Elements – An international buffet with slight Spanish influences


Amara Hotel near Tanjong Pagar MRT


It’s the end of the year again, and that’s an excuse to feast with the colleagues for this interaction day! I always like the dessert section as their decor changes with the festive season and that gives you the mood to gobble!


Well, after an uplift, Elements looks much modern and current than before. With a Spanish chef within them, their international buffet also includes some Spanish delights such as Paella which took me by surprise when I spotted it.

So, Elements wasn’t as impressive as I thought it would be after having read quite a few reviews. Quality of the food is OK, not too bad but you know you could have better buffet elsewhere. Anyway, it was still a good Christmas / interaction lunch bantering with the colleagues!

Verdict: An average restaurant.
