Li Li’s Dimsum Buffet at Hyatt Hotel and Casino

Li Li at Hyatt Hotel and Casino

What comes into mind when you hear the word Dimsum? For me, it was limited only to siomai, xiao long bao and hakao. I consider myself a newbie in the world of dimsum and this dining experience at Li Li’s Dimsum buffet is going to change all that.

Li Li is a Chinese restaurant at Hyatt Hotel and Casino. This was inspired by a real life person bearing the same name. The restaurant is modeled after a residential apartment where you can dine in their living room, library, and wine cellar to name a few. Aside from offering ala carte dishes, Li Li also offers buffet lunch.

Here are the prices for Lili’s Dimsum Buffet.

Item Dates Available Price
Eat all You can Dimsum Monday to Saturday
12pm to 3pm
PHP 888 Net
Yum Cha (Eat all You can Dimsum +Cantonese offerings) Sunday
1130am to 3pm
PHP 1650 Net

 

You might be thinking that it’s expensive to pay PHP 888 for eat all you can siomai, that you can buy outside for PHP 25 / 4pcs, but allow me to show you what we had and I’ll let you decide if the dimsums at Lili are worth PHP 25 only.

At the buffet, you don’t need to stand as you will be given a menu. Just tick the dimsum you want to order and they will deliver it to you.

So what do you think? Is it worth PHP 888?

I would say YES!!! without any hesitation.

But wait… there’s more!

Did you know that you can avail of a complimentary Hyatt Hotel and Casino Manila’s signature Guava iced tea (a drink worth PHP 300 for free!) …

…by simply mentioning my blog’s name,Stop! Look! and Capture”?

Just call (02) 247 8666 to make reservations and tell them that you read about the buffet from this blog.

There are still other items in the menu that I haven’t tried such as pork buns, spare ribs, and chicken feet. They also have non dimsum dishes such as congee, stir fried vegies, chicken and roasted BBQ pork… Note that this is still part of the PHP 888 net from Mon to Sat.

I really enjoyed eating at Lili’s that I’m already planning my next visit here.
