Is it worth the money? Well, just think about this. One kg of D24 now is probably going for RM16-RM19 per kg depending on the quality. So buying 1 decent sized D24 alone would cost you around RM20 – that itself is already more expensive than the buffet!
However, don’t expect the durian served in the buffet to have the exact quality like those sold off-rack. I seriously hope you guys are not so naive into thinking that they’d be serving you grade AA, old tree, high mountain or super D24. OK? And since we were the first few to arrive, the workers were really free so they obliged my request to arrange the durian pulps nicely.
So if you do not get your durians as shown in the photos, PLEASE don’t complain. For those who want the durians to be served like this for photography or Instagram purpose, simply come earlier before the crowd swells. Asking nicely definitely helps too.
Now about the durians, I have to say they exceeded my initial expectations. I knew at least they won’t disappoint since it’s D24, and as lousy as D24 goes it’s still better than a lot of durian kampung.
What we had that day tasted A LOT better than what you could get from the random dodgy durian vendors. It was a mix of excellent (20%), good (60%) and OK (20%) quality and the overall experience was more than satisfying for a buffet.
As far as I know this is the only durian buffet in town and it’s bang for your bucks at only RM16/pax. All of us who came for it went home happy and I hope you will feel the same too.
From what I was told, the buffet will be available daily until the durian season ends, or when the price soars too high – whichever comes first. Lastly, ignore the pricing on the banner as it’s obviously an old one.
I was simply recommending them out of courtesy in case any of you have trouble looking for a reliable durian stall. Always exercise common sense and rights as a consumer.
If you feel that you have been duped because the durians are not up to your standard, then ask for exchange or refund. If you are buying in large amount then at least try the durian first before you pay!
