It’s easy to write restaurant reviews when a place is so head and shoulders above its competitors that it’s in a league of its own.  That’s the case at the moment with Urban Kitchen right now, so much so that this is the only buffet you should be going to when in Macau.  The quality and selection are both top notch, and I honestly don’t see a weakness anywhere.


Look at it from this perspective.  Let’s say that a very good buffet, or maybe even an excellent buffet, would break down like this: 40% of what you had was excellent, 40% was good, and 20% you didn’t care too much for.  At Urban Kitchen however, those ratios are closer to 75% excellent, 20% fine and 5% disappointing.  I’m not exaggerating, the food there is really that good.


The seafood selection is worth the price of admission alone, locked and loaded with a ton of sushi, sashimi, king prawns, crab legs, mussels, oysters and Norwegian salmon.  Other standout selections include the grilled mandarin fish, slow cooked Angus roast beef, Peking duck, and wagyu beef.  There’s also an impressive assortment of salad, cheese, cold cuts and desserts as well, meaning diners of all persuasions should find exactly what they’re looking for.


Urban Kitchen has elevated buffet dining and taken it to another level in Macau.  Now it’s up to their rivals and competitors to rise to the challenge.
