Outstanding selections of foods and beverages in JW Cafe buffet make the distance of this hotel from the city centre a minor hindrance. Different from many international buffet restaurants in the city, JW Cafe buffet is highly popular with buffetarians and it is rare that you will get a table without making prior reservations. 

Making a stop at each station is like a visit to a different restaurant, whether it introduces local or international cuisine, in its own style. The Japanese station serves various types of sushi and sashimi, sliced, wrapped and presented beautifully on sushi mats. The Italian counter makes even the pickiest customers succumb to the temptation of picking up a freshly-baked thin slices of pizza with the layer of cheese melting on the top. People also could not resist the attractiveness of the dessert area which is even more than sweet-tooth's heaven with wide range of cakes, Vietnamese desserts, ice cream, ...

Although the prices here may be higher than some other buffet places, the foods and service certainly make a lasting impression. They also have unprecedented offers, such as unlimited fresh fruit juice, available dishes of lobster and foie gras on Sunday brunch, as well as the music bands playing drum and guitar at weekends. JW Cafe also has one of the most tranquil and romantic lunch scene in Hanoi, with picturesque landscaped lakeside vistas that surround the restaurant.
