Vasco's Restaurant, Hilton Kuala Lumpur Dinner Buffet Review

January 22, 2020

Hi guys, today I'll be sharing all about Vasco's Restaurant at Hilton Kuala Lumpur's dinner buffet!


Vasco's is a restaurant located inside of Hilton KL which offers unique, all-day dining experiences. They do different themes every month, and this month the theme is Chinese New Year!

Last month their Christmas theme was chocolate, and I was actually quite interested to try it out. Since their new buffet menu theme is out, I decided to drop by with some friends for a a CNY get-together of our own.

My friends and I got there at 7.30pm and were led to our seats by the window.


I was kind of surprised because Vasco's was bigger than I expected! I always pass by but this was my first time dining here, so it was a nice surprise to see all the differemt food setions + the private seating areas.


The theme this month is Chinese New Year, and Vasco's actually transformed one of their stations into a huge lou sang spread!


I think it's a smart idea to do this because you can lou to your heart's content without making a mess in your seats!


All you have to do is tell the staff that you'd like to have a go at it, and they'll fix it up for you. If you come in a small group/alone and don't really want to do the whole tossing thing, you're also welcome to DIY and make your own lou sang.


Beside the lou sang station was the salad station:


Beside it was the sashimi/Iketeru station:


Iketeru is Hilton KL's Japanese restaurant, and I was surprised to see that they had a station here! Seeing this station totally made me think this buffet was worth it because its technically 2 restaurants in 1!


The sushi rolls were good + the sashimi was really fresh. I had 3 rounds of sashimi hahaha.


Right across the sashimi, you also have the option to get freshly fried tempura:


Next to it was the Indian section:


Their selection of dhals & curries matched really well with their naan, and some of my friends said they really enjoyed this section!


Next up we have the noodle section:


Which is connected to the fresh steamed fish:


Finally, after making one round of this section, we have some dishes from Chynna:


Chynna is Hilton KL's Chinese restaurant, and you can try 7 of their dishes here at Vasco's. Similar to how Iketeru had a station here, this station really impressed me and made me think this buffet's selection was super worth it.


Behind this section was the seafood station & the desserts:


The seafood was fresh, and the selection was not bad as well:


The dessert table had a few cakes and fruits, as well as a good selection of local desserts:


Lil note, the tau fu fa was nice, but it cannot compare to the world's best Tau Fu Fa in Funny Mountain (Ipoh) hahaha.

There was also a chef making fresh warm desserts like sesame balls & bread pudding at this station:


I really enjoyed the sesame balls, as well as the batik cakes!


Finally for desserts, here's their ice kacang/local desserts:


If you thought that was it, you're wrong! Vasco's has another station for western food, and the variety was quite good as well.


I'm sorry if I missed any dishes out, but that was a quick tour/view of Vasco's 2020 CNY menu!

Mid-way through our meal, we had another lousang because why not hahaha. This one we had by our table (on a separate platform) and it had some salmon sashimi.


We also had some of their fortune cookies for fun.


After 3 hours of dining, catching up and laughing, we ended the night super full and satisfied.

If you're wondering about the price, here's their full price list:

Buffet price:
(Effective 1st September 2018):

Buffet Breakfast:
Adult : RM 88.00 Nett per person
Child : RM 44.00 Nett per person 

Buffet Lunch:
Adult : RM 148.00 Nett per person
Child : RM 68.00 Nett per person 

Buffet Dinner:
Adult : RM 188.00 Nett per person
Child : RM 68.00 Nett per person



Personally, after dining at Vasco's, I would say RM188 is well worth the money. You get a nice selection of food from different cuisines which are all fresh, well-made and taste amazing. The service of the staff was pretty fast/welcoming/good, and their manager Mr Annuar was a very welcoming host. We dropped by multiple times and asked me if our meal was okay, and he was very informative when I asked him about Vasco's in general + about their CNY menu.

If you're in town or if you're staying at the Hilton, I would definitely recommend dropping by Vasco's for dinner!


And that's it for this post! I hope you guys found it helpful and informative.

Thanks for dropping by my blog, see ya in my next post!
