About Ellenborough Market Cafe

Think Peranakan cuisine, but bigger, bolder, and better. Step into a sanctuary where kings and queens feast. The space features pristine dining halls comprising three dining zones in a heritage-meets-contemporary style. The main dining hall is dressed in vibrant turquoise and accented with a sparkling diamond-cut glass wall feature, the lilac mezzanine is drenched in light through the restored stained-glass skylight, while in the classy dining room, the show kitchen's buffet lines take centre stage.

The restaurant offers a diverse buffet repertoire boasting a tantalising medley of Asian and international delights, with a spotlight on authentic Peranakan cuisine. Think evergreen favourites like Ayam Buah Keluak and Babi Pongteh, but with a splash of excitement through the restaurant's modern take on these classics. While you feast on these mouthwatering delights, remember to save some space for daily specials such as the Roast Beef and Leg of Lamb served up at the Carving Station. Other must-trys include the decadent Pork Belly La Mian, the rich and creamy Durian Pengat and the Traditional Muah Chee that's prepared a la minute. Now, here's a buffet you wouldn't want to miss!

Love the dessert corner. Above expectation compared with other hotels buffet. Seafood were fresh and well replenished. Peranakan meat dishes all tasty and tender. Love the sambal lady fingers too.

Your food standards have dropped to new lows. 1. Lamb chop was extremely tough and had a really strong odour. There was no mint sauce as a side to at least temper the smell. 2. Fish served was really dry. 3. Durian pancakes consisted of a huge mountain of preprepared pancakes and asking guests to spread durian over it themselves. You may as well provide a toaster and peanut butter sauce. 4. Peanut puree was utterly disgusting. Tasted and looked like peanut coloured water. 5. Babi pongteh was tough n flavourless. I think you could have just made stir fried pork and it could taste better. We came for my dad's birthday celebrations as he had a good dining experience previously. Congratulations on ruining that memory. Your buffet is not worth $50/pax

the outdoor dining was an unpleasant experience. There was a sewer smell which affect our dining experience. We are so disappointed with the ambience and atmosphere. Only upon request, then we are able to sit at table with a fan. Service needs to be improved.

The atmosphere and waiter was friendly and helpful. Only disappointment came from the chilli crab dish, the crabs were not fresh. A great disappointment! I brought 10 friends there, and 8 of them first visit. The durians paste this time too sweet. The rest of dishes were fine.

Ellenborough market Cafe is used to be my favorite buffet choice. I had been enjoying the freshness of the chilli crab and sweetness of durian paste. Too bad all these become the history. The chilli crab I tasted yesterday is terrible. The taste of the crab meat was plain, quite sure that the crab was stored in fridge for long time. Furthermore, the signature dish of your Cafe is also degraded. The durian paste is so sweet, can 100 percent sure that a lot of sugar was added. I was very embarrassing as I was the one to recommend my 6 colleagues to join me for my birthday celebration. Even with the 50 percent discount, I still don not think that it worth the price I paid.

Food selection for lunch was limited and I need to keep reminding the chef to replenish the dish when it runs out. Worst still, no action taken to explain food run out. Also, service staff was very slow in clearing the table.

Food variety and taste are average. Desserts spread is better than food, but also taste average. Unlikely to visit agn. Waitress is very attentive. 👍
