    Like many other hotel lobby restaurant, you can expect a feast of international buffets. Ranging from a selection of uncooked seafood such as prawns, oysters, and mussels, to a series of mains, as well as sides and desserts. Pretty much anything that you'll find in a standard hotel buffet, you'll find it here at Cititel Penang. The interior however, isn't as bright nor cheerful as it is rather dull. Having said that, the design is fairly modern and up to date, just don't expect too much from them. Service is great so they have that going for them.

Eat all you want with the vast array of appetizer, sides, mains and even desserts! Believe it or not, the display of food as well as the technique and method used are a lot better than their decor.
