1-for-1 Buffet Promotions FAQ

What is a 1-for-1 buffet?

A 1-for-1 buffet promotion means that, for every paying diner, another person gets to enjoy the buffet for free. For example, if you come in a group of 4, you will be billed only 2 people’s worth. As long as you come in an even-numbered group, this results in effectively up to 50% savings. You may need to pay service fees for the “free” diners, though, and there’s usually a maximum number of guests per booking.

What is the best halal buffet in Singapore?

The most popular halal buffet restaurant in Singapore is definitely Carousel at Royal Plaza on Scotts. It is especially popular during Ramadan as a place for friends and families to break fast together. But Carousel’s prices can be expensive, with weekend dinner buffets costing close to S$100 per pax. You can get 20% discount with a credit card from AMEX, CIMB, Citibank, Maybank, OCBC, DBS/POSB or UOB.

Which international hotel buffet is the best in Singapore?

There are so many great hotel buffets in Singapore that it is impossible to choose just one. Some of the most popular international buffets are at Shangri-La Hotel (The Line), Fullerton Hotel (Town Restaurant), Carlton Hotel (Cafe Mosaic), Mandarin Orchard (Triple Three) and Marriott Hotel (Marriott Cafe). Fortunately, there are credit card buffet promotions for almost all of these.

How to choose the best lunch buffet?

If you are looking for a weekday lunch buffet for, say, a workplace celebration, you may consider the many hotels located in the CBD area. For example, Amara Singapore (Element Restaurant) and M Hotel Singapore (The Buffet) are both conveniently located in Tanjong Pagar, while Fullerton Hotel (Town Restaurant) is at Raffles Place. All of these hotels offer lunch buffet promotions in a smart setting.

Which credit card is best for hotel buffet dining?

We recommend using an air miles credit card or a generic cashback/rewards credit card to foot your hotel buffet bill. Although some credit cards give rebates or points in the dining category, users should note that hotel buffets are typically disqualified from that category. "Dining" covers merchants whose main business is in F&B, but in the case of hotel restaurants, the main business is in hospitality. Therefore, use a more generic credit card to avoid losing out on rebates or points.
