Konggang Baiyun Hotel, Tianjin, 9 October 2018

At first, my impression was of an absolutely amazing buffet. However, once I started to look more closely, I again realised that quantity does not necessarily mean the same as quality. So, a large buffet, particularly strong on the Asian (Chinese and┬áJapanese) side. Plenty of different bread, very good fruit and vegetable selections. Nice looking hot bar. The cold cuts were disappointing, and while the presence of cheese was a definite plus, the choice was not great. The croissants were dry. Overall, it certainly wasn’t bad and a great deal of effort has gone into it. But I’d still only give it a 5/10.
