New rule, 2hrs time limit in place, 6-8pm, 8-10pm for Fri, Sat. Abolish this rule or be prepared to

New rule that is implemented not sure since when but at least from today onwards. So guys just a warning so you don't get surprised and pissed off when you walk in.

We get time limit with lower price probably at lunch, but when you are paying about 37++ for dinner, this is ridiculous.

I say I'm not patronising this place until they abolish this stupid rule.

For those who choose to live with it, you are pathetic. Come on, there are other good places out there.

change of management? :D

I used to frequent this place alot (once a month?) since school is nearby and price + spread is reasonable. Despite the gradual increase in price every now and then, I still continue to frequent them till they get REALLY crowded after more people get to know them, spread becoming smaller and their snail speed of replenishing the food turn me off so bad that I decided to boycott them for almost a year!

Bf decided to check out this place again and found huge improvement to the place! Better service staff and more varieties of food, even better than my first visit! The huge crowd is still present but the staff are more capable of handling them. We learnt that there was a change in management and the manager told us to give this place another try. We didnt regret it! Their food is also tastier than before though I'm not sure whether they use (alot of) MSG but I just love to drink the soup for shabu shabu! As with all buffets, there are some items which are not that fantastic, but for the price and the effort they put in to improve, I believe this is an awesome place! :D

Some of the items that we LOVE:

MILK PUDDING

Chocolate meringue

Strawberry cake

Kaijiki and salmon sashimi

Beef curry

Soft shell crab

Beef shabu shabu (fresh prawns too!)

Grilled scallop

Things that can be improve:

Soup of the day (imitation shark fin soup that is too starchy and tasteless)

Beef steak (the auntie doesnt seems to know how to cook steak)

Strawberry and yuzu sobert (they just tasted really weird to me)
