Why Go?

Spectrum's intelligently curated items on the buffet are not overwhelming—rich but not complicated, and its sleek stylish interiors are simple and cosy. Here, size (whether of servings or space) doesn’t matter. The quality of each dish prepared in the open kitchen beckons you to return.

Tatler Tips

To start, indulge in a variety of cold cuts and cheeses, as well as farm-fresh salads. Have some plump scallops and mussels baked to perfection to further stir your appetite. At the sushi station, you can have fresh salmon sashimi sliced in front of you, or a unique suckling pig sushi rolled in sesame seeds. If you are craving for Italian fare, sample the scrumptious four-cheese pizza straight from the wood-fired oven. For exotic Indian flavours, delectable kebabs from the tandoor, as well as hummus and buttery roti are a musttry. The carvery has succulent rib-eye and lamb seared the way you want, with baked potatoes on the side. Peking duck and dim sum favourites like hakaw and siew mai are good options at the Chinese station. Desserts are aplenty, but the superstars here are the mango sorbet and bite-size honey combs on edible chocolate cups at the honey corner.
