In this economy, everyone is stretching their dollar — including our fellow foodies. However, there are occasions when we just want to spend large, savour culinary delights, and forget our troubles. Singapore has an amazing number of restaurants and bars where you can simply embark on an unforgettable food trip, but how about a one-stop place with all the food you crave?

A buffet restaurant is not a new concept to most Singaporeans, and there is a wide range of options out there at relatively affordable prices. We’ve listed the lunch buffet places you must try in Singapore.

For an all-encompassing feast

1. The Colony (Ritz-Carlton Singapore)

Like most buffet trips, it’s advisable to start big. Here, we have The Colony, a royal and ornate-looking restaurant with a lunch buffet fit for a king.

True to its name, the Colony pays tribute to the design aesthetics of our British colonial past. 

They offer both local and international cuisines, as well as both lunch and dinner buffets, achieving this with seven different kitchens. You can rest easy that the selection in front of you has been meticulously crafted by skilled chefs, ensuring top-notch quality.

For example, its grill & rotisserie station offers Seared Salmon with Pickled Radish and Spatchcock Peri-Peri Chicken – two simple enough dishes, but also both easy to get wrong when not cooked properly. However, their exceptional quality, as attested by numerous online reviews, sets them apart.

You can also find Hong Kong roast meats, tandoori fish, patisserie-styled desserts, rich butter chicken, and, of course, local dishes like laksa. Furthermore, The Colony offers an enticing seafood experience at The Ice Bar for seafood lovers, featuring a bountiful selection of seafood on ice, including Snow Crab, Half-shell Scallop, White Clam, Flower Clam, Poached Prawn, Black Mussel, Sea Whelk, and Marinated Sea Squid.

And don't miss out on their exclusive lunch buffet promotion, offering a wide selection of delectable dishes at unbeatable prices. Indulge in a delectable Festive Lunch experience from now to 29 December 2023, featuring unlimited servings from our conservatory kitchens: The Ice Bar, The Grill & Rotisserie, The Steam Basket, The Wok, The Tandoor, The Fruit Stall, and The Patisserie.

More importantly, it’s a glorious halal-certified buffet line for all-things Singapore. Its DIY stations allow you to put together your own plates of rojak, along with bowls of mee rebus and laksa. 

There’s also a live roti prata station, where you can choose fillings between curry mayonnaise and nacho cheese sauce. Who says staying traditional can’t allow for some fun little liberties?
