"Hail to the kings" was heard as we strolled into their restaurants. The servers put on with much respect making that moment quite a comfortable and welcoming entrance.

Knight Gawain meal was indeed carnivorous, as the name suggest everyone to dine as a king. The Roasted beef with black pepper sauce was quite hard and I felt that it was overcooked. The meat platter also came with Garlic Chicken Breast with Herbs and spice, Grilled porkloin with mushroom sauce which were suitable for 4 to 5 pax. These slabs of meat were placed over a bed of oven roasted potatoes, mixed vegetables with butter pumpkin sauce, Mesclun & Corn Salad and Pineapple was skewered as well as green apples drizzled with caramel Cinnamon Sauce.

Disappointing

If you like fried food and dry meat you will love this place...

Lookout for the office furniture (rolling leather office chairs and living room tables) to compliment the medieval theme (??).

Simply bad food

The steaks we ordered were of such poor quality - very gristly with a lot of it simply haveing to be spat out.  Nothing else about the food or the restaurant was any better - bland, poor quality food with inattentive, inefficient staff.

If you want quality meat or steak - clearly this is not the place to go.  Search elsewhere and you will be so much better off.

For drinks, I had the mango juice which is reasonably priced at $5. They do not serve fresh juices though, so skip this if you do not like artificial fruit juices. They do serve floats but the floats can get really filling if you order the banquet platter as their portions are huge and value for money.

First up, we had the Homemade Mushroom Soup ($9.50) served with a stick of garlic bread. The button and shiitake mushrooms are blended and made into a creamy mushroom soup. It would be good to share with at least 1 as the mushroom flavour is rather thick.

For starters, we also had Platter C ($24.90) which consists of chicken drumlets, calamari rings, prawn twisters, potato wedges, and sausage and bacon bites. The chicken drumlets were a favourite. Although they were all deep-fried, they were not oily. The calamari rings had the right texture and were not overly chewy. I also like the prawn twisters which were crispy and had a unique touch to it. In contrast to the deep-fried snacks, the salad served as a refreshing side...

Ended with 3 charges to my credit card which took 7 trips by staffs and 30 mins!

Arrival: 
Service was prompt and fast as we were the first few tables to arrive at 6.30pm reservation. 

Food:
Knight Lancelot (2-3 pax) -
 Medium Rare beef x 3 slices:  a little too thin but tastes alright and was one of the better tasting meat. 
Chicken leg x 1 slice: was pretty shocked that there's only 1 slice to share.  But it tastes tender and good. 
Prawns 3 pcs: tastes so so, not very fresh
Mussels ~ 5 pcs? : smeared with a little tomato paste,  not much flavor. 
Fish 1 pc: not fresh.  Meat is gluey and limp
Veggie side dish: love the potatoes but the long beans are too "old" and unchewable.

Knights of the round table Platter C:
Wanted to try the famed banana bacon bites but mine was wrapped with sausage????? And no one alerted me of the change. 

Overall we were pretty stuffed and the meal is satisfactory until we called for the bill....

First #1the full bill came of $140+... They took my Amex with palate privileges and came back #2 with the receipt revised with disc but the credit card charge slip still reflect  $140+. Alerted the waitress when I first spotted this obvious difference.
#3 time waitress came back with Bill and I decided to check thoroughly and realised I was only given 25% discount instead of the 3 pax discount of 35% ( they counted my 1 yr+  baby as 1 pax? Highlighted this and even show the palate website to waitress. 
#4 time another waitress came and try to explain to me that 4 pax discount is 25%.. and so I point to my baby in baby chair and she got it that there's only 3 pax.
#5 time the bill came back with yet another waitress and it is still at 25% disc... OMG!!!! This already took 30 mins and I decided to follow them to the cashier instead.  
#6 another staff met me at the cashier and try to explain to me again 25%... I Almost flipped.  Can't they count we are 3+1....? Needed my hub to shout at them what's so difficult before they got it right on the #7 time.... OMG! And my card was charged and reversed so many times that I have to call the bank to verify what was exactly charged.  T.T

Everyone please check your bill properly!
