recommends this place.
Besides being a great place for casual meals, I have to say that Goldleaf is also an excellent place for special occasions. I celebrated my mother's 60th birthday at this restaurant and the lady boss really went out of her way to ensure all my needs were met, including my requests for off the menu dishes. My guests were very impressed with the meal and really enjoyed themselves.
Many of my friends who have tried this restaurant on my commendation have given me good feedback. I definitely have no hesitations recommending this place to anyone.
: chye poh omelette, three cup chicken, fried rice with silver fish
I also recommend this place for:
After Work, Birthdays, Business Dining, Children/Family, Dinner, Hidden Find, Large Groups, Large Groups/Gathering, Lunch, Parties, Relaxed, Supper, Vegetarians
The food is generally okay. Nothing to shout about.
But after my first visit, i read the review below talking about overcharging. So on my 2nd visit, i inspected the receipt carefully.
As there were only 2 of us, i specifically requested for small servings for the 4 dishes ordered. Then the fish w bittergourd came and the serving is huge. I remembered the review below about the lady boss forcing the big size dishes on the patrons. I told my companion that if they pull the same stunt on us, i will refuse to pay the diff. I recalled the small was $12 and the large was $16.
Then the moment of truth. Saw that they charged $14 for the fish. I confronted them on it but there was no sincere apology. But they had no choice but to revise the payment.
While the diff is only $2++, i think a few bucks here and a few bucks there makes a diff. I totally despise dishonest people even if the food is fantastic. However if after reading this review and u still feel like trying them out, by all means. But u do need to check your bill carefully before payment.
does not recommend this place.
Went to Goldleaf after reading some decent reviews on the place, and since we'd had a heavy lunch, decided to have a light porridge dinner.
The 3 of us ordered 3 dishes (Chye Poh Omelette, Sliced Fish with Bittergourd and a veg) to go with our porridge, and the lady boss tried to get us to order more, but we explained to her that we just wanted a light dinner.
After the second dish came, we realised that it was a much larger size and tried to clarify with the lady boss, telling her that we had wanted the 'small' size. She curtly replied that she would give us a discount and quickly left, without making any changes to our last dish. Needless to say, we couldn't finish the food. The food itself was so-so, nothing special.
When the bill finally came, we realised we were charged more for one dish as compared to the price that was listed in the menu (so please check when you're there!), and we got a discount that only covered the service charge. We were paying about 30% more than what we originally would have paid. We tried to speak with the lady boss but she ignored us and just gave us another 10% off, though it still barely covered the difference.
All in all, we paid more than we would have for food that went to waste. It was a real pity.
