The Tiffin Room is a classic restaurant in the Raffles hotel. I ate here for the North Indian Buffet, and it blew my mind! I am not a huge fan of Indian fare, but this completely captured my taste buds. The quality and variety of dishes was out of this world! Not to forget the service was excellent. They were... More

High tea in the Tiffin Room at Raffles hotel is an absolute must-do when visiting Singapore. Its not cheap, but its one of those things ticked off my bucket list. The setting is old colonial and so tasteful and I felt transported back to another time. The food was impeccable. Unfortunately our tea order was forgotten and when it did... More

A mixture of sweet and savoury delicacies, including hot and cold food. A selection of Asian, European and 'fusion' dishes.

A friend recommended we book afternoon tea at Raffles during our stop over in Singapore. I'm very glad we took his advise as this was the highlight of our visit. From the beautiful room and table setting and the harp music played throughout. The food and service were impeccable and the athmosphere as you would imagine in an historic colonial... More

A vast array of fresh, tasty foods to chose from, each more delicious than the last! From the numerous chutneys and salads, through the main dishes, the naan & poppadoms, to the lovely selection of desserts, all were perfectly prepared & presented.

The staff were friendly and efficient, the place is picturesque and the food beautiful. You get the usual three tiered sandwich and dessert service but you can also access a buffet which has a range of food from curry pasties through to scones and even hot pud should you want it. It also has a variety of Asian food. I... More

My partner and I were so excited to be experiencing a high tea at the Raffles Tiffin room but unfortunately we're dispointed upon our arrival. The glitz and glamour which we thought may have come with the historical place wasn't to be. Dressed up we arrived to a disorganized chaos of where to go. No signage where to go and... More

Always a hit with our overseas guests when we bring them here for dinner. Service is impeccable, ambience is classy, food is good. Taking a walk around the compound before dinner was also a nice touch.

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.
