Value for money

Ordered a plate of steamed scallops, a bowl of vegetable soup, Har kow, Siew Mai and a plate of roasted duck.

 

Scallops- It is lousy. Does not taste fresh.

Vegetable soup- it is good.

Har kow- Tasteless

Siew Mai- So So

Roasted Duck- Good. As it is a bit salty, it goes well with my bowl of rice.

The staff are professional and polite.

blechs! yucky!

click here for links on food, and decor!    basically the food was not bad, but it was super cramped, portions were really small, and the roasted meat was ice cold. what's up with that!   food was good though, and came pretty fast, although the service was s***. so yes. not for a hot date. maybe speed dating, you're so close the next table i suppose you could just say hi.  there was beef with really nice mushrooms.  Shioba, roasted pork. crunchy, soft, but ICE COLD! not nice. dun get. tasty, but cold. very wierd. fish slices with cucumber and pine nuts the fish was really soft and tasty! and the pine nuts were cute to eat.   queues very long, so take a number, shop around and come back.

NO prawns or fish in crystal Jade steamboat buffet menu

On 25Feb Saturday; my sis and I had buffet

dinner there.

It is not worth the value of what we paid. All & all; we paid S$70+++

Their service wasn’t great too.

The ingredients severed were very plain; neither

prawns nor fish were found in their menu.

Worst still; we have to pay for so called

their special made soup (S$8 per serving); which most steamboat restaurants would provide without additional charges!

The soups were spicy Szechuan soup &

herbal chicken soup!

After all; crystal Jade is a restaurant;

they are charging restaurant price and serving "such grade" of food.

In fact; I believe any hawker stalls

running steamboat buffet meals too; would serve better food & charge at much lower

price.

Dinner to celebrate my mum's birthday

I was rather disappointed by the standard of the resturant. I had previously visited some other Crystal Jade Kitchen and they were noticeably better. The Sweet and Sour Pork Chop that we ordered were rather hard and tasteless. The flavour were all in the sauce and not in the meat. The fried prawn with almond nuts and wasabi sauce were even worst. It was hard and I could even smell the burnt nuts. This resturant seems to be focusing on their steamboat, I suspect that is the reason why the dishes are compromised.
have fun with the sauces

Steamboat

Had the ala carte steamboat on a Saturday evening. Costing $25 per pax, what we get is 2 soup base (chicken stock and sweet sour base), free flow soy milk and 2 slices of minced peking duck wrapped in egg skin complimentary . Foodwise take note you do not get your usual prawns and mini crabs but you do get your squid and cuttlefish. Food is limited and by our 4th order, we were told a few items are no longer available. Overall did not feel the food served is fresh but for the convenience of eating there since catching a movie upstairs later, we can't complain much. On a side note, the table beside us ordered the full peking duck, it sure looks tempting, maybe can try that instead of the steamboat next time :)

Worst Crystal Jade so far

I had never tried this outlet of Crystal Jade but I had always thought this brand has certain standards so I visited the branch at Plaza Singapura with my family on a Sunday in June 2011 out of convenience.

However this proved to be a big mistake as a simple dinner dragged over 2 hours as we waited for the dishes to arrive. We ordered Egg Yolk Prawns, Mayonaise Squid, Broccoli with crab stick, Egg plant Claypot, Chicken mushroom Claypot, Marinated duck and friend dumplings. While all of the dishes except the Broccoli were very plain tasting therefore not worth the price I feel. We finished all the dishes and waited for the 2 remaining Claypots for at least 45mins by which time we were exhausted already. Around us there were many customers also stretching their neck to be served. Honestly speaking, the service was not bad just that I can see the play is seriously under staffed that you have to wait really long to eat just OK food so I wont visit again. The better Crystal Jades are the ones at Holland V and Causeway point.
