Visited on 13 May 2017 (Sat). Beach Road Kitchen is a new all-day dining restaurant of JW Marriott. In case you have missed out this hotel, it is located just opposite Suntec City. FYI, Beach Road Kitchen is not inside the main hotel building, but situated at a separate building beside the hotel main entrance.

Let's look at the photos of the huge Beach Road Kitchen restaurant below! 
You can hold gatherings for family and friends here!

Alfresco Seating

Some of the Dinner Buffet Items Added:

Additional "Cooked To Order Seafood Items" when I revisited on 14 June 2017 during dinner buffet

This is one of their catch of the day, inside is like those salmon meat. Love the charred taste of the charcoal grilled skin with some salt sprinkled on it to make the overall taste good. The fish were all served on a pizza board - Presentable!

Another fish that we had - Extremely tender and juicy meat that I love so much!

Grilled Squid, Prawns and Yabbies! They were all so good!!!

Baked Whole Sea Bass (Left)
Soft Shell Crab (Right)

Freshly Shucked Oysters

Black Pepper Crab
I must say the black pepper crab here is the best among hotel buffet. First -  The crabs here were chopped into smaller pieces so that it's easier to eat, and I managed to eat it without using my hands! 2nd - The crabs here were fresh! I have experienced soggy crab meat in some hotels. 3rd - The crab meat were infused thoroughly by the great black pepper taste!

Dessert Station (Dinner Buffet)

Mango Shortcake

Dulcey Vanilla Hazelnut

 Berry Tiramisu
 They have improved in their Tiramisu! I can taste the espresso, enough sponge finger within it and not too creamy. Overall there is a balance in the mixture! This is the BEST Tiramisu dessert that I had now!

Ricotta Cannoli

 36 Hour Tea Verrine
I was amazed when I saw this dessert. I've been to so many hotel buffet and this is the first time to see such a unique dessert presentation as well as such a unique creation. It was something like a tea jelly with some tea leaves atop the foam. You will appreciate this dessert if you're a tea lover, just like me! :)

Raspberry Chocolate Cremeux Dome

Chocolate Marquise

I like the crepe suzette during dinner buffet!

I usually don't take pizza at buffets as I feel most of them were not good. But I was very surprised that this mushroom pizza with truffle turned out to be my favourite here! In fact, I had 3 pieces! Hahaha.. They were freshly made on the spot. The generous mushroom topping was enhanced with the taste of truffle. Look out for this signature pizza when you're here!

 L.A. Galbi Short Ribs

I just couldn't get enough of the squid! Peppery and savory, the seasoning was really "Power"! You have to try it to know what I mean ;) Prawns were also grilled just right, charred at the edges and tender in the middle!

Dessert Station

Strawberry Eclairs

Dulcey Vanilla Hazelnut

I love to see Tiramisu at buffets! But I was quite disappointed with the Tiramisu here as the mascarpone cheese was way over creamy that you can't even taste any espresso inside. I can hardly find any sponge finger too, there wasn't a balance in it. Hope the chef can improve in this.

Waffle & Crepe Station

Free Flow Coffee & TWG Tea Selection
I love their black coffee but the cappucino was with too much foam so it tasted over milky.

My first time seeing such a huge selection of candy and marshmallows in jars!

If you have any birthday or anniversary celebration, remember to indicate at the special request box when you book via the chope reservation system above. The restaurant will provide a cake for your celebration. If you're too full to consume the cake, you can request to takeaway the cake. But we cannot understand why they only put it in the box and give us without a carrier bag until we requested. I have read other reviews on this issue as well. 

Overall Impression on both Lunch & Dinner Buffet (Updated on 28 June 2017): 

I was really quite impressed with the food and dessert selection at Beach Road Kitchen especially the Grill and the Antipasti sections. The arrangement of the antipasti section made it look like the room was filled with food! 

Rest assured that you will get high quality food at Beach Road Kitchen. Desserts were exquisite and quite good compared to other hotels. I love to see desserts stored in a chiller, this should be the way! But there are some other hotels who still place dessert without a chiller.

Notes for improvement: 

Although the restaurant was not fully booked, the clearing of plates was really slow during lunch and dinner buffet. And we have encountered, there were no staff around us for at least 6 times out of 10 times when we need them to clear our plates or ordering of coffee and tea. For Colony @Ritz Carlton, they will assign 1 or 2 staff at each section, so that we can get the staff attention easily.  

I hope Beach Road Kitchen can take note that, the table is so small for those "Table for Two" and this is a buffet session, if they don't clear the plates fast for those small tables, we have to place our used plates on the empty table next to us so that we have space to eat. (But it doesn't look nice) They have to improve on their service level.

I would still highly recommend this place as the selection of food and dessert were quite impressive. Hope to see improvements in their service. It would be good if they can remove some other not so popular dessert items behind the waffle/crepe and probably add a few sorbet to the ice-cream selection ;)
