Read and post reviews on MELT - The World Cafe at its new address
This international buffet restaurant has received accolades for its premium dining experience. Exemplary service by the staff and a wide variety of dishes spread out in different sections. Honestly, I was quite impressed. The dishes they served were of top quality.
The seafood bar was decked with chilled prawns, mussels, scallops and lobsters, which were deliciously sweet and fresh.
Their dessert section is another highlight of Melt. Chocolate fondue, nonya kuehs, cakes, homemade ice cream and *gasp* WAFFLES.
I was never a fan of cooked-food at international buffets. But Melt won me over with their Northern Indian section. If they can offer at least 5 types of papadums, they must be really serious.
The bbq section was a letdown though. The grilled meat was dry and tough.
P.S. They did not have oysters on the day I was there with my family. And boy was my mother livid.
My whole family really enjoyed the buffet as well as the atmosphere of the restaurant and service ! Had quite a range of cuisines, from malaysian to indian to chinese to italian to english to japanese to modern american/australian roast! Service was great as well, everyone was very polite and frequently came over to fill our waters up and asked if we needed anything else.
The best thing I reckon was the indian section and the dessert section - seriously the dessert I could eat so much of it! My mum and aunty kept going back for the pumpkin soup with garlic bread and also the delicious chocolate balls (eat more of this cause they literally MELT in your mouth)!!!
What was awesome was the waffles that were made freshly in front of you :) and the plus side was that not only was it cruncy and soft inside, but it tasted so amazing with the mango icecream!
My parents enjoyed the seafood range - especially the prawns and lobster - they were extremely sweet and fresh! The lobster tasted good both grilled and freshly poached.
The $$$ of the restaurant is a bit $$$ for a buffet, but we reckon it's worth it if you eat enough and don't mind paying a bit more.
