Need a minimum of 4 for their buffet - we went on a weekday night so the place was very quiet.
There isn't much variety on the menu
but the quality of the food is generally good.
Must-tries: Sambal prawns, Oatmeal prawns, Wasabi prawns, Roast chicken, Sambal Kang Kong, Sambal fish, Braised pork, Pan-grilled beef tenderloin, Mango cream and Ice-cream puff.
Each table can order one serving of chili crab, shark's fin soup, beijing duck and poached prawns - I highly recommend the crab! It was fresh and the sauce was well-done, better than some of those 'famous' seafood places.
Problem with an ala-carte buffet is the size of the portions they serve, so order the other dishes only if you're in a big group and everyone can have tasting portions without wasting food. The 4 of us couldn't try all the dishes on the menu because we were full from the few dishes we ordered.
The only dishes I would suggest avoiding is the deep-fried fish fillet (order the sambal fish instead) and the jellyfish (you can get nicer ones even at supermarkets).
Prices were in fact cheaper at 27.80++ instead of 29.80++ as listed on the website, because it was a weekday. Highly recommended if you are looking for a zi-char, alacarte buffet.
As for the service, it was better than described in the previous reviews. Not stellar, but nothing that will turn me off from future visits.
