The Square at Furama introduces a slew of international culinary gems that bring out the best flavours of the East and the West in the buffet and a la carte spread. Keeping the kitchen abuzz at any one time is an entourage of experienced culinary chefs.

Service was quite good, plates were cleared promptly and water were refilled promptly too. This is a nice place for big groups and families as the restaurant was really huge. Most of the meat here were a tad tough, example those fish and duck dishes.
They have a playground for kids to play while the parents can enjoy their long buffet without the kids disturb them. Very good concept. Can see the photos in my blog.
If you're looking for a big place with decent food and selection, it's quite a good deal for the 1-For-1 Buffet Lunch and Dinner, with all the major credit cards including UOB and Bank of China.

a friend bought lunch today. we were to meet at the square @ furama riverfront on 23.2.2016.
the square on level 2 serves buffet. there is 1 for 1 promotion at S$55 for lunch, so quite ok, not too pricey.
we were seated near the window area, very pleasant.
started with the sashimi station. with the current GBS (Group B Streptococcus) scare, there was a sign stating it was “salt water salmon”.
salmon was very good sweet & fresh. i took very few by my usual standard, just 4 slices.
had the cooked prawns (good), tako, skipped the shell fish.took a pieces of slami & some smoked salmon.
& 2 maki – a reverse roll & a spider maki.but these were quite good. turkey salad best, asparagus was good, the prawn salad was good (nothing unusual but good), sundried tomatoes, and the vegetables confit tasty too. i didn’t quite like the beetroot, had much better beetroots before.
i had to try the curry chicken noodles. it was nothing like (no comparison with) the ah heng curry chicken noodles of course. i would say basically 2 quite different dishes. still the curry was very tasty as a curry dish.
i was surprised by the main courses too. i almost w/o fail avoid main courses in buffet except for semi-buffet as a single alacarte order. i guess buffet main courses have improved!
i tried nearly every dish.
pork rib was good, tasty. roast prime rib was competent. fish au gratin was good, but the steamed fish was overdone (both were the same cheap sutchi fish. i am thinking of doing this for my community meals so tried both). oxtail was competent, the braised sauce & vegetables were good. my friend especially liked the deep-fried belly pork. it was just ok for me. there was a mid-eastern lamb preparation i think, very nice too.
& the pork collar casserole, surprising quite good. meat looked (& felt when cutting) tough & overdone ut it was actually quite tender.
as said earlier, fish au gratin was the better preparation.
i took the 3 cheese – a brie, a blue & another cheese, some dried apricots, sultanas & walnut.
the peanut paste was unedible & should not be served. need a hong kong chef.
i quite enjoyed this lunch, chat with friend & trying out different food. one of the few times i actually bordered to try out the main courses, usually just took lots of sashimi…lol..
With a 1-for-1 buffet voucher in hand, courtesy of PruPrestige, my bestie Chloe, her daughter and I made a beeline for The Square nestled in Furama RiverFront. The restaurant promises "a slew of international culinary gems that bring out the best flavours of the East and the West" but unfortunately the array failed to charm us even one iota.
The restaurant boasts a cavernous interior and an inviting vibe. LED lights imbue it with an understated swankiness. The food however did not meet expectations — which weren't high to begin with. The meats had a tough, unyielding texture and fish items were bereft of moisture.
