Amaya Food Gallery

Amari Watergate Hotel's main buffet restaurant modelled on a classic Asian hawker market with a gourmet twist. International and themed food stations include dietary labels for each dish, making it easy to spot spice levels and protein sources like seafood, chicken, or beef - very handy for veggies and vegans!

Try a cook-to-order pad Thai from the Thai station, a slice of pizza from the Italian stall, oysters from the international seafood market, or a classic butter chicken from the Indian station. Other themed stations include Chinese, Western, sushi, salads, and desserts.

One item not to be missed is classic Thai dessert "nam kang sai", a bed of shaved ice topped with your choice of syrups and toppings. Some toppings, like nuts, you'd expect to see on a dessert while others, like corn, may take some getting used to! One thing's for sure, Amaya Food Gallery is a restaurant you won't leave the slightest bit hungry!
