There are a few Muslim colleagues at the Clifford Centre branch. They googled for Muslim buffet and found 21 On Rajah. There is no apparent reason for this company dinner but I am happy that I get to try out a new restaurant without having to pay.
I like the ceiling decoration with black bird cages, giving the restaurant a modern and sophisticated feel.
Chocolate Fondue Counter
U.S Angus Beef Rib-Eye With Herb Jus is not too bad, the beef is roasted till tender but the herb jus is rather bland and doesn’t compliment the beef very well.
Seafood Fried Rice is very normal and not something I would expect at a Mediterranean buffet. I think paella rice would be more appropriate and interesting.
Spicy Seafood In Tomato Sauce tastes rather bland. Some lemon juice might help to spice things up a little.
I did not try the Vegetable Spring Roll With Sweet Chilli Sauce because I didn’t feel like eating fried food.
Chicken Lasagna is one of the better dishes. The lasagna is creamy and cheesy and the tender chicken pieces taste so good.
Ee-Fu Noodles With Leeks And Mushroom is more Chinese than Mediterrananean. A good classic pasta such as aglio olio might be more appropriate.
Roasted Root Vegetable is not bad but it can be more fragrant.
Sauteed Asparagus With Garlic is a refreshing dish which uses asparagus, a classic ingredient in Mediterranean cuisine.
21 On Rajah is supposed to be a halal Mediterranean buffet, but many of the dishes are not Mediterranean. I feel a little cheated.
The food selection is rather limited such that I stopped after just one round. The sushi and seafood are alright, but the rest of the cooked foods are below average.
The only redeeming thing about this halal buffet are the desserts which are surprisingly tasty. You can never go wrong with a good chocolate fondue and the durian puree is awesome.
