10 Best Buffets In Singapore Worth The Splurge

Nothing gets Singaporeans going like a good buffet. From a glorious seafood feast at Tunglok Seafood to extravagant Sunday brunches at Edge, these are our favourite buffet spots for stuffing yourselves silly!

In light of the current situation, you'll no longer be able to grab your own food on your own. Instead, most restaurants have adopted an a la carte buffet where you can order as much as you want and the food is served to your table.

For Impressing The Family
Calling all seafood lovers! Plan your next buffet indulgence to Colony for an ocean-fresh buffet spread (from $64) that would have you staggering home. From king crab legs to half-shell scallops and poached prawns, the extravagant seafood selection just begs that you to dig in. Expect refined dishes that are full on flavour — depending on which buffet you choose, think laksa with a lobster ball, foie gras, herb-crusted roasted pork belly, Peking duck, burrata and lobster rolls. There are several live stations to check out and plenty to eat, and Burppler Jaden Loh says "their desserts are exquisite and tasty too!"
