Cheap $8 porridge buffet

Just found out about this really cheap porridge buffet at Tiong Bahru Plaza. For the price of $8.10 ( inclusive of GST ) and 20+ dishes of choices. I think is worth the visit. 
 
 Beside Porridge they also serve rice, among all the different choices of dish you can eat together with the porridge, I personally like the following:
 1. Salty Egg - nice and not too salty.
 2. Braised Pork belly- love it. Especially it is unlimited supply.
 3. Mei Cai pork belly - again, totally my of dish.
 4. Fish cake - surprisingly good.
 5. Boiled egg in soya sauces - just like egg. 
 6. Mince pork - go very well with the porridge. 
 
 The rest is also good. But these are the few I got a few repeat. 
 
 Totally going back there again when I have a craving for porridge.

MSG alert!

After taxes, the porridge buffet cost about $9 per pax ($6.90++) which is really a bargain, the dishes are mostly quite well prepared and I can taste that they used decents cuts of pork, chicken and fish in their dishes. The restaurant is tucked in the eatern end of Tiong Vahru plaza behind other eateries. The verdict arrived about 30min after my meal when I felt very thirsty, which means they were very generous with their MSG. Such a pity cause I am sure their dishes will taste quite decent with lesser or no MSG.

THE WORST service ever received

Went around TBP to scout for our next small gathering, we decided to test out Rajah Inn.

There is a skinny PRC waiter wearing specs seem to be having a bad day. While we were seated, she keep talking about how bad her colleague was and talk to us non stop till we told her off nicely.

She soon returned and having a bad attitude, every dish she served us, she put it on the table as if we've owed her a living

Food were so-so and ambiance were dark and not well lit. (Probably due to the wall colour)

We regretted our penny. Save your penny and go for nearby shops like Thai express, Lao Beijing or 18Chef.

go somewhere else for steamboat buffet, not here!

make a reservation earlier on but in the end have to wait for our seats cos apparently the servers didn't reserved our seats. waited for almost 10-15minutes before some diners settled their bill and we are to take their seat. so to me whether or not you call and make a reservation does not make a difference.

dont't know is it because of the crowd and full house, food that we ordered the second round didn't appear. friends and i decided not to wait anymore and ask for our dessert to serve in the end.

cooked food section is good especially their rojak chicken, tauhu telur, chicken wings. sambal kangkong is a little too oily and salty.

nothing much to shout out about their steamboat selection as what is available are mostly the common stuff.

i also realized the tables and very cramp to each other and very little walking space... the table we have is very cramp and near to the tables behind and in front of us.

aircon was switch off after 9.30pm (last serving), feel as if they are chasing away the diners as towards the end my friends and i are sweating and feeling very warm, and the servers are like in a rush or something, cleared away our food when we havent finish it and still wants it.

prices wise are a little steep for PH /eve of PH/weekends. for that amount of money i would rather try other places for a more decent buffet steamboat with prompt service.

the only consolation is that we are entitle to order their durian fitters which only available during PH/eve of PH/Weekends but 1 customer is only allow to order 1 fitter. i think that is the only food i think is excellent over there.

No frills

No frills, value for $$ buffet. In addition to the hotpot menu, u can order zi char as well. There's also dessert. Not much ambience and presentation but the food is good. The steamboat sets are also reasonable and can be shared between 2 small eaters.
