I had buffet lunch yesterday with my family @ Holiday Inn Hotel - Window on the park.  There is a promotion of 1-for-1 for DBS credit card.  The buffet start from 12pm to 2.30pm.

The environment is good, nice setup of the food.  There are sashimi, sushis, salad, bread, porridge, soup (Chinese style), baked fish, fried chicken, kebab, duck, dumpling, laksa, sandwiches, chocolate fondue and desserts etc.

The pro of the buffet is cheap (original price about S$58 net per person)
The con of the buffet is the food.  It is a bit salty. the noodles, fried rice, fried chicken and even the porridge, I find a bit salty.
