Buffets? Eat all you can? Do you want a change from a certain Nordic Restaurant in SM? Try L’fisher’s Ripples Restaurant and their awesome weekend buffets!
Ripples Restaurant has two very special buffets on Fridays and Saturdays. We went on a Friday for their Heart of the Sea – Seafood buffet and we enjoyed everything!
Their dinner buffet starts at 6pm but as early as 530 pm people are coming in to get seats. There’ s a lot of awesome dishes on display. Our attention was drawn to a spectacular fruit carving with heaps of delicious seafood arranged attractively around it.
There’s a salad section which also holds the sushi and sashimi section. Ripples Restaurant has really good tuna sashimi – you could taste the clear, fresh flavor of the tuna. They also have Maguro Tuna as well as tamagoyaki and maki rolls.
There’s also a tempura station where the chefs are busy preparing freshly cooked tempura and deep fried calamari. They fry your tempura right in front of you – fresh, hot tempura – the taste is indescribable!
The service at Ripples was fantastic. The staff was friendly and kept offering to refill our drinks, clear our plates, etc. We also fortunate to catch a bit of live entertainment as there was an excellent female singer performing in the lobby. Great Ambiance! I also loved that my guests and I didn’t have to compete with other diners over premium menu items such as shrimp tempura and other treats – they were quickly refilled by the staff.
After checking out the salad and tempura section we went off to check out their main dishes. Ripples made a huge selection of dishes available and there were also a couple of non seafood items such as roast beef and chicken – perfect for those who want a little bit of variety.
There was also a lovely dessert table filled with delicious desserts. But since it was placed in a darker area, I didn’t notice the table until the very end of our dinner (when I was almost full.)
We loved the tiny chocolates filled with cream! We loved the creme brulee and slices of cheesecake.
These are just a few of the many pictures I took of Ripples restaurant’s seafood buffet. We had an enjoyable dinner – no crowds, no frantic scrambling for food. Everything was just perfect.
Here’s the things I loved about Ripples Restaurant

Give Ripples Restaurant a try! This is a very good place to have a buffet. If you miss the Friday buffet, don’t worry – they also have a good buffet on Saturdays! Call ahead for reservations. There’s a DRESS CODE but it’s very basic – no slippers, sando…
