“Good value buffet in grand location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

We went for our first visit inside the Fullerton with some work colleagues. The ladies had booked to have the all you can eat chocolate buffet and we wanted to eat 'normal food' but still be on the same table. At first this seemed to test the rules of the hotel but in the end they found a table where we could access both buffets.

The Town Restaurant had a good selection of different types of food in several locations across he restaurant. There were salads, sushi, seafood, pasta, laksa, range of hot dishes, desserts and cheese. All were excellent and for the money reasonably good value - the sushi was really fresh, good quality plump oysters and even half lobsters. The fresh prepared laksa was the highlight for me although it was very filling (not good when you have so much to try!).

As is usual in high end hotels he drinks were expensive as we struggled to get a bottle of wine below £50.

Overall a nice evening - and the ladies enjoyed the chocolate buffet too!

“Good to take guests”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

Took guests to the buffet evening brunch, as you can sit outside a chill and graze on the quays. The buffet had 2 options 68/88 Inc slings and tiger. In hindsight we should have gone for the 68 and ordered wine, drinks etc separately. The 68 buffet was more than enough and the food was excellent would recommend getting there for the early as understandably the later it gets the less inclined they will refill dishes. Just having the two drink options was a bit much after an hour or so.

“the good life - Best Brunch Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

It was past noon on a Sunday. I wanted to have Singapore Laksa as I always do but was informed that only Buffet Brunch was served on Sunday.

The seafood spread was excellent, a wide variety, and fresh. Accompany that with the free flowing moet, excellent service and a superb setting. It would be difficult to go wrong. Off course there were the local fares, the Sunday cuts and the desserts to satisfy the Sunday crowd.

It was the last Sunday of the month and the Restaurant was running full house, so it would be best to make reservation.

As a cheese lover, the spread, I must say was impressive.

It was a good way to spend a Sunday in Singapore. There was no better way to end it but with a Cohiba at the best smoking spot in Singapore, watching the junks sailing by.

The above minus the Cohiba will cost you SGD 150.00. Savor the good life, you are in South East Asia.

“Excellent food in a nice environment by Singapore River”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Excellent Singaporean specialities served in this restaurant at decent prices. Even simple plates like laksa soups are well done, fresh and just excellent. Very sympathic service and super efficient for the businessman who has not too much time to waste for a quick lunch.
