Personally I don't find the buffet worth eating. I don't understand why it was ranked the #2 best buffet in Sg. I have dine there for a couple of times. They have Prawns, Lobsters, clams as seafood on ice. Quality is consider reasonable. Variety of cooked food is not as much as The Line at Shangri-La or Orchard Cafe. They... More

Food is not bad overall. But the buffet spread is so spread out n even have outdoors that I missed out the grill section altogether! Seafood selection was so-so. It's quite pricey as well, at close to $90 even with 15% discount! Honestly I don't see much value here.

It has been more than a couple of years since I have visited Melt the World Café since I was young, not to mention after they have been recently revamped and renamed as Melt Café. I was initially considering on going elsewhere for a lunch buffet, but I am glad that I chose Melt in the end. The staffs were... More

Poor presentation of food it looked like a messy kitchen rather than a upmarket buffet spread. BBQ station cook portrayed an unwelcoming body language.

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.
