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.

The place looks like it has been preserved a time capsule. Service, food, interior- brilliant Everything is just a perfect, and this is an absolute gem to escape the hot Singaporean weather.

This is a cute little restaurant in the hotel that provide breakfast to the guests and there is a delicious Indian menu for dinner.

It is nothing special. Except it is Raffles Singapore so don't miss it and go for tea!

Overall a nice buffet of Indian food, but I was expecting some more traditional or unusual dishes that I hadn't seen before. Overall very nice, just not anything exceptional.

Have a curry tiffin in this gracious old room, waited on by smiling and attentive staff. Plenty of food, curries of every type, all with ingredients listed so you can avoid the things you dont like and focus on the ones you do. Three courses of as much as you can eat. Drinks are pricey but the wine list is extensive and there is sure to be something you can afford. Don't come to Raffles for cheap eats.
