International Buffet

We were greeted by the smell of seafoods when we stepped into the restaurant. There is a seafood section right in the heart of the restaurant that drawn my attention. Various selections of seafoods are displayed beautifully on the section with labels on the side. Fresh oysters, snowcrabs and fresh prawns are the ones that you wouldn’t want to miss out.
Western cuisines and Chinese cooked sections are available at the right corner of the restaurant. Choices for Chinese cooked foods are limited. As for western cuisines, foods such as roasted chicken, pizza and spaghetti are available for serving as well.
here is also hands-on section where diners can customize their version of Singapore Laksa and kueh pie tee. Ingredients are readily available on the display.
Appertizer section that provides the salad selections and various cheeses are available too.
Japanese cuisine section is not a miss when comes to buffet. Fresh sashimi is a must to have for myself. There are three different types of sashimi served that day- Salmon, Tuna and sea bream. The chef will prepare the portion of the choice of sashimi on the spot upon request. I requested for 2 persons and he is quite generous with the portion and end up I didn’t went for the second serving. Tempuras, assorted sushi and chawanmushi are available at the section too.
Desserts section was an eye candy for me.The colourful spread of choices which tempt you to try almost all of it. The cakes are in a small portion so that we, diners can try a bit of everything. I think it is a good way to reduce wastage as well. Durian pengat is available too.I am loving it! Freshly cut fruits are available. There is also ice-kacang maker machine available for us to customize. Topping choices for ice-creams and ice-kacang are nicely spread across the section. Nyonya kuehs are found at the other side of the section next to the desserts.

Great ambience

Ambience was great. Service was very good. Food was so so. Very expensive. Choose Carousel instead. Not worth the money at all.

Superb wide variety of buffet spread especially seafood and desserts spread! I love the durian cake very soft. It melts into my mouth. The oysters were great and fresh! I think they should clean it more properly though as there some bits of oysters shell on the oyster.

Wide variety of food

This is my second visit to Aquamarine for dinner buffet and I must say it is one of the best halal buffets in town! Excellent choices of food and desserts. Prices were slightly steep but for a 1 for 1 promotion, it is a good deal. Overall, an awesome buffet place for a family or friends to dine in.

TOO GOOD TO MISS!

Craving for oyster, me n bf decided to dine here and give this place a shot despite the average reviews. We requested for a menu on what food is served when we made the reservation. There is alaskan king crab?! I was suspecting maybe they will be serving us snow crabs instead and put kind crab just to entice people (my apologies for doubting your credibity!)

We arrived slightly later than our reservation time but was seating immediately. They were kind enough to let us know how far away we are seated from the buffet spread. Nice touch! We were given a table for four instead of the reservation for 2.. Mad love! As bf and I love to take many plates of food and enjoy them slowly!

We took a tour round the buffet spread before we "attack".. MAN! THERE IS REALLY ALASKAN KING CRAB! firm and tasty alsakan king crab!! I practically fill myself up with the seafood spread! Crayfish was a little dry though.. Crab claw was sweet.. Oyster was a hit and miss. Do choose wisely..

Cheese section was pretty small (who really cares when there is king crab?) The garlic cream cheese goes super super well with the smoke salmon!

Sashimi was a lil disappointing as I love thick slices.. bf was delighted with the thin slices though..

Cooked food was a hit and miss.. We went during the Siam Special, Shrimp salad was too bland, duck salad n chichen salad are suprisingly good! Tom Yam Goong is not too sour nor spicy.. Just the right taste to satisfy most people's taste buds.. Phad thai was not as dry as i thought it would be.. was ok i guess?

I didnt try most of the indian food except the briyani with fish curry.. Disappointing.. dont waste your carbs on that..

The beef steak was those mass produced thin slices so it was tough and not worth trying unless u love well-done beef.. Lamb was suprisingly good even though it was mass produced as well! It was thicker and much tender!

SATAY was good!!!!! I expected it to be dry (in one of the buffet all i got was burnt satay!) but it was moist and meat nicely marinated! the sauce taste so fresh! Together with those pungent red onions.. MAD LOVE! Roast duck is ok only.. A healthy duck I would say.. Not much fats. =X bf loves it for being less oily! They only serve steam rice (makes me think about a really cheap buffet I went to which serves super nice chicken rice!)

Dessert was nothing fantastic.. As far as I remember, there isnt any chocolate fondue (or was I too stuffed to think straight?) Only thing worth mentioning was the praline. only one type available.. Sour rasberry flavour with chocolate.. Bf was so impressed by it he almost threw a handful into his bag!

Tea n coffee is included in the buffet! and with $10 more, you can enjoy boston lobster on fri n sat! Service was prompt n professional though there are some new staff around who pissed my bf (he is abit anal) off a little..

For $60 per pax after discount.. I WILL BE BACK! especially when I can eat my worth given the free flow of king crabs!
