OK, would go again

I would go again but it is nothing to write home about.  It was hard to get the attention of any members of staff, but the drinks were fine.

Hard to be overenthusiastic, but not a bad experience by any means.  A nice looking bar with a fun, relaxed and open feel - if in the area I'd drop in again for sure.

Just went to eM by the river, 1 Nanson road, for lunch with my pregnant wife and her two friends. When we reached, we asked for a table in the cafe where it is shaded. However, the manager told us that we cannot sit there. Instead, we only have two choices, one table under the sun or a tall table with bar stools under the shade. We chose the latter and my PREGNANT wife had to climb up the bar stool. The cafe was never full at any point in time. However, when we left, we saw a Caucasian couple sitting in the cafe under the shade, the exact same seats that we asked for and told that it was not available! 

I went to question the manager and he said that the outdoor seating is full ,which obviously is not, so the Caucasian couple can sit inside. Preferential treatment? You decide. What I do know is that they didn't even bother to be flexible to cater to someone in need, like my pregnant wife.

If you search online, you will find many negative comments about the cafe. I am never going back there and hope to inform all my friends about the horrible service there.
