Colony itself is a sprawling restaurant on the ground floor, organised like a maze of delights: the mouth-watering desserts to the Japanese section, the cheeses and cold cuts, to the hidden gems at the back: Italian, Indian and Singaporean.
The set-up is light and airy, with meticulously laid tables. Gold pillars are bright and elegant, interspersed with photographs that make the place homey.
Mosey on down to the pastas where the dishes are prepared to your preference upon order; or to the Rotisserie section where you have whole or roasted chicken on rice. The Indian selection is as delectable as it looks, and worth a try. The desserts are as sumptuous as the rest, and you can never go worth with the black forest.
Some dishes remain constant throughout but the wok-fried black pepper crab, another signature, is only available for dinner. The wagyu beef wellington and truffle sauce is a must try during the Sunday Champagne Brunch while the “Upper Crust” muffin with cookie top is a breakfast favourite.
Colony’s wine list reads like an encyclopedia. You’ll find (mostly) everything from Italy, Spain, France, Argentina, Germany to California, Australia and New Zealand. The German Reisling is crisp with fruity undertones, perfect for seafood and the cheese spread. The Argentinian Malbec, on the other hand, is more full-blooded and pairs well with the meats.
Servers are chatty and friendly, and quite knowledgeable about the menu and the architecture.
Setting and the food are well worth the price, which is above average.
