Chi class). Specially tried the buffet breakfast because of the rave reviews on the hotel here. I was hopeful and excited before going, and felt blissful and satisfied when leaving.

I have tried all the buffets of most, if not all, of the hotels in Hong Kong in the past. This one is outstanding, in terms of variety, quality, service and ambience.

Variety: Chinese dim sum, fried noodles, congee. Unlike other hotels, dim sum here is kept in the brown Chinese steamer so that moisture in the food is preserved, the surface layer remains supple. Japanese sushi, rice, noodles and soup. All western kind like instantly prepared omellete, pancake, fresh hash brown, bacon, cereal, cold cuts, salad, yogurt, fresh fruits. It has some drinks that are rare in other hotels: it has berry mix juice (I have drunk 2 full glasses) and yakult.

Quality: Food are presented and kept in very good condition always. Regularly refilled. The only worse dish is the mixed vegetables. They are over boiled.

Service: Obviously I am a local as I was reading local Chinese newspapers. As observed, I may be the only one local while all others are tourists and guests staying in this hotel. The staff are equally amiable, friendly and nice to me. When I was asked what drinks I like, I said coffee. Usually such answer will be taken as it is, but they still went on and offered other options of cuppucino, latte etc. They are smart. In my memory, I never see my used plates remaining on my table after returning from the buffet bar.

Ambience: Area big enough, not crowded, enough sunlight. The customers here are decent, and of high standard.

I enjoy the whole 2 hours time. If my stomach was not full, I wanted to go for more rounds.....
