Compare with Mai Thai, Tom yum is more spicy and ingredients less fresh. The soup won't make you thirsty. The first time I tried wano more authentic. You forgot to put shrimp in the pomelo salad but did not do anything when I feedback during my 3rd visit there. Should be my last :)
It was my first time dining at Bangkok Jam (Great World City) last night and it would most probably be my last.
The food served at Bangkok Jam was average at best - the Clear Tom Yum was too salty, although the mains we had (Egg Noodles with Crab Meat, Prawns & Bacon as well as the Spaghetti with Prawns in Coconut) were better in taste.
The main turn-off was the service from the staff - it seems like everyone was having an off-day. Took around 6mins (from the time the staff acknowledged us) before someone came round to take our order.
The worst was when we wanted to settle the bill. Well, the bill came fast enough but the manager/supervisor (I assumed so, as he was in black) took his own sweet time in processing the transaction. He seemed more pre-occupied with chit-chatting than doing what he was supposed to. After 8mins (from the time I gave my credit card), I decided to walk over to the counter and sign the bill. No apology or "thank you" was even given.
Dead black ant in my cup of water. Understandable, I guess... Asked for replacement. Received second cup of water. The problem... Another dead black ant but smaller. Err... No apologies, not a single word from the same waiter.?. Unfriendly, no eye contact, no smile, and lack basic people skills... BEWARE!
Whilst the food is avceptabke at Bangkok Jam, I have experienced a deteriorating rate of customer service across all Bangkok Jam chains. My last two dining experience at Wheelock and at Greatworld have left me wondering if service staff choose to not look at customers or attend to needs in the hope that some would just walk away? Often, orders have been forgotten. It happened to me at Wheelock and to my colleague at Greatworld. The chain has made good location choices but if it continues with its lack of service, it will not have long term customers.

Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
