Food is mediocre if not under par. We ordered Cheezy Bombs (which was good), turkey ham pasta (which was alright, the pasta in itself was not al dente) and Sausage love pizza (which didn't taste anything... crust wasn't home made too).
But beyond mediocrity, what piqued me and my friends the most was the horrible service we received from this restaurant. After an exhausting day of work and attending a gig at Chjimes, my friends and I walked all the way to Haji Lane to grab a late dinner. If we were fussy and demanding of five star service, we would have stayed in Chjimes. We decided to go for I AM... because it was the first restaurant you'll see at the end of Haji Lane and we found 2 empty tables, one was clean and one where diners had just left. Since there was no queue in sight nor a sign that said, "PLEASE WAIT TO BE SEATED," we settled in and chose the table where it had to be cleaned because there was more breeze we didn't mind that it was dirty and would gladly wait for it to be cleaned. Until a guy in a hat (who I'm guessing is the manager) came and rudely told us, "Um, can you please wait to be seated?" We didn't mind to be told to get up and wait, it was the tone in his voice that irked us. Literally 2 second from standing in their supposed "queue" (which was non-existent and had no proper label; I mean how are we supposed to know we're supposed to wait there?), he let us sit. 2 seconds. What difference did it make if we just sat there while they cleaned? Ten minutes into sitting in, I saw a British dude settled in next to us without waiting in the queue, hat-guy entertained him cheerfully. Anyway, my friends and I ordered the food for sharing. As soon as I finished my plate, other staff members were eager to pick it up and go, I had to tell them twice that I wasn't finished yet; and while my friends and I enjoyed chatting up about our busy week, hat-guy comes in and serves us our bill. While my friends and I split our bill he comes again and stands watching us count our money. I told him, "Wait, we're not yet finished," to which he rudely replies, "I didn't say anything," then leaves. We were very tempted to dispute the service charge as service was horrendous. I don't really do food reviews except their vexing service definitely left a bad taste in our mouth.
