It’s been about two years since I was last at The Line buffet restaurant, so I picked it as the place to have an early birthday celebration with family last Sunday.
The layout of the food stations looked pretty much the same to me albeit with some minor tweaks in their offering. Like how they have stopped serving oysters some time ago. I didn’t mind it as I have always had a soft spot for crustaceans. Plus I feel they’ve balanced things out at the cold seafood area with amazingly good Alaskan King crab legs and lobster claws.
Overall, I think the buffet is still of a really good standard. Apart from the aforementioned crab and lobster parts, the standouts for me would be the freshly grilled satay, the roasts station (they carve the beef prime rib, roast beef and lamb when you want), the laksa (I recommend peeling a few of those lobster claws to throw in for a more luxurious bowl), the raclette (who doesn’t like hot oozy cheese melted over whatever the heck you choose, right?) and a wide array of cheeses from France, Italy and Spain in the Mediterranean section. Also, the entire Indian food section with irresistible design-your-own-curries and made-to-order pratas.
I have good news for dessert lovers because that whole category is a world in itself at The Line. Besides a table loaded with fresh bakes such as tarts of various kinds and the fine pastries displayed on glass shelves, there are trays of local kuehs, a chocolate fountain, made-to-order crepes, and gelato and ice-cream in assorted flavours to indulge your sweet tooth with.
We chose to avoid alcohol that day so it cost us $118++ each (inclusive of unlimited juices and soft drinks). But if you do like freeflow of champagne and wines to accompany your meal, it would be $178++ per head.
