Sokyo at the Star, Breakfast – Pyrmont

The Top Line: If the only thing stopping you is waking up at like 7am for the breakfast at Sokyo, that would be a stupid reason because this buffet is actually so good.

Now now, quit imagining those sausages, bacon, baked beans and horrible scrambled eggs you find at breakfast buffets at hotels that you usually see when you go travelling, where you are forced to eat at every day you’re there. Oh no no no…this is not like that. This is much, much better.


It was our first time at Sokyo so we weren’t exactly sure what to expect! Walking in, the interior was really nice – I would sayΒ premium, but then again, it was the Star and this was a place known for its fine dining so I guess it would be strange to expect anything less. The interior was really bright, despite the dark themed insides.

We decided to go all out and order the full continental buffet with an “a la carte” dish and a tea or coffee for $38 per person. No regrets, because the dishes were pretty good, as seen below. I really enjoyed the curry udon, although it did work to fill me up really quickly so perhaps next time it could be an option to just order the udon without the buffet? πŸ™‚

I forgot what this dish was…oops.
Eggs benedict

The selection of desserts at the buffet were sooo good – you’re looking at green tea muffins, black sesame muffins, yuzu muffins and orange & almond muffins. Mmm. They also had a nice selection of pastries, yoghurt, Japanese congee and … smoked salmon!! Oh my god the smoked salmon hit a weak spot for me and I could actually eat this for days … if that was an option.


Cute bottles filled with juice!

Honestly, I’m not usually a fan of buffets because they usually had a subpar selection of foods – but this, this was buffet done right.
