15 September 2012 Dinner

Ambience: Above average.


Food: Above average. Had the BBQ chicken ($15.50++). It was all right.


Value: Below average. Ok food and price. Disgusting health practices.


Service: Terrible. I requested a change of the vegetables to fries. The server not only did this, but changed my potato wedges to mashed potatoes as well. She also had problems understanding English. More importantly, the spoons for our table were not cleaned. There was literally a huge spot of food stain on the spoon. Not the type of minor mark that is sometimes unavoidable. But literally food still on it. Size is about 1 cm square in area. The other spoons weren’t too clean either. Disgusting.


Overall: Below average.

Ice cream cake

I was pleased with their ice cream cake. Very pretty and presentable! Who doesn't like ice cream? :)

Only for the ice-cream

Swensens is the regular dining place for me and my friends. It's not that the main courses or the side dishes there are delicious. It's just to satisfy our cravings for quality ice-cream.

The main courses on offer there are at best ordinary, with the Fish "n" Chips coming to mine. The better option would be the Mac "n" Cheese, which my friends raved about. For the baked pastas and rice, the ideal choice is to go to Pizza Hut or Pastamania since their baked dishes there are below expectations.

As mentioned above, the ice-cream is the main draw of this restaurant. Their different chocolate ice-creams with various toppings are big in portions, especially for a petite girl who had just finished a main course.

Recommended when there's ice-cream cravings.

family favourite meals

I had walked in to have a late lunch and the restaurant was pretty empty. But during dinner and lunch hours, be prepared for a queue. Serving family favourites such as the baked rice dishes, pasta and ice creams, my regular orders include the crayfish pasta and choc tower. I love the service there which is generally quite well mannered and efficient. There are ample tables and the lighting is cosy.

salmon baked rice

I was estatic when a Swensen outlet opened just a short bus ride away from my home. Now i could tuck into my fave salmon baked rice whenever I want. But do steer clear during meal times, especially the dinner crowd on the weekends as the queues can get ridiculously long even though the outlet was relatively spacious. Service was polite though I had slight difficulty getting the waiter's attention for a re-fill of ice water.
