Nice buffet with plentiful choice. Especially enjoyed freshly cooked bolognaise. Smoke salmon for salad was big and tasty. Taste of mango was best here. I don't have sweet tooth so didn't enjoyed the sweets so much. Lettuce was a bit bitter.

Food is old and tasted dull. The food needs to improve. Hopefully they get this message because I know their can be room for improvements. The staff was excellent though paid a lot of attention to details.

What I love about Crimson is the warm welcome and service of their staff. The staff serving our table is corteous, special requests were accomodated. Food is good! The pizza with prosciutto and arugula is yummy! salad is good too.
