    I went to the Laurel at the Century hotel yesterday – there was definitely *not* a morning buffet. I was extremely disappointed, as I was hoping this would be a good opportunity to try all types of dim sum without paying for a lot of separate dishes. Is there one specific Laurel location that has the buffet? Can you confirm if this still exists at any of the locations now? Thank you!

      Jay, sorry to disappoint you. From what I’ve heard, the morning buffet is no longer available in any of the Laurels now. There has been a mistake and I’m sorry if I have confused you. If you want to try the buffet, try the Shang Palace in Shangri-La hotel on Sunday. It’s about 118RMB per person.
