A variety of choices for you to choose. The restaurant does brisk business. Though so, staff are very efficient. Your food comes within minutes. Asian Kitchen has quotes on the wall outside, "Making Sense of the Asian Diet". Located at Raffles, Chopsticks specializes in Asian cuisines.
The Asian Kitchen, notably the one in the underground pass within Raffles Place MRT, provides a sit-down, but "fast-food" type service. The restaurant does little things like clearing your plates as fast as possible, while taking their time to provide water refills, in order to clear you out as fast possible. Since most people eat lunch from noon onwards, they provide a 10% discount to the total bill if you arrive prior to 11:45am, an initiative they call the "Early Bird" special. They also provide a loyalty card program that credits your membership card with 10% of your food bill. You have one calendar year to use the card, and the credits within it.
However, what isn't stipulated in the terms and conditions of the loyalty card program is that it can't be used in conjunction with the "Early Bird" special. That means, neither credit or, most notably, debit can be used with the "Early Bird" special. So if you wanted to use the amount of money within your card, you have to forfeit the 10% discount (assuming you qualify for it by arriving early). Or you pay the full amount of the bill, but get 10% credited to the card.
The loyalty card program is not free. This complete lack of integrity and disdain for the customer should not be rewarded. Do not subscribe to the loyalty card program.
Caveat emptor. Buyer beware.
I went to the original place at citylink, till it has shifted to this new place. The dishes were alright for us to have our dinner at there. Other than that, its more towards of chinese food, rather fusion food that I am expecting.
What have you doing to welcome the upcoming Lunar New Year?
My colleagues have decided to dine at Chopsticks by The Asian Kitchen nearby Raffles Place MRT to celebrate the Lunar New Year as our restrictive lunch time was only 1 hour.
