Soup Restaurant serves Chinese cuisine. They specializes in Herbal Soups and home-cooked dishes which makes it suitable for family gatherings and other celebrations.
We love their Samsui Ginger Chicken, Ah Kin Fan Shu Leaves, Beggar Ribs and Lingzhi Lean Pork Soup! We have been ordering the same dishes during our repeated visits for so many times that even the servers remember that. Anyway, nice ambience aside, their chairs aren't very comfortable though, and service wise, good but overly efficient. We noticed that they tend to clear the tables as soon as we finished our food and that applies to many of their outlets.
Took up the ala carte buffet at Hougang Mall outlet last night.
Manager briefed us that if there's food wastage, the price of the dish will be charged, which we were OK as we don't usually waste food. Since it was just me and my husband, we naturally asked the floor staff if the portions of the dishes were big, in which she replied that they were very small, no problem to order more selections. My husband and I are slight above average eaters when it comes to portions. To our horror, when the dishes came, they were the average tze char sized dishes. We only order 6 dishes, but had a hard time finishing, but we finally did, to avoid being charged. I've always frequented Soup Restaurant all over SG and usually go for ala carte. I'm not sure if it's biasness but I do feel that the quality of the samsui chicken for buffet seems lower, and mostly were breast meat. Other dishes were also not fantastic, we became really thirsty and sleepy after the meal.
Service from the other floor staff and manager were exceptionally good and attentive. However I will not recommend 2 pax to go for the ala carte buffet. Minimum 4 pax will be just nice as the portions are really quite big. Overall, we didn't enjoy the meal, and told ourselves that we will never come back for the buffet.
This place is famous for both the soups and chicken. They have a good variety of healthy double boiled soup. All traditional, tasty, healthy and non greasy soups. Sometimes when I want a simple meal, I will just pop in for a good soup.
The chicken dish is another must try item. If you have never ordered this dish, it is almost like you have never dined in Soup Restaurant before. The chicken is extremely tender and juicy. When eaten with the ginger dip, it is simply heavenly.
