“Good food, good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

The restaurant was inside the Stamford Plaza hotel. We had one dinner there - food was tasty and seemed reasonably priced. Staff were good, wine was good. All in all a pretty good meal.

“Not worth the visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

We were staying at the hotel and were given some drink vouchers from this restaurant.
It was almost empty when we arrived. We got seated quickly and the waiter took pour orders. After a while a waitress came to our table and asked us what we ordered, as the guy obviously couldn't remember. We were sharing dips as an entree, my partner wanted some red meat and I ordered a laksa.
It took them almost one hour to bring us the dips!!! We had to ask twice if they didn't forget us... The dips were good but the size of the serve was ridiculous...
Then we had to wait more for the mains. The laksa was VERY chili (it was precised on the menu some chili paste was provided on the side, so I was expecting the dish itself to be pretty mild), and I didn't like the taste at all. I did not eat it and we left. The waiter did not ask anything when he saw my dish had not been touched. A really bad experience in general.

“The Swish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

Simple but excellent quality meals, presented by very friendly staff. The view over North Terrace is great, and adds to the excellence of Swish.

“Tasty food, service very average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

It was mid-afternoon, cold and raining, just flew in and wanted a bite to eat at hotel. Only offering tapas style food at this time of day. Waitress was not friendly and never came back to ask if we wanted more drinks. We ordered a share platter which was great for an afternoon snack with a glass of wine. Food was very tasty, shame about the service.
