Satisfied Meal

Went there last Friday with my boyfriend.  Was rather indecisive after reading so many bad reviews.  But surprisingly, everything turned up very well.  There were enough varieties of foods for our liking, and we love the hot waffle. Service was good, responded to our request immediately. If they were bad, indeed great effort is made. GOOD JOB!

Only the price is rather steep if not for the 1 + 1.  
But, YES we will come back.  You have the food we like.  Thank You.

Do not waste your time & money.Mixed economy rice food quality, sub par selection, slow service

Brought my family of 3 there tonite to give it a try. The bad omen starts once we reached the carpark. Its run down, dirty,old and there is no system to monitor the carpark's capacity. The single story carpark is already full with cars yet the system still allows cars to keep on entering causing a jam. After getting stuck in the basement for 15mins, i parked at Funan the IT Mall.
Upon reaching the cafe and saw the selection on offer, my heart sank. This is no international dining buffet!! More like Select Catering buffer for your baby shower. Salmon sashimi & scallops were not very fresh. And once finished, the ice platter was left empty for quite some time. The satay and BBQ section is outdoors and the trays are empty the full 60mins we were there. Desserts tastes more like leftovers from the cake shop. Roast beef is hard and the sauce is bland. They advertised lobster bisque soup but while i was there only have the chicken rice type of old gourd soup. Overall, very dissappointed. Paid $34/pax with voucher but the selection is not even worth $15/pax. Left within 45mins with a half empty tummy. WORST Hotel buffet in Singapore.

Scammed, never go again.

Bought discount vouchers from online.

1. Claims to be International Buffet but food variety is very little.
2. Serve dishes like plain stir-fried carrots with carrots.
3. Dim sum taste worse than those sold in hawker centre.
4. Seafood are not fresh at all!
5. Only has one dessert - Barley water!
6. Takes a long time to replenish food!

Overall, not value for money and feel cheated. Please do not waste your money to go there. Hope the management do something about it.

Coleman's Cafe

Visited Peninsula Excelsior Hotel for buffet:
http://www.deal.com.sg/deals/singapore/Buffet-Dinner-at-Peninsula-Excelsior-Hotel-Child-Rate-Available-2

A total Disappointment!

1. This is definitely not an International Buffet, priced at a buffet standard but choices available were limited, obviously lagging not only in quality but definitely on quantity as well. Felt 100% cheated.

2. Chocolate Fondue was not working, after inspecting it myself, found out that chocolate was never filled that is why it won't flow and seems to me that it have been re-used countless times without change.

3. Staffs(A Gentleman and a Lady) can actually dine with customers when they are on duty (trust me, they actually helped themselves with the food for their meal that was meant for the customers only! *Management better check your CCTVs).

4. When I found out that the pork belly had finished, I informed the staffs and guess what she told me: "Sir I can't tell the difference between which is meat and which is vegs" (I almost wanted to bang my head against the wall).

5. Items(all in fact) were never replenished even after a long 17 mins wait. (Why? prefer to no. 3, really makes me wonder if this place would be better off CLOSED).

6. Oysters? Mussels? Scallops? Ohh! Is purely lagging in size and isn't fresh at all!   Photos can be seen in A Food Journey

Disappointing Buffet @ Coleman's Cafe

8 Sep: Dim Sum and Durian Tunch

Saturday & Sunday from 12.00noon - 4.00pm

Paid: S$190++ for 5 pax

Not worth coming here, very ordinary and common food.Nothing special or unique for price paid. Service Level no good; staff don't clear plate promply, staff on duty also eating.

Worst ~ many flies flying around the fruit and uncover food.

I don't think its worth the price and effort coming as there are other much better alternatives! Management team also no response to feedback, should have taken pic to show them.
