Tiffin invokes a sense of style from the moment you ascend the black marble stairs to be seated at either the comfortably spaced tables or the deep lounges set asunder a magnificent towering wall of glass that by night offers dazzling views of the cities lights or by day the green foliage of the hotel’s hidden garden. An understated elegance is enhanced by the towering ceiling with its silver leaf centre and images of contemporary art adding to this unique ambience. The buffett is arranged at the heart of the room with food beautifully arranged and served on elegant bone China. Tiffin is a place to relax with friends and family for a long afternoon lunch or a lingering evening.
Buffet presentation can often leave a lot to be desired, but not at Tiffin where attention to the smallest detail ensures food not only looks inviting but retains all the freshness one would expect from an al a carte menu. A myriad of serving areas caters for every epicurean desire; succulent meats, pan seared fois gras served on baked apple with a reduced infused sauce is above expectations; freshly shucked oysters, moist prawns and crab are popular targets creating the only area of queue jumping witnessed; a more elegant meandering remains as guests are tempted with morsels of flavour from wiener schnitzel to lobster bisque or freshly carved roasted beef to a beautifully cooked duck; Tiffin is buffet dining in a grand manner yet retaining an elegance whilst offering convenience for family and friends to share; the desserts are devine and created with a sense of fun shared by children whose faces are agog in amazement; home made ice creams reflect the skill of the kitchen with the rum and raisin perhaps requiring one to take a taxi home.
A limited selection is available at Tiffin with various wines offered by the glass; the hotel’s master wine list is also available from which guests can select some of the world’s greatest vintages. A pleasant selection of teas and non alcoholic cocktail creations is also available.
Grand Hyatt service is evident from the moment you are greeted and shown to your table; all questions are answered knowingly from staff trained at the highest level; napkins are always refolded between trips to the buffet and clean cutlery is provided almost invisibly for each course.
TheTiffin Buffet dinner is priced at HK$688.00 per person and with wine will come closer to HK$1,000 per person; for the setting, great food and excellent service it is worth it.
