Food:

It is pretty nice and good. We had the beef and chicken it was nicely done. The taste isn't too salty or heavy as well. For the price it isn't too bad but I had better I'd say.

Service:

Don't expect too much in terms of their service here. One word. TERRIBLE. We saw on FaceBook it indicated opening hours as 11:30am (so we could have made a mistake but it really wasn't clear), my friend got there first and asked if they were closed for the day (it was a Sunday) and the staff said no but they open at 12pm. She asked what time we could go in and be seated and was told 11:50am they will open doors and we could sit in.

When the rest of us arrived, we waited til 11:50am and was then told we can't go in as they open at 12pm strictly. Worse thing was when we tried to clarify on the opening hours the staff said point blankly no they never open at 11:30am and the FaceBook page definitely doesn't state it. What really annoyed us was the rudeness of the staff. When we told the staff we were told earlier we could sit in at 11:50am though they open at 12pm they started saying no such thing and asked us to go back out.

So am 7 months pregnant and carrying along my 21 month old toddler in the sweltering heat outside the restaurant. Mind you they didn't even offer to place a chair outside for us to sit and wait. My toddler kept wanting to go in and sit and they simply told us to take our toddler out though at thet time it was only 4 mins away from 12pm.

When it was 12pm, they asked how many of us were there, we informed them we had 5 adults and a toddler. They gave us a table for 4 and expected all of us to squeeze round the table. mind you, a toddler's hands will spare the plates no mercy and you will start seeing forks, knives, plates and all strewn on the floor.

When we requested to have another table added on they asked if we were expecting another guest and what time the additional gues will turn up. We looked puzzled and said look we are crowded around a table for 4 and you expect us to enjoy our meals like that? In my mind I was wondering if we are eating in some concentration camp or prison.

They staff then told us if we insist to have the additional table we could have it but they are usually very busy and crowded so if need be they will have to remove the table if they have more customers coming in. Mind you at that time there were plenty of empty tables.

Naturally by this time, that was all we could bear with. So we said thank you for the most horrid service rendered and left the place. We actually ended up having a way better meal that tasted just as amzing and fulfilling with warm and excellent service at a Thai eatery opposite Saveur. And oh, mind you, there's service charge for Saveur. So much for service you have to pay for.

The first experience was so so but this 2nd experience really threw us off so much we will never ever return.

So if you can still stomach food on bad service then go ahead. Definitely not for us.
