value for money for Western food!

First time visit to Hot Tomato at Somerset 313. Service was quick; we were seated and made our orders within 10 minutes, and the soup and drinks came within the next 5 minutes. Main courses came about 5 minutes later. Within 20 minutes from the time we stepped into the restaurant, we had piping hot soup and main courses set in front of us! Main courses ordered were Carbonara ($9.90) and Sirloin Steak (160gms) ($11.90), both topped up with drink and soup sets ($2.50 only between 11AM-2PM). Carbonara came as a big portion, with generous helping of ham and bacon pieces. Cream base was smooth and well-flavored. Sirloin steak came with garden salad and a helping of aglio olio pasta. (Tomato for the garden salad a bit too green.) Value for money for a big piece of steak! Sadly, the steak was a bit charred on one side. Pasta is great, too! Oh. Soup of the day was Tomato soup. Not the usual bland and thin kind that you may get at similar restaurant. Tomato soup is thick and strong. As for the lime juices that we had, no complaints either. Definitely had a better experience at this outlet, compared to my previous visit at NEX. Extra note on promotions:
11AM to 2PM will be $2.50 for drink + soup set top up for main course. Happy Hours 3PM to 530PM will get you 20% off main course. Both promotions are for weekdays only.

Tells their customers to finish quickly

I went to Hot Tomato with two of my friends at around 6pm, so there wasn't a queue yet. My friends and I ordered our food and drinks which were served promptly. The food was pretty good and during our meal a queue formed outside. A waiter came to take our plates away but also said "There's a long queue outside so can you finish soon?" then he brought us the bill. Not only did I not ask for the bill, I hadn't even finished my drink. How rude! At that point I was thinking, "What about the three women sitting across us? They finished eating as we were seated, and I'm a slow eater so they were there for really long." Perhaps it was because they thought it would be easier to chase out 3 teenage girls than 3 adult women. I didn't push it because it wasn't such a big deal but for a cafe that charges 10% service charge, their service is ridiculous!

Service sucks !

the service sucks !!!! its the worst experience from hot tomato ! The the food came so long and they even gave others who came later. I even ask them why it's taking so long and she didnt even give me any explanation or come back with my food ! The worst part is ! They even mix up the order for me and my friend. everything is so much better at the branch at nex

Not too bad

Walked around the shopping mall but don't know what to eat.  Tried this resturant for the first time.  I ordered the oven baked chicken and my hubby order the garlic prawn pasta.  The prawn was kind of small for the price we paid I think.  But the oven baked chicken was like half the chicken and it tasted good.  Foods served wasn't very fast but still acceptable.  But the bill was quite slow as I don't see any pple making payment.  But the staff service was fast when I requested for chilli and other stuffs.  Overall still good experience.
yummy!!

A yummy assignment runaway

Promptly seated upon arrival, my friend and I quickly looked through the menu because we were both starving.

After deciding on the menu, my friend accidentally noticed the 20% discount offer at the back of the menu list, from 15.00-17.30 pm.

A quick look to the watch and we had 3 minutes left!

The waitress was quick and friendly to serve us on that rushed minutes and she granted us the 20% discount.

Both of us ordered grilled prawn and steak with pasta, and the taste was marvellous!

Serving was not too big, steak and prawn was grilled well-done to perfection - loved it.

Even the simple salad (leaves and dressing) tasted great!!

Will definitely come back for more.
