Life truly is magnifique when dining at Sofitel’s, Thyme 2 “Middle Eastern Feast” interactive restaurant. Walking into the venue is quite incredible, the exquisite architecture of the restaurant and Cuvee lounge bar make the location a unique fine dining experience! The best part is that the sprawling buffet offers plenty of healthy, sugar free options making Thyme 2 a guilt-free and delicious dining option.
Start your dining experience by diving into the delicious selection of antipasto, fresh wood baked breads, gourmet cheeses and delicious dips. The cold buffet offers a large variety of deli meats, smoked salmon and even freshly rolled sushi.
If making friends with salad is your thing, Thyme 2 is your venue. Choose between so many delicious and unique flavour combinations like Couscous and Chickpea Salad, Beetroot, Goats Cheese and Crouton salad, Beef, Eggplant and Tahini Salad, Fattoush Salad and Carrot & Onion Salad. They also very clearly label dietary information like NF, GF, DF etc. Whoever said you can’t make friends with salad was oh so wrong!
The variety of seafood was overwhelming! Fresh oysters, mussels, prawns, crumbed cyprus calamari and delicious baked barramundi! The quality and freshness of the seafood was top notch, you could almost taste the ocean! If your not a seafood lover there are plenty of other delicious and relatively healthy options such as slow cooked lamb, chickpea falafels, Baharat Chicken and Mansaf (Jordan goat curry).
Plenty of veggies to pair with your choice of protein including, steam vegetables, cauliflower bake, eggplant bake and roast vegetables – all cooked to perfection and paired perfectly with the tender meat or seafood on offer.
By the time you get to dessert, there isn’t much room for more. While the sugar laden desserts are tempting and presented to perfection, fresh fruit is on offer which is a massive plus.
This buffet without a doubt lives up to its name as one of Brisbane’s finest buffets. The wide variety of different food caters to all, even those with specific dietary requirements. High quality food, great service, and an overall exceptional dining experience!
