We went as a party of 15 adults to eat at the Sakura International Buffet at Clementi Road. None of us having eaten here before.
The entrance to the restaurant starts at the car park, going down what initially appeared as a formidable flight of spiral stairs to the lowest level of the building. There are no lifts, but access is possible by driving down the road to the unloading or delivery bay at the end of the road. There’s a dark brown door that leads to the main entrance of the restaurant without having to negotiate steps. It’s possible therefore, to have wheel chair access.
The various types of food laid out is simply amazing! You could help yourself to the buffet from a selection that includes all the Japanese standards like sushi, sashimi, tempura and teppanyaki, complemented by dim sum, lobster salad, grilled meats, some Italian, Asian and Indian dishes, not counting the wide desert spread form fruits, waffles, ice cream including their specialities: Bird Nest Egg Tarts, Molten Lava Cake with Haagen Dazs Belgian Chocolate; and tea or coffee.
The layout of food is very systematic and neat, dishes clearly labelled and contents refilled promptly. The variety of different food is impressive and has to been seen, but don’t expect gourmet or Master Chef quality food! They use disposable wooden chopsticks and paper napkins, but metal spoons, forks and knives are available. It is certainly worth your dollar if you wish to indulge. Good venue for couples, large groups even for corporate events. The lighting is more than adequate, the sound level decent. No need to shout across the table. There’s ample seating, with a view of the greenery outside.
To sample the variety of food, do browse through my pictures, as a picture speaks a thousand words!
The establishment serves Halal food only, so everyone is welcome. There’s no WiFi. Credit cards are accepted as well as Nets or cash. The are many car park lots available and payable under the URA coupon scheme. Remember: To avoid the spiral staircase for the infirm and elderly, use the Loading Bay at the end of the car park drive.
