Atrium Buffet Review

The Atrium buffet is overseen by executive chef Christopher Hori, who has worked in some of the world’s most exclusive and well-known places, including Soho House Group, OXO Tower Brasserie, Jefferson, Jean-Georges, and Waldorf Astoria.

The food is fresh and of excellent quality and not the standard buffet fare. It’s great value for money if you enjoy seafood, as there are plenty of choices, including oysters, mussels, prawns, clams, crab claws, squid, sushi and sashimi.

One of the best food stations is the Asian, which typically includes Cantonese BBQ pork, Peking Duck, crispy pork belly, chicken wings, curries, sweet and sour, noodles, and Dim Sum. The Western station includes pasta, fish, pie, roast meats, Yorkshire puddings, and trimmings.

There is also a huge range of antipasto, salads, and cheeses.

Of course, no buffet is complete without the dessert station, which includes cakes, pannacotta, crumble, cupcakes, tarts, ice cream, a chocolate fountain, and lollies. The guava panna cotta and red velvet cheesecake were delicious, as were the churros. Our daughters loved the mango sorbet.

I defy you to leave there without a full stomach!

We have also had the Atrium Breakfast a few times, which has plenty of food options. There’s a huge choice of yoghurt, cereals, Miso Soup, bread selections, cold platters, fresh fruit, Dim Sum, hot Asian dishes, typical “English” breakfast items, and an assortment of bakery items.

It is one of the best breakfast buffets in Perth.

Epicurean vs Atrium

Epicurean and Atrium are both premium buffet restaurants in the Crown complex – Atrium is part of the Crown Metropol and Epicurean is in the Crown Towers.

Both restaurants offer seafood and a mix of cuisines. Epicurean is slightly more expensive and has a better ambience.

My thoughts

As mentioned, the Atrium buffet has been our go-to restaurant for family celebrations. We all enjoy seafood, Asian cuisine, and delicious desserts. However, now our daughters are over thirteen, it is expensive. I’ve noticed the prices have been steadily increasing too.

It’s always busy, so obviously, people are happy to pay the price.

Where to stay near the Atrium Restaurant Perth

Of course, when dining at the Atrium, staying at one of the Crown hotels makes sense. We like the Crown Towers the best and then Crown Metropol. We weren’t impressed with the Crown Promenade, but it is the cheapest of the three.

We stay here every year for a staycation as it’s one of the best hotels in Perth and book through Booking.Com most of the time for their competitive prices, ease of booking, and cancellation policy.

Make the most of your Crown experience and stay a night at this luxurious resort.

Helicopter ride over Perth

For a true feeling of Perth, take a scenic six-minute flight over Perth city, departing from the gardens of the iconic Crown Towers. You’ll take in the city’s highlights, including Optus Stadium, Matagarup Bridge, Elizabeth Quay, Kings Park and the Swan River. 

Tours near Crown Perth

If you are visiting Perth from interstate or overseas, why not combine your Crown Buffet with a tour of our city?

We enjoyed the Perth Explorer Hop On Hop Off Bus, which stops at Crown Perth. It’s an easy and budget-friendly way to explore Perth. Just hop off when you wish to check out the attractions that interest you, and when you’re on board, listen to recorded narration about the city’s major sights.

    • We find it pricey too and, like you, only go on special occasions. We make the most of special promotions too like kids eating free. Unfortunately, ours turn 13 soon so we won’t be able to use that one any more 🙁

  1. Food is wonderful. Staff indifferent, we always thank wait staff, NO RESPONSE. Server on dessert , no eye contact, smile or a response to our thank you. $10 for coffee, surely that could be part of the buffet. 45 mins before next sitting, being harassed to finish up so staff could set up. Spoilt what should have been a good day

    • Thank you so much for your honest review of the Atrium buffet in Perth. I’m sorry to read that you had a bad experience with staff at the restaurant (I hope this is not the way they are heading as we also received poor service on our last stay at the Crown Perth). A$10 is expensive for a coffee, even for Perth, and I think they should be included in the price too.

      It’s a shame that they do sittings now, that never used to be the case and you had all night to enjoy your meal. We haven’t found the timings an issue though (although maybe we eat fast lol).

      I would send them an email for feedback – I did this for my last stay and received a reply. Although it didn’t change anything, at least the hotel manager was aware of the problem.

      Again, thank you for taking the time to review this restaurant, I appreciate it.

  2. I’ve booked for mid December and was told it was$75 each person when I said um no it’s stated $58 I was told no1st to 31st December is considered festive season. Really it’s two weeks from Xmas. Burswood atrium need to state on their pages it was a shock

    • I must admit this happened to us too. We booked the Atrium for a birthday for the first weekend in December, not even thinking there would be a festive menu as it wasn’t close to Christmas. Also, when we stay for my birthday (after Christmas), we have to pay it too. The worst part is, none of us eat any of the “festive” menu.
