Description: With creativity and imagination we have transformed the dining experience. Chefs in show kitchens present a multi-cultural cooking theatre. At any time of the day select from cuisine ranging giant baskets of fruits bring bursts of colour; the wine bar itself is a vivid backlit pink. The space is transitionary, designed for changing moods from muted to energetic up to the fresh and airy garden views. You could dine here every night of the week and the only similarity in experience would be the excellent quality of the food.

“Huge variety of foods”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

I have been to Melt for both buffet breakfast and buffet dinner
The dinner was quite amazing with heaps of fresh seafood, western and asian dishes and a large array of desserts. The food is of a good standard and the service is excellent
I would recommend this restaraunt for all occasions

“Great buffet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

The buffet was excellent. A lot of variety from a lot of cultures. I have realized I am not as adventurous food-wise as I thought I was and this gave me a lot to try along with many choices that weren't too far out.

“Super food and even better service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2012

We stayed in the Mandarin and tried The Melt for lunch our first day. We were hooked. The services were excellent. The staff took care of anything we wanted in a professional, efficient and personalized manner. Our drinks were refilled without needing to ask. The staff gave recommendations for food and then gave us recommendations for what we should do while in Singapore. Even getting us brochures to give us ideas. The food was fabulous and extremely gratifying.

“Sorry, it did not impress me”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2012

On the day we dined there most of the food was cold or just slightly warm. Nothing special about the choices, which means you can find them anywhere else.
Personally this place is not recommended by me.
