The buffet is very extensive, inluding Singapore Chilli Crab and also Ginger Crab. Fresh seafood, (prawns, oysters,mussels) are in profusion as is other Asian specialities, such as sushi. Our evenings were made very special by the excellent service... More

This is a great restaurant for entertaining large groups or enjoying a delectable buffet with friends. Breakfasts are ample as well with different stands for breads, cakes and muffins, a variety of cereals, eggs, fried noodles, waffles, pancakes, and fruit. It might be good to add more local favorites for tourists to sample. Prices were quite reasonable. What makes this... More

There was also a substantial choices of Korean & Indian food,possibly to cater to the guests profile. What's lacking was our local favs like fried carrot cake & dim sum like har kow/siew mai.

Restaurant got a nice big table for my dinner gathering. Everyone had something delightful to eat...salads, jelly, cakes, laksa... Wallet friendly too as they offered senior citizen n kids' discounts even on a public holiday.

Excellent local and international cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food is good. What made the meals more appetizing is the friendly staff: Mohamed - Restr Manager - good skills and eye for details. Ikhsan- server, hardworking and Dilah - server, always with a smile. Keep it up ! Service is what makes a world of difference.

Food overall was ok but the replenishing of food was very slow and I guess due to under staffing service was not great too.

Was there for Christmas Eve dinner with 10 others......the buffet was pretty sufficient but towards the last hour or so, the live section was hardly manned or replenished. The biggest disappointment was that the dinner was to be accompanied with free flow of beer, wine & soft drinks......we had to constantly remind the service staff to top up even for... More

they have a very few veg options, hence if you are vegetarian, this would not really be a place you want to have a buffet.

Staying in The Quays

Neighbourhood Profile
The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will take you through the three Quays of the city, each offering a very different atmosphere. Boat Quay features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer. Weekends at Robertson Quay and Martin Road also give a peek into the lives of expats in Singapore, as the riverfront teems with joggers, dog walkers, and those getting their caffeine fix over brunch or enjoying a burger and a beer. No matter what you’re up for, the three Quays have something to keep you happy, day or night.
