Oscar's @ Conrad Centennial Hotel
About Oscar's @ Conrad Centennial Hotel
Yet another in the family of lounge bars and restaurants that the Conrad Centennial Singapore Hotel can call its own, Oscar’s offers a buffet-style environment that never compromises on the five-star quality that this group of eateries down Temasek Boulevard in the City Hall district have become known for. Open very early until very late, Oscar’s is popular among hotel guests and public diners alike for its massive massive salad bar, outdoor noodle bar, enviable seafood selection, and live meat carving stations.
Take a look the highlights from Oscar’s Sunday Brunch menu, featuring Boston lobster, oyster, roast duck and suckling pig, all washed down with Laurent-Perrier Brut champagne. They offer a huge salad bar, superfood shakes and poached eggs, all cooked in front of you by expert chefs.
And be sure to check out the menu for the Voilah! French Festival held at Oscar’s from 18 April until 29 May!

Nice food and ambiance. Selection is not as wide as Line but of better quality. Seafood in particular is very good. Will definitely visit again.
While Oscar's is one of the pricier lunch buffets in Singapore, the wide spread of food options is excellent. From the noodle station to the extensive seafood options (including Japanese sashimi & sushi), plus various Indian themed dishes, the choices are broad indeed. I had mixed feelings about the dessert section (which, to me, should always be the highlight of any buffet!). The quality of the ice cream (Movenpick) was great, and the variety of cakes was also enticing. However, I was a little disappointed by the waffle station - it was a 5 minute wait for a small waffle square to be made (cut into 2 triangles to make it look like more - it didn't work). No doubt this ensures freshness as it is made on demand, but a pity that there is only one waffle maker machine that couldn't cope with the demand from hungry guests like myself. Having a glum-faced waffle chef also didn't give me as much cheer as waffles normally do. oh well, I guess nothing's perfect.
We came back after a 10yr absence. Good for seafood lovers, enjoyed the 4 types of oysters, prawn and Boston lobster but wish they had Alaskan king crab instead of Sri Lankan crab. The range of hot food, fruits and desserts seemed lacking. Staff seemed short handed and didn't inform us of a noodle bar station outside. The chef who shuckle oysters is very important, when he leaves his station to replenish stock his other colleagues are not efficient enough to perform the job, that increased the Q and waiting time. Also body part of lobster wasn't displayed until more patrons requested for it. Not sure what's with the ice-cream station, same also, actual product not displayed and have to request from staff. Other buffets would have left it to the guest to scoop. Overall experience is still good for a Sunday but there's still room for improvement.
Went on last Tuesday night. Quite crowded, luckily we made our booking earlier. It was a great experience with good service and helpful staffs. Fresh seafood varieties freshly prepared and cooked food were serve hot and fresh on heat trays the staffs replenish the food quite often, just that some of the dessert were not that nice. I would give it a 100 out of 100 if there were more choices! and Thanks for the complimentary birthday cake too! it was so delicious and nice! Would definitely come back again!
The spread is not huge, but what matter is that the quality of food is excellent. And I like that the place is not packed to the rim like some other places with people hawking the counters, so can really take your time to enjoy the food where time seems to pass slowly. Service wise also no complain. Noted that the sushi spread is puny, but I believe nobody is complaining with the recent raw food scare. Would definitely return, but not so soon.
My rating of 4 is for the festive buffet only. Overall, it is a little disappointing. Selection was not as wide as expected compared to what was shown on the website as most items were 'on rotation'. Did not see any slipper lobsters this time round. It seems more like an Asian buffet rather than a festive one. Fortunately, they maintained the quality of the food. Glad to see that the parmesan bowl for the tossed Caesar salad still around. Will definitely still go back again but will manage my expectations this time round.
Food range is not bad and selling point which is fresh oysters are there too. Food serving staff should be more polite though as they seems not happy to be answering questions we asked on the food they are serving. It was a packed restaurant on the day we went but service standard is relatively ok. Price is reasonable with citibank card discount of 15%. Will go again next time.
