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.

For those who have a small tummy, there's a wide selection here. So try in small quantity so you won't miss anything tasty. The Indian food and Chinese BBQ selection is really tasty. Don't forget the BBQ grill which is situated outdoor, they offer tasty satay and grill meat.

However staff here can be slow when tw cafe is crowded. Nonetheless, we can't deny the food is tasty.

Having tried out just about every other champagne buffet brunch in this over the years we decided to give this one a go and have done so again and again since. Tremendous selection of food including great seafood, Chinese, Indian dishes and an outside BBQ set up. Unlimited, good quality Veuve champers, wines, beer and some cocktails. At SGD138++ it's cheaper than other, similar hotel Sunday buffets but seriously worth it. It's getting more well known and ever busier so will be interesting to see how long it will be before the prices go up. The surroundings are a bit dark and the garden views unnecessarily obstructed to my mind but you can't beat the food and top-notch service (Wai Meng's a particular star) so definitely worth raiding the piggy bank for.

Wide range of selection and quality of food is the best. The only "cons" is the price is a bit pricy.

I recently ate both breakfast and dinner at Melt while staying at The Mandarin Oriental for business. I am a frequent guest at the hotel so know many of the staff by their first name and they have my favorite dishes waiting for me. With that said, this is one of my favorite breakfast buffets. They have numerous ethic stations (Indian, Japanese, Western, European, Chinese, etc.), as well as made to oder eggs and noodles - so there is plenty of variety. In addition, for the health conscious, there is fresh wheat grass, fruit smoothies and plenty of fresh fruit. On the weekends they have a champagne brunch and even more of a selection of foods.

When I am there for a week, I will usually eat there one evening. The dinner buffet features all the ethnic cuisine, fresh seafood and several carving stations. There are always a lot of vegetarian dishes as well. I believe one of the chefs is Indian, so their Indian fare is some of the best. They recently had a guest chef from Lebanon and this was a nice treat. It's a bit pricey, but their service (especially from one of their supervisors, Ryan) is top notch.
