Triple Three @ Mandarin Orchard Hotel

We were at Triple Three for this year CNY dinner and I was a bit surprised to find the buffet offering was different from others, especially the steak counter.

Recently, I heard the head chef changed so when we went there, I was hoping there were total revamp of the buffet; but it was not much different, even the steak counter was removed.

What was different was the grill section, replacing the steak counter was a cook-on-the-spot cubes of beef wagyu, stir-fry bean sprout, ready for you to spoon out. Something new also the baked gindara fillet and few others; but the star was the Mentaiko Lobster which clearly the fave.

Still loving the Japanese counter next to it, the tempura and cold cha-soba for your taking.

What I disliked the most, was the new Drunken Prawn section, I always think it is such a cruel way of cooking live prawns. 

The rest of the section was still similar to previous, the Chilled Seafood, Sushi, Indian, Roast, Dessert...

As it was still during Mooncakes festival, the dessert section also served the hotel mooncakes for your taking.

I felt the cakes on dessert section relied to much on chocolate cakes in various types.

Service was okay, I think they were overwhelmed once the crowd was starting pouring in.

A bit confusing on their counter arrangement, I expected the sushi counter to be next to tempura but it's on next lane.

Tables next to window was dimmer as there was no direct lighting above it.

For the price they are charging, it definitely being peg on upmarket hotel buffet but somehow I felt it is not really a buffet I am keen to return...
