Buffets

Post by Adamkl » Mon, 23 Mar 2009 2:47 pm

Hi,

Can you guys let me know if Singapore hotels do all you can eat and drink buffets similar to those in Dubai?

I am moving from Dubai to Singapore and know the buffet will be something sorely missed!!

Cheers

Yes - just about all the major hotels do the all you can eat/drink. Most also come with a soft-drink only, alcohol, and some even with a kid's pricing.

Yeah, it was the only way to combat the "Singapore Kiasu Buffet Syndrome"! :lol: It is pretty effective but only if they ensure the patrons don't bring doggy bags and stuff 'em full under the table! :o

I thought the buffet fine was an Sg urban myth, along with being fined for not flushing the toilet. I cant imagine there's a department in the police call Anti-Flush Squad.

Just get the local tailors to knock up a pair of plastic lined false pocket trousers,
you can waddle out with food for a week, without getting fined.

I tried the Ritz Carlton, Shangrila, and four seasons hotels and I found the first two just too much, just overwhelming, the four seasons was a much nicer low key do.

Yeh Four Seasons (if you have kids - we don't). I'm also with QRM on the other suggestions....HTH
