I bought deal vouchers online for 20 pax for their HIGH TEA BUFFET. Even after a discounted price of $38/pax, it is considered quite a sum for what they served us. I was expecting sashimi, cold crab but they only have sushi. No fried chicken wings, but chopped chicken when you request for it from the station and we have to wait in Q while the server chop the chicken. The rest was normal local buffet spread, fried noodles, fried rice, braised duck etc, nothing special. The only dish I went for a second helping is the 'roti prata' more like a deep fried puff and I topped it with the Indian curry vegetable, and it was only because I took a small portion on the first round and nothing else entice me for a second helping. For desert, the durian cake disappeared soon after it appeared as it was not a huge one, and I waited for some time before they bring out another piece. Because I'm a durian lover, I enjoyed the durian puree but it's only a personal liking. I could not think of anything else worth mentioning, just the normal stuff. I'm disappointed as I was expecting a better spread and variety for the original price of $49.95 with GST.
But what was worth mentioning is the service. I give them a thumb's up. They are there so often to change your plates and clear the used ones, to top up your drinks and even fold your napkins while you are away from the table. For service, I wold give them an excellent rating.
Would I return? It's a NO. Not for that price even after discount.
