Lime. Interesting name for a restaurant. It gives a sour and refreshing touch to the restaurant. It was a family gathering. Buffet is always great for gatherings. Everyone get to pick what they want and eat what amount they like. Of course, if you eat little, it seem like a waste but you get to try all different variety. So I always love to choose buffet for gatherings. I like the ambience and the food! Great variety for a buffet spread. However, i think they should brush up their service. Especially they need to have staff constantly at the entrance welcoming customers.

Lime Restaurant @ Parkroyal on Pickering

For the full review with uploaded photos and quoted prices:

http://www.thefoodnomads.com/2013/08/29/lime-restaurant-parkroyal-on-pickering/

The new Parkroyal on Pickering is colossal. A foyer rises a few stories to a ceiling of wavy inverted terrace in cream, gray, slate and sepia, the upper side of which becomes a podium that elevates the hotel blocks with yet more slender pillars. Forest canopies and shrubbery overrun every possible corner of the facade and it could well fit the vision of a post-apocalyptic city fortress. If you take my word for it, by apocalypse, I actually meant global warming – the new Parkroyal Hotel along Pickering road is a BCA Green Mark Platinum Award recipient. And the hotel’s international buffet at Lime Restaurant seems to share its vibes.

Lime Restaurant, in looks, is not a foreign body like most hotel restaurants. The design focus is roughly the same, albeit reassembled: mirrors as walls, for light and heat scattering, in tetris-like Mondrian; fibreglass and teak counter tops; walls of blond wood strips in similarly terraced bands. Against the woven seats and the floor-to-ceiling glass exterior, the restaurant feels cavernous. Move to the bar and the mood feels slightly subterranean. If you prefer lounging, the sofas are right behind the buffet stretch. There are no partitions or delineation and the space does not feel disjointed in any way.

In fact, no one seems to stick out in any way, even the odd hotel guest who orders a la carte quietly in a corner. And strangers are equally game to share tables at the longer communal tables at the chacuterie table or the dessert table.
Most other times, a garden or greenhouse should be what you’re getting. Starters surround a portion of a rectangular counter top in the centre aisle. Split-headed spotlight stands line the table, punctuated by pots of terragon, basil and bell papers. This is where you will find a humble selection of bread (densely packed with carbs but not as much flavor) and cheese – the cheddar-friendly Comte, a delectable semi-soft Tomme de Savoie, and the Kikorangi, a slightly astringent blue cheese.
Seafood here comes racked on an ice rampart, piked with pieces of driftwood. The Canadian Oysters are small but as they say, rather sweet. Just be careful with the occasional bits of sand (karma might have to do with it). There are also Tiger Prawns, Clams, and Mussels, all fresh and good.
The mains are all about the meat. Lamb Shank has a deep nutty stew. The meat has parted ways with the bones, puzzingly, as they fall short of being off-the-bone tender. The Braised Chicken Chasseur was much more yielding in texture. The sauce, while not as rich, was reasonably complex with a demi-glace base that bubbles thickly with the heat from the induction plates.

Nice ambience but lousy food

We always love hotel buffet but was seriously disappointmented by the qualityat Lime. The pasta (chef cooked onthe spot) was the worst. They cant even get the simpliest aglio olio correctly done. Next, the dessert section, the creme brulee was hard and the bobo char char tasted salty! The durian dessert was nice though. I will not recommend and will not go there again. It was obviously not value for money for the quality they providing. Hopefully they make improvement to it.

Great ambience!

We had full of hopes for this beautiful place after visiting it during a wedding fair. And after, you know, the Hit man: Agent 47 movie, as one of the scenes was shot in their beautiful Presidential Suite.

There were hits and misses.

Of course, the lovely decoration and ambience is a definite 10/10 hit. It's one of the classiest hotel around. We love the restrooms especially. All the wood, shouting eco-friendliness. There weren't much people around on a Sunday, but the wait staff were quite attentive.

There was a special Peranakan feature in the buffet line, which is partly why we were there, for our Peranakan mother's birthday. Sadly, only the Durian desert made the mark, but the rest were pretty average...

Tiers of Joy Afternoon Tea

Full story: http://dairycream.blogspot.sg/

The centuries-old English afternoon tea is well and alive in this garden city but I think few ticked all the boxes for great food and ambience just like Lime Patisserie, a new chic sweets boutique that has just opened in front of the buffet restaurant for a few months. Besides the artisanal pastries, guests can also indulge in a refined three tier afternoon tea set that is surprisingly reasonably priced at only $38++ for TWO   They don't call this afternoon tea "Tiers of Joy" for nothing. Before we even begin, there were a few passers-by who were ogling at our elegant triple decker that features  an impressive ensemble of assorted sandwiches, macarons, classic French pastries including rich dense earl grey brownies and superb raisin scones.

These delicate golden babies were wrapped cautiously in a pristine white cloth, keeping them warm and moist. Slather on some of the clotted cream and strawberry jam on the tender interior and slowly take a bite of it. Heavenly.    The tarts, which are also baked in-house, deserved a round of standing ovation as the pastry shells were crisp and crumbly with absolutely no hints of sogginess. Besides the classic fruit tart, there was the chocolate orange tart, a sweet milk chocolate based version with a soothing citrus fragrance that would calm down any restlessnessI could not help but smiled gleefully at the discovery of one the best tarts in Singapore   Complete them with free flow of coffee or fine Gryphon tea selection that includes some quirky flavors such as theWhite Gingerlily White Tea or the Tomatino caffeine-free tea and the afternoon tea felt half accomplished.

Saturday buffet dinner at Lime

It was meant to be a birthday dinner celebration but everything was kind of turned off instead. There were really limited variety of food and dessert. Would definitely not come back again and there was no highlights/or best food there. The seafood portion looks pathetic, the amount of seafood they have and placed there were not at all appetizing. There were only small portion of oysters, prawn and mussels. No sushi platter as showed online nor maki(idk if they ran out of it but they could have top up on that, it was only 730-8pm but everything seems to be missing, no chilli crab too.) Paying slightly above $80 (after gst & service charge) /pax, With this price, i could have visited other hotels buffet dinner and just top up alittle more to enjoy better food quality and variety. Probably one of the worst buffet dinner ever. The only upside was the hotel looks really grand and classy.
