Much hyped. We went in with great expectations. The live stations were just churning out mass produced tasteless dishes. The chef said he was the only person and hence had no time to customise the dishes (though the website and the menu card claimed that you can have things cooked as you like). Lobsters were just burned and tasteless. Shrimps... More

Farida was the best thing that happened during that day. We started off with a very unwelcoming hostess from Phillippines, however thanks God we had Farida as our waiter to recover our bad experience and carry on with an exceptional customer service throughout our dinner experience despite of some misfortunes from other staff. She is a great asset to the... More

This is a buffet restaurant with many stations cooking fresh food to order. The food is excellent. The only reason I've not given them a 5 rating is the mosquitoes. They really need to get them sorted.

A taste of the Far East. Step into Bamboo Lagoon where a taste of Far Eastern and fusion cuisine meets the exotic: a scattering of huts, bridges, and waterways, rushing waterfalls and live entertainment all add to this fun dining experience. Indulge in the sumptuous seafood buffet where Polynesian, Indonesian and Thai influences offer an excellent selection of healthy choices. An exciting and entertaining live Polynesian band will complete the experience.
