Origins offered a wide varitey of food, albeit at a high price ($60). The menu included prime rib, a Thai curry bar, pasta bar, and other entree-like dishes to try. Additionally, there was a salad station that featured hommus, dried fruit, house salads, various cheeses, and sliced meats. Lastly, the dessert station had plenty of small cakes, pastries, and fruit... More

Starting with the ambiance... as it was the best at origins.. You can see the F1 track from the outdoor seating.. The food was also equally good... Though its a little costly, the ambiance, view makes it worth trying for occasions...

Expensive nighttime buffet, but very good. Excellent selection of food cooked to order on the barbecue. Good breakfast, plenty of choice, but does get busy between 9.30 and 10.30am, nice sitting outside looking onto the circuit whilst having breakfast, quite unique.

Poor selection of food at dinner and plates not refurbished so we were waiting for food and breakfast was overcrowded with people in queues and bumping each other. Not at all a pleasant experience!!

Usually we keep dining at origins for special occasions because they never go wrong regarding food and service. Today we're celebrating a very special occasion,but, unfortunately every thing was wrong. Salads were just ok ,although there was too much lemon in tabouli ( I wonder if the chef tasted it before serving!). Variety of main dishes is very limited and... More

Origins has outdone itself once again by breaking through the norm and offering an out of the box concept of bringing street foods from all over the world in one spectacular smorgasbord of a buffet! Whether you're craving Nasi Goreng from Thailand, Chicago-style hotdog, Quesadilla from Mexico or just plain Shawarma - they got you covered. Prepare for all the... More

This restaurant offers a very good breakfast. They have the best range of baked pastries and fruits etc. even their English Breakfast is very good. Good restaurant for smaller kids in the evenings as the other restaurants is a bit quieter
