The buffet here is incredible! It's expensive, but the choice is second to none! It gets very busy and there seemed to be locals dining in it too, which is a good sign.

We went to Line today on the recommendation of friends. Stepped inside and hearts dropped instantly. The atmosphere was somewhat akin to a grubby canteen. It reminded me of a trip to Guilin in 1990. Noisy, and grubby with chipped laminate tables, paper placemats and packet hand towels a la local coffee shop. Food was very good by comparison. Many... More

I enjoyed myself at the line buffet lunch, loved the drinks station where u could get nice teh tarik and hazelnut lattes, many different kind of teas, dessert station and cold seafood station was great too. The roasts are also nice. The rest of the cooked food were not really memorable since I usually dont eat those for buffet.

There was a very large selection, but the buffet featured everything you would expect to see...nothing really out of the ordinary.

Amazing variety for a Sunday brunch. Choose great food from more than 15 different cuisines that are prepared in front of you. The seafood station with oysters and lobster is a great start, but sure you have room for more. The salad bar and the Indian food are my favorites. The kids love the chocolate fountain. Make sure you reserve... More

Lots of variety. There's japanese, western, chinese and indian cuisine. We love the sashimi counter especially the scallop sashimi. Its plump and sweet. Perfect start to your meal.The oysters and cold prawns are great too. Good service and lovely ambience.

Food is good, with a nice variety of different cuisine. Plentiful of desserts and atmosphere was nice (plenty of foliage outside) although it was crowded during lunch hour. Could do more for service as there were mynahs eating from used cups outside the restaurant for quite a long time till a staff covered the cups up. Felt a little unhygienic... More

This was certainly one of the top addresses a few years back and from a recent experience it is clear that years have not been kind to this restaurant - if you can get through the reservation desk and get yourself understood, you're facing a totally chaotic brunch with terrible service (forget about getting a refill in less than 20...

The dinner buffet at the Line has has one of the biggest variety of Cuisines in a buffet in Singapore. Especially on the seafood night and when the alcohol buffet can be added on top you can't really ask for more. For the alcohol buffet they used to offer proseccos, white and red wine and Archipelago beer free flow for... More
