When you think of buffet in Singapore you’ll definitely think of The Line.
I had 39% off by making my reservation online.
Modern surroundings designed by Adam Tihany and stylish bites from our enthusiastic chefs make this all-day dining restaurant the place to be. International cuisine is featured over 16 culinary stations, while the Bar offers a large selection of premium wines, juices and smoothies.
From my impression, they had:
- Salad – a variety of leaves, dressings, and premixed salads. They have a wide range of toppings (think along the line of sun dried tomatoes or olives) too.
- Japanese –soba, sushi and sashimi.
- Seafood – prawns, crabs, mussels and oysters. On Thursday night, they have better stuff like lobsters.
- Western – usually some fish or meat, and some vegetables. There will be a roast meat of the day.
- Soup – there will be western and chinese soup of the day.
- Italian – pasta and pizza.
- Chinese cooked dishes –typical cai fan dishes.
- Chinese dimsum – char siew bao and some others.
- Local chinese – think char siew, roast pork.
- Malay – I only remember satay. There should be nasi briyani or mee siam too.
- Indian – roti prata (not that good), naan, and some other indian bread, with a variety of curries and stews.
- Crêpe– a lot of ingredients to choose from, to customise the filling inside your crêpe.
- Cakes and desserts – most of them weren’t good.
- Ice cream – about 5 flavors to choose from, and a wide range of toppings.
- Fondue – only one type of chocolate. they have marshmallows, meringues, madelaines and all sorts of fruits for it.
- Fruits – fresh fruits, which are common fruits in Singapore.
Their selection of salad was pretty wide.
The roast of the day changes from day to day. There was once when I went for dinner and they had roast beef (which wasn’t fantastic though).
They were not really good based on my previous visits, so I skipped most of them.
I couldn’t resist this though, as I like strawberry shortcake.
There were cold crab, mussels, cold prawns, and everyone’s favourite OYSTERS at the seafood counter. Everything was very fresh.
Their sashimi was very fresh! They had salmon belly too! it was way better than normal salmon. However, I was disappointed upon not seeing swordfish today. They had swordfish on my previous 2 visits. I think I ate my price worth with just sashimi alone.
Cream of carrot
The soup changes daily. I had lobster bisque once. They also offered another soup, which was like a Chinese soup.
The western cooked dishes weren’t very good.
From the local delicacies counter. I didn’t try these.
The crêpe however, was really good! I love it. You get to choose your own filling, and then proceed to the ice cream counter to top it off with ice cream and toppings.
The tiramisu was kind of lousy. The strawberry shortcake was quite nice. Not the best but I won’t mind having it again. The crème brûlée was good! it was cold inside, like how I want it to be, and the sugar was burnt and crispy outside.
Food: 9/10 (seafood and sashimi), 7/10 (the rest)
Value: 9/10 (with discount)
Overall: do make your reservation online as it makes no sense to pay the full price while other diners have it at a discounted rate! I would return to have this buffet again, definitely. The sashimi, oysters and some desserts are enough to attract me back.
