High Tea at Olive Tree

Food/Drink 3 | Value 3 | Ambience 3 | Service 2
Total Reviews: 7

The spread is not that good cos it’s supposed to be High-Tea. But the cakes are quite nice. Service is a little slow as well. No iced water was served till we asked for it and that was 20 min after we sat down. Overall, it’s really not that worth for a $40 per pax.

Very Average Buffet (Citibank 1 for 1 S$68pax)

6 of us went to olive tree for the citibank 1 for 1 S$68pax weekday buffet on 15.1.2014. i had not been to this place for umpteen years, so thought gave it a try. the evening was fun but the food was very average, not expensive at S$34pax=S$40nett, but i agreed with my “fussy” friend = no need to spend S$40 on average food even though price was ok. 

the cold crayfish & scallops were not sweet (or like tasteless?) but quite ok if you add the hot sauce & tabasco (which means…)…the same with the cold flower crabs (nothing like teochew cold crab)..i took them with wasabi so it was ok..

the snails were good & oysters good too (i had 3 of each)..but 2 of my friends had bad tummy afterwards though i was ok.

the biggest letdown was sashimi! the photo above looked great, and i was telling my friend who didn’t take sashimi much that kajiki (swordfish) was 1 of my favourites & got him to take 2 pieces from my plate, but as it turned out it was the worst, completely tasteless! likewise the salmon. tako was average, not the good sweet ones.

the cold pasta & salad station was among the best. but this was also a station that most people gave a miss w/o trying. the spicy prawn salad was great & the chicken sausage risoni as well.

the prawn noodles station was self service which suited me fine as i took very little noodles & a lot of bean sprouts, prawns & fishcake & just enough of soup. i liked the very intense soup & had a 2nd helping, but i agreed with my “fussy” friend that the soup was too salty.

i also had some nasi padang dishes. the beef rending sambal chilli & ikan bilis with peanuts all quite average.

i skipped most cooked food stations in buffet (& that’s the reason i prefer semi-buffet places like the excellent one ninety, equinox & basilico where the main courses are served separately as fine dining dishes.

for olive tree though, i must say i liked all 3 main courses = braised lamb, duck & dory, all good dishes.

there was self service rojak station as well. i liked this too. & i had a helping of cheese. there was kikarangi, a light kiwi blue cheese i used to like. 

i not much dessert person so i found nothing in the wide array of dessert. the coconut & durian ice creams were very good though!

the restaurant was sadly only 30% full on a wednesday evening, it sure looked like a lot of wastage!

the service was very good though & the ambience was great!

the buffet also came with coffee, cappuccino, camomile tea etc.

i would rate this buffet below The Edge, but this was substantially cheaper at S$34 (only with the 1 for 1), for me like my friend, the price was ok but i won’t really come back here for this. equinox & one ninety are still the (semi) buffets for me.

High Tea at the Olive Tree

Went there a few weeks back to sample their high tea. The buffet spread included international cuisines like Indian, Chinese, Japanese and continental. More than the buffet, i enjoyed the dessert spread. Thumbs up for the blueberry cheesecake and red velvet cake :)
