Rise Restaurant at Marina Bay Sands is an all day dining restaurant with an international buffet spread that includes appetizers, main courses, desserts, cook-on-the-spot counters, salads and ice cream. The Indian Buffet Section has Indian pulao rice, achar and yellow dhal among others, while the Asian Section features roasted duck.
I celebrated my sixteenth birthday with a buffet dinner at Rise last night. Rise is a restaurant located in the posh Marina Bay Sands and is well-known for it's exquisite and high quality of food. I have always wanted to try the buffet there, but it was just too expensive that I never got around to it. So it was really a pleasant surprise when I found out that my parents had planned a dinner there for my birthday.
Open layout and high ceiling (if there is one at all) all make for a wonderful evening.
From breads to raw foods to honeycombs and a roast turkey, there is a relatively large variety of foods on the buffet line. I say "relatively" because it isn't really that much, but it is fully compensated for by the quality of food. Also, these are the foods that most people tend to "whack" at a buffet (hehe).
The "centrepiece" which is essentially what greets you as you enter the restaurant. A colourful and vibrant greeting, no less.
The white chocolate fondue can't beat the green tea one at Lime (PARK ROYAL @ PICKERING), but it's still something interesting, as compared to the done-to-death milk chocolate fountain.
I love the marshmallows at Rise - they are unbelievably soft! Like roasted/BBQ-ed kind of soft!
You know you are paying for quality when you find ice-cream flavours like such in lieu of "strawberry", "vanilla" and the like. ;-)

I am really not much of a buffet person but felt so compelled to praise the pastry chefs from The Rise. Dessert there is just so strong and the variety of food there is quite unique and definitely is a cut above most other buffets. I actually dug into the desserts after my appetisers - salads as they are just so inviting. The desserts there were all above average, nothing is too dry and interesting pastries like Portuguese egg tarts were also served too. It really is my first time seeing a huge bowl of egg tarts.

When we reached the restaurant, the first thing that greeted us was - smiles! I love it when we reached a restaurant and smiles were readily given and genuine.
We hit the salad/cold dish section first. I really love this section as they've really a wide variety of selection from fruits (i counted around 7 types of fruits available!) to salads to cold cuts to preserved foodies (eg anchovies, pickles, sun dried tomatoes). :-9
Then next thing we hit was the seafood. Being an oyster lover, I took a plate and attacked it. WOW! SO NICE AND FRESH! And I like it that they provide the green tobasco sauce, which is a bit hot and sour, a perfect addition to oysters!
For a dinner buffet, you seldom see bread being one of the main attraction. But at Rise, the selection is HUGE! If you are a bread lover, YUM! All freshly baked. So many selections that I stood at the section for quite some time! I like it that they have fresh honey too! When I said fresh, it's REALLY fresh! With the honey comb hanging, and honey dripping down from it!
Ah, deserts! Another main attraction for most people. Again, so many selections that I wished I haven't eaten so many oysters previously! I'm not able to finish tasting all the deserts but I tell you, those that I've tasted, mama mia!
I'm not a main course lover thus I can't comment much on that. Selection is ok, to my standard.
After GST & Service charges, one pax is around $80.
