Had a business breakfast there today. Just dont bother. Had to ask 3 times for order to be taken. In end took over half an hr for food to arrive and it was cold when it did. Saving grace was they only charged for 2 meals, but so disappointing for a 5 star hotel.

Food is ok, not that fantastic. Need to pay upfront to confirm reservation and will be forfeited if not turn up. Not really good practice. CHOPE should look into this. If I call myself, don't need to pay first. Using CHOPE need to pay, so next time don't use CHOPE unless this issue is resolved.

Great variety of cuisines in one setting anyone would say it's value-for-money - Imagine free flow of lobsters (in several renditions) oysters and sashimi. We were very pleased with the quality.

The buffett for breakfast and lunch had Indian food, Chinese food and western food. They do not excel at any of the cuisines but they are all good quality and enough variety to make everyone in the party happy. Perfect if you are staying at hotel but probably not worth a trip outside of that.

As buffets go this was decent. I am not the biggest fan of buffets and for the money would rather 've served, however good choice and really friendly staff. Would go again and much better value than the overrated colony at the ritz Carlton next door.

We had a fantastic dinner buffet! Both me, my mom, and sister. There’s a wide variety of food choices and the price wasn’t as costly as we had thought. I definitely loved the dessert and of course, the seafood 😉. Innah, if I recall, and the other staff were all very friendly. We even received a free Shirley temple! I... More

Definitely​ the best place to be at for a dinner buffet! I brought my mom here to celebrate her 55th birthday!! She absolutely loved every single station.

Description
With creativity and imagination we have transformed the dining experience. Chefs in show kitchens present a multi-cultural cooking theatre. At any time of the day select from cuisine ranging giant baskets of fruits bring bursts of colour; the wine bar itself is a vivid backlit pink. The space is transitionary, designed for changing moods from muted to energetic up to the fresh and airy garden views. You could dine here every night of the week and the only similarity in experience would be the excellent quality of the food.

Staying in Marina Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighbourhood in the traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars, and other attractions all geared towards pure entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo opportunity for visitors and locals alike. The ArtScience Museum always has a top-quality exhibition, and Gardens by the Bay is a fascinating manifestation of the government’s vision of Singapore as a “city in a garden”. Enticing Marina Bay is well worth a visit.
