“7-course dinner is value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

A 7-course meal sounded an exciting idea and my wife and I walked in to Oriental Octopus to check it out. We were not disappointed.

The portions of each course were just right. It lets you enjoy the meal without feeling full too early in to it. Please do not have too much of expectation from the salad though. Had we ordered a-la-carte we would have still ordered similar fare but arrival of each course brought in an element of excitement to the whole thing.

Catherine was most attentive to our needs and so was the rest of the staff. Being pampered at the end of a very rainy and wet day was the ideal way of winding up.

We would do it again.

“No choice in the buffet menu”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2014

The food was quite average, the buffet menu did not have half the items available and the desserts were quite a joke.

The staff was quite friendly though. Food wasn't worth the money.

“good food...but”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

The great ambiance. The staff was great. But what we ordered was not available and instead of taking our consent of ordering something else they brought something else. Though the food was tasty but this is not acceptable. We don't have a issue of ordering something else but staff should always consult before doing something like this. Other than that it had great tasty food.
