Going to come back for the oysters.

Ok I exaggerate, but seriously the oysters are really really fresh and creamy and I as I type I hope I can go back for more.

I can't say the same for the fish - I didn't think the fish - both pan seared and fried were amazing so the next time i return it would only be for the oysters.

The food and entire experience is so bad that I wanna cry.

If you like ABSOLUTELY BLAND AND TASTELESS FISH & CHIPS, this is your place. Seriously. Its totally like eating a piece of fried moist paper. It's so bad that i'm sitting in the restaurant right now, typing this because my tastebuds are so offended. 
First of all, the crab cakes is mostly made of potatoes and all I could taste is the cumin. Who the hell adds cumin to crab?? or anything seafood for that matter. this dish ought to be shot. It's only acceptable if renamed to cumin cakes. 

Then came the jumbo prawns. Nothing special and really expensive at close to $50. Sashimi were normal. 

All these are are still acceptable since they are not offensive. 

But the fish and chips totally screwed the evening  big time. As mentioned, it's totally devoid of any flavours and taste. Why would any respectable restaurant serve a dish with no flavours? I think white rice has more flavours than what I just put into my mouth. My fish was Atlantic cod. So we thought maybe it's the nature of the fish. But came the fish and chips made from Pike. It's the same case for borh dishes. I'm so angry with myself right now. For ignoring the previous reviews and for even deciding to venture out and try something new. My total bill for 3pax added up to a whopping $192. That's a horrendous figure for a meal that taste so terribly wrong. 

My favorite item today is the small mesclun side salad served with the main dishes. The raspberry vinaigrette was the only thing the palette enjoyed. 

Oh and in the beginning, I asked a server if our main dishes come with side dishes, he has the audacity to tell me that he doesn't know and he did not attempt to find out or answer me. That is really unacceptable.

Eventually, the only decent person in the restaurant, the floor manager, gave us a discount. Honestly he made the experience less of a nightmare. While that soothe my heartache a little, it did nothing for my ruined mood and evening and ruined dinner. I had to endure S***** food in my stomach for the rest of the evening while feeling totally unsatiated. 

The chef ought to be shot. period.

Mediocre at best

Overpriced for the standard of food. I'd be okay with it if it were $10-15 per person. Sashimi was so-so, not disastrous, but not tasty either. Fish of the day was also just 'cooked', no sparks, no excitement. Fries (chips) was over fried, not edible.

Sooo Bad, don't order the specials. in fact don't even bother visiting

I came here on a date and i was really really dissappointed by the quality of the food and service. My whole meal was :

1) Tasteless
2) Misleading
3) Expensive
4) Boring

I ordered a fish and it was lightly pan seared and was served over some veggies 
it was so boring, a 10 year old could do it

The fish was not much fresher than if i'd purchased it from NTUC

The waiters were very rude and very annoying, constly buzzing about and not being attentive.

Dont bother Going
