The name Ritz-Carlton has a reputation for luxury and evokes certain expectations. Here in Singapore’s Downtown Core at Marina Bay, the prestigious Raffles Avenue hotel certainly doesn’t disappoint – and that goes for its resident restaurants as well. Colony’s name alludes to the late-18th-century era of global exploration and colonial expansion by the British and other European powers, voyaging to the East Indies for trade and commerce. Appropriately, Colony is adorned with ornate gold-leaf detailing, vintage maps and postcards that evoke nostalgia for a bygone time. Diners can watch as chefs masterfully create dishes at seven open concept kitchens. Go on a multi-sensory journey through Singapore’s rich culinary history, from Asian, Indian and Western delicacies to desserts, seafood and grilled dishes that encapsulate the flavours of the nation’s rich, complex past.
Eating out in Singapore is always a treat, and right at the top end of the dining scene in the city is the Downtown Core, where the classiest hotels and restaurants are to be found. One of the very best places to stay – and to pick up a meal – is the Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore on Raffles Avenue, where they boast several restaurants, including the Michelin-starred Summer Pavilion and the internationally renowned and orientated Colony. Colony offers a buffet set menu with seven stations, from which one can peruse international delicacies from all around the world. Getting there

Food Super nice and my kids love it. This is my second time there. The salad was my first choice and I love the fish too
Fried chinese buns (Mantous) are again disappointing but the rest of the food makes up for it. Love the variety of food here but would love to see some new dishes as I've been here many times and food is almost always the same. Service was excellent as usual.
Service is excellent as usual. The food standard is on par. One of my favourite things about the Colony is their decor and the food quality
