I was booked in for afternoon tea on the 20th November 2016 and it was an amazing experience. The food was really tasty and well presented. The staff were all very helpful and friendly and as lone traveler i was put at ease from the start. The Tiffin room itself was clean and impressionable. All in all i loved my... More

We visited the tiffin room for afternoon tea which was a delight. Great variety three tier tea tray , they let us swap out fish for other sandwiches. What is unique is the buffet where you can try Asian cuisine including buns, dumplings etc. Singapore sling cocktail is also a must. It is also great value of comparing to London... More

This elegant room was the perfect setting for an amazing breakfast. From dim sum to specially made omelets, the breakfast menu will leave you very very happy.

This is the 3rd time taking high tea at Raffles over the past 10 years and each time it never amazes me what a wonderful tradition this is. While not cheap and you do have to pre-book at least the day before, it is worth making the time out of your busy schedule to find this oasis from the Singapore... More

When in Singapore you just have to go to The Tiffin Room in Raffles for afternoon tea. We also ordered a couple of Singapore Slings. Food was plentiful and excellent. Scones and cakes are in abundance from the buffet. Only downer was that you enter via a side door... would have been nice to have entered via the hotel lobby,... More

Afternoon tea in the Tiffin Room is something you should experience when in Singapore. To dress up and experience an elegant restaurant with exquisite service is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. During our stay we also had breakfast here twice and dinner once. Breakfast is one of the best I've ever had. Looking forward to our next visit

We loved the whole experience. From the moment we were shown to our seats until we left we were made to feel special by our waiter. We were given extra sandwiches and tea and the buffet really adds to the afternoon tea experience- especially the savoury snacks and fruit. We both had Singapore Slings. You simply can't go to Raffles... More

Three of us went for afternoon tea in the Tiffin Room. What a great experience in a old colonial setting with tasty food and first class service. The food selection is far better than most top hotel afternoon teas - fresh fruit, sandwiches, great scone selection, spicy pasties, dim sum, cakes plus a selection of great teas (hot and cold)....

We were really looking forward to High Tea at the Tiffin Room at Raffles Hotel and were not disappointed.. From the friendly, attentive staff to the fine high tea selection served from individual three tier silver cake stand on each table. The waiters were knowledgeable on the types of tea available. The dim sum and dumpling selection was freshly made.... More

This is a first rate Buffet which excells in quality ingredients and their preparation. Have taken both breakfast and the Indian Buffet Dinner and both can be highly recommended. The obvious downside is the pricing which whilst livable with for the food, is exorbitant for drinks.

Description
Dining at Tiffin Room is an essential experience at Raffles Singapore. At lunch and dinner, the curry buffet is a hot favourite both with tourists and locals alike. Expect authentic North Indian specialities, including vegetarian curries for non-meat diners. In the afternoon, the restaurant partakes in a classic English tradition and serves High Tea. Delicate morsels are arranged on a tiered tea cosy, while what does not fit is displayed as a buffet. Breakfast too is served at Tiffin Room, featuring a delectable international spread. Tiffin translates into "a light mid-day meal". Enjoying it with curry on Sunday was an essential aspect of colonial life in the early 20th century, with Raffles Singapore serving it since 1899. To recognise this tradition, the main dining room was officially named Tiffin Room in 1976.
