@toons

I saw that you managed to get vouchers to clove at 48 nett for a Sat dinner buffet. Can you share where to get it from pls?

Many thanks in advance!
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

I am looking for a Saturday night buffet with seafood options (best to have both lobster and crab, oyster is not a must)

So far after went through Chope and Eatigo promotions, these are the few that are within my budget:

1) Clove
2) Cafe 2000
3) Marriott Cafe
4) Seasonal Taste

Any advise on which is better? And also any additional recommendations?

Do not go to cafe 2000, terrible food, bbq station serves all burnt food. Please go for others.

Came back from Edge.

Large variety of food, all pretty ok. The roast lamb was super tender and juicy.

Bad part is, there's a large crowd so food was depleted fast and they didn't replenish the same item, instead you got a different item. The salt crusted baked fish(forgot what fish) was gone in 2-3mins, then they brought out baked salmon but didn't change the food card so it still said salt crusted baked fish.

Same goes for the roast lamb on bone, but they brought out the normal roast lamb and it was still super tender and juicy.

Didn't try indian food, looked a bit too spicy for me. Deserts was great.

Crab was bad, rubbery texture. I didn't try the cooked ones but my mom and sis didn't like them either.

The live roast theatre(Edge calls their stations "theatres"), was bad. I asked for pork and lamb, they served it to my table and wooooo it was bad. Pork was tough, lamb was undercooked? The tendon or cartilage, whatever it is, I had so much trouble cutting it the server brought me a steak knife and even then, the meat was soft but extremely resilient and chewy if that made sense.

To their credit, that station was overwhelmed with orders so maybe they had to rush everything out but it was bad...

I really liked the seafood goulash, the lamb, the deserts, satay. Overall it wasn't bad, ambience was nice because we sat by the window and it started raining heavily with thunder, so it was cool.

Gonna start booking for Colony, maybe Christmas period.

Peony Jade, Tungluk or Peach Garden @ Miramar? For me, the std all abt the same, but peach garden has unlimited fried soon hock and is slightly cheaper.

Yea, their bbq have to order at the start or end when there are less orders. Else the bbq tends to be burnt

1 good thing abt cafe 2k is their chef will re grill the carving before serving it to you. So their carving is served hot, unlike most other places. You can also request for it to be more well done. Actually other places also can ask the chef to grill or cook the carving/seafood. Normally they will accomodate your request, just tat cafe 2k auto offer

Seasonal Taste (lobster + crab, no oysters)
Marriott (lobster + crab on Fri n Sat dinner. No oysters)
Clove (lobster, crab + oyster on Fri n Sat dinner)
Cafe 2k (veri long never go liao, i think they have crab n oysters on fri/sat dinner)
