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.

We have a great time with our friends from Canada. The food is good but not many varieties and should include coffee or tea ( at least for the first round). Your Waiter Ned is so friendly and his service was good. Will visit again.

Terrible food spread for a $14 buffet. Your advertising is very misleading. There were only 6-7 dishes for selection and service is very slow for the manual stations like rojak and popiah. I would suggest you suspend your buffet to keep some good will.

I came here for the Nasi Lemak buffet with my colleagues. Overall it was alright, 6.5/10. We felt that they could use more variety, use less frozen foods, and cut down on the lemongrass in the sayur lodeh. The keropok also has an odd and fishy oil taste. But the Nasi is really good though!
