It was through Deal.com.sg that I found Hua Kai Yuan. Or else, it will be difficult to notice the restaurant since it is located in Tan Quee Lan street, where the competitions among steamboat buffet operators are boiling like hot soup.

Hua Kai Yuan has a tight floor plan.  Therefore, it could only catered for narrow spaces in between the tables and accomodated that many seats (I counted less than 30). However, the seats are mostly with high wooden backing that could shield the diners, giving them some privacy and comfort.

The raw materials found on the buffet spread are the typical affair. However, the meats here are generously sliced into larger pieces.  I supposed the chefs wanted customers to taste the juiciness of the meats since they are mostly lightly marinated.

There are a few warmer with cooked food and also various types of kimchi. You could quench your thirst with as much ice water and beverages (ice-tea and lime juice) as you want on the buffet table.

Although the restaurant provide Planta margarine to enhance the aroma of the BBQ, their thin and flavourless sauces have too much rooms for improvement. The desserts section was also disappointing as the buffet served only cut fruits and ice cream.

In spite of some glaring shortcomings, dinning at Hua Kai Yuan is still not a bad experience if you are looking for a quick, no-frills buffet BBQ meal.  By the way, I have a decent Korean BBQ buffet feast at the restaurant for merely S$14 per adult, thanks to the promotion in Deal.com.sg.
