A few weeks ago, a couple of friends and myself were invited to try out Niu, a new culinary experience by the people behind Vikings. It is located at the SM Aura Skypark right across Samsung Hall. When we arrived, we were greeted by the long line of elegantly dressed staff who showed us to our table.

The ambiance of Niu has "fine dining" written all over it

At Niu, you have the option of having food served on your table instead of walking around the buffet line, with the knowledgeable staff offering up recommendations based on what your preference is. And whatever your preference in cuisine is, chances are Niu has them. There's dimsum, sushi, cold cuts and cheeses, pasta, you name it.

Forgot what this is called but it tasted like heaven


 Pretty extensive drinks selection. Oh and they have alcoholic drinks as well.

Italian fare 
Make your own pasta

After 3 rounds or so, and after having tasted most of the fare that Niu had to offer (and what my tummy could accommodate), I would definitely recommend you guys try the place out. It's something out of the ordinary when it comes to buffet fare and it definitely left this foodie more than satisfied.

When it comes to desserts, Niu has got you covered as well.
Happy boys (and girl) and their happy tummies
