Last Wednesday, 3 July 2013, my four friends and I were at Melting Pot Cafe located at Holiday Inn Atrium, and it was the worst international buffet I had tried so far. We were so pissed off with the food served.
As one of the reviewers had commented, it was like dining in an air-conditioned foodcourt and with not so comfortable chairs and I totally share the same sentiment! It was a waste of time and money, so please don't ever patronize this cafe.
Firstly, the cold drink, Sprite which was on the house was so diluted that we had to request for replacement.
At the buffet counter, the spread was so limited and most main course were local dished cooked in soggy condition. Luckily, the fresh prawn is the only dish palatable, whereas the salmon it did not look fresh to me. Overall, the buffet was most boring and I had to kept asking the waiter when they are going to replenish the pastries.
The serving staff was not properly trained to prepare the food like the popiah. The Indian lady staff who handled the popiah was unable to put the right portion of sauce and end up it was a disaster to savour it. In order not to waste food, I only ate the fillings and discarded the popiah skin as it did not bland in well.
One of my friends happened to know one of the hotel staff, and this staff also told my friend that their cafe buffet is not up to standard. But it was too late when we were already at Melting Pot when we met that hotel staff.
With so many negative comments from the past till now, I just wondered why is the chief chef not looking into the problem and do a overhaul on the quality and standards of it buffet. Its time they need to replace this chief chef for the better. Perhaps the hotel management needs to seriously look into the buffet served at Melting Pot. What is the use of asking diner to give feedback on the Feedback form when the management is not doing anything about it. My friend and I wrote our long comments, but I guess theere will be no action taken.
So, to all who are looking for cheap and yummy buffet, PLEASE DO NOT PATRONIZE MELTING POT CAFE TO REGRET IT !!!!!!
