Very easy access within the hotel and a great choice for both breakfast and the occasional dinner. Lots of choice at the buffet.

“Fantastic Sunday Brunch in luxury”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014

We went for a treat today, spending 1000 Baht/pp on brunch (around what we've been paying for 3 nights of accommodation). And a treat it was: freshly shucked oysters, roast beef and ham, pizza made to order, assorted cold meats and cheeses, sushi, sashimi, smoked salmon, cold seafood, salads, seafood and meat made to order, not to mention the buffet. There was the option of free flow of wines, cocktails, etc for 700 Baht, but we just went for the food, and soft drinks, fresh juices, coffee and tea are included in the 1000 Baht price.

The lady singing throughout brunch was great - not too intrusive, and even did a Whitney Houston song successfully.

I asked the chef to make me crab twice, once with yellow curry and the second time with butter only - it was the freshest crab I've had since we've been travelling in Thailand the past three months. The roast beef was a great quality too. The marinated mushrooms and the grilled pumpkin at the cold meat station were exceptionally tasty. The baked oysters were delicious too.

It was such a delightful treat, and even with the free flowing drinks, would be good value - I saw lots of bubbly flowing over brunch.

“Air conditioned Western Respite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2013

We ate at this restaurant twice while we were in Chiang Mai. The attraction was the buffet lunch, for which they were known and which was better than average. The spread covered a range of cuisines, so you could either opt for Asian or Western or you could mix and match. The Asian cuisine has been calibrated to the Western palate and offers no challenges. They offered a popular carvery option, and, Indian and Thai on the days that we ate there. The special treats were the dessert options. Displayed as though small jewels or trinkets these were delights served in tiny glasses or on small plates and placed on eye level glass shelving for your selection. Each serving was a one mouthful exquisite gustatory thrill. We had a young teen with us who thought she had arrived in heaven. Maybe they rotate their lunch time policy, it seems there is a set menu these days. Being famous for their buffet lunch it seems unlikely that they would abandon a proven and popular format. Le Meridien is centrally located and within a short walk of almost everything in the city: the Street Markets, the Night Bazaar, China Town, Travel Agencies, clusters of other hotels. The loos are western, clean and salubrious. Accessibility by road is easy. If you are looking for a western respite: air conditioning, the familiarity of western cuisine, as so many travellers do from time to time, after which everything else becomes possible again, then this is a good stop off point.

“Average hotel breakfast buffet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2013

We only had breakfast and it was fine but nothing special given the price. The evening buffets were reasonably priced but did not look appetizing enough to try.
