Sen Tay Ho (West Lake Lotus) Mar 29, 2010
This is a buffet style restaurant with various Vietnamese cuisines from north to south as well as some international cuisine, where they have a Japanese counter which serves sushi, another one that serves Italian; some pasta and pizza and Chinese cuisine. There are also a la minute Cha Ca, Bun Cha & Pho counters. They serve a lot of shellfish like escargots, clams and mussels in 3 different cooking styles each. There are the deep fried baby crabs which are crunchy and it goes very well with beer. I do like the braised oxtail in herbal soup which is flavourful. One of the dishes on the buffet is sparrow. I have never tried sparrow till that night. It’s really small and it taste like duck. I find the food mediocre but the varieties are wide. It is a spacious restaurant with soft Vietnamese music playing while diners hit the buffet table.
We were told even the locals’ likes to dine here but I see more tourists. There were 16 of us and I would say 50% in our group likes the food there or more keen on the varieties all under one roof and the other 50%, me inclusive, find the food mediocre but the varieties are wide.
