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...

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.

Seemed like quite a place for birthday celebration. On the day visit, witnessed like 3 tables celebrating birthdays.

Visited during lunch and it was fairly busy on a public holiday. Was dissappointed with the seafood as it didn't have any oysters. Good thing that the prawns were nicely succulent and firm.

Oxtail stew was nicely braised with tender meat. Baked salmon was enjoyable too with flesh that's nicely pink and not too dry. Though it has dishes like duck confit and lamb stew, I didn't enjoy it as the taste was not what I had expected.

The buffet is inclusive of the selected juices jug at the desserts section. At $68++ per pax, I'd feel it would have been good to include a cup of coffee too as that would be a nice accompanyment to all the desserts.

Quite liked the shredded crab dish with fish roe at the antipasti section. Didn't catch what it was called though. Has a green layer of fish roe at the top.

Desserts was good. Adequate choices of cakes, kuehs, macarons and panna cotta. Ice-cream too though I didn't try. Service staff recommends the waffles with ice-cream.
