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.

the square at furama located at havelock road is someplace that i got confused with as there are many different furama but this is the one at the waterfront.
they offer a buffet spread that is quite reasonable from the soups to the ever famous chilli crab. i believe that you would definitely find something that you like in the buffet.
Spent one Xmas' eve at furama riverfront and went for the Xmas buffet at the square. Basically, the buffet is a fusion of a number of cuisines including Japanese, western and Chinese. Some of the notable things on offer is the sashimi and the crab legs. Unfortunately, these are the items that gets devoured away as soon as the staff restock the serving plates. Smal bites like Cheese and crackers are also on display, which makes a Good compliment With the red wine that they serve. However, as with most buffets, do not expect extremely delicious food. Decent still though. The square did a good job in decorating the area for Xmas and also had a Xmas photo booth just outside their exit which makes for a good after dinner activity. Do keep a lookout on future Xmas/buffet deals that furama has to offer. Good to try if you hadn't.
