Good For Solo
The chinese food in Qingdao was great, but it can grow tiring over time. The Hotel Equatorial had the best buffet in town. The hotel is right across Hong Kong Middle Rd. from the Carrefour. Turn left from the oversized lobby to enter the restaurant. The large bay windows let you watch the people and the main road through downtown Qingdao.
The buffet includes several soups, a salad bar with dressing and toppings, fried foods, dumplings, (westernized) chinese food, sushi, seafood, meat and an assortment of sweets, cakes and fresh fruit. The buffet was about 60 RMB per person, but a 3rd person could eat for free. So if you have 3, lets say 40 RMB/ person. It was worth it and its a nice change of pace from everyday chinese cooking.
Unique Quality: Please note that I lived very close to this hotel once I moved downtown, so I never stayed in any of the rooms. I did eat there about 7 or 8 times though. The price per person that I'm marking is for the BUFFET ONLY and in US dollars.
Directions: Downtown at JiaLeFu bus stop. (Across from the Carrefour)
