There was a lot of excitement from my peers, who have dined at Shashlik before they closed in November 2015, as the news of its reopening spread like wildfire. I haven't been to Shashlik myself but I have definitely heard both good and bad comments on the restaurant. They had maintained the overall feel and look of the Russo-Hainanese restaurant according to my foodie bestie. And most of the staff were rehired from before. We tried some of their signature dishes - so do read full review at gastronomy.sg!
City location, good food at reasonable prices. After reading previous reviews I had a low expectation for the service. It started off ok to my surprise. We asked for the baked Alaska (around 745-8pm) when placing our order and told sold out. I think they couldn't be bothered actually. So we didn't order any desert. After our meals we did. Told kitchen closed and no more desert/orders. 10min later we asked another staff member and we got desert. When clearing table they spilt some liquid from desert on my friends dress and didn't give a s*** about helping to clean it up. At 950 they turned half the lights off. I guess it's time to leave. By the time we paid and went out to the elevator half the staff were changed and waiting for the elevator too!
Shashlik is not a place that you often remember is there; tucked in a corner of one of Orchard Road's least exciting malls it's not somewhere you will stumble upon while looking for something to eat. But when you do remember it's there - and you should now since it's closing end of this year - you're in store for a great meal. It's a place I visited with family as a kid, and not much has changed. The staff are sometimes grumpy but all is forgiven when one tastes the food - and some will say the grumpy staff is part of the experience! My favourite is the borsch - I can never have enough. I also often have the chicken Kiev, and as a kid loved to see the Baked Alaska get set on fire. (Fine, I still love it.)
No matter how good the food (which I have tried for), the service is abysmal. No wonder it has to close down. Spoke to a staff who was too busy to accommodate a birthday request. They do not maintain a cancellation or waitlist. According to her, there is no such "service". She lamely asked me to walk in on the night of the birthday celebration itself. I might as well be talking to a doorknob.
