The Line Buffet Restaurant Dinner: A Feast for the Senses
If you are looking for a buffet dinner that will satisfy your cravings for a variety of cuisines and dishes, you should head to The Line at Shangri La Hotel. The Line is one of the most popular and acclaimed buffet restaurants in Singapore, offering a lavish spread of international delicacies from many theatre kitchens. Whether you are a fan of seafood, meat, salads, cheese, desserts, or Asian specialties, you will find something to please your palate at The Line.
We recently visited The Line on a Thursday night, and we were impressed by the spacious and modern dining room, designed by a renowned American interior designer. The restaurant was bustling with diners, creating a lively and festive atmosphere. We were greeted by the friendly staff and ushered to our table, where we were offered a choice of drinks. We opted for water and tea, which were complimentary. There was also an option to order wine or other beverages at an additional charge.
We then proceeded to explore the buffet stations, which were arranged according to different cuisines and themes. There was a cold seafood counter, featuring fresh lobsters, crabs, prawns, scallops, mussels, and oysters on ice. There was also a sushi and sashimi counter, offering a selection of raw fish slices and rolls. I particularly enjoyed the salmon belly sashimi, which was fatty and melt-in-your-mouth.
For hot dishes, there was a Western station, serving roasted meats such as lamb rack, beef rib eye, and turkey breast. There was also a carving station, where you could get slices of ham or roast beef. The meats were tender and juicy, and paired well with the various sauces and condiments available. There was also a pasta station, where you could customize your own pasta dish with your choice of noodles, sauce, and toppings.
For Asian dishes, there was an Indian station, serving tandoori chicken, naan bread, biryani rice, and various curries. The tandoori prawns were incredibly delicious, with a smoky and spicy flavour. A Chinese station also served dim sum, noodles, roast duck, and stir-fried dishes. The dim sum was freshly steamed and tasty, especially the custard buns. There was also a Malay station, serving satay skewers, rendang beef, and nasi lemak.
One of the highlights of The Line buffet dinner was the seafood extravaganza theme on Thursday. This meant that there were more seafood dishes available at the buffet stations, such as lobster, scallops, seafood paella, crab curry, and seafood laksa. I loved the lobster.
For desserts, there was a wide array of cakes, pastries, mousses, puddings, ice creams, and fruits to choose from.
The service at The Line was attentive and efficient. The staff were polite and helpful, clearing our plates promptly and refilling our drinks regularly. They also checked on us occasionally to see if we needed anything else or if we had any feedback.
Overall, we had a wonderful dining experience at The Line buffet dinner. The food quality and variety were excellent; there was something for everyone’s taste buds. The ambience was cozy and lively; it felt like a celebration. We would definitely recommend The Line buffet dinner to anyone who loves food and wants to indulge in a feast for the senses.
