How can you stay at raffles or visit Singapore and not got for afternoon tea at the Tiffin room? The service is excellent the food to divine and its the type of place everybody should visit for pure indulgence purposes if nothing else.

The food was excellent and would definitely head back there again. Plus it is easily accessible by any mode of transport.

A thoroughly enjoyable return to an earlier era when time stopped for afternoon tea. Our addition of a Singapore Sling was an interesting touch but I think the drink itself was over-rated.

Description
Dining at Tiffin Room is an essential experience at Raffles Singapore. At lunch and dinner, the curry buffet is a hot favourite both with tourists and locals alike. Expect authentic North Indian specialities, including vegetarian curries for non-meat diners. In the afternoon, the restaurant partakes in a classic English tradition and serves High Tea. Delicate morsels are arranged on a tiered tea cosy, while what does not fit is displayed as a buffet. Breakfast too is served at Tiffin Room, featuring a delectable international spread. Tiffin translates into "a light mid-day meal". Enjoying it with curry on Sunday was an essential aspect of colonial life in the early 20th century, with Raffles Singapore serving it since 1899. To recognise this tradition, the main dining room was officially named Tiffin Room in 1976.
