Good Buffets !

Recommended Posts

Merchant Court offers a good buffet spread - Got Fried Ice-Cream, Oysters, Durian paste and many other good stuff. But must book early, otherwise have to sit outdoor or totally no seats.

If able to afford even more expensive, like $40 to 50+, Shangrila and Rix Carlton are excellent! Mandarin Hotel's 3M or something (next to swimming pool) has a nice ambience and I like the spread too, but my friends said not so nice......then there is Marriott also not bad.......

If talking abt cheaper buffet, Sakura offers quite affordable and good buffet, they have branches in Clementi, Jurong East, Toa Payoh and Somerset.

For Japanese buffet, I prefer Hoshi at IMM, $32 per person and the sashimi are all quite fresh and good.

I've never tried the buffet restaurant 'Parish' at Ngee Ann City and Suntec City, are these outlets worth of money to spend? I heard it's quite expensive?

Last time, one cafeteria specialised for Nonya Buffet Food at former hotel Apollo, now they called Novotel Apollo Hotel was quite reasonable in price and good food. But now never heard about it once the hotel changing management?

Any brothers here can recommend GOOD BUFFETS ??

There is a forum talking about our local buffet food. Personally, if you are a ‘good & big eater’ than it’s worth it ….., for small eater maybe on loosing side lah.

wow, that's very expensive, $68 +++ almost $85 per person, how much oyster, sashimi, steak and other expensive culinary items could be eaten within the dining time ....?? is that worth of money?

Can try Hawaiian BBQ all you care to eat at $10++ after midnite.

It's at the end of Marine Cove, East Coast Parkway, that MacDonald's there...

Normal hours is $21++ al fresco style, good veg spread, and unlimited BBQ - they serve to your table. Drinks extra.

FAR getting despo for membership numbers again.  Maybe this time without Raffles Hotel on their list they may get less brickbats. 

Shall we go makan someday soon, do a 2-week-2-eat thingie?  Heheheh.

I like 10 at Claymore. The spread is limited but the food is good. It felt slightly cheaper than other hotels too.

 

Years back I would say the Triple 3 at Meritus Mandarin was the best, but standards have dropped noticeably.

Vienna International Seafood & Teppanyaki Buffet Restaurant.

Nah , quality dropped a lot . The steaks are cold and tough , the 'bread puff soup' is cold and tasteless and the sashimi isn't fresh .

dun bother to try buffet dtown at raffle city...expensive , suck aptitude of the service manager and crowd with noise ....

spend $200 with unhappy moood....

The last time I went there was good though . Price is high yeah , 50 per person , but I think for the choices it's worth it , esp if you can eat a lot . Crowd is something you'd expect cause it's buffet and for me , it was dinner time . But the food was good , noise isn't really a problem .

1)  Vienna International Seafood & Teppanyaki Buffet Restaurant  (United Square at level B1)  $27.80

Tel:  6254 6686 / 6253 1696

Went there a couple of years ago, so I do not know if things have changed or not.  The meats (beef, lamb) were cold and hard.  Most items were mediocre standard, so I will not go there again.

 

2)  Mushroom Pot  (Orchard Point, level 4 – must walk through OG Dept Store to take the lift)

Tel: 6733 9910

I went there a couple of months ago.  My original intention was to try its High Tea at 3 pm.  It costs $14 on weekdays & $17 on weekends.  However, I wrongly uttered “Buffet” to the waiter and was shocked at the bill of $50 for 2 persons.  Then it dawned on me that I should have said “High Tea” instead.  So even though it was as late as 4 pm, they still serve buffet lunch, which is just steamboat meat & veggie items with very limited choices off the ala carte menu.  But these limited choices tasted yummy.  So next time I would go again but must say “High Tea”.

 

3)  Aqua  Marine  (Marina Mandarin Singapore, Raffles Boulevard at level 4)

Tel:  68451112 (direct line)

Weekday buffet lunch  $69 net

Weekends Tunch (l1 am – 4 pm) $48++

I went for the Tunch yesterday.  The yummy items are black pepper beef steak, mutton rib, salad prawn, spicy salad chicken shreds, spicy jellyfish, mussels, laksa, kueh pie tee & durian pengat cake.  Fruits are abundant.  The gado-gado & rojak are ok.  The asparagus soup tastes just like mushroom soup (with milk).  However, for Japanese items, there is neither sashimi nor oysters but just some sushi items & cold noodle to be dipped in shoyu sauce.  Very full, so I gave ice kacang/chendol the miss.  The ice cream (both the yam and corn) are below standard.

 

4)  Suki-ya Japanese Restaurant

Tampines Mall #B1-02       Tel:  6789 6166

112 Katong  #03-05           Tel:  6636 3789

Marina Square  #02-138F  Tel:  6337 9969

Buffet lunch $17++ Mon – Thu ;  $18++ Fri – Sun

buffet dinner $21++ Mon – Thu ; $23++ Fri – Sun

I went to the I12 Katong branch.  Good only if you are an avid meat eater (steamboat), so help yourself with lots of meat & veggies.  Choices of other items from the menu (included as part of the buffet) were very limited.  I will not go there again.
 

5)  Tarafuku Japanese Fish Market and Restaurant  (313@Somerset  #B3-31)

Tel: 66340889

Buffet lunch  $22.15++ daily,  $19.9++ (aged 60 & above);   $20++ & $18++ respectively for Public Hols & Eve

Buffet dinner $28++ daily,  $22++ (aged 60 & above);   $30 & $24 respectively for PH & Eve

I went for the cheapest, i.e. weekday lunch last year.  Was pleased with the quality especially the fish items.  Good value for money.

 

6)  Kiseki Japanese Restaurant  (Orchard Central at level 8)

Tel:  6736 1216

Buffet  lunch: $19.80 (weekdays),  $26.80 (weekends, PH & eve)

Buffet dinner:     $29.80  (Mon – Thu),  $32.80  (Fri, weekends, PH & eve of PH)

This year after Chinese New Year, I went there on a weekday lunch to avoid weekend crowds but still, there was a large crowd - very noisy.  Another good value for money restaurant just like the above.

 

7)  Han Geun Doo Geun Korean Restaurant  (Chinatown Point  #02-35)

Buffet Lunch $24.90;  Buffet dinner $34.90

Tel:  6538 2775

I went for its lunch last month.  There is steamboat plus sufficient choices of items off the ala carte menu.  The meats were good and so was the ginseng chicken (very meaty & yummy).  The other items were satisfactory.  The only snag is that when we ordered our last ala carte item (included as part of the buffet), the waiter said “no more stock”.  So we ordered another item but after waiting for one century, nothing came from the kitchen.  So I learnt that restaurants may claim that they have lots of varieties to serve but they can cut down the choices but saying that the items have been “sold out”.  So I shall never return to this restaurant.

Tiffany Cafe is at Furama City Centre (i.e. beside People's Park Complex). It's ok, not as good as Furama Riverfront, which has much more pleasant ambience and food selection e.g. Riverfront has cheese and more impressive salad counter. :thumb:

Just happen to try tiffany recently. Its not a bad spread, the roast beef was delicious. They have a 1 for 1 promo going on, so it was pretty worth it.

Usual spread of jap, local with a assortment of cakes. The durian penyet crumble was sinful but yummy.

Went to Seasonal Taste at Asia Tower (where new Westin Hotel is located) last Sat. The ambience was fantastic, tables are far apart from each other, window view was great, food is international spread, which is good too. If you join the SPG membership which is free (please join prior to going there), you are entitled to a 25% discount of the bill. I paid $54 nett per head. Would recommend the place
