Visited on 27 May 2018 (Sun). 10 SCOTTS exudes an aura of elegance and relaxation with its contemporary decor complemented by a breathtaking view of the cascading waterfall. This place is quite 'atas' so i would suggest that you not dress too casually.  

The ambience here is those 'tai-tai style' of high tea with comfy sofa and cushions for you to couch. It makes you feel right at home (Residential-Style Lounge)



These are the best seats to see cascading waterfall by the window but sadly to say that there is no table for 2 at this area, here are for big tables...

Ice Cream & Sherbet

Vanilla with Pretzel Ice-Cream (Left)
Summer Berry Sherbet (Right)



2-Tier Stand
Top Tier: 8 Dessert Selections
Bottom Tier: Fruits
(All are Refillable)


This is the only dessert that I like from the top tier... The chocolate looked very rich but tasted quite light with pandan layer at the bottom. A very unique dessert!




Cappuccino & Latte

Mocha



2 Types of  Extra Coffee (Pass Around)
The waitresses will go around to pass you some drip coffee brewed for hours from South America. Black Coffee and Coffee with Milk. I still prefer the black coffee! 


Beverages Menu (Free-Flow)







Overall Impression: The service here was quite good but not warm... Plates were cleared regularly, food and beverages were served promptly. But... Compared to my previous last few years visit, the food quality and dessert selection seemed to be lacklustre now. I would rather not to have the seafood selection, but instead give us premium quality food & dessert selection as this is a high tea buffet. 

The price is a little steep for the buffet selection. But overall ambience + experience is really a good one. Still worth a visit to have the tai tai style of high tea! :)

Upon entering the restaurant, the first eye catching element is the expansive three-metre long meat carving station! Highlighting an impressive and comprehensive display of three to four top-quality cuts of beef, lamb, pork and chicken. An experienced carver is always on the ready to serve up customers’ preferred cuts. Just behind the carving station is a range of top-of-the-line roasting ovens and rotisserie where the meats are carefully prepared daily for diners.




Window Seat View


My favourite rotisserie chicken roasting on a rotating spit!




Dessert Station
Apologies to the poor lighting at their dessert station which made the photo so dull... 

Signature English Trifle Cake
(Only available during Dinner Buffet)
 This is a dessert made with fruit, a thin layer of sponge fingers soaked in sherry or another fortified wine, custard & whipped cream. So far only The Carvery has this extraordinary dessert in Singapore! If you ask me, honestly I felt that the standard of this dessert has dropped compared to last time. The overall texture was not well-balanced. But if you have not tried their english trifle before, I think this dessert still stands out.

Raspberry Lychee Cake


Strawberry Panna Cotta


Banana Crumble


Refreshing Fruit Cocktail

Prawns, Mussels and Oysters On Ice
Note: Oysters only available during dinner!




Very crispy pork knuckle that you have to try!


Beef
Seared on the outside locking in all the juices on the inside, You can expect juicy and tender beef here!

The standard in their signature rotisserie chicken has dropped. The meat was not that tender compared to last time. Chef, please take note.

Overall Impression: The service here was alright, just that the plates were not cleared fast. The food quality here was not bad. As you can see from the above photos, the dishes offered here were mostly healthy and home-cooked food type, so do not expect anything lavish. As they do not have wide selection of food, you might feel disappointed if you're a big eater. For me I'm a medium eater, so this kind of selection is good enough for me. :)

I felt that this place is really suitable for families as the food were mostly healthy type. As for the desserts, the pastry chef has to put in some effort to improve the quality and the selection. The dessert selection here are more or less boring & the same kind. They served quite good coffee here. They have changed the tea brand from The Gryphon to "The 1872 Clipper Tea Co." now. But I still prefer the Gryphon tea brand leh. Sobz Sobz.. 

Don't tu liaoz.. The 1 for 1 deal only available till end June! Even no wide variety of food also still worth it!!! Chiong arr.....................

After the dinner buffet, you still can come out to have a stroll at the poolside as well as hop over to Aqua Luna for some drinks - All at same floor, so convenient! (Photo below) 

Aqua Luna - Romantic Ambience at Night


Aqua Luna which is just outside The Carvery, is an alfresco bar situated on the infinity pool. I think this is really cool, isn't it?!
