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.

Great for buffet breakfast and lunch

Melt does exactly what it says in the name - a fusion of world cuisine served in buffet or a la carte format. A little expensive but then this is Singapore. Excellent service.

My wife recommended this place for our wedding anniversary dinner because she's heard rave reviews about the food! When we reached the restaurant, I was struck at the lovely ambience and decor.

My friend and I have been so lucky to eat here on the same day the restaurant was opened after renovation.

First, I have to say I do not like buffets but if they were all as good as Melt I would feel differently about them. I cannot say enough good things about the service. The staff here are attentive and eager to assist and yes it is a buffet. We dined for breakfast and dinner. For each there is a... More

Nice ambient. Must try out Lobster laksa and chocolate cake. Awesome! Sashimi is 'on demand', they will serve out individual plates. Great company, great food.

Buffet lunch at Melt was part of our seminar package. What we were looking forward to, turned out below expectation in terms of food quality, variety and service on both days. I had a salad for two days in a row, both times the leaves were limp and tasted like they had been left out for a some time. I... More

The spread included western, Indian, Chinese and Japanese food but the choices were limited for each type. There were only two types of sushi and some sashimi on the Japanese table. The Chinese dishes were not appetising as they looked thick and gluey. There were more choices from the seafood table but they ran out quickly and were not replaced... More

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.
