6 In-House Hotel Restaurants With the Freshest Seafood Buffets

6 In-House Hotel Restaurants With the Freshest Seafood Buffets

After a long week of hustling at work, you deserve an all-you-can-eat buffet where you can indulge your tummy in excellent seafood selections. What better way to treat yourself than dining on Japanese sushi, Maine lobster dipped in garlic butter, and Singapore’s incomparable chilli and black pepper crab?

Skip the hawker centre every once in a while and enjoy a succulent lunch or dinner at these mouth-watering seafood spreads in some of Singapore’s best hotels. COVID-19 health regulations have obliged hotels to make some modifications to their buffet services. Many of them may opt to serve your seafood meals and refreshments at your table to keep everyone safe and comfortable.
