Ala Carte Buffet Lunch

I have tried the set dinner at Peach Garden and felt that they lived up to their reputation of good food.

 

But it was a disappointing experience on my recent visit to Peach Garden.

My family was there to try out their ala carte buffet lunch.

 

Firstly, there are not many varieties in the Ala Carte Buffet Lunch Menu, mainly fried food and there was lack of vegetable dishes.

 

Secondly, the waiting time of serving of food was about 20 minutes.

Knowing that the serving portion for the dim sum was small, I made it a point to indicate the numbers of portions required for each item, ie. Spring Roll x 2. But we were served a plate of spring roll (3 pcs for 11 pax).

There was practically no second or third round of serving even though we have ordered for additional round of food.

 

We ordered the desserts which were served in minutes, after we finished the desserts, there was still no sight of our second order of food.

Fed-up, we called for bill and we were being charged for tidbit which was not served.

 

We were there from 12.30pm to 2.15pm. We were served only a single round of order which consisted of about 10-15 dishes including the dim sum.

 

We also notice that food of those tables who were not having the buffet, were served more promptly.

 

We are definitely not going back for any BUFFET. I have been to other restaurants that serve ala crate buffet for REAL.

Average Spend
$45 for 11 pax

Poor Service!! avoid holding your function at peach garden OCC!

I brought my wife and her parents for lunch to celebrate their birthday and had a bad experience. The service and food was horrible. We ordered the set menu and the staff and normally you would expect each dish to be served only when you finish the earlier one. The waitress just dumped the dishes and left them there. The dishes were also cold and poorly executed. You can get better food at cze char restaurants to be honest and is totally not something you would associate with a good restaurant. Can you imagine the waitress asking if they can serve dessert immediately after serving you a bowl of fried rice? Imagine if you host a wedding banquet there and this is how your guest are treated.


I emailed my feedback to the management and their response was pathetic as well. Did not ask for much details and just mentioned they will improve training. 

I would not recommend the restaurant to anyone especially if you are planning to hold important functions there. Poor service, poor food and lack of sincerity from the management in addressing complaints.

Hi Tea Dim Sum buffet

Went for their Hi Tea dim sum buffet with a group of 7. Listed on their flyer was stated more than 30 dim sum varieties. But in my opinion, not more than 15 dim sum items, the rest was those dishes like sweet sour pork, pork ribs, vegetables. Rice roll was slightly too thick. Even their mini egg tarts was not replenished just after first hour into the start of the buffet. Their porridge was nice though. Overall quite disappointed

Pre made dim sum?

The cheong fun was not soft, felt like it has been pre-made in central kitchen. The rest of the dim sum was quite disappointing while the seafood range was priced higher than Crystal Jade while offering lower quality level.
