Putien is one of Singapore's finest restaurant that has carved a niche for itself offering authentic Heng Hwa cuisine in our island city-state, aided by a superior reputation and an intrinsic desire to provide heart-warming comfort food for globetrotting city slickers.
I dislike this branch compared to its other branches.Was attracted by its opening promo buffet last year and queued for quite some time before getting in.The place was quite crammed.And worst of all, we still have to queue a straight line to get the food from the buffet table.Meaning if i am to get food a few times, i would have to requeue a few times, this is a total waste of time and appetite spoiler
For my full review with images, please visit:
Went to Pu Tien with several family
Greeted by the staff (as usual). Less than
2 minutes after we got seated, we were prompted to make our order. The staff
who took our order was very pushy & kept recommending stuffs. We ignored
her as we find it was quite rude to cut into customers’ conversation.
Shortly, we ordered a 4 Pax ($128++) Meal
from the Spring Set Menu with additional Tea Leaf Prawns & Medium sized
Seafood Fried Rice. Again… staff pushed for her Chinese tea ($4.90/cup), I have
to say it was not fantastic & it was exorbitantly priced – considering the quality.
I am an avid Chinese tea drinker myself.
4 “Spring” Appetiser – Small Tea Leaf Eggs
was quite good, other than that the rest of the three items was average at
best. Seaweed was salty.
Celery Toufu Soup – I think this is the
best of the lot, salty too. Soup was thick with nice consistency.
Steamed Seabass with Chili – Very obvious “soil-smell”,
the Chili & seasoning used was too much, I guess it is used to mask the “soil-smell”.
Deep Fried Pork Ribs – 6.5 / 10. OK.
Stir-fried Chives with Squid – 6 / 10. OK.
Squid properly cooked, nice & chewy.
Optional – Seafood fried rice. Tasted
exactly like most of the “zi-char” store. Nothing fantastic, yet over-priced.
Taking fried rice into comparison Ding Tai Fung’s Fried rice tasted a lot better.
Optional – Tea Leaf Prawns. 7 / 10. The
only dish worth recommending. Nuff said.
Complimentary Spring Fruit – Nicely
decorated, puny serving.
Food contain a lot of MSG, family
complained of thirsty half an hour after the meal.
As a whole, a firm “Not-recommended”. For
the price, I would rather go to some other Chinese restaurants at some of the
better known Hotels. Or rather go to Ding Tai Fung / Imperial Treasure Nan Bei
(Tampines One). Service levels of the waitresses definitely needs to be
improved, needs to keep their mouth shut when not asked for opinions.
