We’ve rounded up the best buffets in this food capital for the ultimate indulgence. Your only enemy is your own tummy!
If you love local cuisine, Straits Kitchen is the place to go.
Indulge in an endless buffet line-up of refined perennial hawker favourites – we love the Hainanese Chicken Rice and Singapore Laksa in particular – prepared a la minute by the friendly chefs at the open kitchens.
From $52+ (lunch)/ $68+ (dinner).
Grand Hyatt Singapore, 10 Scotts Rd, Singapore 228211
NEXT: J65, Hotel Jen Tanglin →
Hotel Jen’s in-house restaurant J65 offers a decent spread of local cuisine, but eyes on the prize: you’re here for the salads. Bear this in mind: Embracing the Singaporean spirit of getting our money’s worth, it must be quite something if we’re recommending salad at a buffet.
Finish off by sampling all the Nyonya desserts, from banana cakes to kueh lapis (layered butter cake).
From $55+ (dinner).
Hotel Jen Tanglin, 1A Cuscaden Rd, Singapore 249716
NEXT: LIME, PARKROYAL On Pickering →
We love the vibrant ambience at Lime, where chefs dish out local, Southeast Asian, and international delights at the open kitchens.
Signature dishes range from Asian dishes like Thai Green Chicken Curry to the healthier Herb-crusted Cod Fillet; the Hand-Pulled Pizza is great, but go easy on the filling dough so you’ll have space for the crowd favourite Key Lime Pie on the long dessert table.
From $48+ (lunch)/ $65+ (dinner).
PARKROYAL On Pickering, 3 Upper Pickering St, Singapore 058289
NEXT: Ikoi, Miramar Hotel →
A non-descript, humble Japanese restaurant, this is a hidden gem that only true Japanese foodies know about.
Stuff yourself silly with sashimi, tempura, grilled dishes, and other Japanese dishes. (Pro tip: go easy on the sushi so the rice doesn’t fill you up; instead, show no mercy to the sashimi.)
Our only gripe is that dessert isn’t included, but for the quality of the food at this price, you’re definitely already getting your money’s worth.
Hotel Miramar, 401 Havelock Rd, Singapore 169631
NEXT: Edge, Pan Pacific Hotel →
The vibrant ambience at Edge, with seven live food theatres, makes for an interactive dining experience.
Plus, plate clearing is done promptly to facilitate you going all out – we’re heading straight the fresh seafood, including Japanese Scallops, Alaskan King Crabs, and more.
From $48+ (lunch)/ $78+ (dinner).
Pan Pacific Singapore, 7 Raffles Boulevard, Marina Square, Singapore 039595
NEXT: Melt, Mandarin Oriental →
Fans of Indian cuisine are in for a treat – suffice to say Melt’s Indian food station melted our hearts. The Royal Tandoori Selection includes Tandoori oven-baked chicken, mutton, prawns and fish cubes, served with raita, chutney, naan, and dhal.
You might be hard-pressed to make space for the European and Asian spreads after that, but do – you’ll also find a roast and carving corner, as well as an outdoor barbecue station.
From $56+ (lunch)/ $68+ (dinner).
Mandarin Oriental, 5 Raffles Ave, Singapore 039797
NEXT: The Line, Shangri-La Hotel →
Here, an international selection of culinary delights is featured at 16 theatre kitchens.
A celebration of Singapore’s multi-cultural cuisine, you’ll be spoilt for choice with The Line’s local, Chinese, Japanese, and Western cuisines as well as a plethora of fresh cold seafood and more; the bar offers a large selection of premium wines, juices and smoothies.
From $62+ (lunch)/ $79+ (dinner).
Shangri-La Hotel Singapore, 22 Orange Grove Rd, Singapore 258350
NEXT: Rise, Marina Bay Sands Hotel →
Tuck into the generous spread of international cuisine at the luxurious lobby of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel – the laid-back yet lavish ambience has got to be one of our favourites of the lot.
Plus, themed buffet nights on top of the regular buffet spread from Tuesdays to Saturdays, from seafood nights (Tuesdays) to Mediterranean delights (Fridays) and more.
From $52+ (lunch)/ $72+ (dinner).
Marina Bay Sands Hotel, 10 Bayfront Ave, Singapore 018972
NEXT: Straits Kitchen, Grand Hyatt →
