I am a fan of buffets. However, good buffets always leave a hole in my wallet. The more affordable ones would tend to disappoint. With a price of $58++, it is considered in the more affordable range compared to Triple 3 and The Line. And the quality and spread of the food is impressive.
The snow crab legs are fresh and sweet. The oysters are good too. And they always manage to refill before the food run out.
The roast and bbq section has a good variety as well. There is roast beef, flank steak, chicken wings, pork belly etc. However, the taste of the roast beef and the flank steak is a tad disappointing. The roast beef is good though.
This is the first time I see a whole table of different types of sushi available in a buffet. However, I did not manage to try any as I was too full. There are many tempura as well. One special tempura is the ginseng tempura. I tried it out of curiosity. It's really bitter. But surprisingly good.
Aside from the spread and the freshness of the food, another thing I like about Todai is the availability of drinks. There are both cold and hot drinks included in the buffet.
One drawback is the interior design of the restaurant. Being in MBS, I expected it to be posh. However, it is more of a family restaurant. The lack of round tables also make it inconvenient for family dinners.
All in all, I would definitely come back again. In fact, I am going back again this week.
Snow crab leg, oysters, ginseng tempura.
