Enjoyed Eating There

Had dim sum lunch there on Sunday 29 May 2011. I like the location, the atmosphere, the food and the price. They are also quite considerate when serving your food. They served all the savory items first, then the sweet items, so you don't have to have a mixed-up of tastes.

The quality of foods is above average, and there is enough variety to choose. The 30% discount applied to dimsum items only. Ala carte orders side dish are without discount. We ordered intestine (卤生肠)and cuttlefish (墨鱼). Both were nice.

One of the WORST experiences I ever had

I have traveled the world, and eaten in many countries. I must say that last night was one of the WORST dining experiences I ever had, and what worse than for this experience to happen in my own country, Singapore :(

My sis brought us to this restaurant last night to treat us to dinner, since we have been away for a year. We opted for their 4-course abalone and sharks' fin dinner, and at a cost of $216++, was a really horrid experience for the value, the food, and the service. The menu had the following food:

- Barbeque Combination

- Sharks fin with fish maw

- Stir-fried Garoupa Fillet

- Abalone in Stoneware

- Stir-fried daily greens

- Rice porridge with seafood

Value (2/10)

- I am giving one of the lowest ratings because this restaurant's portion for 4, is LITERALLY portion for 1. Each of the above (except for the rice porridge) was served in a small plate that is literally for 1 person in any restaurant I have been to.

Food (3/10)

- I am giving it a combined 3 rating because the abalone was not bad. However, the horrible part of it was that this is a Hong Kong restaurant, and they DID NOT get the sharks fin right. The sharks fin was not cooked properly, resulting in our eating sharks fin that was semi hard (much like chewing uncooked bee hoon). This was a DOWNRIGHT failure, and the night was totally ruined given that we are paying huge $$$ for this.

Service (1/10)

This is ZERO, because I am putting 110% blame on the manager for this. I informed the manager of the sharks fin problem, giving him a chance to rectify it. The ONLY thing he did was to tell me that he will feedback to the chef (what has this got to do with me? It's none of my business what he's going to say to the chef), other than that, NOTHING. No apologies, no initiative to appease the customer.

In all the places I have been, most restaurant managers would have done something to appease the customer, given that the customer is rightfully upset for something BELOW PAR. This restaurant did not do anything.

FAIL. AVOID THIS RESTAURANT AT ALL COSTS.

Happened to have lunch there with my friends last week. The dim sum was nothing special to be honest but wasnt too bad.

Tried the sharkfin soup and beef soup. Both were ok and not too expensive.

Service was mediocre.

Setting was semi-fine dining but presentation and dining wares have some catching up to do if it was to take the fine dining route.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.

Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
