Food taste suits my taste buds, truly value for money as the spread is just right. The staff were extremely attentive and courteous and helpful. Thank you for a great experience as was my first time there.

Even though there was a significant price increase, the food variety was excellent with log cakes and turkey (signature festive food). However, what made the session so impressionable and outstanding compared to other buffets or restaurants was the service. Particularly, there was a staff named Timothy who was very pleasant and delightful, warm and hospitable, making the effort and initiative to engage with guests. I feel that such an impeccable standard of service is what makes me look forward to my next visit, and indeed so, I have already made my next reservations. Till then.

Turkey breast dish in the Xmas set menu was very well prepared as it was roasted just right with enough moisture retained for an enjoyable meal. The service crews are great too - attentive and polite.

This feedback is based on this single visit alone. The standards has dropped seen via the variety of food available. Examples include: there used to be live stations, more desserts (2) and soup (which is something to drink). All of these are gone for the nasi lemak buffet, so I was quite disappointed. Hopefully the variety would go back for Nov and Dec (I have tried the Thai theme buffet), so I roughly hope it will be similar at least.

I especially loved the chicken wings, but the Ikan Bilis was a disappointment as it was more hard than crispy (over-cooked).

Value for money buffet lunch. The chicken wings are super great and delicious. For the price paid, it is really value for money buffet, which is getting difficult to find in singapore. Plus, the service shown by the ground staff is great and friendly. Keep up the food work!

It's probably cos it's a weekday, the selection was limited and food was not kept very warm... it showed that there was poh piah in the ads.. but there wasn't.. again, probably cos it's a weekday. The glutinous rice was nice, hokkien prawn noodle was too wet and bland, wanton noodle totally bad (wrong noodle to use and wanton not nice), mapo tofu was alright, sweet sour fish was nice, chicken wings dry, rojak lacked kangkong, you char kway, tao pok.. the rest ok ok.. dessert was ok.

I paid the $3 for the drinks, but I heard that I am only able to choose either Coffee and Tea, OR Ice Lemon Tea. I was confused by it before I went for this option, as I thought I could have all three.

Not much variety of food for children. Most of food are spicy, not suitable for children. Children charged at $12++. Should have do menu for them too. Still have a lot of things that can be improved. Keep it up 👍

Limited selection of food ($12++ per pax) but service is beyond expectation.Why am I giving this restaurant a 5 star? Well it’s because of a staff by the name of Vicky. When we gave her our feedback on why there is no veggies included in the buffet she instantly got the Chef to specially prepare a plate of vegetables for us which I felt she don’t have to. This is what I call going an extra mile. I feel that the management should consider Vicky for a promotion on a job well done. Good job Vicky!

I was attracted to Ibis Bencoolen when it had the Nasi Lemak promotion and so I eagerly looked forward to another promotion this time. I brought along some friends and we are All Disappointed with the limited range and worse the small quantity available. People have to rush and grab the satays as it appeared at slow interval. At a higher cost of $12 plus $3 for coffee - made it Poor Value for Money (at least compared with the Nasi Lemak promotion). I have now cancelled plans to bring more friends

The staff were very attentive and work hard. The food lacks flavour and were served cold. The variety left alot to be desired compared to what is being advertised. Other customers also complained that they felt short changed

Please add in a few drinks for the weekday lunch buffet. There were dispensers for soyabean and milo based on the machine if tea and coffee is an issue. I would like to come again in the future and these would be very helpful.

The fish had a fishy taste, pad thai too dry and bobo chacha too diluted. And we always have to wait for the unattentive staff for refilling our cups. Service wise, some of your staff are not friendly and responded rudely. The place was quite stuffy that we thought that the aircon was down. Though i know the hotel lunch buffet is priced at only $12++, i really did not expect the food to taste lousy that I did not bother to go for second serving.. Total disappointment.

1. Drinks such as coffee & tea should be provided. 2. Spread limited. Should have more such as kueh, cakes, dessert like ice cream. 3. Aircon not cold enough. Was sweating. 4. Need Accor Plus membership to entitle discount. Should allow Accor Le membership for discount as well.

It will be good if there is an option to top-up for free flow coffee or tea.
