Allured by the attractive deal of BBQ buffet with free flow alcohol at 50% discount on Thursday’s Ladies Night, we made a reservation with Oasis Restaurant @ Grand Hyatt. It was definitely a very different experience and expectation i had from a buffet within a Hotel.

First impression, unlike the typical buffet line in a hotel setting where the dining area is usually air-conditioned, with comfortable seating and extensive selection of food, Oasis offers an alfresco dining with by the pool seating and had a total different focus in their food selections. It mainly revolves around BBQ meats with limited variety on salad, seafood on ice and their dessert selections. What makes it distinctive, is none other than the offering of free flow alcohol throughout the night. Alcohol choices include Red Wine, White Wine, Prosecco and Magaritas. They do serve soft drinks and juices for the non-alcoholics drinkers too.

Prosecco – Sparkling wine originating from the Italy region.

Magaritas – Choice of Lime, Strawberry and Mango. It was the sweeter version of the cocktail. I was disappointed by the fact when we were told that certain flavors were no longer available when we ordered later into the night and in the first place it was not available right at beginning of the buffet too. First, it was a free flow alcohol night, shouldn’t you ensure, that all flavors should be made available right from the start till the end of the buffet?

Garlic Bread that was served to each table. The garlic bread turns out to be surprisingly good with the aromatic toasted garlicky flavor on the warm soft bread.

Choice of Salads available. Something that is really light and simple. Enjoyed the potato salad best of all.

Only Oyster and Prawns for Seafood on Ice. Though the oysters are a little small, but they are rather juicy and sweet and the prawns on the other hand are much bigger than what you usually see in other buffet line. It is fresh and succulent too. Thus, even though they only have 2 varieties, the quality was commendable and you will always be back for more!

Here the BBQ line which includes Beef, Chicken Thigh, different kind of vegetables such as capsicums, brinjal, sweet corn, asparagus, mushrooms, Sausages, Fish Fillet, Lamb Chop, Prawns where you can see the chef preparing them over an open charcoal fire grill. Among all, i love the beef slices the most, it’s tender and juicy. The rest are pretty common and safe choices while some, mainly mushrooms comes with a bitter charred taste. Lamb chop was another disappointment, it’s kind of under-cooked, resulting it to be tough and chewy.

There’s Roast Duck available too.

Here’s a Noodle Section where you can choose your own ingredients for the chef to cook it according to your preference over the hot stone. Otherwise, there’s pre-cooked fried noodle for the taking too.

Once you’re done with the heavier tasting BBQ meats, you can indulge in some sweet refreshing desserts. There’s not much selection, 1 chocolate based and a couple of fruit based desserts cups. There’s Vanilla and Chocolate soft serve too.

All in all, will i pay the full original price for this buffet? I would say no, but at 50% price, yes, once in a lifetime experience. The quality of food is there, but after all i’m there for a buffet, i would really appreciate more variety. I could see the in-charge trying to emphasize on service standards rendered to us consumers, but there are times where our orders of drinks were forgotten and we need to keep calling out to the waitress/waiters which can be quite frustrating. If you would like to go, remember to make your reservation in advance!
