Visited for our second night in Singapore and we were very impressed with the quality of the food and the service at this hotel/restaurant. We went for the curry buffet which did not disappoint. From the amazing tasty starters to the selection of main courses (veg, meat and fish) along with the chef special dishes bought to your table by... More

We booked for the English High Tea in the Tiffin Room and were not disappointed. The food on offer was fresh, delicious and plentiful. We loved the ambience created by the harp player. We had made a mistake and had a light lunch before attending afternoon tea - mistake! There were so many tasty treats on offer, there was no... More

Visiting from Australia. Decided to have a "high tea" purely to say that we had been there and thought that we couldn't go wrong on such an occasion. Patrons squeezed into a restaurant situation. Grossly overpriced, food less than average, service not good. In all, an absolute disappointment..

Buffet spread was good. Even had a complimentary birthday cake (small) to celebrate a guest's birthday and the staff sang for us.

We were lucky enough to stay in Raffles hotel overnight and had dinner in the Tiffin Room that night. The evening meal is buffet style Indian cuisine and was very enjoyable. There were many dishes to choose from and there were descriptions of the various dishes, so you knew what they were before helping yourself, which was very good if... More

What a lovely step back in time to have high tea in this beautiful building place. The food was fresh and well presented and ample in portions. There is a lovely eastern style high tea also so no chance you will leave wanting more. A must do if you are in Singapore. Good idea to book which you can do... More

Description
Dining at Tiffin Room is an essential experience at Raffles Singapore. At lunch and dinner, the curry buffet is a hot favourite both with tourists and locals alike. Expect authentic North Indian specialities, including vegetarian curries for non-meat diners. In the afternoon, the restaurant partakes in a classic English tradition and serves High Tea. Delicate morsels are arranged on a tiered tea cosy, while what does not fit is displayed as a buffet. Breakfast too is served at Tiffin Room, featuring a delectable international spread. Tiffin translates into "a light mid-day meal". Enjoying it with curry on Sunday was an essential aspect of colonial life in the early 20th century, with Raffles Singapore serving it since 1899. To recognise this tradition, the main dining room was officially named Tiffin Room in 1976.
