Satisfying Chinese Buffet

ln terms of ambience, value and quality of food, it easily got into my top 10 list of Chinese alacarte buffets. The price I must say, it's definitely worth it. includes 3 dishes that can only be ordered once - chili crab, sharks fin soup & Peking duck. we went as a grp of 9 and they gave the portion just nice imo. not too lil or too much! the other dishes came nicely served as u can judge from the photos. the waiters are very efficient too, from filing up the empty glasses to informing the kitchen staff to get ready the next batch of dishes to be served. the only disappointing part is the limited selection of desserts.
Broccoli with stir fry seafood with egg white

Hidden Treasure @ Grassroots Club



We actually found this place by accident as we are looking for a place to hold our church upcoming anniversary dinner. This restaurant was opened by Gim Tim Pte Ltd. A well known restaurant in the Ang Mo Kio area with its loyal follower.

Since we just settle the paper work for the booking, we decided to have a little food tasting to see quality of the food. We ordered:

Broccoli with stir fry seafood with egg white.

Crispy Chicken (half)

Venison with Spring Onion

Seafood Fried Rice with XO Sauce.

During the month of May, they have this promotion from $12 instead of $18. The broccoli is crispy,as it must topped with the excellent sauce. The scallops and prawns tender and cooked to perfection. The egg white is nicely coated the seafood, it is soft and full of flavour and finished off with sprinkle of tobiko on top. Yummyyy.

The crispy chicken is good. It is nicely marinated, crispy skin, with moist and succulent meat. What else can you ask for. The venison, we purposely ask it to be cooked in the most simple way, with spring onion. We want to see how good is the chef, and he did not disappoint. The meat is tender, not over cooked. You can taste the character of the meat and it is nicely balance with the light sauce and spring onion.

For the Fried Rice, it is good but not great. We thought the fried rice will have tobiko in it for texture, but instead it is an XO fried rice. The XO sauce got a bit of spicy kick in it, but not overpowering, lightly seasoned but I find the fried rice is a bit soft and soggy. A nice crunchy texture in it will be great.

Location: This place is actually a hidden find. I don't think people outside Ang Mo Kio, or people that ever visited Grass Root club will know about this restaurant. I am glad that I have found it. Parking is not an issue, as the is a lot of lots in club or at the sports complex behind. Ambiance: The restaurant looks new, cosy, bright and looks maintain. Great job to the team. Service is good and attentive. The food still come at a good timing on the night, even though they have a wedding banquet the other section of the restaurant.

Overall: We actually like this place, as the food is very good, nicely seasoned ( or lightly seasoned) and very reasonable price. What else can you ask for in a restaurant :)

Cozy Chinese Cuisine at Club

It was last year Chinese New Year that we had a lunch gathering. I wouldn't know this place if didn't suggested by a friend. As it is well-hidden inside the club, and not many people go there. So it was lovely surprise and enjoying lunch moment.

Our first and last visit to the restaurant

Visited the restaurant with my family for dim sum earlier today. The food was average - some of the dishes were slightly too salty.

Our dining experience at this restaurant was totally marred by the poor service and lack of customer orientation. They had a printed list of items for them to mark off all our orders - despite this, we had to remind the staff about 2 to 3 times that we were still missing some food items.

There was still 1 particular dish that we were waiting for after having been there for 1 hr and 10 mins only to have the staff informed us that while they did prepare the dish twice, both times, they have been served to the wrong table. I then told her that waiting time in between dishes have been very long and that they have been missing out items and asked if anything could be done for us? No acknowledgement apart for an apology. We were then presented with our bill and informed that she had forgotten to charge for 1 pax @ $1.50 for tea / towel. We gave her our credit card only to be presented with a bill with the additional $1.50 included for us to sign.

In most cases, most restaurants would have considered waiving the $1.50 knowing that customers were unhappy with the level of service and food...not this place. Not only did she not attempt to placate or appease after we expressed our displeasure, she didn't even considering waiving the $1.50 for our table.
