The fact that this restaurant has received 3 terrible ratings from the last 4 reviews is not a coincidence. Something is seriously wrong with this restaurant behind the scenes right now.
My friend took me to this restaurant for a weekday lunch and in all honesty, the restaurant has a really nice ambience to it. You can really enjoy the lovely garden view from your table. However, the food was a total disaster. For the truffle soup, the soup wasn’t puréed. Normally that would have been fine if the mushrooms were evenly chopped. However, that was not to be the case and the uneven bits of mushroom really spoilt the texture of what was otherwise a rather simple dish.
The other starter was the mussel pot (mussels served with herb butter) or simply “mussel chowder”. The “herb butter” sauce was simply inedible. It was merely boiled cream with thyme springs, absolutely disgusting.
The kobe steak (restaurant’s recommendation) for main course had to be sent back as we asked for “medium rare” but it was served “blue”. Roasted rack of lamb was also sent back for the same reason. Both of those dishes returned “well done,” looking back they might as well have just served us chicken sausages.
The final nail in the coffin was having to pay 230USD between the two of us (4 dishes and one beer) for a meal that had been completely sabotaged. Bitter irony for a place that claims to be “one of Southeast Asia’s finest restaurant”.
