The highlight for us was definitely the ambience. Food-wise, the spread was decent but there weren’t many “to-die-for” items. At S$59++ for adults and half-price for children however, it’s a pretty decent rate. Their festive spread and rates will last till end of 2015.
Our rating: 8 out of 10 (Ambience: 9, Service: 9, Variety: 8, Presentation: 8, Taste: 7, Value-for-money: 7)
In terms of seating arrangements, we actually found the seating area outside to be quieter and cozier.
One of the highlights of the meal is supposedly the lobsters. Each paying customer can order up to 2 portions of the chef-specialty lobsters. The flavour of the evening that day was butter-lobsters, but they were unfortunately disappointing. The meat felt overcooked, and the butter sauce was hardly fragrant. We much preferred the black-pepper crayfish from the main buffet spread.

Town restaurant has always impress me with the variety as well as the quality. If you want Variety + Quality, I can tell you there is no other hotels in Singapore that can do it except Town restaurant!
As for the service, we have to be understanding that there might be some misses sometimes as I can see that all the staff were very busy and tired despite so many guests calling them here and there. I can see that they were really trying their best to provide the most polite service to every guests! So I want to say kudos to all the staff at Town Restaurant! Every visit is so happy here!
It's already so good for non special occasions, I can imagine it will be even more fantastic on festive seasons! You can consider this place for your X'mas & New Year Dinner here!
My friend organised a birthday party for his son turning 1 year old at this restaurant.

I am very impressed with the range and quality of food on offer for the buffet spread. The focus of the buffet has more emphasis on local food, with some western and Japanese selections to cater to customers who want variety.
In particular, I liked the following: Indian Fish curry, Kambing Soup, Peranakan Ngoh Hiang (Spring Rolls), Yam custard Dessert. The Roti John was exceptional and is a must try, because of the egg and meat topping they used to fry with the bread. Being a local, I find the flavours were authentic.
Overall the quality of food here is good and they provide a good selection of selection to cater to most taste buds.
I had a good time eating through the buffet spread.
The staff were also attentive and cleared the plates efficiently and attended to our requests quickly.
