Review (10)
The place was quite spacious but the buffet spread was limited.  For seafood lovers, there was everything, cray fish, crab, mussels, clams, prawns and sushi. Everything was fresh, and in small quantities, thick juicy slices of sashimi were prepared by chef on demand. The quality and freshness of food awesome.The maincourse section was quite limited about 6 dishes although the dishes on offer were delicious. The desserts section was awesome with many choices especially for desserts lover.The service was good as my glasses get filled up and plates cleared quickly. At $45++, we cannot expect more since now the standard of living has gone up. continue reading

The F&B team at Amara Singapore has recently relaunch ELEMENT, their restaurant – bar concept. Element offers first of its kind, multi-cultural, multi-generational and multi-occasion F&B experience. In this review, Chubby Botak Koala & Little Devil will only focus on the International buffet selections.The following are the selections available once you enter Element, Sushi & Sashimi counter, Bread counter, cold cuts and cheese (Woohooo, prosciutto with rock melon), Seafood (including lobster, crayfish, oyster, legs of Alaskan King crab, prawns, etc), live stations , roast selection, cooked food station and desserts.So let's dissect the buffet range starting from the sushi and sashimi selection. In sashimi section you have the salmon, tuna, seabass for standard selection. These cuts are fresh, generous and delicious. It seems that the chef like me, and I get some cuts of salmon belly which was fatty & beautiful. The sushi variety are ever changing depending to the fresh cuts they have and the creativity of the chef.For the bread, cold cuts and cheese, we zoom in on our favourite prosciutto with rock melon. We skipped the bread as we don't want to fill ourselves, however my MIL who had a bite of it said that it was good. In the background you can see there were showing Jamón ibérico ham. Unfortunately, it is only for ala-carte menu instead of the buffet.Moving to the seafood section, we devour the beautiful fresh lobster, crayfish, oyster and leg of Alaskan King crabs. The taste of the seafood are combination of freshness and well executed cooking technique before it was chilled. The lobster and crayfish are solid and I did not taste any fishy smell. The oyster size are medium in size, however the quality is superb.On the night, the live stations presented curry crayfish with fried mantou, Lap Mei Fan (sausage rice), ramen and tiger prawn tempura. The crayfish are bouncy and the mantou soak up the curry nicely. Lap Mei Fan (Sausage rice) is a good carbo option, where the rice are fragrant with tasty blood sausage and pork sausage slices. The ramen has springy texture while the broth was milky, robust but slightly peppery. We did not taste the tiger prawn tempura though.The cooked food selection is quite limited about 6 dishes, However, the focus in Element is about quality not quantity. Most of the dishes are good, with lyonnaise potato, lamb navirin and Taiwan cabbage are our pick for the cook food.While we have stuffed ourself silly with the seafood and sashimi, we only have little space for desserts, which included assorted fruits, chocolate fountain with marshmallows, assorted pastries, cold deserts and asian desserts. Luckily, we made the right decision focusing on the seafood and mains, as the desserts are quite ordinary.The atmosphere of this place is very good and very open. We were seated near the bar section, which has an opening towards outdoor seating facing Tras street. The open air bar concept is good, but it does make you wonder if it is wasting the electricity and air conditioner. Meanwhile, the floor to ceiling wine chiller will sure catch your eyes. It works in multiple way, as wine chiller, partition and decoration.Service is good when clearing the plate, however the staff knowledge need to be improve. When I ask them where the hidden ham come from, it took them ages to provide me with the answer.Overall, the newly launch International buffet selections are a definite winner. The seafood are fresh, they have a wide variety of selections and the quality of the food are excellent. From the price point, it is value for money. Cheers!!Please note that we visited Element in January 2014, so the Elements are still in Christmas atmosphere.

Celebrating my sister’s birthday at Amara Hotel’s Element , highly recommended by an aunt of mine. They serve international buffet here, with the ambience of a clean and classy restaurant. Their salmon sashimi is fat and succulent. The star of the day is the cheese baked lobster , melted savoury and creamy cheese with a slight perfect charring adds a rustic look and blankets most of the sweet sweet lobster meat. Their hot foods section was alright, nothing that stood out. But the dessert section was the only thing that kept me going back for multiple servings. Wide variety of choices from tarts,cakes and crispy macarons. My favourite was the smooth and silky mascapone cheese Tiramisu dusted with a fine layer of cocoa powder. Service was a little slow. Overall a pleasant experience. continue reading

I have heard all about the highly raved Elements buffet at Amara hotel. However, it was only recently that I got to try it for myself. I purchased a Groupon deal for this buffet.I was really disappointed. I had heard about the excellent quality of food provided. However, not all of the dishes promised on the voucher was available! The smoked salmon and macarons that was promised on the voucher was not available. It was a huge disappointment. The service was also bad as they took a long time to refill the empty sashimi plate even though the chefs had already seen that it was empty. I took them about 30mins to fill the empty plate.This is the grilled lobster. It is served in delicious sauce and is really good and fresh. The meat is tender and this was the dish that I was really happy about.Price: $40 with voucher continue reading

The hotel restaurant serves buffet breakfast, lunch, high tea and dinner. My friend booked a section of the restaurant to celebrate his 1 year old daughter's birthday. He told me he chose this place because he can book from 1230pm-4pm while most hotels' restaurants only from 3pm-5pm.I guess most Singapore hotel's buffet are quite standard nowadays. They have a spread of salad bar, japanese food, cooked food, local delicacy, pastry and dessert. continue reading
