Wavve is a Western grill restaurant and pub available at an affordable neighborhood price range.
When I think of chilling out, Toa Payoh is not the first place on my mind but Wavve intends to change all that. Whilst the success rate of many who have tried to create chill out spots among residential areas has been mixed, the team behind Waave are not fazed by this and in fact believe that they would do well to tap on the workers around the HDB Hub, which I can safely say have the numbers.
On a recent preview, I got a chance to take a look at this sprawling chic restaurant and bar and tried some of their key dishes.
I started with the Mushroom Cappuccino, which was wonderful. I really liked the thickness and rich mushroom flavours that came with every slurp.
For the main courses, I tried the Royal Fillet Mignon. The quality of the beef used was excellent such that it came out tender and juicy despite being done medium-well.
I also tried the Salmon with Caribbean Fruit Salsa. I liked the fact that the salmon was not overdone like I have seen it time and time again. The fruit salsa however did not stand out and lacked any punch that would have taken away some of the fishy smell from the salmon.
Dessert was the Andrew's Unbeatable Pick Me Up Tiramisu. Served in a glass, it was a nice sweet way to end the meal.
Overall, I must say that the food was quite good and the setting informal, ideal for a first date. Now the question is whether they can convince the hardworking folk at Toa Payoh to take 5 near their office.
One complimentary word for this place "SUX"!
I bought the pax of 4 from Groupon. Called for reservation more than a week before and was told fully booked. My first question is have they survey and count the quantity of coupon they selling can fit to the volume of the place by before 30 nov 2013. Or they just wish to sell as much coupon as they can.
We went there this evening for some gathering. The service were freaking lousy, we ask for drink refill for couple of times but the staffs were no respond. Another who not busy also dont bother though they saw we ask for water refill. Btw, plain water charge for $1, to me is w**!!
Talk abt the food, Brazilian food display those food like salad, chinese "xi yang cai' soup, yang zhou fried rice, sushi, baked fish (to me more like steamed fish with chili paste), green vege with onion on top, spaghetti (uncooked) with olive oil, chocolate cake and pumpkin soup. It most like asian cuisine than Brazilian.
I took abt 15 minutes to come out with one type of barbequed food. The terrible part is most the time they offer with barbecued pineapple and corn than meat. The barbecued beef were hard outside but insude remain uncooked. The bacon chicken is totally taste nothing. Chicken wings, I would prefer any pasar malam stall than this. Barbecued pork is the one that I have no comment, cos this is the only acceptable meat for me.
Seriously, I wouldn't expect the food are as nice as display on the groupon website. But at least please show your sincerity. I thought previous reviews were bad cos they are may be too high requirement. but as we have all the feel of being cheated! And I feel sorry to my friends who came with empty stomach but wasted time for those tasteless food!
This place supposed be only a bistro or bar previously, I suspecting they doing buffet due to business wasn't good. But they have no planning or strategy for F&B, so just anyhow create a great name to attract ppl. To me is after this kind of bad experience, sure more bad comments shall be coming in. If there is no improvement, the business should be end soon.
We weren't expecting much having bought a 1 for 1 voucher on deal.com. Actually this is the first and last the I would do this. The salad bar was disappointing and the subsequent rodizio was worse. The beef was barely edible, and passador kept insisting to cut the meats onto a common plate rather than to individual plates.
