Hard Rock Hotel, Batu Ferringhi – Most Affordable Seafood Buffet In Town

Call me selfish or what, I was initially a bit reluctant to share out this post. It is not due to any negative factor, instead I am afraid that after sharing this I will not be able to secure a place for myself when I go for their buffet. So far, I have not met any buffet in town that offers such a great variety of seafood and at an attractive of price of RM99 nett per adult and RM59 nett per child. For those of you who are able to get a better offer than this and with much more varieties, please do not hesitate to let me know and I will make sure to provide a full coverage of that place.

Smoked Salmon Salad with Avocado is one of the great options under the appetizers selection. Crispy texture, fresh and vibrant salad packed with wholesome ingredients. It tasted slightly sweet with a tangy touch.



Best way to enjoy the delicious taste of fresh seafood is to have it chilled. Savor the goodness of Boiled Prawn, Mussel, Bamboo Clams, Scallops and Oysters, with accompaniments of tabasco, lemon, cocktail dressing and shallot vinaigrette.



At the soup section, the Prawn & Shellfish Bisque is one should not to be missed. Served with assorted bread, this delicious soup is guaranteed to leave you craving for more.


The other highlights from this section are the Deep Fried Prawn with Nestum and Chawan Mushi Unagi.

What’s great about this seafood buffet is its many food stations. Besides the Dim Sum and Yong Tau Fu Noodle station, you will also find a Teppanyaki Grill station that offers a portion of Teppanyaki Seafood. The Slipper Lobster, Chicken, Prawn, Yaki Udon and Beef with Goma Sauce are not to be missed.


From the Chinese Craving station, feast on the Roasted Chicken, Lamb Char Stew, Chicken Char Siew with condiments of taste.



Satisfy the sweet craving with some freshly made Soya Bean Milk with Glutinous Ball & Gingko Nut, Green Tea Cheesecake, Assorted French Pastries and Red Bean Jelly.



The spirit of Hard Rock Team. They really rock the seafood buffet in Penang. Special thanks Patrick Soon of Moon Spell Studio for the lovely photos.


Overall, this is currently the most affordable and the widest variety of Seafood buffet that I know of in Penang. The taste of the food is good and the range of the food is extensive. Please do not tell my mother that I ate too much at this buffet.
