When deciding to fine-dine, there is a set of expectations that will kick in: excellence from top to toe, highest standard of quality in every single aspect, uniqueness, style and and and... When all these expectations are met, I'm very ready and willing to pay a price for it, as real quality can never be cheap. And this is where the issue is: the concept of fine dine at low(er) price is a contradiction in itself, just like there will never be a cheap Ferrari. But this is what The Clan tries to offer - fine dine at a lower price. And, as expected, it doesn't work. We had 8 of the total 16 dishes, and not a single one was good, not to speak about excellent. Not only the ingredients were not of fine dine quality, also the preparation wasn't, as the West-Asia fusion went completely wrong. It reminded me at times of a fine dine canteen, with quick dishes that seem fine dine, but are not. Very disappointing, and clearly not to be recommended when wanting a real fine dine experience.
