Food is really nice but Staff really dishonest and Manger very unprofessional.

Food is really nice but Staff really dishonest and Manger very unprofessional.
 
 This even happened today at 4pm, Holland Village (HV) Branch.
 
 Details:
 
 Had one of the best Ranmen and Butariki Don last night (19th Dec) with my friends at HV Branch. During payment, I had handled over a $50 bill to the casher before I decided to change my mode of payment to Visa.
 
 I was given a Cash Receipt # 33154 dated 19th Dec, 2021hrs and my Visa Receipt. When I was home, I discovered that I had a missing $50 bill, which I may not have collected from the cashier.
 
 When back to the restaurant to verify if they had returned me the cash, and this is what happened!
 
 Manager brought a staff who claimed to have served me, and had returned me the cash. The staff also tried to convince me that she was the one who had served me by stating that I came with a group of friends when I told both the Manager and the Staff that she was not the one who had served me.
 
 Moments later, the actual staff who had served me saw me and acknowledge that she was the one who had served me. I confronted the staff who had lied and she apologies.
 
 I asked if the Manger can verity the accounts but she insisted that the cash float was tallied and did not provide any objective evidence but asked me to trust her.
 
 At the back of my mind, if the cash order was not void and my cash not returned, the cash float should also be tallied with the sales.
 
 Understanding the situation that the Staff was dishonest and the Manger not being very helpful, I decided to leave the restaurant and to pen this event in this forum.

Short, objective review - not recommended

I like the decor and feel of this place, but the ramen I had was very underwhelming.

Thought I'd try it out after seeing a friend's post on Instagram. Service staff were pleasant enough and happy to help, but this joint (Shaw House) is let down by a very medicore bowl of ramen. I don't know where the other reviewers tasted the umaminess - my shoyu was bland and the only noteworthy points were the runny ajitama and the smooth charsiew. Noodles weren't springy enough either.

Star-studded Ramen Restaurant

We felt a little peckish after a movie at Lido. Exploring the newly-refurbished Shaw Center Basement, we spotted a queue outside Sanpoutei Ramen. Many patrons were chattering away in Japanese. "If it's good enough for the Japanese community, it warrants a visit," we surmised quickly. Given the queue, we managed to secure a table in under 10 minutes. Stepping through the customary Noren curtains, we were greeted by the homey decor of bleached wood panels and tables. Piped-in jazz music gave it the aura of de rigueur Jap-sophistication. The menu featured a carefully-curated assortment of appetisers and ramen dishes. My  beautiful wife played it safe and went for the traditional soyu ramen. The serving was generous with chewy noodles cooked to perfection. The broth was slow-cooked for 6 hours and contained the rght nunances and flavours to please the most discerning palates. Feeling adventurous, I ordered cold noodles that had to be dipped in a bowl of Niigata sardine stock. Boy oh boy... I had never tasted such a flavourful combination, not even in Japan. I would safely say the quality of these handmade noodles rivaled any establishment in Tokyo. Slurping every last drop of the superb sauce, the waiter instructed me to pour a clear soup (which came in an accompanying thermos flask) into the empty bowl. The piping-hot seafood stock was a satisfying end to the meal. The final surprise came at the cashier. The bill was remarkably reasonable for such high food quality. The next time you like some ramen after the movies, come sample Sanpoutei's all-star cast. Surely, Bread Talk Group deserves an Oscar for bringing this celebrity restaurant to Singapore.
