Great selection and great tasting food. The buffet offers a selection of Western and Asian food from mild to spicy, so most palettes can be satisfied.

Food was good but portions were child-sized. Went home hungry. Expected the staff to have better english, too. "Washroom" was out of there vocabulary.

Description
Imagine a theatre play where the cooks perform as your personal chefs and cook every meal to meet the requirements of your very own taste buds. This interactive dining concept, successfully launched in key international gateway cities like Hong Kong, Singapore, Kula Lumpur, Sydney and Shanghai, has now made its first appearance in Dalian.
i Café, warm and cosy but contemporary in decor, is the trademark of the innovative Hong Kong interior design house, Steve Leung Designers. The restaurant appeals with warm organic earth tones and textures and modern granite food cooking stations. The outdoor garden, which can be seen through the large glass facade running through the entire restaurant, will continue to add natural views and serenity to the restaurant’s ambience.

With a seating capacity of 186, i Café is located on level one. i Café opens daily from 6 a.m. to midnight and serves breakfast, lunch, dinner as well as à la carte orders. The interactive cooking dining arena with six “action packed” cooking stations, serve local Dalian seafood, deli, noodle, stir-fried, barbecue, ice cream teppan and wonderful desserts. Together, the cooking stations create a vibrant visual impact and sense of anticipation among guests. A private dining room for 12 guests provides the perfect venue for special occasions and important business meals.
