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.

We celebrated my birthday with dinner at Melt. When my SO made the reservations, they asked if we were celebrating a special occasion and he told them that it was my birthday. When we were ready for our dessert, they presented me with a small chocolate cake (maybe a four inch square cake?) that was very good. What we liked... More

I had dinner at Melt. The buffet was nice with a good selection. The food was good but not as nice as expected for the Mandarin Oriental. The service was very good and the staff was excellent.

Good service but at 54 sing dollars it's not worth it. Go to the shopping mall next to it through the interior stairway and have all your meals for this price not just breakfast and you won't melt away.

You can skip lunch having breakfast here with spread consisting of cold cuts, lots of meat, rice, noodles, porridge, desserts...nicely cooked and laid out for your pick.

The a-la-carte Food was reasonable but nothing to shout home about. The service in the first half was outstanding. They may have had a shift change as our original waiter then vanished and we struggled for service. Very disappointing as I am big fan of the MO group.

Spread across five different stations, it is a breakfast to die for--or go right back to sleep after overeating. About S$50 per person so not inexpensive but go very hungry or feel guilty. Amazing choices and very good service.

We decided to go Melt the World Cafe for our Christmas buffet dinner. The elegant hotel was decked up beautifully for Christmas, and this added a festive touch to the usual sleek, chic settings. The multi-cultural buffet spread was satisfying, and I was happy to see the important things such as turkey, pork knuckles, logcake etc that contributed to the... More

Fantastic daily breakfast buffet which really set us up for the day. We ate there the evening we arrived and felt that we'd had a gastronomic adventure from around the world. Excellent friendly staff who greeted us by name each morning.
