    Not much food option and coz the theme is lunar new year but the Chinese food did not taste good. The buffet area is small and crowds of people. Seafood is fresh and sashimi only have salmon

    I organised Christmas dinner for my work Christmas celebration and was very very disappointed with quality of food but also very disappointed how little of selection of seafood dishes was. and generally not much of selection. Dinner definitely wasnt worth the money and it was my first buffett dinner visit in Cafe Opera and I dont think I will come back. But the same time need to mentioned that staff was Amazing Service was beautifull we were given lovely room but no Christmas decoration ,no Christmas spirit Kind Regards Renata

    Nice setting and we were very surprised at the lovely dessert that was brought out for my mum's birthday. Selection of food was ok and great fresh seafood.

    The welcome and service was excellent. The setting was rather cramped. Disappointment was in the fairly ordinary nature of the food … something you may expect on a Monday but not at a Saturday dinner. We could only consider it overpriced in the circumstances.

    Food variety was limited. Was seated outside and didn’t feel like part of the restaurant as floor was tiled whereas the area within the restaurant was carpeted. Service was not very attentive.

    Despite booking the restaurant early in the week, was seated on the outside corridor on arrival. Not many choices for Deluxe Seafood Buffet.

    10 stars! This is one of the best restaurants I’ve been to in a very long time. Service was outstanding the vibe was incredible and the food was out of this world! If I have any suggestions the only one would be to include a nice red onion vinaigrette for the oysters! Beautiful

    We sat in the balcony area, which was very pleasant. The atmosphere got a lot more hectic near the buffet, and queues developed at peak times near the seafood and the desserts because we were all being funnelled to finish within the two sitting times, so we all ate and queued for the same kind of good at the same time). The seafood was lovely, but the neT was tough and I could not eat it. Desserts a little over sweet. Service was great.

    Cafe Opera offers a variety of gourmet salads and fabulous seafood. It also offers an extensive hot food buffet, desserts and much more. We enjoyed a wonderful buffet, thank you.
