“Lame show, but food is good”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

Food is very good. But the theme part is really lacking. The flying waiter is underwhelming--I thought it would at least provide some comical relief but it didn't even do that. We were served by a walking waiter not a waiter on skates. The place does not look as classy as it's predecessor--whose name I forgot--anyways it doesn't exist anymore :-(

“I CAN TAKE PICTURE WITH ONE SLING-DANCER”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

One thing that I will never forget was about my picture with the only Sling-Dancer when i enjoyed dinner there,
I could suggest you if you once visit in this Resto.. Remember since this is an international restaurant... all the waiter are using wheal-shoes when they serve the customer... watch out?
The negative one is.. the parking lot is a bit dim so be careful after finishing dinner there...you just ask the sling dancer to take foto with you... he is nice and kind. Thank you, dancer!

“Old restaurant not worth coming”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

My family just went there this evening for dinner, which is supposedly the "largest restaurant" but is based on a 1992 record.

The moment we reached there, we immediately knew it's already very old--21 years old in fact-- and broken down. But that won't be a problem.
When we wanted to order food, the waiter is very impatient and irritated even though the restaurant isn't very crowded. This makes us to order food under pressure and not comfortably.

And for the food, oh why bother. The food is mediocre, if not worse, and is not worth the money. The waiter came with cold, dry rice which seemed to have undergone some reheating since though the rice has gone cold, the rice pan was still retaining slight heat. I told the waiter the rice is cold, but the irritated waiter just touched the slightly warm pan and said "Why, this not very cold!", putting up an ugly expression on the face. Also it's better to have the dishes of similar kind and quality in other cheaper seafood restaurants.

The performance is not too good either. The performance is scheduled 6.30-7.30pm and 8-9pm. We came at 8pm and it seemed that the performance is highly disorganised since in between almost similar dances and the repeated "the flying waiter" (who just glided across the stage and the tables--unsafe!!!--holding a flaming dish) , there is always an at least 15 minutes of nothing having the performers behind the backstage not knowing what to do.

Even when we asked for the bill, we had to wait around 10 minutes as if they didn't want (or need) us to pay (when we ask for the bill there are very few customers remaining so it does not make any sense the waiter took so long)

We left the restaurant very unhappy, disappointed and dissatisfied.
