Mosaic at Mandarin Oriental - Kuala Lumpur Ratings and Reviews
I loved the array of desserts. The Chinese dishes were a disappointment. The chef is not Chinese or not familiar with the 'soul' of Chinese dishes? The Indian dishes were above average but the Western and Japanese were nothing to write home about. The saving grace of the lunch buffet were the helpful staff except one.
Well, overall the service of people there is really up to standard, undeniable. The ambience there is fantastic. The salad bar got lots of variety, as well as the Indian food, is delicious. The mushroom soup is really rich of taste.
BUT other then that, it really much disappointed. The oyster is really not fresh, the prawn is not fresh. The eastern Chinese food corner is not attractive at all. The carbonara fettuccine from western food corner is really not up to the basic standard, it is water diluted, is not creamy(is like it should not happen in hotel standard). There are a lot of improvement area as a 5 star hotel restaurant facilities; for the food, I think Shogun Japanese restaurant is much more better.... I will not come back again if there is no improvement; and won't pay that kind of price for the food.
i've been dining at Mosaic quite regularly since becoming Elite Club Member. Most of my dining experiences had been great. Just to point out the sitting arrangement inside the restaurant. Probably some new arrangement can be set because it can be quite crowded and chair hitting another one when trying to stand up and leave the chair (especially near the bench area). And also open kitchen concept can make the place quite smelly at times.
Variety and quality of food below par. Not worth the price or the hype. Was surprised at how normal the type of foods offered. At most the buffer is only worth double digit. In comparison with E&O Penang and Rasa Sayang Rosort, these are the kind of buffet that deserve such hype and price.
Even though the buffet dinner was highly recommended but unfortunately I was a disappointed with a few things.
1) Serving Staff was very attentive and check on us a few times.
2) Wine was good.
3) Ambiance was nice and pleasant.
4) Dessert section was good in terms of variety and display. Staff at the station was attentive as well.
5) Selection of coffee and tea was good.
Things to improve: (Food was not value for money)
1) Selection was not that great especially the chinese section. I was hoping to see some dim sum but there was none. The dishes were not very attractive looking either.
2) On the day I went, there was not much crowd but there is no reason for the chefs not to check the food and ensure it is still warm and the grill items such as satay, tandoori chicken were not dried out.
3) There could be more varieties offered for the Malay and Chinese section.
4) Apart from the grill station staff, other chefs that was in other stations were not promoting any of the dishes when I was walking around...they could have promoted the dishes more.
Overall, fine, but Seating, this was a bit issue. There were plenty tables around, but they put other family next to our table, looks like we are all a big family. Just couldn't understand the logic, when there were all empty tables around until we finished the meal. The regulars or members look get better tables - I don't have any problem with that, but wish the restaurant could look into more carefully of the SEATING.
The food was good, particularly, lamb racks were my favorite along with various of desserts. The servicing staff of my table was very good. I don't think I will visit there again because couldn't find the value for the money, the food selections were smaller than other five star hotels.
I was there for normal dining with my family.
We are 2 adults and 2 children.
We were fasting when we come.
The front desk customer service (the Malay lady) was giving the complimentary drink for us as our breakfasting drink from the Mosaic.
It was very wonderfull attention from the Mosaic.
Thank you very much...
Absolutely we will visit Mosaic again..:)😍😍😍👍👍👍
The service was great. The waiter helped my son order pasta.
Dessert was great. Taking out the cakes and chocolates from the glass case felt like you were at a pastry shop.
Although there was nothging gorgeous like a roat beef, the overall taste of food was good and the staff were friendly. My son and I really enjoyed it.
The food was fresh and tasty except for the sushi. The sushi rice tasted a bit dry and hard. Also for RM148, I expected more variety. The buffet selection was very limited. However, my date enjoyed the unlimited refill of TWG tea that was inclusive in the buffet package.
This was a business lunch for five people. The local, Japanese and Chinese food was very good. However the 'European' food at the carvery was either being rationed, or was very scarce. Not a good impression when one of our table actually wanted a nice slice of meat!
Was told by my friends that Mosaic was one of the top buffet dining option in KL and with mandarin oriental being one of the top hotel chain in the world, certainly there were expectations before we even went there to celebrate my friend's birthday. Was given a spot by the window facing the water fountain of KLCC. Though the view was alright, my friend was Perspiring as he went through his meal. Before you think he was rushing through his meal, no he wasn't. Instead, it was because he was seated below the spotlight which was emitting heat. There wasn't a spot. (Bad lighting option)
As for food, I must say, it was terrible. The appetisers (cold section) definitely didn't look palatable. The chilled prawns didn't look fresh and the dark residual water definitely wasn't a great sight. The oysters were edible and for the sashimi, I'm just beyond words. The tuna was so dry and I couldn't even continue after the first bite. The salmon was definitely not any better as well. And the replacement rate for the sashimi was terrible. It took way longer than 30 mins before they were refreshed.
The Indian section's curry was diluted. It seemed to have been simply mixed with water to increase its volume. The naan was tough and very thick. Too thick such that it's comparable to English pancakes.
I can continue on my comments for every section of the food but I'm limited on character count. And do note, I'm not exactly extremely picky on my food but having been to many buffet dinners in well known hotels, I know what's considered even palatable. And my friend shares the same view as well.
I wanted to look for someone after eating to provide my feedback but it seemed as if there weren't any managers around. I saw one but he was busy attending to another customer who was also having an unpleasant time.
I sincerely hope that the mosaic management does something quickly.
The first time I booked to mosaic, which was one month in advance they messed up my booking. Made another booking for last Saturday and I called them four days before the dinner date to reconfirm to make sure no further mess up.
Unfortunately they called me up the next day to reconfirm my booking a day after I called up... Irritating. Two days before my dinner date, I received an email to greet me a pleasant dinner BUT to make sure I turn up or my booking will be surrendered 15 minutes after the said time.
The greeting was masked as turn up and make sure you keep your booking rather than a truly warm welcome and enjoy your dinner.
Overall dinner was good except for the oysters. It was so skinny that it would be better not served.
The atmosphere of the restaurant is very good, the staffs are polite and the service is very good. However, the seafood prepared weren't fresh enough. We only eat small amount of the seafood. For the sushi section, the sashimi aren't fresh as well. Turn to the dessert, the ice cream weren't store in the fridge but on a bucket of ice. They actually melted and looks disgusting.
