Review: Setia City Palace 8 – BBQ & Seafood Steamboat (Pork Free) Buffet

I’m a huge fan of BBQ & Seafood Steamboat and when it’s buffet it gets better! My friend recommended me to try a newly open BBQ & Seafood Steamboat buffet at Setia City Palace 8 which serves BBQ & Seafood Steamboat Pork Free buffet (they’re in the midst of applying HALAL certificate) . This restaurant is located at Ground Floor within Setia City Convention Centre and the entrance is facing the walkway to Setia City Shopping Mall.

When having steamboat, sauce dips are extremely important.

Be your own sauce chef and mix it up!

The drinks bar offers water, coffee, tea and juices. As a fan of sweet tooth, desserts is a must and they offer Polar Ice Cream, Ais Krim Potong and Mango Sago in shot glasses. There’s also fresh fruits and mochi (in red bean, peanut and pandan flavour)

Now, check out my review on Setia City Palace 8 BBQ & Seafood Steamboat Pork Free Buffet!

This restaurant is fully air conditioned and is quite spacious. It makes me feel comfortable dining in this luxurious Chinese style steamboat restaurant. For the buffet, you have up to 2-hours to enjoy it!

For soup base, I tried the Palace Chicken Stock Soup, Palace Special Tomato Soup, Thai Tom Yam Soup and Satay Lok Lok. I love the tom yam soup as its not too spicy and the clear palace chicken stock soup. Lok Lok sauce is pretty good for its nutty grounded flavor. If you love a tangy sourish taste, try the palace special tomato soup.

Whenever, you need a refill the waiter/waitress will assist you. Otherwise, feel free to top up the soup on your own as the restaurant prepare soup base refill in a small jug.

With the skewers, you can opt to bbq grill, dip into hotpot or deep fried it. I got to say, I preferred the deep dried skewers as it’s so crisp and the spices just burst in your mouth!

Another huge shoutout is the unlimited refills of sliced poultry of American Beef Slices and Lamb Slices. My husband love this the most. Just dip into the hotpot, and complement it with your self mix sauce!

Seafood is fresh and huge especially the XL shelled scallop. Be it grill or cook with hotpot, its still juicy!

End the night with desserts is a must. The puree mango sago is a delight to have for its not too sweet and mochi is good too!

Overall, I love the bbq & steamboat buffet at Setia City Palace 88 as they serve fresh and huge seafood which is certainly worth the money.
