We started off the June holidays with a family dinner at Starz Restaurant at RWS. They are currently having a kids eat free promotion which is just perfect for us.
They have a Japanese section with an assortment of sushi for the kids and salmon and tuna sashimi for the adults.
The kids were really happy with the spread of food, and even #5 who is a picky eater ate a lot. He had the pasta, chicken rice, roti prata, mushroom soup and potato wedges.

She even said hi to the people sitting at the next table and struck up a conversation with them. She kept saying “Nice?” and nodding her head enthusiastically. They found her so adorable that they entertained her and made her laugh.

The chicken curry was really quite good, especially when eaten with the prata.
For the adults, they have fresh oysters, fresh prawns, clams and mussels at the cold section.
The local selection included items like sliced fish, prawns, pandan chicken, otak otak, laksa and drunken prawns in herbal soup. They also had a small salad section.
What we really liked was the gelato. I normally don’t eat ice cream at buffets, but the kids kept saying it was really good so I tried the yam, green tea and apple flavours. Yup, I’d have to agree the kids are right!
The last time we came here was 1 year ago when they had this same promotion. This round, when we were deciding where to eat, this was one of the options I gave them and it was a unanimous decision. The strange thing was, they all remembered it as the hotel buffet with the very posh toilet! Somehow, they really liked the cool and adultish vibe of this place and they had very good memories of it.

#1 actually had her ‘O’ levels chinese paper the next day, so she was busy revising. The amazing thing about her is that she can study anywhere. Some friends were telling me how impressed they were with her because during her PSLE days, our house would be filled with many neighbourhood kids yet she could concentrate even with all that noise and activity going on around her.
My verdict? The selection is not huge like in some buffets, but it is definitely sufficient to feed even the fussy eaters. Considering it is a buffet, the standard of the food is quite good. But what I felt was worth the money was the whole dining experience. Don’t ask me exactly why, but the kids just love this place and they were laughing and enjoying themselves the whole time.
Save tip: Kids Dine Free promotion: Up to 4 kids aged 4-12 years old dines free with every 2 paying guests. I was informed that this promotion should last till at least August 2014. Without the promotion, I really don’t think it’s worth the price, but since the kids get to eat for free, we’ll definitely be back to try the high tea!
