Always a wonderful experience

Always one of my very favorite tea salons because of the posh ambience, soothing World music, good service and exquisite table / tea ware - on top of great selection of teas (more than 800!), food and snacks, I alternate between the outlets at Ion Orchard and Marina Bay Sands.

While I miss the sandwiches with the french toast that we had some years back, I don't mind their current sandwiches as well. The afternoon set of finger sandwiches is at SGD$24.00 for 3 types of sandwiches, and we chose the Cucumber Mayo, Chicken Breast and Smoked Salmon ones. The crust is crispy, the bread is tender, and the ingredients are tasty.

I also tried the Apricot Cod (SGD$28.00), one of my currently favoritest fish done right - tender yet bouncy in its freshness, made crispy by the sprinkling of seaweed / sesame atop the dish. The slightly-sour flavor of the apricot sauce was a lovely accompaniment; and the mashed potato by the side was divine.

The Macaroons (SGD$2.00 each) are lovely as well, with crispy but soft biscuit coating and rich tea-infused creams. This time, we had the Rose and Chocolate ones.

Value for money set meal

For ladies that lunch, The Wellness Group (TWG) is a heavenly spot. Many are familiar with this tea room being a popular afternoon tea destination, but did you know they offer excellant value for money set lunch and dinner as well?

I recommend checking out the dessert trolley before taking a seat. The set menu includes either a specially prepared dessert, or you can opt for a selection from the dessert trolley.

There’s only one choice for main course and today its Roasted Chicken leg coated with Asian spices,  Taiping Houkui infused butter rice and French Beans. It’s not easy for a classic chicken dish to go wrong, but neither is it easy to conjure one that exceeds expectations. With succulent and juicy meat within, it was well roasted with skill. The skin had a nice crisps and is beautifully flavorsome. The rice beneath was a tad hard for my liking, but the buttery goodness made up for it.

Accompanying the main course were homemade spicy dip and an irresistible fluffy bun. A pot of tea of your choice is included in the set lunch menu; I had my usual fragrant Vanilla Bourbon tea.

We noticed another couple enjoying a lavish blue cake and hence choose it over the special dessert of the day. The Blueberry and White Chocolate cake with macarons arrived on a chilled plate. Blueberries scattered amongst the moist sponge cake gave bursts of sweetness and texture. My only complain? The white chocolate was not prominent because it was overwhelmed by too much cream.
It’s always a pleasure to find a place like TWG, where you are assured a warm welcome and attentive service. The set menu is available on weekdays for both lunch and dinner. A main course and tea will set you back $29++ while a main course, tea and dessert cost $35++.

Recommended for the Great Food and Tea but not the Service!

I must say the food quality here is quite high, not to mention the tea as well.. Definitely worth a try... But they must really improve in their service level. If the service is bad here, we might as well go to hotels, pay the same amount of $$ but receive much better service than here.    As we were there very early with just less than 4 tables, the service was still quite bad. We have finished our meal for quite some time and expect the staff to come and clear our table but the staff just stand there and look around, saw our table but still didn't bother to come and clear the plates. I still have to ask him to come and clear and serve us our dessert. This kind of service shouldn't be happened at such a luxury place at TWG....

Terrible service

Visited TWG this week for the first time and also the last time. Expected a good experience to celebrate a certain milestone with my friend, instead I was leaving highly dissapointed and pissed.

The good thing - location, food was OK too (little portion, but I guess that's fine for these restaurants). Dessert was exceptional.

Epic fail - service.
1 - we arrived and got seated. Had to wait around 5 minutes to get the menu. It should be noted that the restaurant was half-empty with only few tables occupied and there were around 4-5 people on the service. Our impatient looks were ignored. Some of the people who arrived LATER got their menu instantly. Why?
2 - I ordered Ice tea with a special request for only 1-2 ice cubes. The waiter seemed to understand but brought tea full of ice.
3 - after finishing the main dish, we were supposed to get a dessert. It wasn't coming for a while. After my enquiry (again, we had to wait some time before somebody noticed), the waiter who got the question talked to his colleague who gave a "w** does this guy want?" look. And then one more time. When I finally got the dessert from the "looky" guy, he didn't say a word (which reminds me that none of the dishes actually got any introduction or a nice word).
4 - the biggest problem is the inconsistency in the service. Some of the tables got almost constant attention from some of the staff, while we were being ignored for most of the time. Why? It made us feel like we're something less.

It's a shame that this food doesn't have a corresponding level of service. Never ever.

First Visit. Never going again.

Went to Marina Bays Sands (On The Bridge) on 02/11/13 (Saturday) around 10pm. When are seated down we were browsing through the menu as we never been to TWG before the waiter kept standing behind us and looking waiting for us to order which makes us quite stress. After deciding we decided to order the pastries and its not stated that the price is for individual item thus we thought is a set menu. We told the Chinese looking waiter wearing specs that we want to order that and he suddenly raised his voice and said "the total is $45 for all that items" we was like huh? We thought its a set and you need not raise your voice till all the customers turn and look at us, you can just tell us. Its not as though we could not afford it. We felt so embarrassed & humiliated. I felt like throwing my credit card in his face! In the end we ordered a creme brulee ($12.90) for 2 pathetic small brulee, 4 macaroons which taste yucky and just sweet. ($8.00), 1 Banana crepe ($12.90), 3 pots of tea as we cannot share 1 pot we must order 1 pot each ($38.70). They asked us to pay the bill first as they are closing at 11pm but when we asked them they say they close at 11.30pm and as we are paying the bill they still serve new customers in...Total Bill when it arrived we were quite shock as it comes up to near $100. Totally not worth it. Tea was quite bland and food was totally bad. Service was so so only. Will not ever visit them again.
