“Very fresh sashimi & awesome, awesome tea!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

We reserved a corner of the hotel to celebrate our grandmother's 90th birthday. The tables were rather spacious, we didn't have to worry about not being able to have 2 plates on the table at once. The seating, however, was a little cramped.

There was a great spread of food, ranging from noodles, roast meat, indian food, satay, wok specialties, fried food, sashimi/sushi, salad & best of all, they have a counter that serves a delightful selection of tea. I really loved their Chamomile & Peppermint. Earl Grey was average though. Chili crab was fresh but quite salty. Oh, & there were 2 big counters for desserts- 1 for cakes & kueh (they weren't very nice though), the other for teppanyaki ice-cream & chocolate fondue. I highly recommend the Caramel Banana + Nutella crepe. It sent me to heaven :D

Overall, if you're looking for a multi-racial spread, I think this definitely is the place to go.

“Wide selection of international spread and free flow of alcholic drinks a plus for holding department dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

I need to feed a crowd of 30 from various countries (from India, Indonesia, local, Japanese, Philippines, to UK) in my department for a dinner, choosing the right place to eat is a typical challenge due to the various dietary preferences and requirements.
Alas...this restaurant came up on the top of the selection list...it was a nice setup and we occupied the whole section that is right in-front of the drinks bar with the waiter/waitress proactively filling up the cups with red/white wine, champagne, beer, .... maybe that's the reason why I didn't get any complains ... :)
Behind us is the wide selection of international food ranging from the delicious herbal soup with drunken prawns to warm your tummy, nicely bbq satay, freshly cut salmon Japanese sashimi, range of shell sea catch from oyster, clams to crabs & lobsters, less adventurous western guests can still go with the delicious pasta to western cut, you can also find proper closure to your meal with western to chinese desserts. Since it's the mid-autum season now, moon cake is also served.
Check out the website for the various online promotions, this time round, I was not feeling as guilty when I submit my claims because I've got a 25% off the bill through the online reservation ... ;p

Oh by the way, if anyone drives, you can ask for the complimentary car park ticket... :)

“Always a great value for the money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

Went again to the Line for a birthday buffet lunch, and was grateful that the standard has not degraded over the years. The buffet at the Line is easily one of the best value for money East-West buffets in Singapore, although I might add that this is probably true for the weekday lunches where it is relatively cheap, and no-frills. The specialty luncheons and dinners are a bit too pricey for my liking.

Food is of excellent quality and spread, and is promptly replenished. Our birthday lunch came with a complimentary chocolate cake for the birthday girl.

Will certainly be back.

“Good food, but traffic flow around food is awkward.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

Good eats, from several different cuisines. Too many people in too small a space makes for traffic jams around food and constant bumping into customers on way to and from.
