“Beautiful buffet, atmosphere to improve”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

I had dinner at the Line with some friends. What you can definitively say it the buffet is high class, various, very good, and you really have choice for every taste (chinese, japanese, indian, dim sum, european, sushi, nice deserts area…). Unfortunately you can't eat everything (or even try) so you'll have to come back !
I am seafood lover and I have to say that the oyster/crab/prawns/clams/sashimi/sushi choice made my day ! Wonderful !
I would advice to put more choice of fresh fruits for desserts, especially because there is a chocolate fountain which is great with fruits (there is a large range of candy proposed but I don't like it, personally).
The only think that would make me hesitating to come back is the atmosphere: it is noisy, there are families with kids, there is a lot of people of course, and it is not romantic or quiet at all. A shame.

“Food it out of this world!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

For breakfast, lunch and dinner the choice is vast, yet everything is cooked to perfection. Some really unsual and authentic food that I havent seen elsewhere

“Breakfast and lunch super variety!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

Excellent quality, super variety, from Oysters to fresh juices of all kinds, and Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Korean, Indian cuisine!!! All fresh and tasty. And for when you need a break from Asian... You can get pizza as well!! Low side: some times it was too crowded for breakfast.

“Great food (if you're hungry) but too expensive (if you're not)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

There are plenty of choices of food to eat here, including lots of seafood and different varieties of Singapore cuisine. It is however, quite expensive for a buffet style meal.
