We chose this restaurant because it’s convenience location, we could have a full meal before sending my mom back to Hongkong. I have read the reviews of it, it was average rating. Psychologically we would think the location isn’t a popular place for buffet and so does the buffet isn’t popular to public! I made a phone call booking, they would inform me for credit cards promotion. Too bad, none of the credit I have for their promotional price, so we have to pay the full amount.
We reached there around 12:30 noon, there were 2 tables of diners only. They greeted us when we stepped in then led us to our seats. I like their food setting in long counter, they are easy to reach. Probably there aren’t too many diners, they would not display too much of food in each item, they are nicely arranged in rows, clear and neat, they would refill once it has taken, therefore no worry in supply. Having said that we could taste that their cold seafood were really fresh, especially oyster, lobster pincers and prawns, the natural sweetness was still attached. Chefs from pasta and noodle counters were eagerly to serve diners, when I passed by they would call me for it. We ate lobster pincers the most as it was rare in buffet scene! I hardly drank soup in buffet, here I have an exception, their Chinese style and western style soup were hot and taste good, I have both for small bowls.
At the dessert counter, we found the giant blackberry tart with dusted gold powder or sugar powder, it was really fresh, we loved it so much and majority of them were eaten by 3 of us! To our surprise they would fill up when there were empty. If we buy this fresh blackberry from supermarket, it is one of the highest price in berries, 250g easily prices at $7~8. Fresh cut fruits were really nice too, especial the cantaloupe, so sweet and fresh, couldn’t stop eating it.
Cooked dishes were just average, it was fine to us as the cold dishes were our main attack! We like raw fish too, they only serve salmon and semi-cooked tuna, it is fine to us though.
Although the location and price are not particularly popular to public, we are happy with the buffet for their quality of food. We may come back if we have the time to spare for travelling down to the airport.
I would like to mention about the lobby of the hotel, they have the direct link way to Terminal 3, it is conveniently for people who travel by MRT. When we first stepped in the lobby, the light was dim, then we looked up, they were using natural light from ceiling, the centre ceiling was made of glass with running water, so it kept cool during hot days! Thumbs up for their energy saving as it is important nowadays.
