Excapade Teppenyaki.

Undoubtedly the most famous Japanese restaurant in Brunei. It seems that no matter how many branches they open, there will always be a queue! This new branch is probably going to be a popular one, so make sure you call in advance to reserve your table. They also have shabu-shabu here which you cook via the infrared cooker on your table.

Excapade Teppanyaki & Shabu Shabu Bunut branch is located at 
Spg 638 A2 Ground Flr

Sungkai at The Atrium Cafe.

One of my favorite venue to breakfast. It’s comfy even when there is a big crowd and the food selection is wonderful. This year they also have Ramadhan stalls are also available at level one with various choices of malay kueh sampler, mezze sampler and Ramadhan drinks open from 6pm to 11pm. It’s a good place to just hang-out with friends & families.

The Sungkai Buffet cost $28 per adult and $14 per child. For reservations or further enquiries please call 2418888. More photos here.

Sungkai at Da’Mammamia Pizzeria. Different from others. No buffet here. Only discounts depending how much you order.

I recommend the Family Pizza. Its half meter long and has 3 different toppings of your choice. Only $33. Dishes are freshly prepared so you’ll be sure to get it off the stove.

All good at I-Lotus. I think it’s more than four years in a row now that I’ve never missed a Sungkai session at I-Lotus. Food choice is simply a lot and the quality is consistently good. So that’s why you must always make your reservations as this place is always packed.

Their Hot Plate Grill is probably their most popular part of the buffet. You can choose from crabs, prawns, stingrays and fish to be freshly cooked for you. You can also have various fried items, soup noodles (must try tom yam), rojak and desserts such as ABC and local cakes too. And there is even so much more. I doubt it if one can try every single one of them in one sitting.

And all this for only B$16.80 (Adult) and B$9.80 (Child). So it is not surprising to see the Chinese community frequenting the Sungkai buffet too. Besides Sungkai buffet, I-Lotus also offers Sahur Steamboat Buffet (1030pm-1am) at B$11.80 (Adult) and B$7.80 (Child).
