Not a place that i would go back to again, has variety, doesn't have quality

Food/Drink 3| Value 2| Ambience 3| Service 3
Total Reviews: 6

Food: 3 (Variety is "vast" but food taste is nothing impressive at all)
Atmosphere: 3 (No clear instructions on what to do, confusing, not too attentive staff)

Price: 2 (Extremely overpriced for the standard of food honestly)

Accessibility: 3 (Near MRT, doesn't mean you will get in though)
 Overall: 2.75 (A barely passable score. I'll put it bluntly, I have no reason to go back there to eat ever again and even if my friends were to suggest it I probably would tell them that there are other places to eat compared to this place. Nonetheless it is still ok to eat on a weekday lunch if you really have no where else to go. I have absolutely zero reasons to eat a weekend dinner there though. Keep your expectations low if you are going there and maybe just try to convince yourself that you are there for variety)

Most helpful reviews for Buffet Town (Raffles City)

too little food to be considered "international"

the buffet here is not very satisfying. grilled food, like the barbecued chicken and beef satay, were burnt and the time to refill a particular food item was extremely long - i had to wait 10-15mins before i could take a second helping of the braised dory fish.

the buffet line was messy and cluttered, not to mention confusing, they did not group the food according to "wet/dry", but instead placed food at various weird places, for example, pasta, which was on the brochure, took me 10mins to find (without looking around for other food). in the end, i found it sitting in a corner of the restaurant, barely regconisable as a counter serving pasta.

To me the best dish was the soup, commonly known as 'cheng teng', it tasted delicious :)
but the desert was a big no no. fruits there were not properly iced and there were little variety of ice cream flavours to choose from.

although they had sashimi and many other food, it did not hit my expectations of an international buffet - the restaurant lacked interesting cuisines from other countries and food found there were mainly found in evryday life, like chicken wings, ice kachang, and pizza,

the servicve there was up to standard,though, cleaners often smile warmly whenever clearing up, and the counter waiters were welcome when serving food.

but i would not recommend this to children, being a teenager myself, the ambience there to me is not warm nor cosy, but croweded and noisy, more suitable for adults when they are having a gathering.

Totally Disappointed! Seafood is Dry, Tepanyaki tasted funny.

Went for Lunch on Monday, 28 April 2014. Seafood tasted extremely cold and presumerebly left over from Sunday night's Buffet. Not fresh at all with a bit of that bitter taste. Terrible!!! Tepanyaki Chef was very loud, slow and lazy. Infact, the taste of PokChoy Vegetables with Breansprout, together with Fish fillet and Squid, tasted like sort of Vinegary/Sweaty smell. I am totally surprised. I nearly puke with that awful taste and smell!!! The standard of Buffet Town is Inconsistant, with numerous visits encountered so far. A lot of Chefs there need super close supervision and top management is not paying attention to the food quality served to customers in the first place. WILL NOT VISIT BUFFET TOWN ANYMORE!!!!

I don't understand why, with so much fantastic food in Singapore, anyone would choose to eat here. The seafood was dry and tasteless, and despite the range of food we both left hungry. At over $40 each and with so many people in the restaurant I expected something better.

I love buffets and I've been here 3 times so far. Except for the long queues to enter (despite making reservations), I think its a pretty decent buffet place. Don't expect superb quality food here though. Just have a try of every food there. My favorites were definitely the oyster and sashimi because these foods don't come cheap when you buy it in markets.

Worst Buffet Ever - totally disgusted

Food/Drink 1| Value 1| Ambience 1| Service 2
Total Review: 1

I really dont understand why so many people q-ing up for this buffet, it is so horrible horrible horrible. It is the worst buffet i ever tried in Singapore. I am trying to convince myself it's value for money, but seriously I will not even considered to pay $10 dollars for this buffet.

Foods on tray - It is like eating leftover food. alway empty and left with a few bits. Top up is slow and stingy. This is the first buffet I walked 2 rounds and return back with an empty plate. to make things worse the food tasted horrible.

Dessert - Its a laughing stocks, I got a shock when i went over to look at the desserts. a lot of small tarts top with whip cream (look cute to kids but definitely its not for eating!), the cakes are those cheapo types, the ice cream tasted horrible. The only accepted is the Crepe.

Grilled section - you have to wait at least 15 mins for the Satays, the grilled squid and salmon head trays are alway empty. if you are lucky and patient to wait - maybe you are able to get 2 times serving of the grilled items. This is the first buffet I have to Q so long for just satays and grilled squids and they don't taste good.

Seafood section: you have to queue, they do not have fresh lemon for your oysters. they do not have proper equipment for your crayfish. 

Japanese section: the only section which is acceptable, which you are able to find in most of the buffet in Singapore.

The deating capacity is really huge, to maximise profits. however the quality of the food is disgusting and QUANTITy served is much lesser compared to other buffet restaurant which seating capacity is 3 to 4 times lesser.
