Italian Buffet at On Top
Looking for a unique buffet in Patong? Sample authentic Italian favourites, including freshly made pasta, creamy risotto, delicious antipasto and handcrafted pizza varieties at the Italian Buffet at On Top Rooftop Pool & Bar every Monday & Thursday from 6:30-10:30PM.
The Italian Buffet Night at On Top is a real delight. A wonderful spread of fresh Italian flavours is complemented by an ample wine selection. The in-house band is a nice touch and really sets the mood for a relaxed evening by pumping out a cannon of recognisable tunes.
After taking in the sights, we make our way to the buffet to take in everything on offer. I’m impressed with the antipasto section and quickly pile my plate with a variety of cheeses, olives, sun-dried tomatoes as well as salami and ham. All these goodies are extremely fresh and make a good induction into the buffet, which is fully stocked with Italian delights. I move onto a freshly made pasta sauce of carbonara with bacon to accompany my rigatoni. The pizza is quickly brought out, and I choose a slice with Parma ham and rocket. While the pizza is tasty, the crust is a bit too thin for my liking (but will delight those who seek the genuine thin-crust pizza). Last, but not least, we sample the desserts. The tiramisu is rich with the bold flavour of espresso and, without a doubt, my favourite of the desserts offered.
The Italian Buffet at On Top is excellent value. Priced at only THB650+++ per person, it is very affordable, while children between the ages of 4-12 eat for half price.
Located on the 7th floor of the Swissôtel Resort, On Top Rooftop Pool & Bar is a hidden gem in Patong. The venue commands excellent views over the neighbourhood below and is a charming place to catch up with friends over dinner and a few drinks. Parking in front of the Swissôtel Resort is scarce, so best to take a taxi or public transport if possible.
