I went to tunglok heen last Sunday to celebrate my parents birthday. The food was good. The service was not slow as what others have mentioned here. I bought along the cake. The staffs sang birthday song together with us. It was a pleasant surprise. Will visit again. Good job!

Average food, horrible service

Food is only average. Nothing to rave about. Service is really bad.    When I ordered the food I told waiter specifically to serve my son's fried hor fan first, but after serving almost 4 dishes, my son's fried hor fan was still not served. We have to remind the waiter twice before the Hor fan came.    We ordered quite a few dishes and when we thought that we were done with eating and called for the bill, they told us there is one more dish that was yet to be served. And when we got our bill, the pig trotters that we asked to be packed since we were already full was still in the kitchen!!!! They did not even bother to apologise nor make any attempt to remedy the situation. I still needed to ask the waitress if they were having card discount before she unwillingly told us abt the 20% discount given for Amex and DBS cardholder for spending above $300 on à la carte without beverage included.    Some fine dining it was!!! It seems like the type that is geared at the tourist visiting RWS or Sentosa.    Don't think I would ever go back there again!!! I think tourists have better choices at the many other restaurants that they can choose from RWS.

SuSur Lee, sure?

For more details and pictures, please visit: http://cheesemafia.blogspot.sg/2012/10/chinois-by-susur-lee-hotel-michael-rws.html A restaurant by a celebrity Chef, SuSur Lee, Chinois is the Chef's first restaurant outside North America. The restaurant had been awarded with a number of accolades and we had expectations on the restaurant.We had a private room, but the room was very small and cramped and could barely fit ten people. The mid-range Triumph Menu features a six-course meal at $100 per person. Service was incredibly slow, and the restaurant seemed understaffed. We had to wait for about half an hour before the first course arrived. The chef sent a complementary appetizer dish of cucumbers with sambal chili for the long wait. We were all rather impressed when the first dish, the Char-grilled Japanese Pork Tenderloin with homemade Pita bread in Sesame Peanut Sauce, arrived at the table. The presentation was interesting and visually wonderful. The pita bread was sesame black and a fatty piece of Japanese Pork Tenderloin was placed at the centre with a colourful array of condiments. After the oohs and aahs, we rolled the wrap and consumed it like a roll. The Baked Marinated Cod in Homemade Spicy Sauce was heavily seasoned and complemented the deep fried aubergine stack that it was resting on. My only grouse was that the portions were too small.We were disappointed when the dish arrived. The Sauteed Tiger Prawn with Egg White and Dark Vinegar reduction was as average as it looks. There was nothing outstanding or interesting about the dish, and it elements of the dish were clumsily put together to create the dish. The Crabmeat Fried Rice with Silver Fish X.O. sauce and Crispy rice was excellent. We loved how the crispy rice added an extra crunch to the grainy beads of rice. The Chinois Delight comprises of Chilled cream of Mango Sago with Pomelo, Chilled Mango Custard with Lime Caramel, Fresh Mango Sorbet. We were very put off with the below average trio of desserts. It was evident that not much thought was put into the dish and I could not finish the dish, despite being a huge dessert lover. The menus were sloppily planned with little finesse and poor execution. Service was slow and we had to chase the staff for each course. If you are looking for top-grade food by well-known chefs, you'd be better some place else.

Back for more

As luck would have it, we found ourselves at RWS once again and decided to drop by Chinois for some quiet time (and food!) on a Saturday afternoon. It was probably one of the few places that wasn't jam packed with visitors and we were (un)lucky to snag a window seat (do know that your back is clearly visible from the outside of the restaurant if you sit next to the window).

Kurobuta Pork Rib with Vinaigrette - We started off with the customary roast pork dish and I must say that some pieces were a little too fatty for comfort this time round. I liked the crisp skin and moderate quantity of salt though.

Oven-baked “San Xian” Gyozas with White Wine Cream Cheese Sauce (????????) - I'm no big fan of gyoza so naturally I didn't quite take to this dish, although I must admit that it was quite different from what I had expected. The gyoza was soft and dipped into a concoction of cheese and tomato sauce. And honestly, that was all I tasted. Not a bad combination I must say... with bread that is.

Tofu with Crab Meat - This was a simple yet delicious dish. The tofu was mildly savoury and silky, drenched in a not too starchy gravy that boasted copious amounts of shredded crab meat and roe. And then there are the obligatory stalks of vegetable of course.

Braised Boston Lobster with Homemade Noodles - At the time of my visit, Chinois had a promotion for this dish as well as a couple of their signature dishes going at only $18++ - apparently a "very good deal" as our waitress candidly put forth. And I took her word for it. The truth be told, the noodles were a little too sweet (from the black sauce) for my liking. That aside, I appreciated the springy texture of the noodles and the fresh (and generous!) serving of fresh lobster.

Ramen with Live Prawn and Minced Meat Sauce - This was essentially ??? but with the addition of prawns. The noodles were springy while the accompanying meat sauce had a tinge of spice in it, making for a rather appetising eat. And not to forget about the huge duo of fresh, crunchy prawns that straddled both ends of the noodle roll. Simple yet satisfying.

After a 50% discount, the bill for lunch came to a very manageable $65 for 2, inclusive of drinks. Food quality was decent and ambience, relatively good. Service, though good, could be a little less uptight though, seeing that RWS is a family destination after all? One question though. What's the point of a smart casual dress code when lots of people still turn up in shorts and flip flops?

My first time dining in a Chinese fine dining restaurant, super excited XD. Chinois, by celebrity chef Susur Lee, is part of the Tung Luk group. The décor is stylish, zen and elegant.

We had:

Chinois amuse bouche: Crispy fried mushroom dumpling with wasabi mayo sauce. Pan fried carrot cake with preserved meat. Steamed prawn siew mai with black truffle. Instead of the usual flour “skin”, it was replaced with the truffle. I dislike Siew Mai to the MAX. Dad loves dim sum and I had to eat Siew Mai every week when I was younger. But Chinois Siew Mai was yummy, thanks to the truffle and fresh prawn.

Braised shark’s fin with freshly peeled crab meat in hot and sour soup. I usually don’t like hot and sour soup but this was fantastic and the flavors balanced very well, I was craving for more.

Braised deep sea fish fillet with sauteed eggplants served with spicy bean paste. The fish was fresh and cooked to perfection, firm enough to grip with chopsticks and yet so soft in the mouth. Eggplant and vegetables were impressive too.

Pan fried egg noodles with king prawn and white egg

I felt this dish was average,it was nice but lacked that special touch that which the first 3 courses and dessert had.

Chilled home made soya pudding with sesame. The pudding was soooooo soft and silky and the sesame sauce complemented the soya pudding perfectly.

Left Chinois feeling pleased and satisfied, both with the food and service.
