Swensen’s Unlimited. I was not expecting this!

    My name is Wilber and I love buffets. For that matter, I also love ice cream. For the record, before I went for Swensen’s Unlimited at Changi Airport T2, I disliked Swensen’s. This is because I had bad experiences at the Swensen’s outlet at Causeway Point. The food there is horrible. It is cooked with very little care. It is like the people at that outlet could not be bothered.

    Therefore, when my team decided to go to Swensen’s Unlimited at T2, I had my reservations. Initially, I did not want to go. However, I thought that this would be a good opportunity for me to test the Honour Magic 6 Pro which was provided to me from Honor. The photos in this review that were taken with the Honor Magic Pro will have the phone’s signature in the photo.

    This was me using the phone at the end of the buffet. This area was where the reservation queue was.

    p.s. That review and the review of the Honour Magic V2 will be out soon after I put the phones through their paces.

    Our reservation for 9 pax was at 830 pm. We reached at 805 pm. We had to join the reservation queue.

    “reserve still need to queue ah??!!??”

    So many things to do. I need to take photos, review the phone, take videos and eat buffet.

    Ok, please watch this video to support.

    This buffet better be good! I can say that based on price to quality ratio, this buffet is worth your time. Here is why.

    The great…

    The seafood is fresh. I was surprised by the quality based on the price of the buffet.

    If you can, spam the fish and chips. The turnover is very high. The batter is always crispy and the fish is soft.

    Kueh pie tee… Just whack. So good. The fillings are so tasty.

    Baked rice. If you can afford the calories. I could not afford the calories but I could not resist. I had a few. Could not keep track. The chicken in the baked rice is soft and tender. I believe it was thigh meat.

    You know how mee goreng can be overcooked and too spicy. If there was an example of how mee goreng should be, this is it.


    The good…

    I am excused from salads. However, my table had those who were salad fans. The ingredients were fresh. The potato salad was particularly good.

    Everyone needs to eat a little vegetables. Ok, I ate this. Was ok.


    The ok…

    The Peranakan section was decent.

    The roast beef was just ok. Nothing fantastic.

    I heard so much about the pizzas at this buffet. They were made fresh on the spot. Hand-stretched. But just about passable.

    Get the durian gelato. There was both ice cream and gelato. The gelato was better.

    This is gelato…

    This is ice cream…

    Total really have 48 different flavours of ice cream and gelato. That is what they said on their website. Really true. I wanted to try everything. I think I will end up in hospital for diabetes if I did that.


    Can don’t bother…

    Amazingly, the desserts were not that good. Spend time on the other foods.

    I really don’t know where they got the kueh from. It looks fake, it tastes bad and I wasted some of my capacity for this! Observe how the Honor Magic6 Pro captures the glistening plastic look of the kueh.


    Other points to note:

    The drinks selection was wide. You could have tea, coffee or soft drinks. There was a constant shortage of ice.

    The restaurant is quite big. You would expect chaos from such a large crowd. However, the management of the food queues and the limit of 90 minutes for each diner helped to keep the dining experience pleasant.

    The buffet rates differ depending on the day of the week.

    Lunch rates:
    Monday to Friday: $31 (Adult), $15 (Child)
    Saturday to Sunday, Eve of Public Holidays and Public Holidays: $50 (Adult), $30 (Child)

    Dinner rates (Dinner starts at 5pm and Dinner rates apply for seating from 4.30 pm onwards):
    Monday to Thursday: $35 (Adult), $25 (Child)
    Friday to Sunday, Eve of Public Holidays and Public Holidays: $60 (Adult), $30 (Child)

    There is a 90 minute dining time.
    Complimentary dining for child aged 4 and below for every paying adult.

    I think paying less than $40 per pax for the Sewnsen’s Unlimited buffet is something acceptable. However, anything more than that and you are creeping into hotel buffet territory. With the use of credit card promotions, some 1-for-1 or 50% off promotions for certain buffets also come up to about $50-60 per pax.

    My verdict: Weekday can come.

    I’m so full…
