Ambush is a quaint little place that specializes in European cuisine. With commendable service and quality food that is good for value. Ambush serves pasta so truly worth it, be it in terms of the taste, texture or quantity.

Good service and nice ambience

Standards have dropped over the years. Food does not come piping hot sometimes and taste is compromised. Portion not exactly big, perhaps good if you have a small appetite. However, service is really good at most of the outlets and ambience is nice, great for gatherings.

Terrible food, terrible service. Was quite grumpy that evening and wanted to enjoy a good meal along with good service to cheer me up and end the day on a good note. This restaurant called "Ambush" caught our attention. It looked like it had a nice and cozy environment from the outside, and had the slogan "Fast Casual European Dining". It looked and sounded appealing, so we decided to go for it. At the entrance, we were 'greeted' by an attendant who didn't seem to acknowledge our existence, and even had the cheek to have a casual convo with another employee while we were left hanging. We shrugged it off and tried to look past it cuz we were hungry. As we sat down, the first thing that came to mind was that the food had a high price tag. But we figured that the service, environment and the food itself would be worth it. Boy were we wrong... After we made up our minds as to what we wanted (i ordered a salmon fillet spaghetti in thai basil sauce that was 14 bucks, while my friend ordered squid ink spaghetti for 13), we tried to get the attention of an employee to take our order for what seemed like eternity. There were several times where we had made eye contact with the waitress/waiters with our hands up high, and they simply ignored us and walked away as if they didnt see us. When we finally got a waiters attention, he took our orders hastily, as if he was rushing off somewhere. At this point of time, we figured that the food should do the price tag justice. When the food arrived, it was shoved in our face, clumsily placed on the table, and yet again seemed like she was rushing off somewhere. The food was lukewarm, tasteless, portions were small and my salmon fillet was dry and hard.

I was served very very burnt paella. I have been to spain a number of times and i was expecting a singaporeanized paella but this was just a burnt paella. The paella had a char burnt bottom about 0.5 cm thick.

Now, I know my paella decently well, the socarat(burnt bottom) is supposed to be subtle and not over powerin, and its supposed to be the best part. But this was burnt to a crisp.

The service staff who addressed my concent just brushed it aside and was indifferent, saying that it was supposed to be like that. 

The only positive thing was that the rosti was half decent

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.

Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned

Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
