Called 2 weeks ago wanting to book our Chinese New Year Reunion dinner here, but it was fully booked. We walked in for lunch today instead, and the place wasn’t too busy. The buffet lunch is priced at S$25.00++ per pax and we were pleasantly surprised to be given a discount for using a POSB credit card for payment.
There are several live cooking stations serving much loved local dishes.
Meat - Roast pork (lip smacking with the right proportion of crispy fat and lean meat), roast chicken and duck (crisp and crackling skin). These are real good that we forgo our usual chili.
Noodles - Wanton Mee, Laksa (soup is too mild and bland for our taste), Mee Siam, Fried Fish Soup with Bee Hoon as well as Sichuan Noodle (lack the sour and spicy punch), all prepared ala minute.
Dim Sum - Har Gao (shrimp dumpling), Siew Mai (chicken and shrimp dumpling), Char Siew Bao (barbeque pork bun), and Glutinous Rice wrapped in Lotus Leaf and fried carrot cake. I don’t really like Har Gao, but I ate 6 pieces here. Well, it’s good, fresh and served piping hot.
Clay Pot Favorites - Braised Chicken with Chestnut and Clay Pot Rice (another winner with its crispy aromatic rice mixed with the chicken and Chinese sausage)
Assorted Pizzas such as Hawaiian, Margarita, Fruitti Di Marei. We were too full by then, so only tried our usual Hawaiian which is good too with its thin crust.
Besides these live stations, there are the usual salad and desserts station serving cakes, pastries, the humble green bean soup (but cooked to perfection), plus coffee and tea.
I read of other reviews that said the variety is not much, but for S$25.00++ in Orchard area, I think this is quite a spread.
The ambiance is chic and service is attentive. This is a restaurant I will recommend.
