Buffet Lunch at Burswood

After the walk in Kings Park, we were all famished. Good thing too as lunch was a buffet with Martin and his wife. The good man suggested the Atrium restaurant in Burswood.

It was a little confusing for us tourists to find the restaurant. The GPS says we are at the place but there was no sign of Atrium. After scouting the area, I then realised that Atrium was in fact under the Intercontinental group. This means it was located in the atrium of Intercontinental Hotel at Burswood!


Buffet lunch on a Sunday costs AUD$39.50 and featured soups, salads, cold cuts, chilled seafood and both Western and Asian entres. Here's a shot of my plate. The Beef Medallions range from tender to tough, depending on which piece you took. I guess the constant heating didn't do it good. The Sauteed Mushrooms were delish! Small and flavourful, I had seconds. The white fish was also good with its soft, firm flesh and tangy salsa sauce.

On the whole, I found the food to be not too bad but good company instantly elevates the meal. Oh and we caught sight of a wedding held in the garden pavillion just beside the swimming pool. Sweet! :)

Thanks for the treat, Martin!

Chew On This: Burswood is an entertainment complex with theatres for performances and also includes a casino. Wanna win back what you just spent on lunch? It's either that or lose dinner money as well, if one plays! Haha.
