Lime Restaurant @ PARKROYAL COLLECTION Pickering - Highly Anticipated LobsterFest Buffet Returns From Now Till 6 August 2023


Lime Restaurant and Bar's highly anticipated LobsterFest Buffet is back this year! It is available daily for dinner (6.30pm to 9.30pm) from now till 6 August 2023. At $166++ per adult, the buffet includes unlimited servings of beer, chilled juices, coffee and tea. It is at $98++ for each child aged 6 to 12 years and $59++ for each child aged 3 to 5 years.


In addition to the unlimited servings of lobsters done in countless ways, this year's buffet also features a line-up of renowned grill masters who will take over the outdoor barbecue on selected weekends.

Seafood Assortment

I went straight to the fresh Seafood Assortment section. Here you'll find sizable Boston Lobsters with myriad condiments, including cocktail sauce, ponzu dressing, worcestershire sauce, Thai basil and more. Alongside the Boston Lobsters were Prawns, Black Mussels, White Clams, Half Shell Scallops and Boston Lobster Claws. All of which were sufficiently fresh and sweet.

Lobster Brioche

One of the live stations that immediately caught our eye was the Lobster Brioche's. It was a pleasant mouthful of lobster bites tossed in a mayonnaise-based sauce filled in soft brioche..

Boston Lobster Caesar Salad

Moving to the salad section, it has another feature on lobster with its Boston Lobster Caesar Salad.

Composed Salads

For non-lobster options, the other Composed Salads include Lemon Orzo & Chick Pea, Louise Mixed Seafood Salad, Seasonal Tomato & Mozzarella, and Watermelon, Cucumber & Feta Cheese.

Chef Specials’ Lobsters

One of the most popular stations at the buffet was the corner with Chef Specials’ Lobsters (Asian). Choose from the Pickering Lobster Laksa, Kam Heong Lobster, Steamed Lobster with Ginger Garlic Paste & Chinese Wine or Singapore Chilli Lobster served with fried mantou.

Kam Heong Lobster

My favourite among the Chef Specials’ hot lobster dishes was the Kam Heong Lobster. It was very fragrant with the use of generous savoury dried shrimp and curry leaves. I also appreciated how despite the flavourful kam heong base, the lobster’s natural juiciness and sweetness are still retained.

Pickering Lobster Laksa

Do not miss out on their signature Pickering Lobster Laksa for its lemak soup base and addition of tender lobster meat.

Baked Boston Lobster Thermidor

At the Chef Specials' (Western) corner, the creamy Lobster Mac & Cheese and Baked Boston Lobster Thermidor would satisfy any cheesy lovers.

Cheese Board

If you're hungry for even more cheese, head to the Cheese Board Station, where you will be able to select from Cracked Parmesan, Brie, and Marinated Baby Mozzarella to be paired with Assorted Dried Fruits, Fig Compote and Cheese Crackers. My favourite here was the Cracked Parmesan.

Cold Cuts

For Cold Cuts, they featured Hungarian Salami and Air-dried Black Forest Ham, with a range of condiments which include rockmelon and pickled gherkins.

Live Carving Station

The Live Carving Station was another popular stop for many diners. The highlights included the Roast Beef, Leg of Lamb and Slow Cooked Pork Shoulder. We especially appreciated the wide variety of condiments provided at each corner of the buffet. Here you will find sauces such as Multigrain and Dijon Mustard, Truffle Red Wine Sauce and more.


Other Western dishes in the spread include Sustainable Barramundi, Vegetable Lasagna, and Baked Spiced Cauliflower served with hummus.


For the Asian spread, you can expect dishes such as Roast Meats, Seafood Fried Rice, Fried Sea Bass with Chopped Chilli and more.


The Dessert Station was quite a spread with cakes such as Strawberry Shortcake and non-bakes like Warm Chocolate Chip Pudding and Durian Penyat. There are also Seasonal Fresh Fruits of Dragon Fruit, Honeydew and more.

Cream Custard with Berries

This Cream Custard with Berries was one of the four Verrine options. The other three were Tropical Citrus, Baileys Tiramisu and Milk Chocolate Cream with Caramel Apple.

Assorted Nonya Kueh

The dessert range continues with Assorted Nonya Kueh and even a Chocolate Fountain. The tiny ang ku kuehs among the Nonya Kueh caught our eye. Make sure to also try their Mango and Strawberry gelatos before leaving - we went back for seconds and thirds!
