    Went there for dinner during our stay at MBS. The buffet and last order for the ala carte ends at 1030pm. We didn't go for the buffet since it's already 930pm.

    The reception staff was polite, no fake accent and ask for our room number and my husband's first name and led us to a nicely and clean table. Not sure whether this is true, but we got the same waitress serving our everything during the dinner. My husband's was also addressed by his first name during the dinner. Which means the waitress got to remember which table belongs to which guest. Not sure whether this only apply to guests staying at the hotel though. Polite-ness every where, questions of our well being and how we liked our food. There wasn't a need to request for refill of iced water as our glasses were refilled quite promptly.

    Price, well, quite expected for MBS, $19 - $25 for main courses such as chicken rice, nasi goreng or laksa. $49 for stirloin steak. We ordered a Stirloin Steak, Lime Cheesecake and a coke and it came up to a whopping $79~ Luckily, the food quality is also quite standard... Steak succulent and to the mark when we requested for "medium well", a bit over marinated but still acceptable. Love the sorbet ice cream that came with the cheese cake. But the cake itself was too thick though. Not bad for an anniversary dinner but cannot visit too often, otherwise it will burn a hole in the pocket.

      Not a buffet I would pay to return to

      My first visit to MBS and I was quite excited to try what they are capable of in terms of food. It was a casual business lunch so buffet at Rise sounded like the best option to suit everyone's tastes.

      Rise is located right smack in the middle of the high-ceiling Marina Bay Sands hotel lobby and very open-concept, so much so that you may walk right past it thinking it was the hotel lounge. Seatings are elevated and plenty of lush to also provide a sense of privacy from the lobby traffic. Remember to ask the cab to stop at the hotel lobby if applicable as it can be a fair walk if they drop you off at the Casino lobby instead.

      Staff was eager to please although a bit clueless. We arrived early at 11:45am and asked if the buffet is ready. Staff said oh the buffet starts at 11:30am, to which we asked if it means we can go get the food already. He then said he needed to re-confirm the timing and come back to us. Huh??

      The set up and variety looked promising, but unfortunately, the key word was 'looked'.

      Soup & Bread - 3 varieties: tomato, mushroom, beef. I only tried the mushroom and found it quite good; I could taste actual chunks of mushrooms in it but after a few spoonfuls it started to be a little salty.

      Cheese - A suprisingly better than expected selection of cheese, something I dont see alot at buffet lunches. The few I tried tasted too strong for me but taste is subjective of course.

      Starters - normal items like salad leaves, potato mayo, sausage and potato salad etc.

      Seafood - 4 varities: prawns, crabs, scallops, mussels (which I didnt try). The small-medium prawns were not chilled enough although it was buried under ice, and came without the heads. It did not have that sweet crunch of really fresh prawns either and was really just okay. The crabs had the same problem. I was quite disappointed as I had expected more out of MBS quality. The only plus point is when a staff saw me struggling with the crab claw, he offered to take it away to crack it for me.

      Sashimi - I only tried the salmon but it too was served not chilled enough. I wonder if its the ice they are using????

      Hot food - Nothing wow thus I didnt try alot. It was more common fare like dim sum, noodles cooked to order, pasta, sweet sour chicken, mushrooms, kailan etc.

      Desserts - A big selection and I tried a few but was not wowed. Fruit tarts, chocolate cakes and mousses, bread butter pudding, biscotti, madelines, and mango pomelo dessert. Plenty of fruits though.

      Coffee and tea is included in the buffet and you can take your pick of earl grey, english breakfast etc. We asked if only normal coffee is included or can we have cuppucino lattes etc; and they needed to check again. Turned out to be only normal coffee, FYI.

      Ambience is nice and airy with a very alfresco feel, and although it is situated in the hotel lobby, it wasn't too noisy. You can spot business guys in suits or families on a weekday leisure post-casino meal.

      I had expected better from MBS actually. I do agree that variety is good but sometimes I prefer quality more than quantity. And none of the items stood out. The host paid for all of us which was good, as this is one buffet I will not pay to return to. For the same price, there are definitely better buffet options out there.
