It was a celebratory evening with a diverse group of friends all with different tastes. The glorious buffet offered lots of tasty options for everyone. Food is of the highest quality.

Good buffet spread and we loved the live dessert counter with delicious crepes and waffles. Only complaint was that fresh oyster was not included in the lunch buffet menu. Remember to ask for complimentary parking coupon if you drive.

The variety is amazing, but what really made the difference was their service and caring for their clientele. Really quite extraordinary. The chef for the Indian buffet took it upon himself to prepare special dishes for us, after we ended up chatting with him. You won't be disappointed, great value.

Went for a small celebration for our daughter's 1st bday with friends. Ameya welcomed us and since we had pre-booked allocated us a nice corner table with hi-chairs as well as kids cutlery. Also allowed us to put banner as well as some ballons and helped us take photos. They also prepared a nice chocolate cake for our Daughter. Needless... More

Went for the all you can eat, all you can drink buffet for about sgd 100. Huge variety of food, some good, some exceptional. The highlight was the waiting staff who really matched the mood of our group of 50, joining the fun whilst still doing their jobs to a high standard.

I haven't had the pleasure of attending many Sunday brunches, thanks to early morning starts on Mondays, but this occasion was well-worth the wait! With an incredible selection of sweets and savories, the real show-stopper was the incredible service received from the attentive staff from the moment we walked into the restaurant. The free-flowing Veuve went perfectly with the delicious... More

My family came here for a birthday celebration. We had dinner buffet. The first time we came here for lunch buffet. We prefer the lunch on the weekends than dinner on weekdays. Service is very good and we especially like their homemade yogurt. And the cakes are very delicious too!

Wide variety of food to select from and on the whole quality was very good. Good service too. Let down one time when strand of hair found in food.....some may argue it's a one-off, but once is enough as far as I'm concerned. Do hope it's an isolated issue.

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.

Staying in Marina Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighborhood in the traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars, and other attractions all geared towards pure entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo opportunity for visitors and locals alike. The ArtScience Museum always has a top-quality exhibition, and Gardens by the Bay is a fascinating manifestation of the government’s vision of Singapore as a “city in a garden”. Enticing Marina Bay is well worth a visit.
