Friends have the misconception that I don't eat (much), but put me in the middle of such a buffet and I won't stop till I start rolling. Especially in face of a buffet with an impressive selection as what Basilico offers, it is impossible to resist!

Especially in face of a buffet with an impressive selection as what Basilico offers, it is impossible to resist! Located on the second level of The Regent Singapore, you will find plenty of pizzas, pastas, meats, cheeses, desserts, salads, seafood, and a lot more. Primarily an Italian buffet, Basilico is most famous for their meats. Carnivores will rejoice at the amounts of meats available for your taking. My favourite section, the dessert table, has plenty for the sweet tooth, although worthy ones are few. There's also a gelato section, which has about six flavours of the day for you to choose from.

Restaurant setting is generally quiet and comfortable, with professional waiters and waitresses who clear plates promptly. Post-christmas decorations give an added cheer to the place.

Most of the mains were quite good but none of them were particularly outstanding. In fact I found some of their meats rather tough to cut or bite. Their pasta and rice were slightly better in comparison. Pretty for photographs, but the desserts were mostly too sweet even by honey bear standards. The tiramisu lacked the rum flavour completely, but since I don't really like that part of tiramisu, this is perfect for me. Lemon meringue cakes and pear tarts surprisingly turned out to be my favourites even though I was already almost full. The lychee sorbet I tried was also way too sweet to be bearable. They can go easy on the sugar for the desserts.

The best part about Basilico is the variety that they can provide, but taste-wise, most of the dishes (mains and desserts) are good but rarely, spectacular. It is still considered one of the more affordable buffets around central Singapore with this standard of service, atmosphere and spread.
