Lime Restaurant @ Parkroyal on Pickering

For the full review with uploaded photos and quoted prices:

The new Parkroyal on Pickering is colossal. A foyer rises a few stories to a ceiling of wavy inverted terrace in cream, gray, slate and sepia, the upper side of which becomes a podium that elevates the hotel blocks with yet more slender pillars. Forest canopies and shrubbery overrun every possible corner of the facade and it could well fit the vision of a post-apocalyptic city fortress. If you take my word for it, by apocalypse, I actually meant global warming – the new Parkroyal Hotel along Pickering road is a BCA Green Mark Platinum Award recipient. And the hotel’s international buffet at Lime Restaurant seems to share its vibes. Lime Restaurant, in looks, is not a foreign body like most hotel restaurants. The design focus is roughly the same, albeit reassembled: mirrors as walls, for light and heat scattering, in tetris-like Mondrian; fibreglass and teak counter tops; walls of blond wood strips in similarly terraced bands. Against the woven seats and the floor-to-ceiling glass exterior, the restaurant feels cavernous. Move to the bar and the mood feels slightly subterranean. If you prefer lounging, the sofas are right behind the buffet stretch. There are no partitions or delineation and the space does not feel disjointed in any way. In fact, no one seems to stick out in any way, even the odd hotel guest who orders a la carte quietly in a corner. And strangers are equally game to share tables at the longer communal tables at the chacuterie table or the dessert table.
Most other times, a garden or greenhouse should be what you’re getting. Starters surround a portion of a rectangular counter top in the centre aisle. Split-headed spotlight stands line the table, punctuated by pots of terragon, basil and bell papers. This is where you will find a humble selection of bread (densely packed with carbs but not as much flavor) and cheese – the cheddar-friendly Comte, a delectable semi-soft Tomme de Savoie, and the Kikorangi, a slightly astringent blue cheese.
Seafood here comes racked on an ice rampart, piked with pieces of driftwood. The Canadian Oysters are small but as they say, rather sweet. Just be careful with the occasional bits of sand (karma might have to do with it). There are also Tiger Prawns, Clams, and Mussels, all fresh and good.
The mains are all about the meat. Lamb Shank has a deep nutty stew. The meat has parted ways with the bones, puzzingly, as they fall short of being off-the-bone tender. The Braised Chicken Chasseur was much more yielding in texture. The sauce, while not as rich, was reasonably complex with a demi-glace base that bubbles thickly with the heat from the induction plates.

Basking in the LIME-light again

Anyway, the previous two times, I was here for chilling out and brunch, therefore I was thrilled that I was coming back for dinner this time round. Their weekday evening dinner buffet costs around SGD$45.00 per pax, International cuisine, and this time round it seems there are more variety.

From the Peranakan counter to the fruit + dessert stations; from salad to bread and pasta, marinated meats, seafood and Japanese counters etc, we were all spoilt for choice. Service was very hospitable as per last visits, and the setting was very comfortable.

After the standard seafood, I enjoyed some Seafood Pie Tees that were utterly crispy on the exterior and generously filled with shrimps (and scallops?) within.

The friendly chef came over with a famous Kuala Lumpur dish aka the specials of the day - Kam Heong Crabs (translates literally from Cantonese to mean "golden fragrance"). It was special because it was prepared with chilli and dried shrimps, and garnished with fresh curry leaves plucked from the rooftop garden of the hotel itself. Hence, the usual sweetness of the crab meat was now donned with the delicious spiciness of curry flavor.

Then I moved on to some fresh greens, chicken cooked in gravy as well as Smoked Duck Breast. The latter was incredibly tasty, with a chewy, bouncy texture that gave way to tenderness once safely in the mouth.

Finally, time for some desserts. The Creme Brulee was quite all right - crisp sugared top with golden-custard underneath. The mini Chocolate Tart was rich in flavor and ganache but my favorite was the Passion Fruit Chocolate Tart, for obvious reasons (simply they were delicious).

My experience with Lime reservations

Thinking this is one place we have not tried their dinner buffet, I managed to reserve 7 seats for 3 Jan 2015 dinner buffet to celebrate my mother's birthday.  On 1 Jan 2015, the staff called to ask me whether I was confirmed with my reservation, I said "yes". I thought that was it. On 2 Jan 2015, which was ONE NIGHT before the birthday celebration (the staff suddenly called me at 7.30 pm), I was told over the phone that we would be assigned to sit at the counter table, which meant we had to sit on counter stools or high chairs. At first I thought I heard wrongly, after clarifying, indeed it was as what I thought. I told the staff that it would be inconvenient for the elderly to sit and they should have told me when I tried to reserve the seats, but she just apologised to me saying they were fully booked and could not offer me any solutions.  In the end, I have to do last minute reservations at other restaurants and make last minute arrangements with my other guests. If you were me, how would you feel about this and would you want to even patronise this place? I felt really crushed and I say they have lost 7 customers and more.

Lime, please buck up on your afternoon tea quality & service!

For full review & photos, please visit:
http://summerlovestoeat.blogspot.sg/2014/09/afternoon-tea-set-at-lime-parkroyal-on.html

Overall impression after 2 visits: Don't bother to come to Lime for afternoon tea!

Now they do not serve tea in a teapot anymore for Afternoon Tea set. And they have only 3 miserable selection for Tea - Earl Grey, Jasmine & Chamomile.. Now they just serve tea in a cup with the teabag for high tea. In this case, how can Lime indicated that with refreshing pot of tea in their website???

The service here never improve, yet getting worst during afternoon tea time. They will usually put guests at the back area for afternoon tea while their staff were mostly standing at the front either talking in a group or they were more concerned in preparing for the dinner buffet. And when i asked a few questions about the high tea, the staff seemed to be a bit impatient and wanted to leave. The staff here just simply don't bother with guests coming for afternoon tea. And the high tea items were not fresh, quality dropped till the max (Unacceptable)....

I really don't understand with the management at Lime.. Since you're all not interested to serve guests during afternoon tea time, then why bother to launch this high tea to torture your guests stomach and made them feel disappointed leaving Lime. This is the WORST place to have afternoon tea which explains why we were the only table to have high tea there on that day while other hotels were usually full house for high tea on Sat/Sun. Maybe the service for your buffet lunch/dinner is good but no one will come back for your afternoon tea again after first try..

Doesn't mean your afternoon tea prices is cheap & we have to accept such quality & service.
I think no matter how much we spent at Lime, hotel restaurants should provide the same level of service & quality at all times.. It's a pity that we can't come back for high tea again with such a nice ambience at Lime....

Great ambience with good food

We had a gathering of 28 people on Sept 5th, reservation was made about 10 days ago, the GRE (Mary and Nicole) are attentives and accomodative with our request. Thank you.

Evrything was perfect, the seafood is great, oysters and prawns are fresh, sashimi is good though i prefer a chef to slice it upon request. Salads not much selections but quality greens such as rockets and baby spinach with various dressings. 

Cold cuts salads was in an abscure place. Oriental and western food sections looks great, never try it cox too busy talking.

Main selling points are the desserts, ladies will love this.

Overall Lime offers a good variations of food, but lack of attention in details on the food quality and how it was presented. I ate a stale clam and a piece of soured honeydew.

Minor incident when 1 of us was late, so we pay for 27 people, the last person ordered an ala carte, but some of my friend passed an ice cream and a tiny glass of dessert for her. An indian manager (apologise, didnt get your name) want us to pay for the ala carte and the buffet fee. After few minutes of discussion, they decided to bill just the ala carte, it was a kind gesture from him. Thank you.

I higly recommend this place.
