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!

Staff was very friendly and attentive. Food was delicious which made us greedy and ordered too much. Welcome drink is a thirst quencher! Had wine this time so the next visit will plan to try some cocktails :)

It's my first time experiencing ala carte buffet. The service staff was attentive to us but it's pretty hard to advise how much portion we are getting too but still they are at the top notch service. I will definitely return again.

I am not sure why my reservation was accepted when the restaurant was not even opened. ** the above ratings should not be applicable as we were not even at the restaurant for our reservation.**

The food range was adequate especially the dessert table. The Peranakan was a little disappointed and would like to highlight that the piety cups were rancid. Please take note. Service was pleasant.

No buffet this period likely because of COVID-19... Was expecting the local selection to be the star... But the western dishes were more impressive. Durian Pengat dessert surely a must. Secretly disappointed that no gestures were made when the booking specified "for birthday celebration"... Just giving a simple candle on maybe the lava cake would have added alot to the experience.

The spread of food is really good. As it is a local food theme, I would expect some local beverages such as teh tarik, masala tea etc, might consider including in the future. The pricing is Abit on the high side, can consider to adjust so that more can enjoy this wonderful local cuisine. Thank you.

Despite making a mistake regarding my birthday cake in an earlier visit, manager was very prompt n efficient in providing remedy, and was very helpful in making the arrangement for our next visit. My parents and us enjoyed our reunion lunch very much. Thank you.

Great quality, great service and good selection of local and international food items. Just a bit on the pricey side for what was served

Nyonya Session and dessert sessions are good and not bad at all. Sushi session may be a bit lacking of attraction.

The beef is too hard due to overcooking. Not many choices of meat at Local Dishes session. Suggestion: may have options on noodles and pastas.

1. I was overbilled by extra 1 person. Supposed to be 22 pax but billing was 23 pax. (I don't blame your staff, should blame my careless by not checking and trusted your staff). 2. No other option of beverages provided.
