It was a weekday night. Good that it was not very full but parking was a big problem. The whole area was full of women with short tight skirts and bits of exposed bodies and ah lau standing outside sleazy lounges smoking. didn't have a good impression at all.
we were told curtly to queue outside as we walked in. waited for 5 mins and was led to a large table. out came a woman asking in Chinese what we want. 4 small spring rolls for $7! wow. Orchard Road prices! Beef noodles $6.50 and a plate of supposedly half cooked beef costs $13! overpriced. well let's see how the food tastes like.
food came very quickly, seems like they were already cooked and left at the table. the rolls were em.... average. the sauce that accompanied it taste like the chi cheong fun sauce with some peanuts. nothing special. the skin was thick and hard.
the beef noodles were a disappointment. the soup was laced with a layer of fat on top. yucks. the beef was tough. the supposedly half cooked beef was not too different, tough and not tasty. disappointing. $13! the pork rice is oily and salty.
the lousy food was topped off by poor service. there were many waitresses at the back, standing around talking loudly. the waitress who served us had no smile on her face. we asked for a bowl and she half turned around, half walked away and said ok reluctantly.
when the bill came, it was all in Vietnamese, so please check your bill correctly! an extra item was charged into our bill. when we asked the waitress waved using her hand and walked off. no apology no nothing. so rude.
she came back and told us loudly its $33. again no apology.
the overall experience is poor. it's just like a kopitiam when evereyone is talking loudly as it's so noisy. the waitresses were curt, abrupt and unfriendly. food is poor and overpriced. don't waste your time.
