Good service with good food but restricted dining time

They are having great food and service which i really felt, but the only unplasant thing which i encountered is the rushing and restricted time for dining.

as Steamboat need time to cook and boil, but we are given only a period of time to dine, seriously cery rush and stress and the service staff keep walking to our table and update us how much time left etc.

If Shabu Sai can really improve on this issue, overall Shabu Sai is a great place for dining in every area.

Hope there isn't any restriction time for either lunch or dinner.

I felt that the diner will know their limit of time while dining in Shabu Sai.

The streamboat only 90mins and have to leave on time. Or else, the waitress will chase you to leave. This streamboat was recommended by one of my friend. So we came and tried it out. I was enjoy steamboat with my friends,we did not notice already 90mins till the waitress came and off the streamboat. We thought can stay awhile for ice cream yet the waitress every 5 mins came to us, tell us time up and we have delay 5min,10mins and 15mins. There was no Q outside, still have a lot of space inside. We don't understand why want to chase us out faster like no table for others. End up spoilt our mood. My friend told me at suntec, they never chase customer, no idea why orchard central will chase customer go off. If want to enjoy steamboat, i will not recommend this place to my friends.

Always enjoy having dinner at Suntec City Outlet of Shabu Sai. Even though we need to wait waiters to get served as they seem like short hand, they are nice and understandable.
 
 That's why we decided to try this Orchard Central outlet yesterday (28/09/15) lunch time and every good image we had with Shabu Sai was gone.
 
 At the time we get there, there is only 3 or 4 tables and the rest is empty. But we needed to wait like 5-10mins outside till show us the seat. Kitchen worker saw us, waved to server and they saw us but nobody bothers to allocate us a seat until one guy came.
 
 And then after we ordered, only meat came first and needed to wait long for soup to come again.
 
 Worst thing is that they are chasing us out like we're eating there for free. Keep coming and saying only 10 minutes left, 5 minutes left and time is up.
 When I get the doorstep of restaurant is already like 12 (as time i tapped my EZ Link Card at Somerset MRT is 11:53), wait for them to give us a seat and wait for soup and everything they don't even bother to count and tell us that our time is up at 1.10 and kept chasing us out.
 
 It would be the first and last visit to this Orchard central outlet. Food is still ok but I can't take their bad service at all. I can even get better service at hawker centre. Remember that the guy in charge is Indian guy named "Sutha".
 
 Even though I did enjoy Shabu Sai (Suntec City) everytime, my experience with Orchard Central outlet is really really bad.
