Emporia is the restaurant for a hotel trying to be a first class international hotel. For their hotel restaurant to serve Chinese food plus a smattering of other options from the room service menu was strange.
I ordered a Thai vegetarian noodle dish. It took a lot of effort to explain that I wanted tofu in my dish, the waitress kept repeating "Thai food", which sounds similar. My noodles were average, but the tofu was a strange type that tasted burnt. My wife's burger was pronounced average. The waiting staff were doing their best, and were very attentive (perhaps a little too attentive).
We had a buffet breakfast at the restaurant as part of our hotel package. The breakfast was above average for a buffet, especially the freshly cooked omelettes and pastries, the other options were welcome, standard, and all-together not too bad but nothing to write home about. The breakfast buffets at the other hotels were stayed at in Thailand offered a variety of tea and coffee options, but this hotel restaurant did not and to get a English breakfast tea we had to pay extra which seemed a little petty given the cost of the rooms and the effort of putting a tea bag in hot water. The following day we did not bother and instead bought a drink at a cafe.
