Business hours: 6am to 1am daily.
The wide array of dishes being offered becomes apparent even before you step through the front door, as a number of stalls have been set up just outside the Cinnamon Coffee House entrance.
The chefs manning these stalls offer a variety of treats that are prepared à la minute, such as yong tau foo, apam balik with a choice of three flavours, and ais kacang with cendol.
Inside the award-winning Cinnamon Coffee House, there are so many sections for different cuisines that diners may have trouble even deciding where to start.
Some of the sections include the sushi and sashimi counter, pasta counter, Chinese food, Indian dishes, Western and international cuisine, as well as a large choice of unique traditional Malay fare.
But according to One World Hotel executive chef Dave Teoh, the whole roasted lamb is one of the highlights of the buffet. The standard formula of serving it with mint sauce and potato wedges works very well.
For a change, diners may be interested to know that Cinnamon Coffee House will replace the whole roasted lamb with whole roasted deer on Saturday nights.
Teoh also said the apam balik was one treat that diners would not want to miss. This Malaysian favourite is made to order by a chef manning a stall outside the main entrance.
The ever-popular chicken and beef satay also has a nearby counter that serveslemang, ketupat and serunding, delicacies that many other eateries may have overlooked.
While most of the main dishes are delicious in their own right, diners really ought to save some room in their stomachs for the impressive selection of desserts.
Along with 20 varieties of assorted Malay kuih, the dessert counter offers many types of cakes and tarts that taste as good as they look.
The chocolate fountain with marshmallow skewers is also bound to attract both the young and young- at-heart, but the fried ice cream is a must-try for those who have never had it.
This treat consists of a scoop of ice cream encased in bread, which is deep-fried quickly to create a warm and crispy exterior while keeping the cold ice cream fully intact.
The Aneka Selera Kayanganku Ramadan buffet promotion is only available for dinner between 6.30pm and 10.30pm daily until Aug 8.
The promotion is priced at RM128++ per adult while children aged four to 12 eat at half price.
