Avoid if possible

Went for the Crab Buffet on 4 Oct.
Quite a few Crab dishes including Chilli Crab, Salted egg Crab, herbal Crab , etc.
It was Pretty good the 1st round but on my 2nd helping, realised that the standard was not consistent. Besides the Crabs, there were also live cooking stations offering Char Kuey Teow and Fried Carrot Cake, both not of high standard, and bland. 
The Carrot Cake could be passed off as a young chef doing his maiden dish.
You can get better ones outside this Hotel.  

Live cooking also included freshly stir fry Veg upon your order but this station was mostly empty with the chef having  free time on his hands. There were also curry dishes to go with Naan and two or three malay dishes, of reasonable standard, definitely not out of this world. Coffee and Tea were good , so was Ice Cream that came with 4 flavours. Desserts such as Cakes were pretty bad and an extreme disappointment;  Lapis cake seemed store bought, the swiss rolls seemed to be those factory-made in Malaysia. And no, unlike what bloggers say, there were no pastries, no pies, etc. Overall a major disappointment. This hotel is at least 30 years old, back when I was a kid, I was here before, then I was here in the 90s for their Teochew Porridge, the last time I was here was about 3 years ago when the desser station has opera cake, good quality nonya kueh, etc. They then should know, based on their experience that impressions count. One cannot put in effort on the Crab dishes and leave other sections of the buffet to chance.
