Yesterday my colleague brought me to this restaurant in West coast Plaza, we ordered the Family set for 4-6 persons though there are only 3 of us. For $68.90+ (no service charge), we had Curry fish head, Golden claypot chicken, oats meal squid, hot plate tofu and samba kangkong, come with 6 drinks and 6 bowls of rice.

Will try to get the pictures from my colleague.

We 3 ate 6 persons share is a bit too much cause too full, I think 4 people will be just nice. The food came fast and are very nice too.

I know - I also brought my CO there for their dinner buffet and was damn disappointed as well...so it's not once-off but a real drop in standard

An aside, Spices cafe (Pernankan buffet) at Concorde Hotel (The previous Le Meridien) is not too bad...I love their pork satay

no picture was taken. at nett price $24.50, can't expect too much.

their meat section is quite limited..

chicken heart, chicken liver, chicken thigh, lamb, beef, they have roast pineapple and garlic bread.

Yesterday was my 2nd time. this time round no fish..

they have some cooked dishes, nothing fantastic. cheapo ice cream. The mushroom soup is inferior compared to campbell soup although toons find it better.

There is no ice water served. if u need to drink buy 1.5litre of mineral water and drink discretly.

Ooops, want pics also cannot. Everything into tummy and out by now, heehee.

The spread shrank slightly. Pasta was now not ala minute, but at the buffet spread and only tomato based sauce. Still okay though.

The cooked dishes and salad also slightly smaller. Less 2-3 dishes if i am not mistaken, eg, no more heart of palms.

For the meats, the beef comes in 2 cuts, rump and top side. I liked both, though the top side can be a tad raw. Chix also come as thighs (very gd!), spicy and normal chix wings. Got black pepper beef too. No fish though, dunno if dun have that nite or permanently removed.

I found the meats better than the previous time i was there. Not as salty, though some of the pieces, esp those on the outside, can still be a tad salty.

Overall, decent meal, esp considering the price. Satisfied my meat cravings! Really dun mind going back again a few months later if got similar promo, though might prefer to try the 6th avenue one. Gone for cheapo one now, must go try the exp and more premium one

the meat they cut with abit of fats, tender and "juicy" are the best.

Thanks for the review Toons...hahah

Usually should have sausages etc

Guess for that price, we can't complain too much

Previously, Vibes also served Churrascaria with an international buffet but I think they closed down or something...

Oh, Traders' buffet also has churrascaria but very limited selection and the rest of the cooked food quite normal...

PS - I love fatty meat - the more the merrier
