The sunday brunch was a disaster. "Amanda" was the only one there who was able to speak even a little English. From the welcoming, to the attentiveness and standard of the service, the hygiene (sushi without cooling, dust everywhere, staff with dirty clothes,...), the sadness of the buffet, to the quality of the food - it was a disgrace for a hotel in this category. For this price you can have the Hyatt on the Bund brunch, which is amazing and really, really special. I feel ripped off and going to this brunch was a waste of life time, especially because no one amongst the staff actually cared about how the buffet looked, the food tasted or the service went. I had read good things about this brunch before, but I can assure you that this sad image of an international hotel sunday brunch is not only not worth anyone's attention or money, but should even be avoided because it simply ruins your day. We're out for sunday champagne brunches about once a month and we want to try different venues from time to time, so we're able to put this brunch into perspective to other brunches.

Stayed at Le Royal Meridien 9-12 Nov 2015. Booked a Deluxe Room + Breakfast package at RMB 1465 per night.

Breakfast was served at Le Bistrot Signature Restaurant at its lobby at Level 7. Good choice of hot and cold breakfast, mixture of international, Japanese, Korean, Chinese cuisines. Good choice of tea selections, coffee, juices, ice cream, fruits, pancakes, waffles, etc. Really tasty.

Restaurant has good view of Nanjing Lu Pedestrian Mall.

Enjoyed. Really valued for money.

A lovely place to enjoy a Sunday brunch. Lots of choices, from oysters to burgers and delicious lobster from the barbecue on the terrace. The staff were very friendly and helpful. A magician entertained us and drinks delivered from 'cowgirls' I believe on other days it can be nurses supplying the drinks. Lots of fun and good value.

When we arrived the atmosphere was ok, a little too loud because of the DJ music.
During all brunch we were served and asked once what we would like to drink, so the free flow here must to be on your own, you have to stand up go to the bar and ask for something to drink…. No service!!!!
The buffet was a disappointment, it was enough to choose from but the quality was bellow from what I expect, from a Royal Meridien.
For 650 RMB per person... there are many other better options in town.
I would not recommend Le Bistro for a brunch, and I will not go there again.

Offers a buffet breakfast and also buffet dinner menu that includes beer or wine. Good selection of European and Chinese type food. Help yourself to all you can eat. Good service, not the cheapest but a good price for this type of hotel.
