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.

I visited this place with some local friends. The buffet was unbelievable. Indian, Chinese, European, Japan and other Asian food in best quality. The service was great, the room very nicely decorated. Also the desert buffet way just great. If you like variety, this is the place to go. Have also a look into the hotel hall which is simply...

Wide selection. I especially liked the BBQ stuff out in the patio. They have a carvery section. With Morton's next door the beef isn't too shabby. As for the dessert - the waffles are amazing!!!! Freshly made on the spot with a choice of toppings. I love the combo of waffles and icre cream.

Recently we spent some time over the weekend in Singapore and stayed at the Mandarin Oriental. We had twice breakfast and dinner at the Melt restaurant. It is a quite busy restaurant, especially over the weekends. I would not recommend it for a special event but if you are with the family and you like to enjoy food, it is... More

Fantastic food, great taste worth the money. Our waiter went out of his way to bring us special extras to try that complimented our food. Lacking is the atmosphere, more like a a big breakfast room in a hotel rather than a soft, quiet place to dine. Best to sit outside in the garden for less people or in the... More

Discovered this restaurant on our last trip to Singapore and enjoyed the food. Opted for the a la carte again to avoid over-eating in what appeared to be a sumptuous buffet. Enjoyed the lobster spring rolls, Hokkien Mee and Nasi Goreng. We were looking at perhaps sharing a dessert with coffee when the lovely bubbly waitress brought us complimentary small... More

This is an extravagant and upscale buffet that will cost you about S$100 with taxes and service charge or more per person should you decide to tip your wait staff. You'll get a wide selection of local Singapore ethnic (Chinese, Indian and Malay) and international food. I particularly enjoyed the lobster laksa; the restaurant chef nailed this. There is a...

We were there for the buffet dinner and its horrible. Food not replenish. Poor grade salmon sashimi. The cold lobster was dry and tasteless. The pasta counter took ages to cook my order and it came out so salty, it was inedible. The service was so poor that if I were to elaborate on it, there will not be enough... More

The breakfast buffet was extensive and included in the price of the room. The evening buffet price was a bit expensive but the a la carte menu was suitable and the staff were very attentive.
