Nice variety of Singaporean cuisine as part of their National Day celebration. Chili crab, however, was not that great but everything else was good. A little pricey though. Could have offered free flow of drinks for that price.

Lunch here was excellent. A really good spread of Peranakan food and I enjoyed it very much. I have to mention the traditional "kueh" - they were great and brought back memories for me.

This is our favourite place for buffet. We like the durian pengat, sashimi and nonya cuisine. All the staff are very friendly, especially Kate Fong, Sandie Thung and Linda Ho at reservation.

breakfast was a thing of beauty. Breakfast was the most opulent thing I have ever seen, there was a station full of western cooked breakfast items, a station full of Indian cooked breakfast options, a station full of Singaporean breakfast items, a station for eggs...More
