Nice foods but not impressive

Too many different food style in Shangri-La Hotel. It is nice except those is local food we able found everywhere in Singapore. Like Hainanese Chicken Rice, Indian prata, Dim sum, pizza and etc. 

Their seafood & sashimi choices is minimum. It is easy found better choice with this prices in Singapore.

Food is nice but expensive

I went there on Saturday dinner buffet and it is around $100+ per person. The buffet has a lot of different variety of food from Seafood, Chinese, Indian, western, Japanese and desert bar. There is free flow of hot coffee, chocolate and tea. The service is good, the seafood is very fresh and there is wide range of desert. I like their oyster, Alaska king crab, Macaroon and sushi. The staff will always keep helping you to refill the water and once you eat finish they clear your plate very fast while you go and take other stuff the dirty messy plate was cleared.

Great buffet spread! Going back for sure :)

Had lunch buffet with my friend.. we were 10 mins early but the service crew were flexible and let us in :) they helped us change our seats due to the sunlight shining on our faces and blinding us so my fried and I really appreciated their patience and help.
 The food was amazing! didnt manage to try all the food.. the seafood spread was amazing! oysters were fresh, prawns huge and succulent, steamed fish tender! Some dishes didnt turn out too well like the indian skewers but seriously, everything else is amazing! Love the macarons and desserts! Can't wait to go back there again! Yummy!

Huge buffet spread

lunch buffet at ‘The Line' is, huge buffet spread. Fresh seafood, Italian, Arabic, Chinese, local cuisine, Indian, desserts and so much more… Attentive restaurant staff. It was crowded because of huge seating arrangement.
 Everything we had, tastes just amazing. This is one of the best buffets we had. Only thing we did not like that much is…their Indian section. Very first thing I saw in Indian section is, ‘Pani Puri’ (one of the most famous Indian appetizer). I would say, that was the worst pani puri..we ever had. Rest of the dishes on Indian section were just average.
 So many varieties of desserts. Many flavors of Gelatos and sorbets, chocolate molten cake, frozen yogurt, cakes, mousse etc. etc…

We also, had Breakfast buffet at ‘The line’, it was huge. So many things to choose, from local delicacies to western cuisines and Indian as well. Variety of breads, Cheese, Jams, cereals, yogurts, juices and fresh coffee, Egg station (you can customize your omelette), Fresh hot pancakes and waffles. Everything tastes super good. Highly recommend breakfast buffet at ‘The Line’
Thumbs up!!! for not just quantity but, for quality and taste as well.
