Went for buffet dinner with my spouse and had a great evening at Buffet City. Food was good, wide variety. The staff were attentive and refills were fast. The chilli crab that is complimentary for all diners are juicy and the claw given to me are so huge and fresh!! Hot pot varieties are amazing and there are also a wide selection of different mushrooms and greens.  Tempura prawn are well executed. The chef made duck Tsukune that some cheesy taste are marvellous. Superstar!

This buffet has in fact plentiful of yummy food items. I have visited to many buffets for the past years and most of them have some signature or highlighted items as a drawing point but the rest of the food are not up to standard or simply some cheapo stuff. But for this restaurant is somehow different from others. All the food are delicious!!!  The seafood are fresh also. Have already make another reservation for the upcoming christmas eve.

The buffet is surprising good. It consists of two buffets where diners pay for only one price. They have Steamboat Buffet & International Buffet. Unlike other restaurant that you need to pay extra for the steamboat soup, here not required. As they have wide varieties of food, at first we doesn't expect that the soup base for steamboat will be impressive. But they proved us wrong! The seafood broth is superb!!

The buffet is surprising good. It consists of two buffets where diners pay for only one price. They have Steamboat Buffet & International Buffet. Unlike other restaurant that you need to pay extra for the steamboat soup, here not required. As they have wide varieties of food, at first we doesn't expect that the soup base for steamboat will be impressive. But they proved us wrong! The seafood broth is superb!! Thai Tom Yam has the most authentic taste of Original Tom Yam. Spicy & yet mouthful of lemongrass fragrance. The steamboat ingredients are plenty.
Too much of yummy food to mention. Chilli Crab, Saba Fish, Satay, Oyster Omelette, Salted Egg Juicy Prawns, Roasted Peking Duck, Sambal Bamboo Clam, Otah Otah are among those that must try. Hong Kong Dim Sum not bad, Siew Mai & Har Gao are my favourite. I personally like the chilled seafood Mini Lobster, Crunchy Prawn, where eating alone already worth the whole buffet price!!

With so many different kind of pastries available, I love the macaroon most. The pastries shop cost at least $3 each. Here you can get them free flow. 

Overall, it is a wonderful dining experience. Will definitely come back for more..

I discovered the best places for my girlfriend and my dinner after browsing through the Internet on all buffet listings in the management office during lunch time on Saturday.

Before reaching the destination, my girlfriend had a bad feelings that I organise our dinner at a local community centre.

After making payment via credit card by my girlfriend, we found that the food is not that bad and moreover, the restaurant is offering 100 grams of chili or black pepper crab for each diner in the restaurant during Chinese New Year season.

Conclusion: It is not bad for a buffet due to it's fair price. place is clean and the food are nice to eat. Although I recommended their assorted sushi, I hope they can improve it because they use a lot of rice for the sushi. For small eaters, once they finish 10 pieces of sushi, their stomach will definitely become full and cannot try other food.

We were at Buffet City last week to celebrate our early Annual Dinner & Dance. The place is situated at Tanjong Pagar Community Centre, about 10 minutes walk from the Tanjong Pagar MRT Station. Our group consists of 25 persons including my big boss.
I personally like the restaurant setting, but that day was quite crowded. Fortunately, we were cleared very fast and the staff are quite efficient. We are quite pleased with the variety of food offered comparable to the price charged. Although the buffet line up in a L-shaped display, can see that there isn't lack of variety for us to pick our choices.
We started off with the seafood corner, consist of fresh juicy prawn, new zealand green mussels, flower crabs, scallops with roe. The prawn are fresh & juicy!!
The deep fried items quite new to me as they got some very rare food hardly got chance to try outside, eg the shrimp bomb, deep fried prawn twister, breaded crab claw etc etc.
The thai chicken recommended by my colleague the chilli was good, sweet meanwhile spicy go very well with the chicken. The fried rice however I find it a bit salty but after highlighted to the staff there was changed immediately to Kampong Mee Goreng. Steamed HK style fish my boss went for several rounds. The special sauce flower crab I think they used XO dry shrimp sauce to cook it can taste the dry scallop floss in it very appetizing.
The sushi station they have quite a number of selections, beside the traditional type that I can find elsewhere, I love their asian type as well, otah sushi, hei bee hiam sushi, abalone slice sushi, nasi lemak ikan bilis & peanuts sushi... yummy. Their steamed chicken is worth a try.. Better than many chicken rice stall!
The tim sum corner have steamed har gao, siew mai, char siew bun, even mini soon kueh, char siew pastry, egg tarts, chocolate donuts and some don't know the name but taste not bad.
The desserts have many choices like chocolate elcair, chocolate cream puff, premium fruits cakes, dark chocolate cakes, swiss roll a bit hard, and the most unforgetful dessert are their mochi mochi, very soft and yet chewy. they got 4 flavours and I tried all of them, red beans, durian, green tea & yam, Super Nice!!
We ended our trip with some ice cream and topping. My boss suggested that we will go for another round during Chinese New Year.

My sunday brunch at Buffet City is definitely a special one for me. We went in a big group. All of us mainly not working and finding a place to gather, eat and talk. The price tag is reasonable and I think it will soon be my regular affairs.
As usual I started with the seafood, the tiger prawns served are juicy and big. Nice to go along with some oriental ginger chilli sauce which I get from the Steamed Chicken Station.
I discovered that they have quite a number of stations serving Thai Food, Korean, Japanese. The tempura prawn are awesome, same like the basil leaf stir fried minced beef where I get some sort like authentic Thai Restaurant's standard. The teriyaki saba fish, they served in whole fish, cut into several portions, melted in the mouth and teriyaki sauce is fantastic good.
As I am coming to full stomach, I start to grap some cakes, they have some premium cakes taste quite nice, the oreo cheese cake, strawberry blueberry and I like the nonya kueh lapis so much!
The hot chicken pie, danish custard are some of the hot pick I can see. Many of us love it so much.
We ended our session with several scoops of ice cream and thank you they give away free can drinks, such a generous restaurant indeed.
Thank you for the Manager to taking care of our needs during our stay, we really appreciate it!

This is the second visit with my wife to Buffet City. The first visit was quite pleasant so decided to go for second round for my wife's birthday.
We got a surprise of receiving a plate of crab for each person. Can either choose Chilli Crab or Black Pepper Crab. The crab taste fresh and delicious, my wife took most of them after surrendered to her.
The food are hot and I can see that they only replenished after finished. Not like other restaurant the chef make an easy way out by throwing everything out at one go. That save most of their time. The prawn are quite juicy and they used tiger prawns. The best part is the sushi got many different flavours, even local one like nasi lemak, he bee hiam etc. The batter of the chicken wings taste not bad crispy. My wife loved the sjora mango as it is expensive to buy from those fast food restaurants and here she can drink as much as she likes.
Well compare previous visit, the food varieties are getting more and we got a full stomach on that evening.

Cooked food section, I do not know what the first dish is, as when I reached the restaurant, it was already this little, and they literally did not replenish it at all. The three other dishes are omelette, fried bee hoon and fried rice. The fried bee hoon tasted not bad but the fried rice was bland.

Cooked food section which contains stir fry cauliflower, curry puffs, custard buns and har gow. The custard tasted quite nice though, but quite little amount of it and the bun was too thick. Har gow too, skin too thick, dry and tough. The vegetables on the top are for display purposes only.

Ice cream section, which ironically seemed to be the best part of this buffet. The flavours available were quite alot, and all tasted quite nice.

Overall, for me, I think this buffet is ok ok, at least it did not make my stomach feeling too full but can last me quite long. However, for my mom, she kind of dislike this buffet and keep complaining to me about the food there.
