Tóng Lè Private Dining is one of the only two restaurants in Singapore that offers a dining experience in a revolving tower. With its offering of a panoramic tour of the Marina Bay area while seated in the comfort of chic, dark wood furniture, expect glimpses of the Marina Bay waterfront and possibly your office if you work around Raffles Place, all from your table! We even had the luxury of watching the Marina Bay Laser Show from our table at 8pm which featured spectacular light and water displays!

It was quite an unconventional way to celebrate Valentine's Day at a Chinese restaurant but 14 February this year coincides with the last day of Chinese New Year, also known as 元宵节. While it is typically a day for reunion with families, this particular day is celebrated as the Chinese Valentine's Day in Hong Kong.

The overall dining experience in a revolving restaurant and the fine quality food served complemented with dedicated service made this meal esepcially memorable as we celebrated our sixth Valentine's Day together!

On the restaurant, if you are wondering about the speed the restaurant revolves, fret not because one complete oscillation would take approximately two hours which gives you ample quality time with your dining companions!

The restaurant is divided into two separate levels, 8 and 10 with the former having karaoke facilities for diners. We were given a table on level 10 and you could experience the exclusivity right from the moment we stepped in as we were warmly greeted and ushered into a private lift to the 10th floor. This reminds us of our dining experience at Fook Lam Moon in Hong Kong. While Fook Lam Moon accepts walk-in customers, having a meal at Tóng Lè Private Dining requires advance reservations.

Offering only set menus, each had a really meaningful and traditional meaning from 惜春, 锦绣 to 长乐.

Prosperity yellow tail and tuna 'Yu Sheng'
We had countless yusheng this year but seeing that this was the last lohei for the year, could it be the best?

The serving of yellowtail and tuna was generous and thickly sliced too, which suited my preference. The designated butler who served the dish recited the words of blessing in a seasoned fashion and with when he was done, it was the usual messy affair for us!

While sweet plum sauce remained the base sweetener for this classic dish, the homemade sauce was well balanced with the acidity of the fresh passion fruit which paired the lime juice to give the tang. The texture was largely similar to the one tried at Park Palace, which ingeniously introduced crispy vermicelli to give a nice crispy crunch to each mouthful. We particularly loved the glazed cashews that made all the difference. The fresh vegetables were finely sliced and with overall it was presented elegantly against the backdrop of a beautiful sunset.

Was looking forward to having a great meal.

Got lost trying to find this tower. Should have parked at Lobby B. The service staff is good. They will welcome you from the first floor al the way till you reach your room. This place is circular. There are a few VIP rooms and some common seating.

The food is really so-so. Soup is great but everything else is mediocre. Some weird combination for dessert. Sorbet is extremely sweet.

Foie Gras was undercooked. Not expecting this from a such a restaurant.

The guy recommending wines likes to recommend expensive wines. Very long winded. He will tell you he knows the maker etc. Well... good to know.

Overall... Service is the only saving grace of this place.

I get better service in my local hawker centre. Nice venue but definitely not worth the cost.
