Riche Montana Korean BBQ Buffet@ Ipoh Garden South

I don't know how many Ipohites are reading this blog, but my bad experience at Riche Montana must be shared.

I heard some feedback about this place, but without trying, I won't be having solid opinion. Price @ RM29.90+ for adult and RM19.90+ for children, the spread of food was just too limited!!!!! They called themselves as buffet, my goodness!!!
Not only spread was limited, quality of food was super mediocre, only one of two marinated beef and chicken were nice....and the Korean pickles were up to mark. Other than that, overall the buffet was SUPER LOUSY.

oNLY THESE beef were nice.....

the prawns & crabs were not fresh, fish pieces were ok, but too garlicky( as the marination is garlic based)!!!

Some cold and so called "tempura" for you to reheat

The pickles were nice

The 3 types of so called dessert / cake served ......super normal, can get at pasar malam type

3 types of sushi served....ok lah, edible

I told myself I will not eat any buffet here in Ipoh, there were a few steamboat cum BBQ buffet I had was unsatisfactory....I don't mind limited choice, but give us at least quality food!!!
To name a few, Heritage Hotel Hi Tea buffet - serving worst than some lousy street food, price@ RM19.90/pax, limited selection
Casurina Hotel, Buffet Lunch, below average quality!

The best buffet in Ipoh by far is Movenpeak at Greentown. It's buffet steamboat - very wide selection. I will go there again.

health freak mommy, agree with you, comparatively Movenpeak's buffet is better.

Des, thanks. Yours too! welcome back in blogging!

good. I was expecting some mediocre reviews, as I never found their spread of 'Korean delights' to be anything much.
then I'll give this a miss.

SimpleGirl said...

j2kfm, is below average! I don't think they can survive if they don't improve. How many will re-visit??

I was browsing the keyword of Ipoh Garden South when I came across your blog. Thank you for spreading the word. Though I am from Ipoh but I didn't try this restaurant mentioned by you. I think it's located near the main road and at the corner lot.
