Marriott Cafe Buffet Dinner @ Tang Plaza Review

Marriott Cafe Buffet Dinner Price and Photo
Marriott Cafe is conveniently located right beside Orchard MRT, on the ground floor of Tang Plaza Hotel. Mum and I got to enjoy the Marriott Cafe 1 for 1 promotion through CIMB credit card - we went for a weekday dinner buffet price for $70++ for 2.

Image of oysters and sashimi buffet
Restaurant interior was grand and comfortable. Of course the dinner buffet comes with freshly shucked oysters with hot sauce and lime, and sashimi. The supply was continuous. I never had to wait for it to come in batches like some other buffet places.

Other than salmon, the Sashimi and Japanese Sushi served include Yellow Fin Tuna, Salmon Sashimi Futo Maki, California Roll, Nigiri Wasabi, Pickled Ginger.

seafood buffet menu

Seafood Selections include Boston Lobster (Friday & Saturday dinner, Sunday lunch), Freshly Shucked Oysters, Snow Crab Legs (dinner), Poached Prawn Crayfish Gong-Gong (lunch).

ham machine cheese

For starters / appettizers - under Charcuterie and Cheese, you get a selection of freshly sliced Smoked, Cured and Air Dried Meats Mustards, Pickles, Chutney Selection of Imported European Farmhouse Cheeses Dried Fruit, Nut Confit, Truffle Honey, Crackers, Grissini, Lavosh.

There is also a Salad and Olive Bar with Freshly Chopped Condiments with Assorted Mixed Lettuces Dressings, Flavored Oils and Vinegars, Fine Imported Olives Grains, Seed and Nuts. Accomplished unlocked for me includes - eating 6 different type of olives in one meal. Conclusion - still don't like them.

Besides sashimi, salmon lovers can also hit the Salmon Station for Norwegian Smoked Salmon Gravlax Salmon Sour Cream, Lemon, Dill Mustard Dressing, Capers, Cocktail Onion, Horseradish. Personally, raw salmon trumps smoked salmon, so this station didn't leave much impression for me.

crispy pork saddle marriott cafe
On to mains - Beech Oven Roasted Australian Prime Ribs, Roast Leg of Lamb, Pork Saddle Stuffed With Prunes and Pancetta Baked, Whole Fish of the Day and Vegetable Gratin. The crispy pork saddle is my absolute favourite - its like a mix between Chinese roasted pork mixed with German pork knuckles.

The whole baked fish was one of the highlights as well. Potato gratin was nice and cheesy, but an evil buffet dish to fill your stomach up with carbs.

roast beef menu

The roast beef, on the other hand, is so-so compared to the rest of the meat galore.

Chinese Barbecue Meats duck

To compliment the western roast selection, there is the Chinese Barbecue Meats: Wan Hao Special Crispy Chicken and Chicken Rice, Crispy pork belly, Roasted duck, Char Siu Pork

Other cooked mains includes - Hot Western: Braised Chicken in Lemon & Thyme Sauce, Fish of the Day, Sautéed Lamb, Pork Cheek with Dry Fruits, Braised Beef, Short Ribs, Veal Tongue, Fricassee Vegetarian Option.

make your own noodles menu

Asian Cuisine: Spicy Beef with Capsicum Kailan with Oyster Sauce, Singapore Chilli Crab, Sliced Pork with Snow Peas, Steamed Fish with Black Beans and Braised Ee Foo Noodles. Although the menu didn't write it, we also had drunken prawn noodle soup and it is a must try - prawn and Chinese herbal soup with a light trace of alcohol.

You can also make you own noodles at the Live Noodles Station: Hong Kong Egg Noodles, Chicken Broth, Vegetable Broth, Szechuan Broth Fresh Daily Market Condiments; you get to choose your own ingredients for the noodles!


Besides DIY chinese noodles, there is also a Live Pasta Station - I had great fun choosing my own ingredients - i.e. extra cheese, sausages, bacon and salami slices in cream sauce.

black spaghetti with cheese

And I chose squid ink spaghetti. All ingredients are mixed and stirred friend on the spot for you. It's honestly the best pasta I've ever eaten. 

Vegetarian Sides include  Truffle Soft Polenta, Pearl Barley Risotto, Nutmeg Creamed Spinach and Spicy Lentils. Can't really taste the truffle, none worth mentioning.

cupcakes desserts buffet

No buffet is complete without the Desserts: Selection of House Made Cakes, Puddings, Crèmes, Curds handcrafted by the pastry team. For my meal, there were the red velvet cupcakes, choco tart, flourless cake, prune lapis, nyonya kueh. All worthy of the mention because they tasted awesome even on a full stomach.

The mint chocolate pudding mousse was just as awesome and refreshing.

ice cream menu

And we end off with a tempting display of Ice Cream Gelato - vanilla, strawberry, choco, mango, cookies and cream and toppings, you name it. Perfect ending to the meal. Make sure you catch the next 1-for-1 offer, I know I will!
