My dinner at Window on the Park, Holiday Inn Orchard. This is 1 of those perpetual 1:1! As such, the spread is tailored to the discounted price rather than the original price. Same practise like 333, melting pot, tiffany cafe etc. In other words, you wouldn't want to pay full price, so go only if you have even numbers to take advantage of the promo.

I know tat they serve sashimi, but i din know tat they have swordfish too! I'm estatic! Luckily the swordsfish is of acceptable freshness. Freshness of the salmon varied though. So i will just take if i spot nice servings, esp right after they replenished. Yum yum, the swordsfish is making me very happy




They serve mostly common hot dishes. From top, its stirred fried black pepper beef (so so cos the beef rather bland n got no beefy taste), sweet sour crispy prawns (not bad, nice balance of sweetness n sourness, prawn fresh), fish in black bean paste (okay, cheap dory fish used, so not much taste, but at least not fishy), teriyaki chicken (not bad), and pan fried salmon in the middle (varies, some pieces tad dry).



They also have salads, chilli crabs, soups, mee siam, oyster omelette (without oysters ) carbo etc.


My fav dessert, durian pengat!



Hmmm, ice cream cone made ala minute. Now this gave me an idea.

A plus B ... = Durian pengat, ice cream style!



Yum yum, heavenly.



Yet another serving. Had a total of 3 cones of durian pengat.



Plus 1 scoop paired with prawn crackers! Intense sweetness + crispiness + slight savoury + prawn oily taste.



The durian pengat is a tad too sweet, n the flavour can be more intense. Also too smooth without the fruit fibre. However, its still quite good. Definitely in sugar overload mode now Wheeeeeeee .........


All in all, a small spread, but really can't complain given the price. Actually small spread also good cos less likely to overeat. Everything try a bit also will not be tat full. Most of the food are okay taste wise.

Good service. Staff friendly n prompt. Food also replenished fast.


Next cheapo buffet stop, Melting Pot! Also bought a voucher for it Lucky got voucher, cos i dun wanna find a victim just to go with me for the 1:1 promo considering the std of the food.

Try the durian pengat at cafe brizo, park hotel clark quay. Trust me, its a lot better.

Yea, Window on the Park always have 1:1 promo. Not sure which card though as i am using a 50% off voucher.

Imo, its 1 of those restaurants which take their price, double it, and then offer a 1:1 promo as a gimmick. Good thing is last time, the promo only applies for weekdays, but now i believe its also applicable for fri n sat which supposedly have a better seafood spread. Do call to check if keen though.

Sad to say, no salmon belly for me to whack. I reach abt 7pm. All the salmon belly is gone. No lobster also, lobster only available for fri, sat n sun. The variety is huge. But the quality is not there. The quality of the food is comparable to Ishi mura. The only difference is the amount of variety. For a buffet that cost $35.05nett. I am expecting more quality. Forgive me if I am being critical. Maybe it is just me being me, one man's meat is another's man poison? No hw done for this outing as I dun feel I should give free advertisement. Pardon me for those who like kiseki, the comments posted are purely my own opinion. Will post a more detailed review once my allergic drug wear off.

Overall is an enjoyable outing, becos of the great company.

Woots! First must thank carey for the Banana spin! its shiok!

For the buffet, there was many varieties. but as monkey stated, the quality.. not there.
But i still enjoyed the pork belly the most but without sauce.
it was nice and crispy but there was some sticking together. the last few rounds of pork belly standard dropped to the extend it became tough
their teppan beef was also not bad..but as usual, standard dropped for the last round of it.
other than that, everything was just average

but i still enjoyed myself though! so much chatting going on

and thanks donkey for driving me and denny home

Kiseki only worth going during their lunch as dinner doesn't add much varieties and price is high.
