It was my dad's birthday so had a private dinner for 3 for our "Iftar" (breaking of fast). Quite empty with decent ambience and service. However something was just lacking. You know that feeling of it just could be better? Not saying the service was bad. It was ok just that something was missing.
Food wise we ordered the Finger MADness for 4, Fish & Chips, Grilled Chicken in Black Pepper Sauce and Spaghetti with Sambal Seafood with a side order of the soup of the day, Cream of Mushroom.
The Fish & Chips were kinda lackluster. There was probably too much egg in the batter. My mum mentioned that it was very egg-y and she could barely finish her first piece.
The Grilled Chicken with Black Pepper Sauce tasted abit off according to my dad. Some parts of the chicken barely cooked while others overdone. The sauce was nice though a tad "watered".
The Spaghetti... How I regret having it. Tasted like a take-away wet mee goreng kept for too long in the packet and reheated before serving. It was slightly soggy and the taste was just sickening after a few scoops. The saving grace was the springy prawns and the pieces of fish. AND my hunger cos of fasting. Otherwise I'd probably ask for it to be re-sent to the kitchen.
The Finger MADness for 4 aka Seafood platter was a mixed surprised. The prawns were good as were the spring rolls... The soft shelled c*** was... As i call it (pun intended). The was a strong fishy smell and taste to it, indicating it was either not fresh or not properly cooked. Could only taste the batter and strong seafood taste, not really crab, just a seafood taste.
The soup of the day was terrible. Yes it was creamy. Yes it was thick. Yes it had chopped/diced mushrooms and crushed black pepper. However, there was no taste. It felt like a lumpy soup. I had to pepper it a few times as well as salt it. Taste barely came.
Kinda disappointed with the food standard considering the price. I am giving the place the benefit of a doubt but from what i saw, the service was good, just somehow lacking.
