This is your buffet breakfast while staying at Shangri La Al Waha. It is good with several options. Omelet station, fruits, cereal, selections of juices, cheeses, poultry, breads, desserts. I also had lunch and the Lamb chops were great. Enjoy.

Very average meals. Not bad at all, but keep your expectation down. Problem was the servise, to clean the table after you finnished the meal took so long. Don't sit outside, buffet is far away. Tou have to walk too much.
