“Great buffet at the Line”
Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

Was there yesterday. Second time there for lunch. There are various food stations - seafood; Japanese; Chinese; Indian; Italian; local; salads; desserts and drinks. Save lots of space for food as the variety is so attractive you want to eat them all!

I feel sorry for the guys shucking oysters non stop and the one grilling the satay. Each time they place the food on the plate, they will all be taken up! Same for the guy serving the sashimi. It was a never ending queue for that one.

“One of the best buffets ever.”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

One of the largest and high quality spreads I've ever seen and tasted. Excellent desserts. I have recommended The Line to friends and will go again next time I visit Singapore.

“Still one of the best buffet restaurants in SG”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

This is my second visit to The Line, but first time for a dinner buffet. We were there early at 6.30pm and there was just a handful of guests. They had a pretty good spread for a buffet - from fresh seafood, Japanese counter, salad counter, Chinese counter, Indian counter etc. I started the buffet with fresh oysters and sashimi. The seafood were all very fresh and that's one of the most important things that I look for in a buffet, so that's good.

I tried the Indian food and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of it. The curry, dhal, prata and satays were excellent. There was only one thing that I wasn't quite sure about - the naan. It was hard and difficult to bite on to. I enjoyed the Dim Sum counter - especially the soup that night. It was so good that I had 3 bowls of it. All of the 'hot' food counters were pretty good, except that I wished some of the food could be served warm. I understand that it is a buffet and it would be quite difficult to serve everything warm. I tried the roast pork but was disappointed as it was so cold. Some of the fried food like calamari were also cold (not warm) anymore.

One of the best things about The Line is their dessert counter. They have such a wide selection of cakes and desserts for you to choose from. My favorite was definitely the mini Creme Brûlée. That's a must-try! Beside the dessert counter, there was also a counter serving teh tarikh and I had to try it. Surprisingly, it was not bad. Of course it didn't taste like the authentic teh tarikh you get outside but it was acceptable.

All in all, I had a good experience at The Line. Service was swift, polite and great. They actually prepared a complimentary mini birthday cake for me as a surprise. The staff were very attentive too. Dirty plates and cutlery were cleared within seconds without having to ask the staff to do so.

Will definitely head back to The Line again.

“Where do I start?”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

The Line must offer the most extensive buffet breakfast anywhere in the world. With some many stations and options, one could spend hours over breakfast and easily spill over into lunch. Choices, choices! Generally the food is all very good alhough the local options could be more authentic. The ability to sit outdoors amongst the kush vegetation is a real treat.

“Nice buffet”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

Nice buffet with good selection of western, local, Japanese foods. Can never eat as much as we like! Best is the discount you get when booking early on line for weekdays.
