Match occupies the former hip club Royal Room and is the Prive’s Group latest dining concept, which is a one-stop spot for diners to eat and chill till late. And we meant that food is served till 3am, at least for the bar snacks. The dining menu is broadly designed under the starters, mains and side dishes. I would say there is a very diverse mix of choices in the menu, from the starters such as the Freshly Shucked Oysters (market price) to Crispy Confit Pork Belly ($16) and Brick-Flattened ½ Chicken ($28) to the 48-Hour Braised Beef Short Rib ($34) for the mains. From the starters, we tried the Crispy Confit Pork Belly ($16) with Cauliflower Custard and Fine Onion Tart. I especially liked the cauliflower custard, which was so fine and creamy that I thought it was mashed potato initially. The pork belly was quite well done as well.

Dining in a disco...

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.

Terrible and Disappointing Experience

terrible experience at Match. Food was not great - Cod was tough (texture tasted more like lobster), oysters were terribly tasteless, salty and not fresh. But more importantly, the female manager was one of the worst I have ever experienced in any F&B establishments. After providing feedback that the oysters were bad (we had left 2 out of 4 back), not only was she not empathetic and apologetic, she insisted that there was nothing wrong with it, and that it was perfectly good. At an establishment like Match, you will expect better quality food than say what you get in the cold station of an average buffet place. But more importantly, you will expect decent attitude from the manager. Ruined our night and left with such distaste.
Having said that, the waiters and waitresses were very good. Great service from the staff on the floor - ironically better than their manager, but don't count on this place for a Special occasion with food and service that cannot afford to disappoint. Will never go back, nor recommend.
