Its our family’s 6th or 7th CNY reunion dinner at MELT cafe. Although we have other cheaper options, we stick by our trust in MELT cafe as each reunion we can truly enjoy the night gathering as a family with the rush to finish our...meal within a stipulated time. Food service quality has always been consistent. Thats what kept us going back each year as we know we’re in good hand of a great professional team. Special shout out to Ganesan & Kei.

Underrated and spectacular. Cuisine from a variety of cultures including local cuisines. Everything is kept hot, fresh and refilled. Lovely room. Amazing seafood options from lobster to fresh oysters, even sushi options. I fell in love with the Singaporean Laksa which is so flavorful. At...first, it looks like just a buffet - but each 'station' offers such a lovely variety.More

Service is ok But when we visited which was the festive period, Melt was extremely busy and therefore rather chaotic and for a buffet arrangement, not sure how...Covid friendly it was. $$$More

Visited Melt for the first time after 2 years and what a bitter disappointment. The quality of food is just poor with the BBQ station having some lamb chops and prawns, gone are the premium cuts and prawns that one would expect for a buffet...at $150net per person. Back in the restaurant, the sheer lack of service is apparent with a robot clearing dirty plates throughout the restaurant and would not be out of place in a hawker centre, but at MO? 5 Star hotels in Singapore has never so disappointed and while typing this sitting here with stomach pain and know as my new years resolution to make a big detour around Melt. Shame as this was our favourite place to go to.More

It was the first time after COVID and Melt cafe food spread has improved a lot with quality food that is fresh and very well cooked. Services from the staffs were exception! At any point in time when attention is required, they will come to...you in less than 10 seconds. Super great job even when the restaurant was almost full.

We booked the Melt Cafe because we had been before (outside of Xmas it is exquisite) and wanted an upmarket brunch. Sadly we were disappointed. They had overbooked it. It was crowded and overpacked and had a terrible atmosphere. People were 'grabby' with the food...and much of the good stuff had gone within 1 hour of it starting. The service was ok but the atmosphere was truly dreadful. It appears that they decided to pack it with as many people as possible, irrespective of the consequence this had for the experience. A very poor value for money proposition and would highly recommend not going to the Mandarin for a brunch of any kind. What a disappointment.More

l'm sorry l can't recall. But there's price differential on weekday & weekend. I suggest you go on weekday coz chances of getting a table is higher, especially durongvthis festive season period.

The hotel has a small car park space which might not be available. You can park at the multi storey carpark at the mall next to the hotel and walk. It is about 100 metres.
