Buffet Highlights: The live meat and grill stations, fresh and wide spread of seafood and sashimi counter are some of my top picks. (tRP’s review)
What Panda say: This is the most value for money SG50 hotel buffet promotion this season in our opinion. Theoretically, you just need one diner above 50 years old and you enjoy 50% off for a party of 8. The next family or class reunion gathering spot sounds like a ultra good plan. The best part is that Triple Three is one of those above average hotel buffets in terms of ambience, quality and spread in my opinion.
