Let's start with the good... The atmosphere was nearly perfect and the service staff were very prompt, polite and helpful. Unfortunately, those were the only things worthy of praise. The food selection was rather small, oysters had hardly any meat, roast lamb was a bit too dry and curiously, there was no roast beef. The other dishes weren't bad, especially the dessert, but their dinner buffet is definitely not worth the usual price and is a place I definitely wouldn't recommend unless you are an AccorPlus member where the 50% discount for 2 pax makes it worthwhile.

Food too little and not tasty at all even the laksa tase awful. The plates were wet especially the plates for the cakes. Cleaniness is another problem maybe the enviroment contributed to it. Make me feel like I am dining at a 1-2 hotel cafe. So it don't really command such a price.

Very disappointing food variety & quality. I choose the square as there were good reviews online but the range of food variety and quality is very disappointing. There is no sushi. My guests do not take lamb nor oxtail and it was available on the buffet. The highly raved Durian pegat is mediocre. Our group was the largest on that day but I need to tell the server to fill in the water in the empty glasses. I was told there are many Christmas items but only turkey is available (and it is a thanksgiving dish!) My entire group is very disappointed. What a way to celebrate Xmas!

The menu allows us to explore new unique flavors like laksa n chocolate. Love the chili crab pizza, with a strong kick of spiciness and loaded with crab meat. Chili crab sliders on the other had not so impressive due to the crispy breadcrumb totally hide the texture of crab meat, as if there isn't any crab meat inside. Dessert is ok. Red wine is enjoyable. Service was great as me and girlfriend arrived around 9:20pm and they are closing at 10pm. Definitely will visit again to try other food.

(1) food quality fluctuate. We had tied the crabs through the buffet, noted that the quality of food differ between the batches. Suggest QC on the ingredients as some crabs are not fresh (2) durian penyat: suggest to make it smoother and thicker, less sweet. It looked melted rather than creamy. (3) oysters very fresh (4) cheese: should replenish (5) coffee area require better house keeping, monitor milk level.

Frankly, we were disappointed with the service during our lunch. Not really short of staff but it takes long to get our warm water twice. There are no teaspoons at coffee counter nor near ice-cream section too. We need to ask and we cannot find any staff either. Seems a little disorganised although café wasn't crowded too. Lack of service and attention.
