Are you really a Singaporean foodie if you aren’t a buffet-tarian? Yes, that’s a word I just conjured up but it’s nothing next to the imaginative creations waiting to greet you at the best hotel buffets in Singapore.
With self-service back on the menu, you should lose the belt, slip into your most comfortable walking shoes, and head on down to these 10 hotels.
1. The Line (Shangri-La)
The Line is the master of live cooking stations and creates an experience to be savoured. Its famed Flavours of the World buffet is one of the best buffet experiences in Singapore, ever.
Featuring an expansive series of Western, Japanese, Middle Eastern, Indian and Southeast Asian dishes, it’s hard to go wrong here no matter where your tastes lie. My personal favourite was the authentic Peranakan fare that floored me with its exquisite flavours.
Another station not to miss is the seafood. If you are a fan, come on Thursday evenings for the Seafood Extravaganza. I still smile at the wonderful memories of their dessert counter. An easy first place.
2. Estate Restaurant (Hilton Singapore Orchard)
Hilton Singapore Orchard describes its buffet selection as a gourmet upgrade to classic regional dishes and I couldn’t agree more. There is no doubt about the freshness and quality of the ingredients but they are given a new dimension entirely in the way they are transformed into irresistible dishes by the talented chefs here.
The Lunch Buffet lets you choose from a Raw & Seafood Kitchen, Salad Bar, Soups, Western & Grill Kitchen, Noodle Kitchen, Dim Sum, Wok, Fry & Premium Barbecue Kitchen, and Desserts. The Dinner Buffet is very similar but emphasises on Skewers at the Grill station, adds a Meats station, and tacks on Wraps alongside the Noodle stop.

3. Greenhouse (Dusit Thani Laguna Singapore)
The Greenhouse at Dusit Thani Singapore is the perfect encapsulation of ‘come for the gorgeous views, stay for excellent food’. The lush forest-themed restaurant looks over the vast expanse of the Masters Course while diners enjoy a curated selection from their Thai, Japanese, Chinese, Mediterranean and Indian (available only for dinner) kitchens.
Despite the wide selection, high quality and virtually peerless location, Greenhouse is one of the most affordable hotel buffet options for lunch and dinner in Singapore.

4. Atrium Restaurant (Holiday Inn Singapore Atrium)
Takeaway buffet? Yes, please! That’s just one of the unique features of dining at Atrium Restaurant at Holiday Inn Singapore Atrium. Adept at enticing scrupulous diners with ingenious creativity, it has pulled out all the stops with its latest halal buffet spread of over 40 dishes.
Selected and fine-tuned from local and international cuisines, this eclectic culinary experience is an adventure for the senses. Now that self-service has resumed, you can get up close and personal with your favourites even while you discover all-new culinary wonders. Their menu is continually refreshed, meaning that your palate will always be in for a surprise.
June and July usher in an extended Western Food Corner. Enjoy Caprese Salad, Bow-Tie Pasta Salad with Antipasto and Smoked Chicken, Cioppino Seafood Stew, Focaccia Bread Pizza with Pastrami and Salami, Truffle Mushroom Risotto and the intriguing Pasta and Carving Station.
Best of all, adults eat at half price and every child 5 years old and younger dines for free with every paying adult.

5. The Orchard Cafe (The Orchard Hotel Singapore)
The Orchard Cafe’s Flame & Grill Buffet is their new international spread that focuses on the food culture of South America and Europe’s Iberian Peninsula. The Argentinian and Spanish-inspired culinary extravaganza runs from 9 May 2022 to 31 July 2022.
One of the most iconic features of this cuisine is asado, which is meat cooked on a parilla grill or open fire, just as it has been done on the Pampas for centuries. Hear the sizzle as talented chefs slide the meat straight from the flames onto your plate. The flavourful meat is served with the classic tangy chimichurri sauce.
The buffet is sandwiched between a complimentary cocktail based on Argentinian wines served at the start of the buffet, and regional desserts at the end.
Need another reason to try out this fantastic spread? The Orchard Cafe is running a special promotion between 9 May 2022 and 30 June 2022 that gives you a special 25% discount!

6. Asian Market Cafe (Fairmont Singapore)
The rather plainly named Asian Market Cafe is anything but plain with its buffet spread. With a good seafood station, a Japanese corner I thoroughly enjoyed, and a range of popular Middle Eastern options, it is a firm contender for an enjoyable meal out.
Others may appreciate the fine tipples but my eye was immediately drawn to the Milo Dinosaur beverage option. If nothing else, that addition to the menu tells you all you need to know about its local focus.
80 Bras Basah Rd, Fairmont Singapore, Level 2, Singapore 189560
+65 6431 6156
Mon to Fri: 12pm – 2.30pm & 6pm – 10pm
Sat & Sun: 12pm – 4pm & 6pm – 10pm
7. Melt Café (Mandarin Oriental)
A buffet restaurant where the patisserie takes centre stage? Count me in! Melt Cafe at the Mandarin Oriental is a melting pot of cultures and cuisines situated in a light-filled, airy setting where the views from the floor to ceiling windows compete with the beautiful spread.
Their extensive buffet presentations are divided into Oysters & Premium Seafood, Royal Tandoori Selection, Signature Lobster Laksa, Japanese Sushi & Sashimi, Outdoor Barbecue Grill Station, European Delights and more.

Daily: 12pm – 2.30pm (Lunch), 6.30pm – 9.30pm (Dinner)
8. Colony (The Ritz-Carlton)
Colony may be billed by The Ritz-Carlton as ‘A true taste of Singapore’ but its buffet spread is decidedly international as well. In the mood to really splurge? No, I mean really splurge? The Vintage Champagne Brunch (S$798) available only on Sundays may be value for money with its free flow of Cristal 2013.
I have to add that the Ritz-Carlton experience anywhere in the world is a step above, and the Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore is no exception. Their Seafood Dinner (S$102) is my personal recommendation.
9. Alley on 25 (Andaz Singapore)
For something not quite the ordinary buffet, consider Andaz Singapore‘s Weekend & Public Holiday Lazy Breakfast (S$59). Instead of the usual set of dishes that you would find at virtually every other buffet, the focus here is, as the name plainly says, the lazy breakfast.
The food is divided into Continental and Mains. The former features local fruits, cereal, a bakery basket, salad, a cheese plate, waffles and more. From the latter, you can opt for an insane range of egg preparations as well as local classics such as kaya toast, nasi lemak, laksa, congee, dim sum and chicken noodle soup. If you are feeling especially lazy, get a free flow of prosecco, wine and beer (S$45).
5 Fraser Street, Andaz Singapore, Level 5, Singapore 189354
+65 6408 1288
Sat, Sun & PH: 12pm – 2.30pm
10. Landmark Restaurant (Village Hotel Bugis)
While not the most extensive on our list, the Landmark Restaurant‘s buffet is nothing to sneeze at. Their halal spread features a delectable spread selected from the best of International, Local Delights, Western, Seafood and Indian cuisines.
However, the focus is decidedly local as the Goreng-Goreng and Cracker stations can attest. I enjoyed the theatrics of the live pizza station as much as the delicious pizzas themselves. Hopefully, they will add more options to the 2 currently available. If you venture to the Seafood Corner, make sure it is on a day they are serving the Salmon Fish Head Curry.
