The usual variety of food at a worthy nett price

It is always good to go back the used-to-go buffet place.  First of all, they have been changing since my school days that I came to know this place.

The variety of food and soup base have extended to other cuisine like Korean.  For only 2 of us, and wouldn't want to spend much on limited food that we can consume.

It turned out that the food was so appetizing, we kept going to and fro from our table to the food counter to get more food and drinks.  Indeed, this is considered one of the invaluable option to eat a feast out of it.  And of course, the usual consequence is that our clothes will be always lingering with the BBQ smell.  Natural body perfume for me.

worst employer!

If you wish to work find job at Singapore, please careful about Zingrill Holdings Pte Ltd!
Zingrill Holdings Pte Ltd (formerly known as Tedston Pte Lted) is the owner of Seoul Garden, Seoul Garden Hot Pot, Breeks Cafe, Chef Noodles and so on. Zingrill also the subsidiary company belongs to Quantum Quest Pte Ltd. As they always use the term "Management Trainee", "Manager Trainee", "Kitchen Supervisor", "Kitchen Trainee", and tell you how many incentives their company will pay to you, in order to cheat people to work with them, as your job have to cover a lot of things or stations. No matter you are from Agent, or Walk In Interview, once you signed the contract with them, you will be the one of the victim. As you must finish the contract and at the same time they pay you only the fixed LOW pay within the contract period and no increment within the contract period.

Besides that, they also offer different types of salary package to different person, sometime they will ask you don't disclose your salary to other people as your pay is the highest, but actually your pay is the lowest. Once you signed the 1 or 2 years contract, then you have no choice and have to complete the contract, if not they will ask you to pay the big amount of money (the total basic pay within the contract period). The pay they offer to Filipino, Chinese from China, Indian from India, Burmese, Malaysian, Vietnamese are totally different.

Furthermore, if you ask them to do some adjustment on your low salary, they will tell you adjustment is base on performance, they never mention how to judge your performance, once you achieved good performance, then they will tell you the pay increase is base on outlet performance, for example: the outlet hit target, then you will get incentive, but it very seldom can hit the target and with very small amount.

The more crucial things in this company is they almost no follow minimum requirement of employment act. Some of the contract staffs do not have annual leave within their first 2 years contract period as minimum requirement established by Ministry of Manpower Singapore (7 days per year).
More info: http://www.mom.gov.sg/employment-practices/leave-and-holidays/Pages/annual-leave.aspx

I know that Singapore government continually promote the country as world class working environment with fair employment, that is why NTUC was established to involving in this part, so the Human Resource practices of this company is totally questionable by the Public.

Moreover, due to no local Singaporean want to join their company, because they offer VERY LOW pay. Thus, they employ the agent to recruit the foreign F&B student (such as from India) to work with them for 6 Months contract with only SGD600-1000, that required them to work 60 hours per week, is it humanity? 60 hours per week is quite suffer, moreover they just a student attachment. Because of saving the MOM quota and save money, then do not need to bother about the fairness and humanity? This type of student have no benefit and no Medical Claim to cover, once they fall in sick due to tiredness, but the medical bill have to pay by themselves and still need to owe working hour, this is totally unfair for them, as they have their rights too.

my top seoul garden choice

its not a bad place for all couples, families and friends to come. this branch offers a good variety and good ambience. but like all other stores, they always have tour groups coming in, especially when this store is bigger. tour groups usually make it noisier and maybe less food for you. ahha. good food, good service. as a seoul garden frequent visitor, this is my top choice.

Horrible night

Just yesterday night, I went to Ngee Ann city's Seoul Garden with my friend for dinner. It was 9.02pm. First, We had to pay for our bill before entering.

My friend went to take her share @ the buffet counter.

When she came back, she told me, there's not much left.

I didn't get what she meant until I went there myself.

So then, I saw meat not being refilled. Not much variety...(u'll have to see it urself) (and what happened to satay chicken?)

Shortly after I came back and sat down, we were told that the buffet counter is going to close in 10 minutes time. What the hell!

By the way, it's only around 9.30pm or something.... we haven't sat for a long time and we just started cooking our food.

They should inform the customers that the buffet counter is closing @ BEFORE the customer pay to come in for the dinner! It should be included in the standard protocol of service crew!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Furthermore, they didn't say that the ice cream section will still be available so what happen was, customers from all the tables rushed to the ice cream section and start digging the ice cream like there's a famine.

Oh. I forgot about our table setting.

2 fork, 1 spoon. So I asked for a spoon. The service crew who attended to me forgot about my spoon. It just doesn't make sense when u make several eye contact with the same person and he still can't remember that u asked for a spoon?

Oh well, so my friend stole a spoon from an empty table behind us.

Nearing 10pm, the table behind us has some customers cooking their food and having their dinner. I was facing that table and got horrified when the service crew came and started clearing the plates and such on the empty joined table beside the occupied table.

Tell me. If u're eating and u see someone clearing away plates and taking our the rubbish from the bin, will it spoil your appetite? I can say seeing this makes me feel like I'm eating in a foodcourt or Kopitiam. There's no difference. But at least kopitiam's table is separated from yours. THAT table is joined! It's so just beside those customers!!!

 Now that I've mentioned about service and ambience, let me tell you about the food.

$64.70 for 2 pax. including GST and service charge.

$32.35/pax for food not even worth $20. Tell me about it.

I can use that amount to dine @ Breeks just next door, Ichiban sushi, Fish and co. blarblarblar..... $15 steamboat @ Bugis taste better than Seoul Garden!

What happened to their quality and service?! seriously.

Bottom line is, buy your own groceries @ the supermart. No matter how bad is your cooking, it still taste nicer than Seoul Garden.

I did feedback to the counter lady. She's the most friendly person in the entire Seoul Garden. The guy beside her just looks glum. (if u wanna look glum in front of complaining customers, then u better not be there)

She gave us a "refund" in a way that the next time we visit seoul garden, it'll be free (capped @ $64.70 probably.)

BUT THE THING IS...I would never wanna go back there again!!!!!! =.=

Lunch @ Kuishinbo, Jurong point will end up like $32 including GST and Service charge, but do you know how worth it is that compared to Seoul Garden?

It's like Heaven and Hell man.

God.

Okies I finished my ranting...I mean review.

I say...

I used to enjoy having steamboat buffet at Seoul Garden but not anymore. I think that their service standard and quality of food have went down. Especially their service. They took so long to replenish the food and it was during the off-peak period that I went. The fish and prawns were not fresh, so disappointing. Maybe it's just this outlet. Hmm.. I don't know.
