Great international buffet! Went there for the Oktoberfest special and we LOVED it! Even the Bavarian music was playing! As Much as we recommend this restaurant for its food quality and great service, we recommend Javed our waiter who made us feel special all evening long. Thank you Javed!

I was kinda looking for this dinner, coz of the good reviews it has. Nevertheless I was not impressed. We went in Thursday night and few tables only are taken. The ambience is nice, but that's it. I know I'm not a connoisseur in terms of food, coz I have a simple palate. But the food for me is dry,... More

Upon arrival at the hotel, a concierge showed us the way to the restaurant after noticing that we looked rather lost looking for directions in the lobby. At the restaurant, we were offered a buffet tour by the waitress, an initiative which was a first experience for me. The waitress brought us around the various food stations and provided brief...

Was treated to a Saturday buffet lunch there for my birthday in June. Apparently there was some credit card promotion going on and it was really crowded even around 12pm. Food quality is nowhere near decent and food was not replenished in time due to the number of guests. I suppose it is not exactly the cafe's fault but I... More

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.

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.
