Had the crab buffet dinner. Variety of crab dishes were not bad. However, the cooked crab shells seemed to be harder than those you eat at the seafood dinner. Other dishese were good as well. Kway pie tee is on of the better ones eaten.

We enjoyed the lunch buffet at Ellenborough Market Cafe, though we were hoping that there would be a wider spread. Perhaps, can add a few more live stations like noodle station, satay station etc?

Foreign Staff were not helpful. Spilled water while refilling. Dropped my knife and asked for clean one- China waitress took her time to replace it. Poor coffee and tea taste. Limited variety of food. Won't come back again.

The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will
take you through the three Quays of the city, each

I can't decide which is my best option to book an executive lounge room or just eat at the Ellenborough cafe. Would like an English type of buffet breakfast. Any suggestions please?
