This is our first time dining here & we were totally disappointed. We needed to pay at the cashier before going into the restaurant. To our dismay, this place is not an aircon restaurant. Though there were fans around, but can you imagine eating steamboat & bbq for lunch around 12pm? Totally discomfort, hot & sweaty++ due to the scorching sun. All seats are placed outdoors with insufficient shelters and the unbearable heat that is coming out from the bbq & steamboat stove. The fans were also blo

This is our first time dining here & we were totally disappointed. We needed to pay at the cashier before going into the restaurant. To our dismay, this place is not an aircon restaurant. Though there were fans around, but can you imagine eating steamboat & bbq for lunch around 12pm? Totally discomfort, hot & sweaty++ due to the scorching sun. All seats are placed outdoors with insufficient shelters and the unbearable heat that is coming out from the bbq & steamboat stove. The fans were also blowing hot air/fumes from other tables bbq stove from different directions. Thus we reckoned eating lunch is definitely a no no but was too late.

We proceed to get some ready to eat food from cooked food section. There were glutinous rice, stir fry broccoli with mushrooms & baby corns, fried nuggets, fried prawns, herbal chicken, shark fin soup. The herbal chicken is quite tasty, the meat is tender & flavourful. We like the herbal chicken soup with a tinge of herbal taste. There is a sushi section with assorted sushi. Nothing special or worth mentioning as they were just basic sushi. We tried a few sushi but they were not very yummy, can't taste the usual vinegar in the rice & the rice was a bit hard.

There were meat section, where different kinds of meat (chicken, beef, duck, chicken wings) can be found. All were marinated (black pepper, cajun, oyster, spice, etc) & put on big plates for people to take. As the meat were prepared & marinated in huge quantity, those meat on the top of the plate appears dry. We must say that the chicken satay were quite good, very flavourful & taste almost like those satay sold outside. The beef were not as good. We tried a few different beef flavours & they all had a bit of weird taste
Chicken wings were all time favourites for bbq. Most tables including us ate quite a fair bit of the chicken wings. Well marinated wings!

As for the steamboat, there were many ingredients to choose from. Sad to say that my favourite 'tau pok' & beancurd were not very fresh & had a sour taste after we tried them
The fu zhou fish ball, mushroom balls, fish balls were not bad. There were free flow of drinks & desserts (fresh fruits, 'Cheng Teng', jellies, cream puffs, mini eclairs, mini cakes, assorted ice cream).

The plates & utensils appeared to be not washed properly with stains. We had to wash them ourselves before they were fit for usage. I am really glad that I got a habit to look at my food before I consumed. Guess what did I find? Lots of dead ants & some still crawling in the pool of water where the ice cream scoop was being soaked! I showed my hubby & reminded him to pay attention to his food before consuming.

We are not going back to this place again for dining definitely due to the poor hygiene & dinning atmosphere. Even though there were a variety of ingredients to choose from, but we believe the quality is more important than quantity. I should say this is the worst dining experience we had so far.

A great meet-up with my secondary school friends after about 1 mth plus of not seeing each other. Celebration was held at punggol marina where we have a small buffet (steamboat + BBQ). There are different variety of foods that one's can choose from ranging from seafood, meat (fish, chicken, beef), cooked foods, dessert (ice cream, puffs n etc) and more. The price was only $25 per person inclusive of 10% discount by using POSB/DBS card. The only disadvantage is the lack of air-conditioned which y

A great meet-up with my secondary school friends after about 1 mth plus of not seeing each other. Celebration was held at punggol marina where we have a small buffet (steamboat + BBQ). There are different variety of foods that one's can choose from ranging from seafood, meat (fish, chicken, beef), cooked foods, dessert (ice cream, puffs n etc) and more. The price was only $25 per person inclusive of 10% discount by using POSB/DBS card. The only disadvantage is the lack of air-conditioned which you can perspired like hell when u are BBQing ~~ :/ Other than that, they also provide aluminium bowl to BBQ your foods like Salmon, Chicken so that it will not stick on it. There are also different sauces which you can BBQ with such as having Sambal Salmon ?

The recommended food that you must eat is the 'DURAIN PUFF'.

Was celebrating my friend's birthday at this Charcoal Grilled & Shabu Shabu Restaurant.

Never been to this place and it was my first time there. Never thought of going to this place as the location is far too 'ulu for me', very out of the place. I dont think i will come again, mainly bcos of the location and honestly i dont really like the food there.

Although the variety seems to be many but i don't really go for variety, I would prefer to have more quality food than variety.

But i do like the shabu shabu soup base, the soup tasted really good. It was naturally sweet and flavourful. And i like the dessert section too which i get to try many of the mini cakes.

The items here are so wide in their buffet list, you will be really confuse and also equally excited to try out every single items on it. Some items are served on the satay sticks such as their thinly sliced pork with asapagus in it. These items are not marinated so that it will bring out its natural freshness and taste after barberqued. Their clam in shelfs are also very chewy and fresh too. You will be expecting heavy crowds here during weekends and public holidays and is a great hangout v

Came to this buffet place after a trip for wake boarding! Good spread of food available for both BBQ & steamboat. Good value for those who are great eaters. Eating here, you get to grill in charcoal and you get a ‘full sized’ steamboat.Lots of variety! For seafood, there is mussels, salmon, prawns, crabs, different kinds of fish slices and all kinds of seashells. Around 30 types of marinated meat for you to choose including satay!!!

Lots of variety! For seafood, there is mussels, salmon, prawns, crabs, different kinds of fish slices and all kinds of seashells. Around 30 types of marinated meat for you to choose including satay!!! But dessert selection are a hit and miss, lots of variety but all does not taste good at all. in-fact i like some of the creative ingredient which u can choose to grill it or steam it, like bacon wrapped with asparagus.

The buffet lunch cost us less than sgd30 per pax.
