Visited Melt at Mandarin Oriental Hotel for a dinner buffet with 2 girlfriends back in mid 2010. Wide variety, tasty, and the dessert section is to die for. Cost about $80 per pax after a credit card promotion discount.
If you are keen in a less expensive(but still good) buffet click, you may wish to consider Ritz Carlton’s Greenhouse. Check out for my blog post on the Ritz Carlton’s Greenhouse buffet food and the full MENUS and price list for Ritz Carlton Greenhouse Buffets
The buffet is divided into different sections:
Western Desserts, Asian desserts, Fruits
Noodles, Pasta and craved meats
Japanese, salads and cheeses
Strawberry rhubarb crumble, Rose petal pound cake, Exotique square, Mocca gateaux, Deluxe, Forrest berry cheese cake
Mango Pudding, Panna Cotta with forest berry compote, Assorted nonya kueh
The “noodle of the day” was prawn noodle.
One can choose cream sauce or tomato sauce pasta, but i requested for Aglio oilo, and the chef was able to make it. Thumb up for good service!

Went to Melt on another occasion, this time on a weekend. On weekends, Melt has freshly prepared bbq foods by several chefs. The bbq pit is located outdoors
