Ambience: Decent. Nothing out of the norm. Nice view of the swimming pool though.
Food: Not that badly done. It is just that it is not that tasty either. I would say a typical lower-end buffet spread. They do offer you hainanese chicken and duck. But neither are that well done, though it is more unusual, I suppose. I like the chicken wings. Got a nice taste to it that I can't do myself. The soup is ok too. Not great, but it is nice for someone to prepare it for you. Yam and sweet corn ice cream are nice too.
Value: So so. Can lah.
Service: None since this is a self-serve buffet. They will clear the plates every so often, not too often and not too infrequent.
Overall: Can consider when they offer promotions. I went for $12+. But at full price? Nah.
Its a good outlet of sakura as it is very off-center and hence has much lesser crowd. reserving of seats might not be necessary on the weekdays and maybe even weekends.
There's quite a good variety of food available for choice from japanese style to chinese to western desserts. I especially like their black chicken herbal soup, fresh prawns and durian puffs. Oh, their yogurt puddings are also very delightful. But generally i think that sakura is slightly overrated and overpriced.
They used to serve garlic butter scallop, but no longer. It was really good though. Recently i just went there again. Standards of food have dropped. Their salmon sashimi had an odd lukewarm taste. The seaweed was soggy. And the jellyfish sushi tasted odd too.
Their crab handroll and lobster salad is still awesome. I can never get tired of their lobster salad.
Pricing wise is really reasonable. Ambience is good.
