Okay, I meant to write this review since last October 2013. Despite some raving good reviews here, this restaurant serves way average food for my liking. I brought my family here to celebrate my mum's birthday and I left disappointed with the quality of the food. No doubt, the ambience is great, the plating of the food were nice, but the taste does not match up. What's worst, way too pricey.
Their Signature Dirty Duck did not excite my taste buds. It was dry, hard and just average. I have had some other dishes like the Asparagus with Scallops but I will not elaborate further as they were all too average. The presentation for the deserts were good too, hyping it with dry ice underneath a flask, giving it a smoky effect when they serve it to you. All the deserts are presented in the same fashion mind you.
The deepest impression that this restaurant left on me, is the service. They had superb service. They greet you with smiles and attend to you well. Till you settled the bill. After we've paid the bill and left the place, my sister went back to the restaurant as she suspected that she dropped her car keys there. Back at the restaurant, she saw her car keys underneath the table. Although there were some staffs at the table, clearing it, none of the staffs helped her when she requested. As she was wearing a skirt, it was inconvenient for my sister to climb underneath the table to retrieve the keys. Subsequently, the staffs acknowledged that her car keys were there but still, no one bothered to help. They continued with their routine to clean up the table and went away, till my sister had to explicitly request for the staff to help her retrieve it. Epitome of "good" customer service. Money makes the world moves eh?
