Several restaurants offer an eat-all-you-can buffet meal with a fixed price to people. “All you can eat” buffet is a famous meal-serving system for people who love a wide variety of food and like to eat a lot. There are various kinds of buffets, ranging from pricey and luxury hotel brunch to the classic hometown diners.

Whether you’re celebrating a successful event, hanging out with friends, or want to eat a huge meal, we’ve come up with a list of the best buffet restaurants in Singapore to eat at your heart’s content.

The Line offers a cold seafood counter with crabs, prawns, lobsters, mussels, and scallops served on the ice bed. This specific counter is the highlight of this restaurant since it attracts attention and is highly recommended for seafood lovers. There are 16 theatre kitchens in this restaurant, which features approximately 100 different dishes from various countries such as Japan, India, Italy, and China.

You can eat the dishes while it’s still hot because the food is cooked freshly at the kitchen’s live cooking stations. The restaurant offers different types of food for the different days of the week. Tuesdays and Thursdays are Marine Harvest food, which makes seafood lovers visit the place on these days, while the rest of the days highlight the international cuisine with slight changes in food types. If you go for a buffet meal at this restaurant, don’t forget to save room for dessert because they offer local and Western-style desserts.

My husband planned to take me to this awesome place on my birthday. Being vegetarian, I generally don’t get good options in multi-cuisine restaurants, but The Line was really good.

I had mostly Indian vegetarian food, and the taste was out of the world. Naan and Makhni daal combo was the best I ever had. I would love to go there again!

Winnie Goh

Super friendly and attentive staff. A big thank you to Chew & Jonathan for making sure we had an amazing time! I came here for a friend’s birthday, and we were blown away by the timely service – especially when The Line crew surprised us with a birthday cake.

I would come here again just for the service alone!

I went there yesterday morning as a walk-in for a buffet breakfast. Carousel never disappoints me with their food variety. I had a very good breakfast. I love the ambiance. They even provided me a slice of complimentary birthday cake as requested.

Very professional customer service! If I could rate more stars, I would love to! Thumbs up to the whole team and especially Wan. I highly recommended for halal breakfast.

Tausif Ahmad

I have been there three times. The food and service are outstanding—plenty of varied food options. Dessert spread is hugely recommended.

Even the coffee and ice cream are great. Lunch, High-tea, and Dinner Buffet are all top class. The Japanese cuisine selection is excellent too.

What differentiates this buffet restaurant from other international buffets in the country is its serene atmosphere. The Dining Room lets you eat and enjoy your favorites to your heart’s content without any people waiting in line or distracting noise from large groups of customers. The most beautiful thing is diners can see the lovely garden with a waterfall outside that from the restaurant’s glass walls and the classy indoor furniture. 

Fresh oysters can be quite expensive in Singapore; however, to satisfy an oyster lover at a great price, make a booking at this restaurant and enjoy the unlimited flow of the best oysters for a better price and a good quality. Another customer’s favorite at this international buffet is the thick-cut and super fresh salmon sashimi. You can also find high-quality prawns, scallops, mussels, and crayfish at the same counter. Wednesdays are ladies days since they get 50% off the luxurious meal.

Very delicious and fresh cake! Full of durian umami. The service was great; the lady is responsible and attentive. We called a week ago to reserve the cake but had forgotten about it, and the staff called to remind us.

Chong Peng How

Lovely setting with the waterfall in the background. We had the ala carte menu, a good mix of Asian and Western dishes—service if friendly and attentive, which made our day. We also got a complimentary slice of cake for celebrating our birthday.

Customer Reviews

Amy Manen

The food is very high quality by buffet standards, and the staff will set 3 plates on the table the moment you sit down; one with a sushi platter, a mixed seafood bowl with prawns and lobster, and a plate of oysters.

Melt Restaurant has a relaxing vibe to it. We went on a Sunday night, and while busy, the restaurant was not at capacity. During Phase 3, buggers are not allowed to have customers walk around to choose what they want. The staff are amazing; they are always cheery and watching over your every need.

Florian Parzhuber

Amazing service, food, freshness, and seafood buffet. The staff is extremely polite and professional, and the service is stellar. The Western, Indian, and Chinese food selections, as well as the desserts, were heavenly. I can especially recommend the oysters and grilled Turkey.
