We went to Palawan Beach this evening and the restaurant was closed. As in, it appeared to have shut forever, but on the Sentosa restaurant guide it is still listed at the beach address.
None of the Palawan restaurants were taking orders at 7 pm, so back we trudged. No matter, as we had seen Samundar's menu on the trip down the hill from the Cable Car at The Arches Restaurant, just near The Merlion statue.
The Arches is in a beautiful old building and the decor is quirky , to say the least. The restaurant seems to do a lot of tour bus buffets.
The a la carte section was empty. Coupled with the decor, this was not an auspicious beginning.
The service was really good throughout the evening. We could order off two menus, the western/Chinese and the Indian. All our food was really tasty and the price reasonable, despite being on Sentosa. We mainly had the Indian. Portion sizes were variable: spicy fries and tandoori chicken tikka were very big serves, the rogan josh and Goan fish curry not so big.
And there is iced tap water, not just bottled water. Always a plus for us as who wants to pay for bottled water when the tap water is so good?
So, in summary, a great place to eat at a reasonable price, with attentive staff, so long as you don't require ambience.
