A friend recommended to us Momiji at the Balestier outlet, but we decided to go to the one at the City Square outlet. I don't get what's the big deal about this buffet. It's the most atrocious buffet I have ever had. Cooked food: (1) Chicken yakitori was covered with sticky and glooey teriyaki sauce that was too sweet. Tori Q's beat Momiji's hands down. (2) skewered items such as scallops were tasteless and cold (3) Fried items such as prawn tempura, fried chicken wings, tonkutsu were mediocre. The prawns in the prawn tempura were too small, so you are eating mostly batter. (4) fried rice-ok only. It wasnt even garlic rice. (5) hokkien mee or some noodles cooked in the way of hokkien mee, didnt touch it, looked yucky (6) hotpot, which I thought should be the main draw of the buffet, was served in individual pot and was pathetic. The beef slices that came with it were not fresh, and the soup was meh, and not sure whether it was collagen soup or not. (6) cold seafood- alaskan crab claw- tasteless. The only thing edible to me was the raw salmon. I took the ones they just cut and put on top of the older ones, cos that's what most people did, they took the ones on top, so that what's at the bottom are the ones not so fresh. (7) mochi desserts-2 flavours- skin was too soft and did not have the chewy texture (8) cakes - cheese cake (too soft), choc cake and other assorted cakes- tasteless (9) Haagen Daz ice cream- 4 different flavours and they were the only thing good about this buffet. Service was non-existent. No one cleared our used plates. Onother thing that was a put off was that you can see them preparing the cooked grilled food in the kitchen and see the raw food just near to the cooked food area. Would never come here again. Should have gone to Astons or Pizza Hut for dinner, which would have been more satisfying. Didnt take pictures cos the food looked unappetizing.
