The revamped cafe now sports a fresh, contemporary feel with an open kitchen, and several live cooking stations allowing chefs to prepare all orders a la minute. Well-known for its extensive buffet offerings, Marriott Café continues to serve up buffet fare for Singaporeans with emphasis on fresh and quality food.
Last Sunday was Father’s Day and my extended family and I had the Father’s Day lunch at CrossRoads Café.
For this lunch on a Sunday, the restaurant was packed. Despite the crowd, the food was replenished continuously and I never saw an empty tray of food for long. Kudos to the restaurant chefs!
The restaurant’s buffet area is neatly laid out in a rectangle in the middle, where you have the following sections around it:
- Sushi & Sashimi: A variety of sushi and 2 types of sashimi (Salmon and Tuna) were available.
- Chilled seafood: Crab legs, cray fish, freshly shucked oysters and prawns. All were good, especially the prawns which were sweet and succulent. The crab legs were also good.
- Noodles: You can have your choice noodles and the staff will cook for you. Chicken soup and mala souo were available.
- Asian Roast Meats: Roast chicken, roast duck and Roast pork were on offer. All were yummy!
- Desserts: Ice cream, cakes (salted caramel, tiramisu in a cup, cheese cake, Antoinette), Bo Bo Char Char
- Stews: They had ox tongue, fish, roast carrots and potatoes. The ox tongue was good.
- Grill: Bone on Ham, pork saddle (like pork belly), roast beef. The pork saddle is good, perfect with apple sauce!
- European station: They had pork cheek, beef cheek and truffle polenta.
Along the side wall, there are the following sections:
- Roast meats: Leg of ham, Roast beef and more, with different types of sauces and condiments.
- Breads: There were different types of breads and even mini pizzas.
- Salad: I love the various types of olives that were available here.
- Cold Cuts: Ham, Salami and freshly shaved Parma ham.
The restaurant had a couple of dishes for this weekend that I had not experienced at my previous visits. These include:
- Crab Legs and Cray Fish
- Foie Gras
- Sauteed prawns
- More varieties of meats at the grill section
- Greater variety of desserts, especially Bo Bo Char Char, which I absolutely love and I had 3 mini bowls of it!
Coffee and tea are also included.
The food quality is good and I enjoyed my meal.
A great outing and all of us had a good time.
Cafe Marriott Hi Tea can be summed up in one word "Dissappointing". Its spread was quite limited and too Asian...I felt that it was more worth it eating at Food Republic instead.
The prawns and sashimi I had were not fresh at all. Its japanese section was quite miserable as compared to other Hi Teas I have tried.
For its hot section, its laksa was rather bland..The only dish I thought was not bad was its hokkien noodles...but then again Food Republic offers the same standard fare at a fraction of a price.
As for the desserts, I thought the only saving grace was its cakes.
The service was not up to par as I was told I could not obtain a complimentary car park even though my bill was at $150....The service staff was rather rude and I had to ask the cashier directly for the complimentary carpark.One of the perks was that as a Club Marriott member one is entitled to free parking when you spend $150 per bill .The last straw was that I gave a group dining voucher of 50 per cent to off set my bill and when the bill came ...the final bill did not look right and I realised the cashier did not off set 50 per cent but rather she deducted $50 so if one is not careful, you might end up getting short changed. Needless to say both I and my guests were not impressed at all
