Singapore – One of our favourite national pastime in Singapore is to eat everywhere and anywhere. Buffets are probably one of the best mode to indulge endlessly once in awhile, with no lack of options around. Our list of the best buffets in Singapore has three main considerations – quality, variety and value for money. Here are some of what we consider the best buffets in Singapore after trying numerous over the years.
The award winning Edge at Pan Pacific Singapore impressed us few years ago and it still does even today. With seven open kitchens and a wide variety of cuisines including Chinese, Malay, Indian, Singaporean, Peranakan and Japanese, this is one of the longest buffet line in Singapore which I have been to. Quality is good given the wide offerings, and is probably one of the few buffets which does local delights well. The most value for money option is the lunch buffet at S$58++ per person (except Sundays); otherwise, dinner buffet starts from S$88++ per person. [Read more here…]

Ash & Elm
Located at Intercontinental Singapore, the space at Ash & Elm is gorgeous from its white translucent ceiling where there is a good dose of natural light. The highlight of Ash & Elm is the three culinary theatres which include a charcuterie and cheese room, wood-fired oven and an open charcoal-grill kitchen. For lunch, the European restaurant runs a semi-buffet lunch from S$38++ with a choice of one main course, while a full fledged Sunday Champagne Brunch Buffet (S$138++) awaits on weekends.

Ikoi Japanese Restaurant
Possibly the only pure Japanese buffet I have returned to over the years, Ikoi restuarant at Hotel Miramar has a strong loyal following. The lunch buffet is priced at S$38++ per person, which is quite value for money. Go straight for the handrolls and sashimi.Where: 401 Havelock Road, Singapore 169631

Located in Grand Park Orchard Hotel, Mitzo is all about redefining Cantonese cuisine with a modern twist, as evident from its contemporary interior design and a full-fledged cocktail bar. The Weekend Dim Sum buffet is priced at S$68++ per person, with a wide range of more than forty dishes, from its appetisers & soups, to main courses, rice & noodles, classic dim sum dishes to desserts. It is challenging to try every single item, but at least I can safely say I was largely impressed with the dishes I tried, especially for a buffet. Don’t miss the tender Mitzo Special Barbecued Pork.

Our favourite Italian buffet, Basilico at Regent Singapore offers a semi-dinner buffet concept at S$88++ per person with a choice of mains and a solid buffet offering of antipasti and desserts. The buffet line is not the most extensive of all, but it makes up for its good quality. If you are free on weekdays, you can enjoy the buffet at S$55-++ per person. The desserts at Basilico are definitely some of the best in Singapore for buffets.

The buffet restuarant at Mandarin Orchard Singapore has a strong focus on Japanese food to complement its International selections. The sashimi, sushi and seafood spread is relatively good, though you should also save space for the roast meats and a la minute grilled meats. Dinner buffet starts from S$88++ per person, though there is a perpetual promotion where you can enjoy 50% off for every second adult when payment is made using any DBS/POSB/UOB credit or debit card.

One of the most value for money High Tea Buffet in town is at D9 Cakery located in Hilton Singapore. For S$41++ per person, you get to enjoy a buffet spread of Singapore flavours with dishes such as satay, laksa as well as dim sum selections.

On weekends and public holidays only, Yan Ting at The St. Regis Singapore does a Dim Sum Brunch Buffet in the ala carte style with more than sixty dishes to choose from, not limited to dim sum items. The price is probably one of the most expensive dim sum buffet in Singapore at S$108++ per person, though you are really paying for the fine dining ambience and good quality dishes. The menu is split into Dim Sum, Soup, Appetisers, Seafood, Poultry, Beef and Pork, Vegetables, Rice and Noodles, Cantonese Favourites and Desserts.
