We recently went for dinner for the North Indian buffet. The selection of curries and condiments were vast and the quality was excellent. The buffet signs indicated gluten free which was so refreshing to see. There were also a number of chef specials that could be served directly to the table. The restaurant was very busy being a Sunday but... More

White table cloths, silverware, white jackets, clinching of crystal and china and all the details one would expect when having tea or lunch at an English estate back in the early 1900's. The restaurant oozes charm and nostalgia. The service is immaculate as one would expect from Raffles. Breakfast is also served here every morning for those staying in the... More

Went to Tiffin room because Royal China was preparing for renovation. The servant told us the room was full so that they cannot serve us. We were then lead to the restaurant and it was almost empty with only a few tables of Caucasians. Having seen the empty restaurant, they changed their excuse to the dress code. We felt that... More

My family and I stayed at the Raffles Hotel over the weekend. Our booking came with breakfast. We totally enjoyed our breakfast at The Tiffin Room. The staff were very nice and gave good, attentive service. My daughter enjoyed her pancakes very much.

A visit to Singapore wouldn't be complete without a visit to the famous Raffles Hotel. Firstly we went to the Long Bar to enjoy a Singapore Sling which indeed was up to expectation. Following day we visited for afternoon tea which we booked (and you do need to book) 4 days prior. Dressed for the occasion we were slightly disappointed... More

We had the dinner buffet. Good variety of dishes & staff were very helpful to explain each dish & point out the vegetarian dishes to our vegan guest. Value for money but be prepared for a slow dinner as wise to have small portions & try as much variety as you can

First time we've attended High Tea and I was a pretty disappointed. Gluten free tasted like it was prepackaged (still yummy, but not home-made) The harpist made this afternoon, the ambiance was beautiful because of her. Service staff constantly telling us that they'd be with us soon. Or a colleague would help in a minute. Dinner set/cutlery/etc was pretty knackered... More

Nothing Grand Left of this old Lady When you have an image of a place that you have had for many years I think the disappointment is greater because you have an expectation. I know it's closing down In parts for renovation, but I found the whole place commercialised without any ambiance over priced living on its reputation . The... More

Lovely setting and environment however the High Tea was very disappointing. Menu consisted of very plain sandwiches with no special attention to fillings. These could be made at home. English cakes were average, nothing to rave about. No high end patisserie cakes. Buffet consisted of dim sims and dumpling that were hard. Savoury buffet items consisted of only chicken curry...

Description
Dining at Tiffin Room is an essential experience at Raffles Singapore. At lunch and dinner, the curry buffet is a hot favourite both with tourists and locals alike. Expect authentic North Indian specialities, including vegetarian curries for non-meat diners. In the afternoon, the restaurant partakes in a classic English tradition and serves High Tea. Delicate morsels are arranged on a tiered tea cosy, while what does not fit is displayed as a buffet. Breakfast too is served at Tiffin Room, featuring a delectable international spread. Tiffin translates into "a light mid-day meal". Enjoying it with curry on Sunday was an essential aspect of colonial life in the early 20th century, with Raffles Singapore serving it since 1899. To recognise this tradition, the main dining room was officially named Tiffin Room in 1976.
