I’m very cautious of buffets when it comes to ALL YOU CAN EAT dinners. I’ve had some pretty good ones and some pretty lousy ones.
And Cantonese dinner buffets of this style seem to give me the same high as someone who has just carbo, fat and protein loaded, about to bungee jump off a cliff. Yet, with some unsavory buffets, one seems to charge ahead, like a moth drawn to a flame. I know, going into the place, that the food will probably be pretty grotesque, and not the most attractive dishes will be laid out for me, but, we hope for the best, that just this one time, we might be pleasantly surprised!

Well, well, well. I am happy to report that Tai Zi Heen’s all you can eat buffet is the exception to that rule, and downright delicious!
The quality of food is pretty damn good. The portions are respectable and the speed with which they are delivered your dishes piping hot to the table is remarkable. This is the all you can eat, ala carte dinner, and it is served to you.. so no need to queue at the buffet line at all.

Yes yes, needless to say, I gluttoned myself to near death, and had a great time doing it.

What can I tell you? This truly is the best way to try out as many dishes (as humanly possible to digest) at a single price. It’s great for people who can eat, and eat till the cows come home. That’s probably why, I like it so much!Follow me on Instagram : @agentcikay
