Dusit Thani Basix Buffet

Dusit Thani Basix Food Combination

August 1, 2011

This will be the actual dining experience at Dusit Thani Basix Buffet because the previous post on Basix was to show you what they have on display.

Dusit Thani Basix Cold Cuts

Cold Cuts

You can choose where you want ham, chicken, tenderloin and many more. Each of these has their own sauce that compliments the cut very well. For example, Ham and pineapple sauce. Yum Yum!

Dusit Thani Basix Maki and Sushi

Maki and Sushi

Nothing special on these. No sashimi (although I won’t eat that if there was :D )

Dusit Thani Basix Tempura


Tempura… not so good because it was more breading than prawn :(

Dusit Thani Basix Tandoori


I saw “meat” being hanged and there was an Indian Chef waiting for customers. I approached him and asked for more details on what he was cooking. He explained to me that he cooks the meat (eg. chicken, fish, lambchop) into a tandoori (an oven where the heat from the charcoal inside would cook the meat and also being used to make their bread).

So I tried some and he also suggested to eat it with their bread (naan bread). I don’t know how to eat it with bread so I ate them separately. The dish also comes with three sauces (lime, peppermint and I forgot the last one).

Dusit Thani Basix Mussels in Coconut Milk

Mussels in Coconut Milk

I didn’t bother with the other dishes as I was excited with the main ones (see below) but I had to feature this one, Mussels in coconut milk because their combination was very delicious. I found myself scraping the leftover coconut milk in the plate after I had finished eating the mussel.

Dusit Thani Basix Grilled Lambchops

Grilled Lambchops

Yum Yum! I have this notion that lamb chops are supposed to be expensive so they are always in my plate on buffets. The lambchop tasted like normal lambchop (lamb has this distinct taste that’s different from pork and beef). But still good that I went back for another serving. Lambchops are eaten with mint sauce but I haven’t tried it.

Dusit Thani Basix Grilled Salmon

Grilled Salmon

A healthy and delicious dish. Don’t let the picture fool you because this was a big serving. The grilled version is much better than their other version of salmon (forgot how it was cooked) because in the grilled version, there’s lesser fat and oil.

Dusit Thani Basix Grilled Shrimp

Grilled Shrimp

Yum Yum! not much comment here :D

Dusit Thani Basix Roast Striploin

Roast Striploin

The main event! If my brother were here, he would simply order this one till he was full. I liked how they cooked this one (medium well done) because it was tender and juicy. I would suggest that you eat it to maximize the deliciousness while it is hot else it would loss its appeal.

Dusit Thani Basix Butter Garlic Shrimp

Butter Garlic Shrimp

If you remember the fresh seafood pictures from the Dusit Thani Basix Buffet Display post, then let me show you what happens after you ask the chefs to cook it. For this one, I was not that pleased because I couldn’t taste the garlic very well. But the shrimp was very fresh so it was very tasty.

Dusit Thani Basix Baked Mussels

Baked Mussels

Baked Mussels with cheese! The cheese wasn’t that “yummy” but its passable. I liked the coconut milk version (see above) better.

Dusit Thani Basix Crepe


A bit disappointing. The crepe was already cooked before hand and the chef wasn’t skillful enough in packing the fruits inside of the crepe. I just ate it for the sake of no leftovers.
