Yes, this is also 1 of the buffets i aiming to try. I will likely try their Mediterranean nites on thu cos more meats. The seafood nite on fri also sounds good. Got lobsters and various types of oysters, but since i dun really go for oysters ...

You mentioned trying the sunday brunch in Jun right? Thats a long long long time away wor, so i never reply.

At the rate i going, likely i will try their normal buffet dinner before Jun, then we can decide further
hahaha ok... i'll wait for ur updates den........

Sigh, a bit sad today. Another good buffet hit the ****s *ahem, pardon the language*.

Agree with Piggy, Mosaic's standard dropped. In my books, from a good buffet, now drop to just a so so one. Its still okay with the 1:1 promo, but there are better options around, eg, 10@claymore. So ironic. 10@claymore was once condemned for the lobster fiasco, but now turned up to be a better option.

Back to Mosaic. Beef was dry and slightly tough. The veg teppenyakki was salty. Desserts forgettable (what happened to their peanut butter cake???). Sashimi not that fresh. Even their durian pengat also taste too sweet and lack that durian fragrance due to their adding of too much condensed milk. Most of the other stuff also tasted worse than before.

Dun think i will go back again. Got better buffets around.
Warned you le. For Rose Veranda, I think you should also give it a miss. Standards dropped so low till I have to dig to find it.

don feel sad.. most buffets just can't be consistent with their standard. its either standard drop, or don have this item or that item if not price raise..

this is singapore...

Taste is so subjective. One man's meat is another man's poison. Reviews are merely someone's opinion. If blindly followed, then would not have gone to 10@claymore at all, and miss out on a good buffet.
in tis aspect, I do not deny tat I'm biased.

As long as not the day itself, then should be okay. So wanna check with him if 10 mar he tentatively okay? Then maybe 2 days b4, he can confirm. If cannot, then we reschedule?

Yea, i read your comments, both time. Thanks for the effort, heehee.

If i'm only going for 2 buffets a month, then of cos i will seriously consider giving it a miss, but since i only try to avoid going on consecutive days, i just tot to give it a try myself.

Imo, I think its still okay considering its like $32 nett. There are better options around, but its not too shabby too.

For RV, think i will heed your warning. Imo it is also another okay buffet, if you wanna go for 'english tea' kinda of food like fancy teas, sandwiches, scrones etc and for the ambience. But i will really pay slightly more for a proper full fledge lunch buffet. Since i not impressed with it to begin with, and the stds drop ... why bother

Besides if go to RV on sat, means that the sun gone liao, and i still wanna clear marriott, santa fe, dining room, brasilico etc as well as revisit 10@claymore.

wat about the others who were interested ley...?? if no more rose... i guess i'll be buffet-free for apr-may liao den... can replan if necessary...

as for myself... as long as still got another 3 pax interested (so 4 in total)... i think i'm ok.... besides the stupid online system can only book max 4 pax in one go...

but gotta decide fast ley... 2nd apr already can't book for 4 liao... 3rd apr just opened for booking... unless can decide NOW... else need to go for the 9th apr liao...
