Now, let’s start with the Setia City Palace 8 BBQ Steamboat Pork Free Buffet Review.

The restaurant is fully air conditioned and the ambiance is bright, clean and spacious. It feels like a premium Chinese steamboat / hotpot restaurant so it gives a lot of comfortable dining experience here.

I tried four soups and they are Palace Chicken Stock Soup, Palace Special Tomato Soup, Thai Tom Yam Soup and Satay Lok Lok.

I enjoyed the Palace Chicken Stock Soup and Palace Special Tomato Soup as the taste is not too strong so you can enjoy the taste of the food. The tom yam soup is enjoyable as it is not too spicy and I love the satay lok kok sauce as I love lok lok.

The service here is good as they always come and refill the broth. You can also choose from 1 soup to four soups based on your preferences.

Beside the hotpot, there is the BBQ grill section. Here you can grill the skewers, meat or seafood. It is up to your preferences.

You can BBQ grill the skewers, dipped into hotpot or deep fried them. If you like it crispy, no harm trying deep fry the skewers as they taste so good.

Since I tried most of the food, let me highlight what I love most at Setia City Palace 8 BBQ Steamboat.

The Sliced Poultry, they offer American Beef Slices and Lamb Slices. This will be served on your table and you can order this again from them without extra charges.

Just lightly dipped these on the hotpot and complement it with the sauce, this taste so good especially with their sesame sauce.

Their seafood is fresh and huge and I had like easily half a dozen of those XXL shelled scallop. Either you grilled it or cook it with hotpot, it taste so juicy and good!

I took my time enjoying the food for two hours. After slowly finishing the food, time for ice cream and the mango sago. The mango sago is sweet and savoury and it is the perfect ending for the BBQ seafood dinner.

Overall, the soups are tasty, the food are fresh and the seafood is huge and generous. For the buffet, if you love seafood, this is definitely worth the visit and the money.

Their opening hours are from 11.30 am to 3 pm for lunch and 5.30 pm to 9.30 pm for dinner. Customers can enjoy buffet up to 2 hours per session.
