Best Buffets Singapore – Carousel, Colony, Edge, Peppermint, The Line Buffet Prices (2022)

Best-1-for-1-buffet_masthead

Nothing gets Singaporeans going like a hotel buffet. After all, eating is our national hobby. They’re pretty expensive at full price. In the past, thanks to competitive credit card promotions, 1-for-1 hotel buffet offers were aplenty. Well, those were the good ‘ol days. 

Buffets were snuffed out in April 2020, exactly 2 years ago, due to Singapore’s Covid-19 circuit breaker. However, from 30 April 2022 onwards, self-service buffets are once again allowed in Singapore. Yes, you can finally wipe those tears away.

10 Best Hotel International Buffet (2022 prices)

Not all restaurants have rushed into reinstating their buffet bars. And, how much do hotel and international buffets cost now?

Check out the list below to get yourself up to speed with the latest buffet prices before your next hotel buffet gathering with your foodie friends or family.

Generally, weekend lunch buffets cost more than weekend dinner buffets. I mean, you can stuff your face then go out to jalan jalan, right? Prices listed are for lunch/ dinner buffets on weekends:

$39++/ $49++ (child)

Carousel Buffet – $68 to $88++

Located in Orchard at the Royal Plaza on Scotts, Carousel’s international buffet dishes up seafood, Japanese salmon and tuna sashimi, Canadian oysters, lobsters, mud crabs, tiger prawns, snow crab, Korean dishes, and more. It’s certified halal, comes with weekend specials.

While Carousel used to be highly sought-after in the past pre Covid-19 times, recent reviews on Tripadvisor have been subpar with diners complaining that the sashimi is frozen and tasteless, and the once luxurious ambience lacking.

However, Carousel’s buffet is now self-service and halal certified.

Prices: $68++ to $88++ for adults, $39++ to $49++ for children

Colony Buffet – $64 to $102++

Ritz-Carlton Hotel’s Colony restaurant is best known for their afternoon high tea sets. The international buffet dinner was commonly lauded as one of the best luxury buffets in town, and commanded long queues in the past.

Colony’s regular lunch buffet menu is smaller and more curated than the usual international buffet full monty. Expect fresh seafood, sashimi, sushi, local Singaporean fare, grill and rotisserie, dim sum, and the likes.

The seafood dinner buffet menu is pretty similar, although you get a few more dishes in the spread. On Sundays, champagne lovers with $198 or $798 to spare can opt for the vintage champagne brunch package.

Prices: $64 to $102 for adults, $32 to $51 for children aged 6 to 12

Edge Buffet – $88 to $98++

Located on Level 3 of Pan Pacific Hotel, the Edge Food Theatre’s sprawling international buffet holds up to 316 guests at once. The buffet menu is pretty extensive as well, with all the usuals: seafood, sashimi, local dishes, Cantonese roast dishes, plant-based salads, hummus and kebabs, cheeses, hams, sausages, and desserts.

From what we see, Edge’s buffet menu is perhaps one of the most vegetarian-friendly menus around town, with mains like roasted cauliflower, eggplant stew, carrot soup, and vegetarian curries and biryani.

If you’ve done a staycation at Pan Pacific Hotel over the past 2 years and became a member of the Pan Pacific Privileges, you get to enjoy 10% or 15% off your bill. Families dining with seniors will be happy to know that the restaurant is child-friendly, wheelchair accessible, and offers free parking.

Prices: $98++ to $88++ for adults, $49++ to $44++ for children

Peppermint Buffet – $65 to $88++ (formerly AquaMarine)

If you’re big on good customer service, opt for the Peppermint Buffet at Parkroyal Marina Bay. You might remember it as AquaMarine pre-Covid, but the buffet restaurant went through an overhaul over the past 2 years and is now a modern looking restaurant with pretty Instagram-worthy capsule seats.

The new Peppermint buffet menu changes by season. Currently, the buffet is a Roast and Grill themed menu (running from 5 May to 30 June 2022) with all the international buffet usuals such as seafoods, sashimi, bread, roast meats and seafoods, local dishes, and desserts. For the vegetarians, the plant-based mains are pretty limited with options such as roasted cauliflower, plant-based meatball Vindaloo, and vegetable Kolma.

Also, to our Muslim friends, Peppermint buffet is halal certified, with a Ramadan buffet ($98 per adult, $49 per child) that went on from 2 April to 4 May 2022 most recently.

Prices: $65++ to $88++ for adults, $32.50++ to $44++ for children

The Line Buffet – $88 to $98++

The holy grail of all international buffets in Singapore is The Line at Shangri-La Hotel. Pre-Covid, you’d have to book your spot a month or so in advance to secure yourself a slot.

Then, you could brag about it to your colleagues while you wait for the entire month: “I’m going to The Line soon leh, what should I wear? What should I eat?” Lol, you’re going to an international buffet, eat everything lah.

Good news for these buffet show-offers, The Line’s buffet menu still features the Snow Crab, and salmon and tuna sashimi that they intend to spam eat. However, oysters and lobsters are only available on the Sunday Brunch menu.

The Line buffet is not halal.

Prices: $98++ to $88++ for adults, $49++ to $44++ for children

Landmark 1-for-1 Buffet – $99.99 nett

Need a hotel setting and an international buffet menu to impress your date… but on a budget? The 1-for-1 Landmark Buffet at Village Hotel Bugis at $99.99 nett for 2 pax weekend dinner is your best bet.

Wait, what is Village Hotel Bugis even? It’s the grey-ish looking building with escalators leading up to a dingy shopping arcade full of vintage tailor and Chinese cheongsam shops that you always pass by en route to Haji Lane.

Yup, your date won’t be the most impressed with the walk there… so maybe you’d want to take a Grab directly into the hotel’s drop off point.

Landmark buffet offers 3 menus, namely Menu A, B, and C. Menu C is the most extensive, with local dishes, Indian dishes, and international seafood dishes included.  All menus at Landmark buffet are halal-certified.

Prices: $99.99 for adults (1-for-1), $17.66 for children ages 3 to 7

Out of the above list of 10 most popular buffets in Singapore, only 5 of them are halal-certified. The most popular halal buffets in Singapore are namely:

  • Carousel Buffet (Royal Plaza on Scotts)
  • Peppermint Buffet (Parkroyal Marina Bay)
  • Landmark Buffet (Village Hotel Bugis)

Disclaimer: We referred to published prices to compile this list, stating all the caveats (e.g. valid only on certain days, timings, etc) we could find.

However, we are only human. Please give the hotel/restaurant a call to confirm the prices and validity before heading down — just in case we missed anything, or if any terms and conditions have been amended since the time of writing.

In addition, some hotels may not have reinstated their buffets post-pandemic. So always call them ahead of time to avoid a wasted trip.

Is your favourite 1-for-1 buffet restaurant fully booked? Try The Entertainer, Eatigo, Chope & Fave

Aside from the promotional validity dates, many of these promotions are limited to a certain number of diners per day or promotional period. If for whatever reason you’re not able to get a seat, don’t panic — there are other dining apps to help you save on that buffet feast.

The Entertainer

The Entertainer is a paid subscription that focuses on 1-for-1 deals. As an added bonus, the partner merchants aren’t restricted to restaurants and cafes, so you can expect beauty, fashion and fitness deals as well. The subscription fee for Entertainer Singapore 2022 is on sale at $79 (U.P. $95). It’s still kind of steep, but it also includes Cheers, its sister app for bars and pubs.

Eatigo

Eatigo is an online restaurant reservation service that offers discounts based on what time you dine. Check out the full list of hotel buffet deals at their website.

Chope

Like Eatigo, Chope reservation service also offers exclusive discounts for their users. Check out the full selection of restaurants and partners for buffets and be spoilt for choice.

Fave

Fave may not have a dedicated 1-for-1 buffet section, but some restaurants offer up to 60% and up, which is an even better deal. Check out the current buffet promotions here.
