Description: With creativity and imagination we have transformed the dining experience. Chefs in show kitchens present a multi-cultural cooking theatre. At any time of the day select from cuisine ranging giant baskets of fruits bring bursts of colour; the wine bar itself is a vivid backlit pink. The space is transitionary, designed for changing moods from muted to energetic up to the fresh and airy garden views. You could dine here every night of the week and the only similarity in experience would be the excellent quality of the food.

The Sunday brunch at Melt in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Singapore, is pricey but worth the splurge. Fantastic international buffet with free flowing French champagne, South American wines, beer and cocktails. We particularly appreciated the outstanding service of Hooi Nat Meng, who was so attentive, and able to provide expert advice on all aspects of the food and beverages. She... More

Always a good time. The wait staff is top notch, not a single bad egg, ever. Amazing seafood and the craft beer selection rotates very often. They nailed the atmosphere and the kitchen is completely visible. Serious quality here.

We came to the weekday Melt international buffet for my birthday in August 2014, and my three friends and I were all extremely impressed with the service we received. We were the first ones to show up, and they were happy to show us through all the selections available. We were helped primarily by Santosh Kumar, the resident Indian chef,... More

Brought my bestie here for her birthday celebration. While cracking my brain for buffet, melt the world came into my first choice. And here, we came! Food spread again did not disappoint my guests and I. Oysters are replaced fast enough and fresh. Staff never failed to remind us to watch our steps while walking towards our seats. Clearing of...

We always have gathering in buffet hotel restaurant every 6 months and this is one of our best. We went there during my pregnancy, I cant eat raw food but the choice was spreadable. Very satisfied. As today, the price during lunch hour is about $100 per person. Please call them to make appointment.

We recently stayed at the Mandarin Oriental, and for four days had Breakfast at Melt. The selection of food in that restaurant is so extensive, you could go for weeks and not have the same thing twice. There are two rooms, with about four different stations with different foods, both Asian and European. The staff were super friendly and on... More
