The price was S$88++ and is quite acceptable. However, the spread of food was not so great after all especially too many Indian cuisines included. Service is average but ambiance is good.

Looking at a high end hotel, with a high-end buffet spread, I must say this was worth the money. With an array of dishes, the food selections were delicious and definitely above average expectation.

Loved this restaurant when we were staying at the Mandarin Oriental. The selection of food here is huge, and all cooked to perfection. We ate breakfast here every day and usually skipped lunch because we were so full. Like everything else at th Mandarin Oriental, but it was superb.

Went to this place to eat thinking it was rated as top few buffet in town. But to my disappointment, the lobsters and oyster is very small in size. Oyster always running out. Fruits were not sweet. Overall, it's not worth the price.

Expected more from a mandarin oriental for breakfast. Staff were friendly and the juice of beet, orange and carrot very tasty. The food was just not great. Dim sum just bland, the noodle station also not up to mark. The Indian food was ok. Belgian waffles were good. Overall they need to look at the menu and make some changes

We had the Sunday brunch with free flow champage @Melt Cafe. The food & beverage choice is very broad and the quality of the products is just absolutely awesome. The champagne served with the brunch can come in Classic or Rose flavor of the Veuve Cliquot and everything in unlimited version! Definitely recommended

Description
With creativity and imagination we have transformed the dining experience. Chefs in show kitchens present a multi-cultural cooking theatre. At any time of the day select from cuisine ranging giant baskets of fruits bring bursts of colour; the wine bar itself is a vivid backlit pink. The space is transitionary, designed for changing moods from muted to energetic up to the fresh and airy garden views. You could dine here every night of the week and the only similarity in experience would be the excellent quality of the food.

Staying in Marina Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighbourhood in the traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars, and other attractions all geared towards pure entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo opportunity for visitors and locals alike. The ArtScience Museum always has a top-quality exhibition, and Gardens by the Bay is a fascinating manifestation of the government’s vision of Singapore as a “city in a garden”. Enticing Marina Bay is well worth a visit.
