Crystal Jade Steamboat

I have to say that service at Junction 8 Crystal Jade is really not bad at all – they made sure they had enough staff to take care of the customers and they were very nice and professional towards me (I was initially quite pissed with the fact that they didn’t let Belle in early cos they would start counting the two hours once seated!).

The food came really quickly after we sent in the order! By the way the price of this steamboat costs $20.80 (before taxes) per pax on weekdays – I think it’s not a bad price, cos the ingredients are fresh and tasty.

I will definitely go back again for steamboat – although they have a limit of 2 hours, it’s really more than sufficient. I even took little breaks in that 2 hours to chat and rest from the eating (yes it is quite a feat to keep chatting and eating at the same time lol). They start admitting customers for steamboat from 5pm onwards, so if possible, pls go early to ensure seats since reservations aren’t allowed. They have limited allocation for steamboat too.

After a long 45min wait, the meal here spoiled our mood and appetite for my birthday celebration. I really don't understand why people still bother to queue to eat here. The taste sucks. Fish was fishy, only tiny weeny bit of meat (there were only fats) for the pork rib dish. The noodles was extremely bland, no taste at all. The dishes were not nicely presented to us. I think the cze char stalls can do a much much better job in dish presentation. Service was d*** slow and the place was too noisy for a normal conversation. The prices unexactly cheap either. I think I would have a more delectable experience at a kopi-tiam.

Crystal Jade has always been known for their Hong Kong style Cantonese cuisine, that was why Merlion Wayfarer was amused to find this in their menu. Find out what when Merlion Wayfarer reviews it in http://merlionwayfarer.blogspot.sg/2012/08/crystal-jade-kitchen-of-succulent.html

Merlion Wayfarer ordered the Shrimp Dumpling Noodles Soup (????) - which Crystal Jade serves the way it is served in Hong Kong. As usual the noodles didn't live up to the dumplings - being a bit harder in texture compared to the meat-based soup and thick generous dumplings...

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
