Average Food, terrible service

During lunch at Bugis, getting a good place is a challenge although there are tonnes of food choices here because its packed everywhere. I wouldn't normally come here as they are quite expensive and honestly not that fantastic food served.

But last monday was a visit I won't be forgetting for some time. The food as I said, is average. The service is terrible. I can tell you that my 3 colleagues and I spent more time trying to get the attention of the staff to place order and even to get the bill than we did actually eating and talking.

The chefs precooking the pastas also tend to glare at you if you keep watching them cook. What's the point of the see through glass in that case?

Lovely pasta and desserts all these years

A quaint little Japanese-Western fusion restaurant located at Bugis Junction, and has been around for years (thankfully), well known for its delicious pasta and other dishes, Ma Maison was the choice for us that day as we headed for lunch.

The Buddy selected the famous Hamburger Steak Set (SGD$16.50) - juicy, thick patty with sunny side up egg, side vegetables and mashed potato, served with rice or burger. The burger was tender, grilled to perfect with hints of smokiness to its flavor, yet still retaining the lusciousness of beef's natural flavor. Pity the Buddy asked for the egg to be cooked fully, because the steak is best eaten with the egg yolk poked and infusing the steak, adding to the taste.

I had the Prawns and Scallops Gratin (SGD$13.80) - baked to a lovely golden color and slathered thickly with cheese. The huge fresh prawns and chewy scallops were delicious and lent credence to the cheesy pasta. The gratin melted in one's mouth literally, scoring points immediately.

For dessert, there was a slice of Grape Tart - huge, juicy grapes that were sweet, not sour. They did not taste processed, and are laid out beautifully in red and green tones, atop a crunchy biscuit base. I loved how the grapes popped literally in our mouths before we settled the sweetness with the more solid crusty base.

SO SO...

Friend told me it was great food the last they visited, tried personally but feel the food was so so, especially the Tonkatsu I ordered was so oily and not crispy at all when it reached my table. Service level was also bad as we have to try and grab their attention for quite a long time for more drinks, only to see a grumpy face as though we are a burden to her. There are many alternative restaurant serving the same kind of food in town area so it is no big deal for me.

TERRIBLE SERVICE. Dissapointed in the japanese manager!

Had tried the food before. It's good but it's not cheap. Anyway this time that i went, they served me a seat that i didn't like and i requested for a change of seat. I said i didn't mind waiting for another seat. The arrogant and proud japanese manager said no. At this time a table was cleared and i asked again if i could sit there. The managaer still said no and even had the audicity to ask us to queue all over again when we waited 20 minutes for our seats already. Bear in mind that all this happened simultaneously, no food was ordered yet and i was just seated. It wasn't even about the number of people. I had 2 pax and there were many 4 seater tables with 2 people as well. Absolutely ridiculous service! What's so hard about changing tables even when the customer is willing to wait for a table to be cleared. Still can't believe they asked us to queue again! So dissapointed in such service from a japanese somemore. Food may be good but so what if your service sucks! Ma maison needs to revaluate it's staff service standard.

Nice place nice food with good service

I've reserved a table 2 weeks in advance in order to celebrate my bf's bday on 4 June as I knew this restaurant is always packed during dinner time even is weekdays. My bf is 1st time visit here and he found here is very nice ambient. The waitress with smiley face lead us to our seat and reminded us there is a step & be careful. We sat down and we're served 2 glasses of plain water. We've ordered a clam chowder soup, tuna & prawn salad with thousand island. He ordered a hamburger steak and I ordered cuttlefish ink spaghetti as main course. The soup and salad were served with 5 minutes and that was pretty fast as the restaurant was full at that moment! While my bf away for toilet, the captain asked if the main courses need to be hold for a while and for me that was really very nice of the service provided. The main courses were served within 10 minutes after my bf returned to his seat. The foods are really nice and we were enjoying the food. I told my bf I wanted go to ladies but in fact I made him a surprise. I walk to bar counter and inform them I wish to have a slice of Oreo cheesecake with candle then I sneak to 1st floor to get a balloon for him. After I returned to restaurant, the captain lighted up the candle and I slowly walked towards to him with birthday song. He was so surprise and happy. We requested a waitress to take a photo for us. She cleaned the table for us before she take photo. After the 1st shot, she asked us to check if we satisfy with it and of cos we request for 1 more photo. I personally find that she is very kind and the service is really great. I would definitely return there agai
