alright poshed-up indonesian food in marina bay sands. i was lured here, as best befits gluttons, by the idea of the rijsttafel - translated simply to rice table, though the concept is more of an all-you-can-eat feast.    the food was decent, but just that - and while it was unlimited quantities, it was from a small menu - which didn't do anything for my greed.      it's not a huge buffet, and neither is it particularly satisfying (I would find it very difficult to make this a belly-busting meal without first getting tired of the strong and limited (because of the small number of dishes) flavors) - what it is, is refined indonesian dining that's different from what you'd usually get.

Overpriced Food / Language Issue

Food not worth the price. Service staff has nice attitude but we have a difficult time understand their accents. Mutton is the toughest I have even tasted...to the point even the fork cannot poke into it. Explanation from staff is that because it is cooked in gravy...DUH!!!

The Moluccas Room, Marina Bay Sands

For full review and pictures, please visit :

http://urbanjourney.com/food-and-drink/the-moluccas-room-marina-bay-sands-394 The balance of traditional and contemporary is also apparent as you walk into the restaurant, as the ambiance and décor almost make you feel as though you’ve been transported to Bali. With an amazing view, lovely interior, and spacious seating, it’s easy to set your mind at ease, relax, and prepare yourself for a delightful dining experience.

There is an extensive menu of creative cocktails and fine Indonesian food that will leave you spoilt for choice. From Sate Padang Lidah Sapi, Confit Sakura Ayam Tuturaga,  Ikan Bakar Jimbaran to Angus Steak Rendang. Most importantly, we can’t help but recommend the Confit Sakura Ayam Tuturaga, which is undoubtedly 1 of the 15 Dishes you should eat before you die. The chicken is slow cooked in its own fat - a classic French cooking technique - rendering the meat moist and tender. When topped with its fragrant West Sulawesi spice blend and the inclusion of roasted baby new potatoes, this dish is clearly elevated beyond any chicken curry we have ever tried. To round up the dining experience, try the Sri Kaya Creme Brulee – a creamy coconut custard flavoured with pandan, topped with a caramelised crust, and served with homemade ice cream infused with Indonesian flavours such as Gula Melaka.
The uncooked Ayam Bakar Kecap Urap-urap!!

Undercooked chicken spoils otherwise OK meal

Went down during Restaurant Week. We had not been here before and found the decor to be pleasant and contemporary -- nothing memorable however, it looked more like a gastrobar than a nice Indonesian restaurant. (We would have preferred the latter, of course.) The staff were warm and reasonably on the ball, so no complaints there too. Perched in a ground floor corner of MBS, the place had nice views of Marina Bay. We had a nice otak otak starter, which went down well with their excellent condiments — all the pedas Indo chilli pastes and sauces were there. And the dessert was good too. However the biggest letdown was the Ayam Bakar Kecap Urap-urap. The chicken was UNDERCOOKED!! It was so undercooked that its insides looked an alarming bright red. This is unacceptable and criminal. Check out the photo for evidence. No matter how good your decor, your service, you will fail the moment you serve that can make a customer severely ill. I sent it back and refused their offer to replace it. I plumped for the dessert instead. I told the waiters to inform the cooks/chef but I'm not sure if they gave my feedback to the kitchen, as they laughed sheepishly at my sorry dish.Avoid!!! There are better Indonesian restaurants that serve cheaper and better food in Singapore. And they won't attempt to serve uncooked food, either.

The Moluccas Room

Tucked quite nicely at the Fullerton facing end of the Marina Bay Sands is easily one of Singapore’s newest modern Indonesian restaurants, The Moluccas Room. Touted to serve up traditional Indonesian regional cooking with a French inspired twist, I was curious to see how different The Moluccas Room’s food would be compared to the likes of Sanur and Gurame. With the bubs in tow, I made the family a reservation for an early sitting at The Moluccas Room, making the meal more as a late brunch, as it was the weekend afterall. I was a little worried when we arrived as we were the first customers seated and it seemed like we might be the only diners there. I began to worry that we might have made a wrong choice in choosing to dine there instead of at dB bistro, who happened to be on my ‘want to go to’ list. But the silent frowns were immediately dissipated when we were warmly welcomed and intoduced to the day’s menu.
