    A long overdue post, this was during the period of time before Christmas and our wonderful boss brought us to Carousel for lunch and gift exchange *** grilling session for some weird questions which will not be repeated here. I've never noticed much on Halal buffets because i've never had to search for one so this time was an eye opening experience for me. First and foremost, thanks boss!

    The pictures above should give you a good indication of the place. Bright and colorful amidst a myriad of food selections. The lunch buffet ranged between $30 to $40 per person. Buffet lunch is from 12pm to 2.30pm, after which you will be informed politely that you should leave.

    My First 2 Helpings - Cha soba, sashimi, prawns, mussels, scallops and cold cut duck meat are just the few appetiser dishes you can find at the buffet. I found the ingredients reasonably fresh and sweet. In particular, i found the prawns crunchy and sweet especially when you add some of the sauces on selection. Not too bad overall.

    Third and Fourth Helpings - Next up, more food! You can see the prawns i mentioned again along with some beancurd, sushi, more duck meat, chicken, a big piece of mutton, a big piece of sea bass, some eggs and some roast beef. Despite the large selection, it tasted average at best. Maybe it was just a case of too much meat. The only thing that felt distinguished was the chicken which was roasted with ground pepper and honey. The meat was a little too tough though.

    Dessert and final helpings - Even more food! The selection is quite astonishing. Even to this point, i've not had everything they had to offer. Chicken, crackers and roast beef round out the mains, while the dessert corner housed a few excellent selections. The log cakes in the dessert corner is excellent. Soft, sweet and mildly fluffy, this is one of the better log cakes i've had so far. It certainly helped that there were different selections of log cakes to try and the same excellence go for the other dessert helpings. With the exception of the chocolate fondue which was a little too thick and too bitter for my tastes. Otherwise, great dessert.

    Nice environment, huge selection and loads of great dessert. Although the huge selection of food are generally hit and misses, the dessert section is a league on its on. Good enough to recommend purchasing desserts from the restaurant. I'm frankly quite surprised that the food here is above average. Once again, thanks boss!

      Great location even though parking on weekends can be quite a challenge. Good food and ambience. A bit expensive for young adults. Very cosy and comfortable sitting for chilling out with friends. An improvement to the old Cafe Vienna in terms of food quality and service. Would be great if could make it more family friendly by allowing an area for family with infants and younger children in order not to disturb other diners. Would recommend to friends and family for occassional dining. Kudos!!

        Recently, I went to the Carousel, Royal Plaza on the Scotts with my bosses and colleagues. RP is owned by the Brunei King. So…. The restaurants in the hotel serve Halal food. Carousel serves International Halal Buffet, featuring Mediterranean, Asian, Salad and Japanese Stations with 3 desserts counters and fruit juice station. Wooooo… they have Chocolate Fondue leh!!!

        My Appetizer - the Japanese Station. The sushi is fresh. Soba is well cooked, sauce are not too salty. :D I took the Cold Seafood Selection - but they are tasteless. Need to go with the cocktail sauce or tobasco.

        The Hot Items Selection has too much for me to choose. They got Wagyu Beef which I dun take. I like their Lamb and Roast Chicken. ;D The seafood soup is so-so. Not flavourful enough.

        My Dessert - Vanilla Ice-cream with chocolate drops; Assorted fruits dip in Chocolate Fondue; and Mango Pudding. The Mango Pudding is too soft. Not nice. :p
