Asia Grand Restaurant is located at Odeon Towers and specialises in Chinese Cuisine. They have the best dim-sum with the prawns and scallops so fresh, huge and succulent. Other than the regular fare of dim-sum they also serve many Chinese delights like the Peking Duck and Roast Pork.
we had some elderly visiting from overseas and we used this as an excuse to take the family for dinner. And Asia Grand did not disappoint. The Peking duck was mouth-watering as usual and everyone in the group of 10 really enjoyed what was being served to us
I read that they have no corkage charge. So, enthisiastically, I brought two Bordeaux blends there for dinner. The waitress brought us some thick, round glasses that one could easily mistake for water glasses. I asked for a change, and she came back with two taller ones that looked more like Burgundy glasses this time. I smiled and explained that I needed Bordeuax glasses. She went back and brought the manager/owner out this time. I sensed that he was rather annoyed by now. He informed me that customers there had asked for different glasses for different wines, and had broken too many glasses to the detriment of the restaurant. So, they had stopped serving their 'better glasses'. He reminded me that there is no corkage charge and suggested that I just made do with the Burgundy glasses instead, implying that I should be thankful for it. I was grateful but really, I could not bring myself to pour my Ornellaia or Smith Haut Lafitte into those Burgundy glasses nor the yellowish decanter. In the end, we settled for a S$30 corkage before I got to drink my wines with Scott Weisel Bordeaux glasses. That was how I end up paying corkage at a no corkage outlet. So, bring your own decanters and glasses if you want to avoid the frustrations or annoyance early on at dinners there. Or bring burgundies to suit those round glasses they will most likely serve you, Your cheap Burgundies, that is. Forget the whites, unless you really don't mind any glass being used at all. The food is delicious though.
Brought my mom over here at this place to celebrate her birthday and was not disappointed at all at the level of service and the quality of the food on offer at this Chinese dining place. This place is good and suitable for huge family gatherings and the various Chinese dishes that they have on offer will greatly appeal to the older generation. Once in a while, there will be special promotions (when I was there it was a suckling pig or Peking duck promotion) which will make this place a tad cheaper. This brings me to the sole downside of the place because it can be pretty expensive for the average Singaporean but it is worth it if you are holding celebratory events here.
Our elderly uncle and aunt were visiting from overseas and we used this as an excuse to take the family for dinner. Our group of 10 consisted of teenagers to those in their seventies. And Asia Grand did not disappoint. The Peking duck was mouth-watering as usual. The pork ribs were succulent and juicy while the fish cooked in 2 style satisfied both those who like their fish which is juicy and those who like it fried and crispy. The seafood clay pot was a bit too spicy for hubby and me but the chilli eaters in the group loved it. The chicken cooked in lotus leaf and horfun were alright but not the best in town. The 2 vegetable dishes, one was KaIlan cooked in garlic and the broccoli with scallops were fresh and cooked to perfection. we decided to splurge on the dessert and both the mango pudding and yam paste with ginkgo nuts left us feeling satiated.
