Skip the Siam Niramit Buffet

Yesterday, I gave praises for Bangkok's Siam Niramit show. It's one of the most beautiful shows I've ever seen so far. The show was amazing, but their buffet was not. For 350 baht per person, it's better to skip this and you won't miss anything.

There were five buffet tables, each carrying a different kind of cuisine. At the long table, there was chicken curry, deep fried fish in chili sauce, and more. At the table off towards the back of the room, there was a selection of Chinese dishes.  They had noodles, spicy salad and soup. In the center table, they had different kinds of salad. Off to the other end from the Chinese table, they had a selection of Indian cuisine. In the corner of the room, they had fruits and dessert near the coffee and tea.

It sounds like a good selection. However, when I browsed through all the dishes in the big white room I couldn't bring myself to an appetite. The food didn't look fresh. It wasn't inviting at all.

My husband went to explore the Chinese section and asked the staff what sauce to put in the noodles. He was directed to a hot and sour soup kind of sauce. It didn't seem like a right combination, and the soup/sauce tasted bland.
Even the fruits didn't look fresh.

In all places I've been to in Thailand (eating nooks included), this is the most disappointing food fare in Bangkok. My 350 baht wasn't worth all the food in the buffet at all. I could have gotten a good meal at Black Canyon for far less that amount.

If you're planning to go to Siam Niramit, it's best to eat out and be at the venue 15 minutes before the start of the show at 8pm. Trust me. Skip the buffet.
