I read a lot of the reviews here and so many were lambasting this place.
I honestly don't understand why.
Yes, this place is not gonna top carousel anytime soon.
Yes there are dishes that can only be described as epic failed (Tom yam soup was way too salty, all the sashimi and sushi dishes, sambal fish was sour, wanton noodles was bland, otah was rather mushy and the prata could be used as a frisbee)
But there are quite a few hits as well (soba noodles with the beef yakiniku, the chicken rice...yes the chicken rice!, the salted egg yolk crab -- must eat with the man to! ! , the char kway teoh, the satay -- I had 10 sticks myself and the mini lo mai kai)
The rest of the dishes were run of the mill, average fodder of most buffets in Singapore.
All being said, I have to say I have had a lot worse, in this price bracket. In fact, even if I were to venture further north of the bracket, I might be hard pressed to find another buffet that might feature so many outstanding dishes. Most of the time, all the dishes sorta just melt into one uniform emotion -- satisfying but unremarkable ( example, marriott and one farrer's dinner buffet, which is at least 30 - 40 % more expensive btw ).
At least there would be dishes here that I would remember and might even come back again for.
Ultimately this place is decent value for the price. But remember only to stick with the dishes recommended. Taking too much of the rest might make u rage like all the haters here.
