“Nothing to 'wow' about and over-priced..... Not a pleasant experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

We, a group of 5 adults, were here during the recent X'mas week. It was pack at ground floor, so, we went up to 1st floor. I can feel the stickiness of the staircase. Then we saw a row of long tables with benches (unoccupied) once we were up there and other section with some people sitting. So, we decided to sit at the long benches and looking at the menu. There's a waitress that walked up & down the staircase few times but didn't entertain us. After around 5 minutes, she came with a black face saying that the area is "Staff Area" and asked us to move to the other sections. The tables were so sticky and the area is so small. Then, after few minutes, another 'black face' waitress came to take order. We were quite slow in ordering as we are still figuring out what to eat and what are the differences. We were trying to ask for her suggestions but she was showing very impatient face to us.
So, we ordered a set of the Mango Platters, mix ingredients of curry, coconut with 'xue gap' and banana split. The portion of the Mango Platters were very small and over-priced and the curry taste bad and not warm at all.
Overall, we will not patronise this shop again after such unpleasant and bad treatment from the waitresses and also the sticky and crowded environment. I rated it 3 instead of 2 just because of the coconut and banana split taste OK.

“Nice desserts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

This dessert shop has many branches. Indeed, its mango desserts and coconut desserts are quite nice. Not stingy with the fillings too. A good place to drop by after dinner. Not expensive either.

“H1”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

If you are a lover of mango sticky rice. Order H1. It is divine.the glutinous rice balls are a perfect substitute for the usual pearls you find in dribk. Brilliant idea i must say. The entire taste and texture of the drink is really so good. Actually tastes better than mango sticky rice itself. MUST BUY.
