Description: At Latest Recipe, diners can indulge in popular dishes that are prepared 'a la minute' (which means 'in a minute' literally) with personalised and individual servings of Malay, Indian, Chinese, Japanese and Western delights. Just watching the chefs in action as they dish out freshly cooked and piping hot food is enough to sharpen appetites for more good things to come. Unlike the usual buffet restaurants, there are no bulky chafing dishes in sight. Instead, the food is presented in cast iron pans, woks, chinaware or served in individual portions. Fans of Indian cuisine will revel in the Tandoori chicken, lamb, prawn with naan and other North Indian specialties. Sushi, Sashimi, Teppanyaki and many more exotic Japanese dishes are served daily. Dim Sum baskets are piled high next to piping hot noodles and fragrant stir-fries at the Chinese section whilst authentic BBQ seafood lines the Malay open kitchen. Desserts are a feast to the senses with decadent sweets including the Chocolate Fountain and the ever popular Teppanyaki Ice-Cream.

Although this is an OK restaurant when the crowds are thin, it becomes a chaotic bazaar when there are events. The restaurant fills up completely with hundreds of people, with tables set outside all the way to the elevators and escalators. The noise level can quadruple and the tired staff struggle. I waited 20 minutes for coffee to be served after a meal. Even that required getting up and walking around looking for the staff, as none came by (we had booked a private room for 15 people, paying several hundred USD). The food may be 4 to 5 star but service and ambiance was non existent.

I had a great buffet dinner dining experience with my hubby on a weekday night. Oysters were fresh, the chef who was cooking the teppanyaki that day, Chef Nordin was so nice. I was late in collecting my cod fish dish and when he saw me, he told me my order was cold and he is doing a fresh hot one for me and I was so pleased. The waiters were so efficient in clearing the plates and the buffet includes green tea, cappuccino which other hotels don't seem to have. Unfortunately the hotel has ended the Starwood loyalty program, for the buy 1 get 1 free, hence it will be quite some time I will be visiting this place again.

Good variety. Price a bit steep but all hotel dining are. Preferred the food that were prepared when you ordered, though you have to wait for it. Noticed the buffet tables were a little low. Would look better with higher tables as i noticed people having their sleeves touching the food spread. Dessert was just so-so. Not well covered...
