I always wanted to trust the HGW reviews but it seems that it is no longer reliable. My classmates and i went over for a gathering dinner buffet on 30th May 2015. There were about 20 of us. And it causes us $45/pax after a 10% credit card discount. Personally, this is far too over priced. Lets start with the good points.
1. Service good - Plates are cleared promptly. Took initative to help us take group photos.
(That is the only point the buffet scores)
2. Please do improve on your variety spread. For $45 dollars , i felt that the food variety is too absurd little. There might be classmates who are unable with this buffet spread , but because it is considered a happy occassion so no one wants to comment to dampen the mood.
3. Tastewise, i think it is considered ok. But the food can be a little too salty and oily. Dessets are still ok. And can i know why potong icecream?? Potong icecream can be bought even in provision shops. Is this the kind of standard that a hotel should be providing? You know seriously, it will be betteroff if we had seoul garden??
4. I felt that the food are not refilled on time. Why should this be the case especially for the crayfish dish?? Prawns and sushi are ok.The Crayfish dish looks pathetic with tiny bits of meat.
If you are serious in ensuring that this buffet business is substainable, please do work most importantly on your variety and the frequency of refilling the food.
I hope those HGWians out there , please do not trust good reviews easily because it seems to be unreliable nowadays. Don't need to waste your money in buffets unless there are some sort of special gathering like what i went through. If we were to combine all our money, we could have ate something much decent in a restaurant. Our school happen to be nearby thus we chose to dine here.
*If you don't wish to improve your variety, then please keep your price max $30. For this spread, it is not worthwhile spending $45 for it.
I felt utterly disappointed with the buffet spread and it is a double thumbs down for me.
