Two of my favourite flavours - yam and coconut.

Look at the variety on the plate, and know that everything was bad. That takes effort. Really shoddy work.

The cheese was good enough to lift the basic fried rice, but I must say this was an uncommon method of preparing Brussels sprouts.

La la beehoon, Thai curry chicken, fish, beef. Okay: chicken and beef. Bad: the beehoon was messed up for something so basic, while the fish promised wedding-style steamed fish yet was so tough.

Turkey, har gow, teriyaki chicken salad, keropok. Everything was decent, although honestly the bar was low. The turkey was like chicken, which I guess was a good thing.

Spicier than the norm, but one of the rare highlights of this buffet.

Select your ingredients and they'd grill them for you. The lamb, though tender and flavourful, was poorly grilled. The carrot and asparagus were carrot and asparagus.

Always exciting to see this at buffets. Too expensive to buy ala carte outside. They give relatively big prawns too.

I skipped the beef. Mediocre. Like school canteen horfun.

No treatment. Just lobsters cut open for you on the spot. Shiok. All got roe too. Overall Straits Cafe's buffet sucked, but this was a treat.

Two underrated dishes at the appetiser bar. The noodles weren't really udon and more like Hokkien mee or linguine. It was tasty. Meat was quite Chinese and I guess that's a good thing haha.

From the appetiser bar. Eggplant was fantastically umami and how it should be treated. Sweet potato was kinda over-fried but the sweetness helped a lot. Potatoes weren't really seasoned so take them only if you love natural potatoes.

Tried more food than this account shows. Not known for naggy, deep reviews. Just the truth.
