colony and carousel booked, cant get seats for 3 at 630pm

gonna try this Jen buffet instead. But there seems to be 2, Makan@Jen (orchard gateway) and J65 at Tanglin.

Which one is the recommended buffet?

ok gonna abandon Beach Road Kitchen, going Colony instead for sunday dinner.

Any good promos going on? I can only find 10% off for OCBC cards at getcardable.com, nothing really shows up anywhere else.

edit: forget it, forgot its a public holiday, no promos are valid haha

The good stuff like grilled lobsters are only available on fri n sat dinner wor. Personally, i will either go for the fri/sat seafood buffet w the 'works' or not at all

For the more 'quality' buffets like colony n carousel, you can get at most 10 to 15% discount nia.

Yea, this coming sat, sun n mon very sian for buffets lovers. Most places no promos due to PH.

I have tried the Sunday brunch @ J65 Jen Tanglin.
It is reasonably good food at $58++

Well, jen is not in the same league as colony n carousel, but then again, the price will tell you tat

I prefer Makan@Jen > J65. The spread is smaller, but i find the food tastier. J65 has different themes on different nights though. More interesting in tat aspect? Btw, i am referring to dinner. I think i saw the menu for lunch @ J65 before n its pretty bad.

J65 Sunday brunch menu :-

J65 Lunch menu *yucks* :-

Edge also not in same league as Colony n Carousel though > then both Jens.

1 thing good abt Edge is the large variety of food. Really a lot of choices. Too bad you going on Sun. If you like spicy food, their current sichun theme (end on Sat) is not bad. When i went last Fri, they had spicy bullfrog, la zi chix, cold liang fen n those chinna mala grilled fish. King crab legs some good, some lousy. Do remember to try the rum choc!

No choice, Colony and Carousel both fully booked, i think Carousel only has 8:30pm slots, gonna pass on that.

Sounds like not going on Sat is good cause i am pretty bad at handling spicy food.

In your opinion, what other buffets are in the same league as Colony and Carousel? I still have ample time to cancel booking.

Melt? It's pretty good and if you go for weekend dinner, they have the outdoor BBQ option

For me, Colony (Fri/Sat w grilled lobsters) n Carousel are overall the best buffets in SG. If $ not an issue, i will always recommend them. Of coz i only tried a bit of buffets nia. Those $100+ to $300ish sunday brunches n etc i can't comment liao coz i never try.

If there are certain specific requirements, eg, buffet w good wagyu, then maybe can consider 333's wed wagyu nites. If ambience, i like Clifford Pier but they currently serving only high tea buffet which i dun quite like.

Been there before, the outdoor BBQ is sort of hidden. Only some paper signs and even then, it looked really shady.

Didn't really try anything from that section...

I like Melt, but i could be biased since i went during CNY.

Yea, the bbq stn is at this pavilion thingy outside in the garden area. Plus they dun serve to your table, so a bit troublesome to go out to order n then go out again to collect.

I only find their indian section not bad, the rest of the food forgettable. Nice choc cake though.

Yes, foie gras on mini beef steak. Normally foie gras served w some sweet + sourish sauce w bread, but the foie gras plus beef combo actually works too. Quite nice ... in fact its the highlight of the buffet

They were vouchers sold by Chope. Got them during a sale, so cheaper than the usual price. Let me know if you want a referral link
