If you are a fan of international cuisine, especially in buffet style, I doubt Todai will sound new to you. I have been to Todai before for lunch, and they serve a variety of food, such as Korean, Chinese, Japanese cuisines and such.

This year, Todai is celebrating its 4th year birthday anniversary, and I am glad to be trying out some of the birthday treats gathered from several parts of the globe.
We were first served with two cold-platters, and mind you, one piece of each seafood is never enough. If you love oysters, Todai is supplying unlimited amount on every weekday dinner and all day weekend!
These are some of the birthday treats served in Todai, prepared specially for Todai's birthday anniversary.
Japchae, is a Korean birthday dish, which is made up of sweet potato noodles stir-fried in sesame oil with vegetables and meat. The noodles taste like Chinese's cellophane noodles. Perhaps with the sesame oil, the noodle is smooth and sweet to slurp into your mouth.
Another Korean birthday dish, Miyeokguk. It is actually a nutritious soup that consists of high iodine and calcium content. While this soup is traditionally meant for women whom have just given birth for recovery, it is now also a birthday dish, signifying the food and nutrition supplied by mothers during the pregnancy period.
One of the popular birthday dish among the Chinese, Shoutao, which in mandarin is written as 寿桃. These buns are shaped like peaches, symbolizing long life and good health.
Yi Mein, also another Chinese dish. Similar to the Korean's Japchae, it is also known as the longevity noodle, calling upon a long and prosperous life. Ever remembering listening to hearsay that you need to slurp in the entire piece of noodle without breaking it?
A birthday dish from Ghana, Africa, Oto. Made of hard-boiled eggs, mashed potato and palm oil. Oto is a dish that is supposed to be used mashed yam instead of mashed potato, but Todai's trial and errors found mashed potato suits Asian's taste more, thus the substitute.
Jollof Rice from Nigeria. The mixture of coconut oil, fresh red chili pepper and aromatic spices, Jollof Rice authentically emit the flavour of African. I love the stickiness of the rice, just like the Chinese rice dumplings, and fresh prawns to go with the already-delicious rice.
I am sure this cake has been known to most foodies, and of course a kid's eye-catching dish. 4-Layer Birthday Cake from Russia. A birthday is not a norm to go without a cake or sort. Vibrant layers of colour that got my fork slicing for more despite the cream.
Todai is not just treating diners with their spread of birthday treats, but also celebrating it more with diners sharing the same birthday month! For the March babies, just get an isntant photo taken at Todai and you will receive a complimentary birthday cake (24 hours advance reservation)! Isn't that wonderful? If its not enough, Todai is also giving away a total of 5 passes which entitles you to enjoy unlimited buffet dining for 30 days consecutively! Of course, a minimum spend of $200 is required before you can take part in this incredible lucky draw.
Fret not if you not one of the March babies or lucky winners. 10% off the bill if you are a UOB or Maybank Card Holder, and a free parking ticket with a minimum spending of $250 with UOB card.
