Singaporeans love eating buffet. Do you? I enjoy eating buffet because of the wide variety of food you can taste in a single meal. I love varieties! My mom and sister first came across Buffet Town through a $50NETT promotion they did previously. Since I didn’t try Buffet Town before, we decided to go for an impromptu buffet dinner at Buffet Town. It’s my first time at Buffet Town so I thought it’s a good opportunity for me to write about the buffet experience in Buffet Town.
Before heading down, I did some research online and there are quite a number of negative reviews like Seafood is not fresh, worms in oysters etc. #LOL Nevertheless, I decided to still go ahead and experience it for myself. Well, people has bad days, so does restaurants.
Buffet Town offers more than 300 buffet items over 29 item categories and with a mini playground for children.
When we reached, there was already a long queue. The queue is separated into two sections. The left queue is for people who made their online reservation, right queue like walk-ins. After waiting for close to 30 minutes, we were invited in. The whole restaurant is quite big and the interior looks better than I expected. It was a Saturday dinner so the place was crowded.
I always start with my favorite seafood station. There are fresh live prawns, oysters, mussels and clams.
This is the Teppanyaki station where you can choose your own meat and vegetable combination
You can order freshly brewed coffee and tea just like in any traditional coffee shop. Kopi, Kopi C, Kopi O, Teh, Teh C, you name it, you got it.
Besides the drink stall, you can also find some Mee Jian Kueh aka peanuts pancakes.
Buffet Town offers Chilli Crabs on everyday dinner and Black Pepper Crabs only from Friday to Sunday, Eve of PH and PH Dinner. My mom tried their Chilli Crabs but don’t really like their Chilli crab sauce. Well for me I find the taste quite ok but it is nothing impressive, though.
My second favorite station when eating buffet is the fresh salmon & sushi station. They served sliced salmon in plates.
I thought this is a Japanese themed buffet spread but you can also find our local delights like Hainanese chicken rice, laksa and brewed lotus & peanuts soup.
There is also a station which serves tempura and fried crackers.
Rojak some more… Not a fan of Rojak so I didn’t try this.
The western station where you can find fried chicken wings, french fries, pizzas, roasted beef etc.
Here is a salad bar for veggie lovers. Definitely not for me.
Okay, time to begin digging in.
A plus point for Buffet Town is that it is quite family friendly. There is a playground section for kids to play games or even watch cartoon together.
If you are looking for the washroom, note that it is located outside the restaurant on the right side.

Buffet Town offers quite an affordable and reasonably priced buffet dinner. I am quite satisfied with the spread of buffet items (fusion of Japanese & local) and the food quality is okay considering the price you are paying for. Also, it is a good option for a family gathering.
