This special "New Wave" Chinese buffet is only available on Sundays and public holidays and we have two buffet sets to choose from. RM39++, (RM46, about USD13 with taxes) which comes with a bowl Braised Shark's Fin with Crabmeat and Crab Roe or the RM50++ (RM58, USD16 with taxes) which comes with an order of Double Boiled Shark's Fin Stuffed in Chicken Wing. Well, the truth of the matter is I've been abstaining from shark's fin but having the buffet here meant it came along with it. The 5 of us opted for the RM39++ set and with that, we were all promptly served a bowl of the braised shark's fin.
stinge on the ingredients. Served with an optional light coloured and good quality vinegar, this had to be one of the better shark's fin I've tasted in a long while. But then, it's really been a long while that I've eaten some! ha ha ha...After we were done with the bowl, we started on our buffet round.
The wonderfully tossed Lobster Salad....lip smackin' good!
Lidako - Baby Octopus. There are many other appetisers around. You have to be there to fully appreciate the way the spread is laid out. Individual tiny bowls, on spoons and also in little glasses like the next photo.
Here you have what one might call "Prawn Shooters".
Escargots-Chinese style which was sweet sourish with bits of cucumber and pineapple
Some food here are visually outstanding in their presentation. This was also my first time eating New Wave Chinese Food, still wondering what that really means actually. There are enough varieties available to keep us busy and as a matter of fact, we left the place without trying quite a number of them.
Simple hollow cucumber with small diced potatoes tossed in light salad dressing.
This was strangely addictive....pan friend chee cheong fun (flat rice noodles). With bits of chives and dried prawns, it was somehow plain yet tasty at the same time to me. Biting into the slightly chewy texture, I couldn't really figure why I like it more than I should. Ha ha ha...On the other hand, I am a big fan of Chee Cheong Fun. so, that might explain why.
My favourite Peking Duck-had several servings of this. The duck skin has very little fats on it, so that's good news for those who likes to indulge in some good food minus the fats :o) but that would also mean that it isn't as fragrant as the ones with fats!
Claypot Salmon with Mushrooms and Fu Chook ( Beancurd Skin). The gravy was a bit too starchy but otherwise, it was alright.
Char Siew Bao - BBQ Pork Steamed Bun was rather nice. Here's one broken into three parts. Me and my rule of three when it comes to taking photographs! ha ha ha....
Ma Lai Gou (Malay Kuih???) has always been a favourite of mine and the ones here are nice and not that sweet, which is good! But the nicest ones were from Ming Room, Bangsar Shopping Complex (which is also under the same Oriental Group as Noble House) but they were given a fancy name like Thousand Layer Sponge Custard.

"I went to this restaurant last night that was set up like a big buffet in the shape of an Ouija board. You'd think about what kind of food you want, and the table would move across the floor to it." - Steven Wright
