Amara hotel is one of the most popular hotels around the Tanjong Pagar area. It is conveniently located within walking distance from the Tanjong Pagar MRT station and next to a newly renovated shopping mall, 100 AM Mall.
Upon entering Element, you can find that the restaurant is elegantly decorated with warm lightings, it is very cosy and a comfortable place to dine with family and friends.
Diners will be pleased with a wide spread of International cuisine from Japanese, Western, Chinese to local favourites on the buffet spread waiting for you to indulge in.
Not many hotel buffet restaurants serve Japanese sashimi as they would normally need a dedicated chef to slice the sashimi and served fresh.
We are impressed with the service provided by the chef at the Japanese station. In addition to salmon and tuna sashimi, he also prepared a variety of sushi at the station.
Another station which is also our favourite is the noodle station where the chef will cook the noodles on the spot for you. Enjoy a bowl of piping hot and freshly cooked noodles. We had authentic Laksa noodle on the day of our visit.
For Dim Sum fans, there is also a fairly good selection of savoury Dim Sum items available, ranging from Siew Mai, Prawn Dumping (Har Kau), Lotus Leaf Glutinous Rice and different types of Steam Pau like Chicken Pau and Char Siew Bun.
Delight in a range of delectable hot food items and popular items like Singapore Chili Crabs, Fried Black Pepper Crayfish, Fried Carrot Cake and more!
Chilli crab is a must have for all the top buffet restaurants in Singapore and it is also available at this buffet spread. At Elements, the crabs are fairly large, succulent and juicy. The chili gravy is excellent and comparable to some of the top Chinese restaurants which serve chili crabs.
Seafood lovers can also look forward to the fresh seafood station where it served an impressive range of fresh moreton bay bugs, mussels, clams, scallops and cooked prawns on ice.
This is a family friendly restaurant with a large variety of food items that will cater to the taste and preference of everyone in the family, from young to old. In fact, we noticed a few three generation families (grandparents, parents and children) dining together at the restaurant on the day of our visit.
We ended our sumptuous brunch with a wonderful range of assorted yummy desserts, cakes and freshly cut fruits and refreshing drinks from the drinks station, comprising of local-flavoured drinks like Chin Chow, Longan and more. Coffee and Tea are also available.
