The food was beyond my expectation for a buffet lunch. Paid $139 for 2 adults and 1 child on a Saturday for the weekend buffet lunch.
There was a wide array of seafood and they were all very fresh. Some hits and misses for me for the desserts.
Service was very prompt. The staff cleared out utensils and topped up water whenever needed. Indian food was yummy! Thumbs up (:
I usually start off a buffet with seafood.. Followed by sashimi and other sushi, cooked food, dessert, and end off with other random stuff or food that I wanna eat again.
There was a largeeeee variety of seafood. The crabs were a tad salty, but I like the scallops though N said that the scallops were just average. I thought the scallops were quite huge compared to some other buffets that we've eaten. The lobsters were not very tasty.
Prawns were one of the best that I've eaten. Almost all buffet that has seafood will have the cold prawns, but I think Carousel's was especially sweet, succulent, crunchy. I ate like a mountain of it (yes, high cholesterol. I know)
There were also small section with seasoned seafood, which I tastes good!
Pumpkin bisque with crab meat. I seldom get to have pumpkin soup and this one was a winner to me. The pumpkin waste was distinct yet it did not cover the crab meat's taste!
The 2 pink triangular slices with a blueberry on top is called Strawberry Shortcake. Not the usual strawberry shortcake, but this one is more of a mousse. The chocolate mousse and the desserts in shot glasses were quite good as well.
I love the mango cake, which was also a mousse-like dessert.
This is my favourite dessert. I'm not sure if i'm correct, but I'm guessing it's a mont blanc cake cos I tasted like chestnut. That lump of chocolate ganache on top is thick and smooth. I had two of this on my own (:
Overall I felt that the buffet is delicious and worth it! Service was excellent. The staff were attentive, topped up water and cleared our plates quite fast. I found a strand of hair on my plate among the seafood, alerted the staff and she immediately informed the manager, who then apologised and took a new plate of food for me.
The white chicken and roast duck was yummy! Do note that it is a halal buffet, so don't hope for pork. The char siew is made of chicken. Did not like the sashimi cos I didn't like the way it was sliced. Other than that, I think it has lived up to expectations. (:
