Award winning Carousel restaurant, where food is prepared in halal certified kitchens, has long been a favourite with Singaporeans and visitors. Situated off the lobby at level one of Royal Plaza on Scotts, it is spacious and welcoming.

The buffet restaurant’s concept has been redesigned, still providing culinary delights to satisfy diners with Singapore, Japanese, Mediterranean and Western cuisine, amongst other international tastebud tinglers. Seafood has always been a mainstay, as well as delectable desserts. Tea and coffee are included in the buffet prices, currently ranging from $42++ to $88++.

Indulge in popular Singapore chilli crab and chicken rice, succulent Maine lobster, Australian and New Zealand mussels, a range of colourful salads, tender roast lamb, fragrant fried rice, traditional Malay gado gado with its more-ish spicy peanut gravy, baked chicken, noodle dishes, appealing teppanyaki choices, tandoori chicken, Thai curry, pasta and a colourful mélange of other palate pleasers. Leave space for desserts such as burnt cheesecake, chocolate cake, berry tarts, comforting bread and butter pudding, as well as ice cream, tropical fruit and a cheese selection.

Such is Carousel’s allure, be sure to make a reservation.

Verdict: Whether lunch, afternoon tea or dinner, a fine spread awaits at the conveniently central location just off Orchard Road.
