Description: The Tiffin Room’s décor and ambience reflects the Hotel’s glory days from the turn of the century to the 1930s. The designs of the tables, chairs, and uniforms are all based on early photographs. Square teak tables – including many Raffles Hotel’s originals – are combined with 'palm back' bentwood chairs.
The brisk, white-jacketed waiters wear badges which replicate a prewar tukang badge, or 'water carrier' badge, while the silver vase and salt and pepper shakers are replicate of decades-old silver plate pieces discovered in a storeroom during the restoration.
Dining at Tiffin Room is an essential experience at Raffles Hotel. Tiffin Room's curry buffet is a hot favourite with tourists and Singapore residents alike. Available daily at lunch and dinner, the elaborate buffet features authentic Northern Indian specialities including vegetarian curries for the non-meat diners.
An international spread highlights at breakfast, and the extremely popular High Tea features an English High Tea stand and a buffet. Reservations for High Tea are strongly recommended.
The private dining room at the south end comfortably seats 8 to 12 persons, and is ideal for intimate dinner parties and corporate entertainment as the quiet charm of the restaurant is evident even at its busiest moments.
The Tiffin Room serves an iconic afternoon champagne high tea, where polished silverware and crisp white linens add to old-world charm and décor that complements the quintessential colonial experience. Dishes served include a mix of petite finger sandwiches, freshly baked pastries and scones served with clotted cream and sweet homemade jams.
