If i could sum up our experience at The Line @ Shangrila, it was one of the worst hotel buffets i've every encountered.1. Apart from their oysters and clams, the other seafood was not fresh. The sashimi was a terrible let down especially since i visited the Greenhouse @ Ritz Carlton a few weeks before.2. The desserts looked splendid. But thats as far as it gets. Most of the cakes were too sweet or full of cream but no substance. Their fondue had alot of choices for dips, but most of the biscuit

If i could sum up our experience at The Line @ Shangrila, it was one of the worst hotel buffets i've every encountered.

1. Apart from their oysters and clams, the other seafood was not fresh. The sashimi was a terrible let down especially since i visited the Greenhouse @ Ritz Carlton a few weeks before.

2. The desserts looked splendid. But thats as far as it gets. Most of the cakes were too sweet or full of cream but no substance. Their fondue had alot of choices for dips, but most of the biscuit dips had been left exposed too long. The chocolates on display were merely plain milk chocolates, nothing special either.

3. The laksa (see IMG 1) was watery and did not taste one bit like laksa. Something was wrong and we couldn't figure out what that was.

4. Their service sucked. We wanted to surprise our friend with a birthday cake (which The Line agreed to provide when we phoned for reservations). However they did not have a cake ready and i had to approach at least 3 service staff before somebody directed me to a waitress who was able to get a slice of cake for me. The waitress also ignored my requests for her to be discreet. And i had to follow her to the kitchen, be told to wait outside while she went in to get the cake. Absolutely unacceptable.

The only saving grace for food was the indian food section. Most of the indian food we sampled were if not tasty, at least they tasted decent. The duck from the chinese section wasn't that bad either.

Overall, if not for the company, it was a very bad dining experience.
