Best buffet in Singapore

We came here for weekday lunch buffet. It is expensive buffet but, worth spending. Five star quality food and service. Best international buffet we had so far in Singapore. Nice and clean seating arrangement, nice distance between tables so, you have your privacy. 
Easy reservation process. Staff introdeces to all buffet stations if you are a first time visitor. Friendly, helpful and attentive staff. Great service. 
Huge buffet spread. Japanese sushi, sashimi, seafood, thai, indian, local delights, pastas, cheese, cold cuts, desserts and many more..... Everything was just yummmm!!!!
must try their indian selection. Chicken tikka and fish tikka was too...good. Also, dessert section was quite impressive. Freshly made waffels with homemade ice-creams, sorbets etc. must must try their... Warm chocolate fondant cake. 
Thumbs up to this buffet and Service. Highly recommended to all buffet lovers.

For the money you pay....

Wasn't my best buffet experience admittedly. For the price you are paying, you would expected a wider spread and better quality food..... my honest opinion.

Not worth the $$$

For the price, variety of food is very little. No oyster available.

Very limited variety of Japanese food, sushi rice was very sticky. Sashimi was slow to be replenished and sashimi slices were thin and not nicely cut.

BBQ food was precooked and left there, food was cold and didnt taste good.

Service was poor, plates were not kept, water was not refilled unless asked. Very unexpected of a hotel standard.

Don't waste your time

I went to Melt on 16 Aug 2014 for dinner buffet, overall experience - Disappointed.
no fresh oyster and the sashimi very small and thick slice. The BBQ, Pasta and ice cream counter long Q. staff serve coffee without milk.  Overall food quality no good. As compare with Edge at Pan Pacific and Oscar at Conrad is so much better than Melt.  so dont waste your time to come here.  The environment very crowded and noisy!!!!

Miss it if u can

I came here for my Birthday dinner, last time here was 6years ago. Was remembered for a high quality 5 star quality buffet venue.

Sad and shocked to see and even to pay for Missing (AWOL) Good food:
"roasted pig, sausages satay, mushroom, corn, tomato, lamb, and steak" no presence of any roast beef lamb or even the outdoor BBQ! Was told because its SUNDAY thats why its not available (Why couldnt you guys inform ppl at "THE OFFICiAL HOTEL WEBSITE")

Strange for the Indian food ( Normally famous for being fragrant, full of flavor from the spices) is apparently quite tastless ! The Tandoori is just normal smokey taste chicken , i have tasted hawker tandoori and found it much better!

Seafood, the lobster presented is cooked and the meat texture is powdery , defintely not fresh !
Prawn, i took the cold prawn around 7.30pm not sure its the second or third refill, the cold prawn taste hard not juicy, shell sticks to the meat, took 2 thats it !
Salmon was good.

Melt's desserts, my partner felt disenchanted also the table beside us feel that way, did not perform up to par. Strawberries on a stick for the chocolate fondue was served one round only, when i asked around 7.30pm the young specky gal says no more one round only. Seasonal fruits like mangosteen were also out by 7.30pm , no refill till we left around 9pm. (How expensive can seasonal fruits be esp when hotel buys in bulk).

Thai Tom yum soup taste like colored salt water, with non of the sour spicy taste of Tom Yam Soup...
Lobster Bisque wasnt available only mushroom soup , tom yam and fish maw. 

Japanese food overall was just ok...

To summaries , i felt overcharged and beguile by the previous good review...
