Went for the evening buffet. Good service, good buffet, great drinks. All in a historic hotel setting your grandparents aspired to.

Visited the Tiffen Room to celebrate the delivery of a very successful business partnership. The setting was stunning, the service impeccable and the Indian buffet simply delicious. Certainly the kind of place for a special occasion.

An enjoyable High tea experience in a majestic setting. Service was good, only minor complaint was that the sandwich bread could have been fresher.

The Raffles Afternoon tea, served in the Tiffin Room, was lovely and well worth a visit. My top tip, to avoid having to queue in the sweltering heat is to arrive 15 minutes after the official start time.

  • This restaurant is at Raffles Hotel Singapore
Dining at Tiffin Room is an essential experience at Raffles Singapore. At lunch and dinner, the curry buffet is a hot favourite both with tourists and locals alike. Expect authentic North Indian specialities, including vegetarian curries for non-meat diners. In the afternoon, the restaurant partakes in a classic English tradition and serves High Tea. Delicate morsels are arranged on a tiered tea cosy, while what does not fit is displayed as a buffet. Breakfast too is served at Tiffin Room, featuring a delectable international spread. Tiffin translates into "a light mid-day meal". Enjoying it with curry on Sunday was an essential aspect of colonial life in the early 20th century, with Raffles Singapore serving it since 1899. To recognise this tradition, the main dining room was officially named Tiffin Room in 1976.
