I ordered a black forest cake 2kg for my mom's b'day surprise because I was told that raffles offer really good cakes. Once I cut the cake only I realized that there weren't any fruits nor anything related to a black forest cake. The icing...More

The food itself at the Raffles is quite good. It has it's ups and downs but nothing that can be really faulted. But like someone else had said, the ambience could use a little boosting. I'd recommend for take-aways.

The place is so dark and run down look with cobwebs here and there with lot of dust. The food is no special and the spices and salt are not at right amounts. So obviously you can't expect a tasty meal. The only good thing...More

There was nothing to like. Surly service, slow to acknowledge we were even there. The food choice was awful, as a vegetarian, in Asia I would expect something, anything that wasn't concealed in deep frying. Won't go back ever.

Used to have good quality food in a nice simple place. Standards have gone down horribly. The popular lunch buffet was lousy, just 6 dishes, 2 of which had run out and they showed no sign of replenishing them until we asked. Desert was fruit...More

The restaurant lacked any of the vibrancy of the city, with piped in elevator music, and listless staff. The wine list was deimated and the Chablis we ended up with tasted like sherry. The vodka in a vodka and tonic was cheap and nasty. Some...More
