The much talked about Japanese buffet restaurant in Orchard Central offers a whopping spread of more than 200 items, including sashimi, Sri Lankan blue swimmer crabs, ribeye steak, grilled salmon belly, teppanyaki, tempura, sukiyaki, shabu shabu and a good choice of desserts.
I saw photos of Kiseki Japanese buffet from my friend's album and was very tempted to try. So I went for the lunch buffet on a Thurday. It was priced at $19.80++ for weekday lunch.
I got there early so there was no queue. After a while it got fairly crowded.
There are many food stations to choose from, such as tempura, teppanyaki, sushi, sashimi, pasta, pizza, noodles, salad, cold seafood, rosti, desserts etc.
The staff would go around frequently to clear the used plates. Waiting time for the cook-to-order items was reasonable.
Overall, I find the buffet value for money. I will definitely go there again.

We have tried many Jap Buffet in SG and many are ala carte style with many choices of good dishes eventhough pricing maybe higher than Kiseki but definitely worth your money and calories!!
I read popular bloggers review and Kiseki is said to be a MEGA buffet at value for money prices. some mentioned there are 200 over selection and I thought I can bring my dad there as he always like massive food selection eventhough the taste can be normal. I manage to make an reservation but when I walked in, I totally feel like walking out! And I must say Kiseki is smart to make people pay first before going in, if I would have seen one round, I would rather go opposite for some normal restaurant food than this sub standard buffet!!
Its really crowded due to Father's day, I can understand. But what shocked me is we went in around 7 plus, suppose to be prime time for dinner but most of the food try are EMPtY! Seriously! And most of them are really cheap food, and the one round I walked through, i don't think there are even 50 types of food! Every food is present in a messy way! Either overcooked or too oily or burnt fried food! Seriously, how do u serve this to customer? I can understand if the food doesnt come with many variation but the quality should be at least food court acceptable standard! This is definitely worst!
And the fresh seafood, seriously forget about it! It's like thrown away food, they just throw one basket of seafood with clam shells empty out and the clam sitting on the ice and its really a mess!
All the good food mentioned in blogs (teppanyaki pork, waffles, wafu pasta and all the good items) can't be seen anywhere!
The only food that is OK is the jelly fish that we can buy in supermarket! Can u imagine?!!!! And the green tea ice cream, watermelon and grapes, other than that, I didn't even eat anything!
I feel so sorry for bring my family there and i never intend to write any review else would have taken pictures but the reason why I wrote in is because I don't think it's fair to ask customers to pay for lousy food! and I don't even want to comment about the service as u can see many used plates stacking up on everyone's table!!
I think it would be better if Kiseki can charge slightly higher and revamp the whole menu, no need to be quality but at least have some standard in the food industry.
The fact that i created an account to review shows how much a disappointment Kiseki is.
If you are reading this, please save your money and stomach space. Even seoul garden will leave you a happier man than kiseki.
To start with a few:
1. The plates are for ants. Even plates for mains are just slightly bigger than my palms combined. It doesnt help that there are no plates at several counters.
2. The salmons are not properly cleaned. I have to eat in fear as there is a 30% chance of biting on bones.
3. The squid tastes like a worn out tire with a hint of sour bbq sauce.
4. The vegetable palate is mere lukewarm beansprouts.
5. All the fried food are stale and amazingly cold.
6. Do not expect much from the desserts too. The limited variety forces you to try and confirm that it tastes just as bad as its presentation.
The list of disappointment is inexhaustible which i will not continue. However, as Edmen Tan said, your best bet is the beverage sachets offered. NEVER COMING BACK AGAIN.
