Carousel at Royal Plaza on Scotts is an international buffet restaurant that caters to all tastes with seven open-concept halal-certified kitchens serving a sumptuous variety of international cuisines including Asian, Japanese and Mediterranean. Seafood lovers will be delighted to find up to 12 types of fresh seafood for them to choose from at the signature seafood counter. Guests can also indulge in a wide variety of desserts such as the restaurant’s signature bread and butter pudding, assorted cakes and pastries as well as three flavours of chocolate fondue.
I had their buffet dinner at Carousel some years back, pre-renovation, and when the price was significantly lower. I don't understand why while other hotels' buffet prices remain close to, say, 8 years back, Carousel's leaped by a rather giant foot. Anyway, it did not stop me from wanting to have high tea there this afternoon.
It has a rather spacious and brightly-lit interior, a contemporary and very modernistic design. There is a wide array and assortment of food from different cuisine.
After walking a few rounds to check out what was available and taking some photos, I finally collected some delicacies and returned to the table. I started with desserts since sweets cravings kicked in - some chocolate cakes, red velvet cakes, green tea cake, orange chocolate cake and chocolate pudding - all fine and soft and sweet. The sashimi were fresh, as were the shrimps and shelled items. It was a rather good start so far.
I finally queued at the station serving Prawn Noodle soup (soup was tasty, but the noodles and vermicelli were rather tough) and Laksa (tasted quite nice but no cockles and not spicy enough). They were tiny bowls anyway, and I had asked the chef preparing them to make the portions even smaller for me.

There are a lot of glowing reviews of Carousel online and on food blogs, but frankly I think there are better options out there. The oyster and seafood bar was good, and the sushi were decent. The hot dishes and dessert disappoint. I think in Singapore you're spoilt for good buffet choices (think the Line @ Shangri-la and the Raffles Sunday Brunch), so this was a step down. Maybe the final bill is a saving grace (the prices are definitely reasonable), but if I were to recommend a buffet to go to in Singapore, I'd pick some other place.
