I work around VivoCity and my colleagues all advised against going King Louis even if it's cheap. I never got to try coz everyone avoids it like a plague. Lunch time always see the place empty, didn't look promising to me too.

Maybe they have poor QC and you hit the jackpot that day?

Very long never recommend any buffets, so here goes. Found is absolute gem of a buffet at King Louis, Vivocity.

https://www.thekinglouis.com/

Their ala carte buffet is $39.90++. They have 141 on weekdays n 342 on weekends. The menu is a pretty big one consisting of western dishes. Forgot to take a pic of their menu, but you can goggle it. Got salads, appertisers, main dishes, desserts n drinks.
So you went for the full menu or normal menu ?

Went to Kitchen Table at W Sentosa for their seafood dinner buffet. s88++ per person.




Summary: "Overall, we really liked the abundance of seafood available throughout the whole buffet line, and also some of the novel (to us, anyway) flavours like the tandoori lobster. What we didn't really like was some of the hot dishes being left out on the line for way too long. We also thought that while the food was generally "not bad," there weren't really any standout "oh so delicious" dishes. To us, we think it's a little much to ask a diner to drive (or UberGrab) all the way out to Sentosa Cove, and pay a hundred bucks for this dinner, when there are countless other hotel buffets in Singapore that are better, cheaper, more convenient, or all three."

Have always been thinking to try out Kitchen Table. Not sure if it is covered under AMEX 1-for-1. But if you have staycation in one of the hotels. I think it's a good choice.

Your review really makes me think twice now. hahaha

It’s “OK” but s$88++ ... pricey leh. The other hotel buffets that are much easier to get to than sentosa cove are similar priced and IMO have overall better food.

Disclaimer I don’t own a car lol. A car owner might argue that sentosa cove is actually easier to drive to than orchard road on a saturday night 🤣
