|Vegetarian Rice and Curry Set at Buddha Tooth Relic Temple Chinatown Singapore|
|Vegetarian Food for Charity at Buddha Tooth Relic Temple Chinatown Singapore|
The closing time of 3.00pm is the time when the staff can be seen counting their cash. The food gets all over by 2.30pm and some of the curries finish by 1.00pm. So here, one who arrives early gets to eat the best. The curries are carefully rotated, they always keep a stir-fry, a dry-spicy mix, and a curry with gravy in it. There are healthier options like cabbage or other seasonal veggies too. At first you need to choose between rice or noodles (vermicelli), and then the staff at the counter will put some rice/noodles in a plate and show it to you if you are happy with the quantity of the rice or noodles. When you OK it, you get to choose any three curries.

|Vegetarian Buffet Counter at Buddha Tooth Relic Temple Chinatown Singapore|
Everything here is on "Self-Service" basis. You pay at the buffet counter when your food is handed over to you. The dining hall is huge and has a plenty of tables so every one can eat at leisure. After finishing the meal, you need to carry your plate and the cutlery to the dish collection point. There are separate wash rooms for gents and ladies.
The place is very popular among locals. Some tourists come here too but I hope that number will increase. I strongly suggest two things for the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, having a vegetarian meal at this place, and buying an "Eight-Auspicious Emblem Gold Coin" from the temple shop.
