Carousel@Royal Plaza at Scotts Lunch Buffet

A lot of online food reviews rated Carousel@Royal Plaza at Scotts at the top hotel buffet in Singapore, so I made a reservation 3 weeks ago, for lunch.

The restaurant is conveniently located on the ground floor of the hotel, on the left side of you when you enter the hotel.  The hotel lobby is nicely decorated, giving you some kind of Italian renaissance feel.

We arrived at 11.55am, 5 minutes before the restaurant opens, so I just took a peek of the food that we would have.  There was a small queue at the entrance too, although they all had made a reservation.  Waiters will bring the guests in personally to their tables.  If it is your first time, they would also give you a briefing about all the food available and their locations.

First of all, let's walk around and take a look what are available first.

Seafood section is colorful and definitely appetizing.  There are quite a lot of choices, as you can see, but then unfortunately for oyster lovers, there is no oyster.  Oyster I heard is only for dinner.  The quality of the seafood is quite ok, although not of the top quality type.

Japanese section has different types of sashimi and sushi for you to choose.  Their salmon sashimi is not bad, tuna sashimi is ok, but then tuna is never my personal preference in the first place.

You have the salad section, which provides lots of greens and some pickles as well as meat.

They also have the hot food sections for western, Chinese, and Indian food.

Last but not least, the dessert section.  Ice water is free of charge, and the service staff will promptly re-fill it for you once you drain your glass.  Coffee is self service.  Their coffee must be really good, as my friend drank 3 cups of coffee, and 1 cup of expressio.

Take a look at some of my loot.  I quite like their dessert, not disgustingly sweet, but just lovely sweet.

For the very first time in my life, I tried the chocolate fondue?  Well, probably that explains why I never find it attractive :)

At 2.10pm, we left the restaurant with satisfaction.  For patrons paying with UOB, Citibank or Amex credit cards, you can get a 10% discount.  At the price of S$55/pax, it only amounts to less than S$60/pax after GST and service charge, after the 10% discount.
