At my recent visit to Match, I found myself dining with loud thumbing music. I must say that it was innovative, but it did not quite work for me.
I started out with some sauvignon blanc, which was a very good house pour I might add, but the positiveness of the dining experience ended there.
The starter of Prawn Cakes ($18) with crab did not quite go well. The breaded pastry was overfried and the insides were too dry.
For my main course, the Atlantic Cod ($36) was once again overcooked and dry and the herb peppery spices was to strong. The risotto cakes that came with it were also overdone.
Better was the Tenderloin ($42). Dry aged and done medium, it was a good piece of beef with a fairly hearty portion.
I also tried the Mac and Cheese ($10) on the side, which had no surprises.
Overall, more misses than hits from the food, and with the revolving house music giving me a headache, it is probably not a place I would return to.
Service was also patchy. Some had poor command of English, and some staff did not know about the UOB drink promotion, with the maitre d more interested in playing with her handphone outside than helping out.
