It may not be the most lavish buffet in town, but The Verandah at The Peninsula hotel is probably the most civilised. While many other all-you-can-eat offerings are rowdy affairs where you might find yourself with chopsticks at ten paces ready to duel for the last lobster tail, there is rarely a queue here. What you get is an elegant sufficiency of popular items such as chilled seafood (no oysters), cold cuts and a salad bar, as well as hot dishes such as Indian curries and roast beef from the carvery, all replenished regularly. Drinks packages are offered on top of the buffet, and a separate wine list is available packed with big-ticket labels as well as interesting drops from Israel, Lebanon and Hungary. Service is polite and efficient. Dishes are cleared promptly and drinks topped up when needed. The neutral palette of the colonial-style dining room, done up in taupe and cream, complements the calm atmosphere of the restaurant.
