The Cove Restaurant at the Centara
Grande Resort has found a cure for terminal gourmet indecision!
Are you anything like me when it comes to choosing from a menu brimming with delectable temptations from starter to dessert? We spoilt children of the Internet Age are becoming increasingly prone to wanting “everything….all the time” it seems.When a lovely waitress approaches me with a broad smile and inquires what I would like to select from the delicious menu I am always tempted to say, “Well….everything actually.”
Panic not. The beautiful Centara Grande Resort nestled right on the sands of Karon Beach has come up with an excellent solution for this terminal case of dining indecision. Each evening they offer a differently-themed buffet at their delightful The Cove Restaurant, each one featuring a veritable cornucopia of wondrous food from which to choose.
Each night a huge selection of dishes is laid out around the “grazing tables” so that happy guests can take their time (and their insatiable appetites) from station to station and load up time and again on an abundance of goodies.
From soups to salads, to pasta and pizzas; from roasts, steaks, sea foods and fish, to curries and Thai favorites; and from tempting desserts of every stripe to a marvelous selection of cheeses and breads…..it is all there and more.
It’s an indecisive diner’s dream come true and the greatest thing about it is that it’s all very reasonably priced.
Each week there are no less than five separate buffets from which to choose rotating day by day……….
Welcome to Thailand offers fabulous local fare from all the main regions of the Kingdom for just 790 ++baht a head
Silk Road offers panoply of vibrant Asian dishes from the main regional cuisines from all around the continent for just 890 ++baht a head.
Mediterranean Night showcases a selection from every major cuisine around the southern Mediterranean Sea……Greek, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Turkish, Moroccan and North African dishes joust for attention and there are even influences from Germany France, Switzerland and Holland all for just 890 ++baht a head.
Steakhouse Night is of course for the trenchermen amongst us and really is well worth starving yourself for, as the choice is quite staggering….and I mean that literally! Priced at 990 ++baht a head.
Seafood Safari is the final option and is most appropriate as the lovely Cove Restaurant’s outdoor teEach nightrrace is within earshot of the crashing waves on Karon Beach. All the tiger prawns, lobster, blue crabs, mussels and local fish arrive as if they have actually swum up to the tables and so the proffered denizens of the deep are indelibly fresh and succulent. Just 990 ++baht a head.
As if all this choice of food weren’t enough for the undecided hedonist, The Cove Restaurant also throws in a nightly show of singing, dancing and Asian cultural themes energetically performed on a raised outdoor stage surrounded by limped reflective pools of water at the end of the outdoor dining terrace. Or if, as was the case when we dined there, the heavens open and deluge the enthusiastic performers, the show is performed inside the buffet hall itself.
It seems that the show, whether theatrical or gourmand, must and does indeed go on every night at The Cove. Dinner reservations for the buffet theme nights are recommended.
