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.

christmas dinner spread

full review: http://www.jacqsowhat.com/2015/12/aquamarine-dinner-buffet-marina.html

We were here for our annual D&D is also because AquaMarina is halal certified for every food station, though not the restaurant itself as they serve alcohol. AquaMarine serves up a wide range of seafood, nicely plated in a circular seafood bar. Seafood lovers can indulge with endless servings of snow crabs, steamed live prawns, clams, fresh oysters lobster, black mussels from France and many more. Most of them are rather fresh especially its sashimi.There are nonya kuehs, mousses, kueh lapis, cakes as well as pastries like egg tarts. Don't forget to try AquaMarine's signature Durian Pengat.

Also something to note, the usual buffet only comes with water, coffee of tea. An additional top up is required for free flow of fruit juices.

Worth the try

we parked the car at marina sq. had a hard time getting into marina mandarin hotel shortcut frm the shopping ctr. anw we got a large round table near to the buffet spread. find the seafood slightly salty..but they were fresh. loved the pengat durian n roasted beef. nice dessert and other mains. power failure where satay was served outdoors. it was one of the weekend in oct 2015. poor guy used his hp to light up the sambal fish while i scooped a serving. for muslims the prayer area is here. yes it is affected frm the blackout too. 2 separate tentages for men n women. come with prayer mats and telekung for ladies. unfortunately i dont think anyone is helping to maintain this area. i thot i saw ppl perform ablution at the side (semi outdoors). back to the retaurant, their svc is of course top notch. i like the ppl. surprised bday mom with a slice of cake. kids under 5 dines for free. as long as they have not passed their 5th bday, no qns asked. there were 8 adults + 3 kids + 3 toddlers + 1 baby. discount given for certain credit cards. i think saved a lot here.

Fantastic

Had a fantastic experience dining with my friends and family here. The seafood is amazing!

Enjoyed myself truly. What's best is I recently went during the month of Ramadan and they have a fantastic new area for prayers. It was so convenient and a plus for me. You can solat there and eat and not worry about missing solat. Staff is also top class always assisting me and my son's needs.

Halal certified, exciting variety of buffet spread and delicious

International buffets are the perfect place for large party gatherings, from company dinner to family occasion. Having received its halal certification, Aquamarine joins a small list of halal hotel buffets in Singapore. Akin to its competitors, this buffet offers an exciting myriad of international and local cuisines. The most sought after seafood bar is well-stocked with fresh shellfish and crustaceans. The Alaskan King Crab is hard to miss. The rest of the buffet spread is divided into Japanese (sushi, sashimi & cha soba), Local (laksa, chicken rice), Indian (briyani, naans and curries) and of course Dessert (cakes, puddings, fresh fruits, and nonya kuehs) You might not feel like you've eaten your worth, since a human stomach has its limits. But I love how every dish is prepared meticulously and with passion.
