In summary this restaurant buffet is excellent with a wide selection of food, which should satisfy everyone. Of particular note was the fresh made pasta. Service is very good. It is a little expensive, however you are in an iconic hotel. Also you can play a game of snooker there which is very good. All in all would definitely recommend... More

You pay for the setting, which is fine. Raffles Hotel is pretty unique. Food was OK but not exceptional. Choice was good. Lobster, oysters (very nice) but you do not cook those! Meat was OK. Tender but taste was limited. Serving large volumes in buffet format is always a challenge. It was good but expensive for good. Champagne was free... More

A few tips to start with. Champagne brunch is on Sunday from 12pm onwards and comes with a price of course. It is so worth it. Make sure to book in advance and if you are just visiting, make this one of the to-do list of your trip. The buffet line is absolutely one of the best I have experienced... More

My son is on the moderately autism spectrum. He is just like Mount St. Helens volcano. Any outburst from him usually ends up in a catastrophic manner. This is our first buffet dinner with him.
