Since its inception in 2003, Sakura Buffet has been a familiar name to most Singaporeans. Now, their newly-revamped menu boasts over 170 delights from Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Thailand, the US and France. I had the privilege of attending their new menu launch — unfortunately I could not write about it earlier as I was struck down twice with illnesses that took a few weeks of recovery. Definitely could use all your well-wishes. How is the revised buffet concept different? 

We started off with salmon yusheng (S$38.80++ for 6-8 pax) before proceeding to the dining banquet. It's a banquet because the whopping restaurant has a seating capacity of 200!

With Sakura's revamped menu, experience the best of what Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Thailand, the US, France and Singapore have to offer, all at one price, in one place. I recommend to go for their Dinner buffet instead of Lunch, because of certain items are only available during dinner time.

Such as under the Local counter: Boston Lobster & Argentine Red Prawn Hokkien Mee - a new twist on a beloved favourite, Hokkien Mee. Love how the noodles have the wok-infused flavours. Both the lobster and prawn are pretty fresh and succulent, eat till your heart's content.
Whereas for Lunch, it's only Prawn Hokkien Mee.

Other highlight for the Dinner buffet is the Freshly Baked Egg Tart with Bird’s Nest, I'm usually not a egg tart person, and it would be rare if I have more than one serving. Especially the pipping hot ones right out from the oven!

Sakura International Buffet Yio Chu Kang has recently revamped it's storefront and brand image. It showcase 8 different cuisines from Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Thailand, US, France and Singapore - all in one place. Some of the offerings at Sakura include surprises, such as Boston Lobster & Argentina Red Prawn Hokkien Mee, Baked Egg Tart w Bird's Nest and free flow of Liu Sha Bao. most of these are avaliable for dinner only $30.90++ onwards. My favorite top item were the bird nest egg tarts, they were crispy on the crust and a slight tinge of bird nest flavor in the egg.

I like how there's a mini steamboat for every table now for shabu shabu dining. Another highlight now is Belgian Chocolate Haagen-Dazs Ice Cream with Chocolate Lava Cake. This is truly indulgence on every level especially if it's free flow. also dinner only. So i would suggest going for the dinner because most of the good food are there. And it's halal!

Sakura International Buffet has just revamped itself,and the new deal got just a whole lot better.

With the recent revamp, food is now divided into various international sections in where one can get a piece of food from France, Italy, japan, as well as local delights.

Having tried the bulk of the items, I recommend starting with some of the sashimi at hand. Recommended is also the salmon belly sushi, a premium cut that will melt in the mouth.

From the local section, go for the Boston Lobster and Argentine Red Prawn Hokkien Mee. The Argentine prawns are larger and sweeter than the local prawns and having "live" lobsters from Boston is a treat at any buffet. 

Another must try at the local section is the Hiroshima Oyster Omelette. With a strong seawater flavour, paired with runny eggs and not so much starch, this dish is a winner.

I found the chicken rice quite interesting as they use Japanese short grain rice.

For something more hearty, the beef stew will do the trick. Chunks of beef in a thick gravy that goes well with some rice.

From the grilled Japanese section, I would recommend going for the grilled prawns with mayonaisse as well as the Freshly Baked Egg Tart with Bird's Nest. The egg tart is quite light.

For those who want to DIY, there are oysters, beef, chicken and fish available to cook in a collagen filled soup.

Save some stomach for dessert, and the one must try dessert is the chocolate lava cake with vanilla Haagan Daaz ice cream. Oozing warm chocolate with vanilla ice cream can never be a wrong combination. 

Overall, a wide variety of food with something for everyone.

I was thus pleasantly surprised by the revamp of their buffet menu and dining concept. As of now, their revamped menu is only available at the Yio Chu Kang outlet. From just $17.90++ (weekday lunches), you get to savour various cuisines around the world such as those from Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, France, Thailand, and more!

Tables are very wide and there is an accompanying pot for shabu shabu too.

I didn't get to try their shabu shabu but it is a good option for those who would like the best of both worlds. At this revamped outlet, you can have buffet & mini hot pot at the same time!

One of the cold dishes include the hiroshima oysters which are already shucked and they tasted fresh too. Their tataki bonito was a little fishy so I did not really like it. Salmon sashimi also tasted fresh and they were neatly arranged in small serving bowls for the convenience of diners.
